    Dave George, the longtime general manager of Nk’mip Canyon Desert Golf Course, discovered golf relatively late in life.

    Baseball and fast-pitch softball were his sports of choice in his younger days. Then he caught the golf bug and George is happy he did. “I started golf at a late age but when I finally did take up the game I fell in love with it so much I quit playing ball, other than occasional tournaments, so I could concentrate on my golf,” George says.

    “It’s a therapeutic sport. It’s a sport that you can never, ever master. You are forever learning and it will frustrate you and then at another point it will make you ecstatic. The game has meant the world to me.”

    Christina Proteau is a multiple winner of national and provincial golf championships and also qualified to play in the 2011 U.S. Women’s Open.

    She cherishes each of those victories and all of the special moments she’s had playing the game she loves, but perhaps none of those events will be as meaningful as the one the Port Alberni native will compete in at the end of May.

    Proteau will not only play in the inaugural Indigenous Championship British Columbia, she has also agreed to serve as chair of the tournament, which goes May 28-30 at Nk’mip Canyon Desert Golf Course in Oliver.

  • Patrick Weeks Prevails In Playoff To Win B.C. Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship At Talking Rock

    By Brad Ziemer, British Columbia Golf

    CHASE, British Columbia — Seven final-round birdies weren’t enough, so Patrick Weeks made one more. The longtime Shaughnessy Golf & Country Club member birdied the first hole of a sudden-death playoff to beat Brent Pound of Kamloops and win the B.C. Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship at Talking Rock Golf Course.

    “This is amazing,” said Weeks. “I honestly can’t believe it is true. I have been second so many times — [in 2021] at the B.C. Amateur, then I lost in a playoff at Big Sky in the Mid-Am in 2014. This is redemption. I was two shots back the last time the Mid-Am was here at Talking Rock [in 2015] and they called off the final round due to rain. So this is poetic justice.”

  • Nonie Marler Goes Wire-to-Wire At B.C. Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship At Talking Rock, Shelly Stouffer Wins Mid-Master Title

    By Brad Ziemer, British Columbia Golf

    CHASE, British Columbia — Nonie Marler led from start to finish at the B.C. Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship, but that doesn’t mean she didn’t have to overcome a little adversity along the way.

    During the final round at Talking Rock Golf Course, Marler was cruising along with a three-shot lead when her tee ball on the par 4 13th hole sailed slightly right, struck the top of a tall tree, and was never seen again. 

    No one saw it come down — there’s a good chance it remained up in the tree V and suddenly Marler was under some pressure.

  • Nonie Marler, Ed Bellrose Grab First-Round Lead At B.C. Mid-Amateur Championships

    By Brad Ziemer, British Columbia Golf

    CHASE, British Columbia — Three back-nine birdies propelled Vancouver’s Nonie Marler to an even-par 72 and a four-shot lead after the first round of the B.C. Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship at Talking Rock Golf Course.

    Marler, the 2020 B.C. Mid-Am champion who plays out of Marine Drive Golf Club, birdied the 10th, 12th, and 15th holes to finish off her round nicely. Shelly Stouffer, the reigning B.C. Senior Women’s Champion from Nanoose Bay, is alone in second place after opening with a four-over 76.

    “We have some incredibly impressive venues that are set to play host to RBC PGA Scramble Regional Finals in 2022,” said PGA of Canada president Teejay Alderdice. “Players who make it through local qualifying are in for a very memorable day, especially with the improvements RBC and the PGA of Canada teams have worked to implement this year."

    As the premier amateur team golf tournament in the country, the 2022 edition of the RBC PGA Scramble expects to once again see more than 10,000 golfers participate in over 150 local qualifiers throughout the country. With the increase in participation in 2021, many clubs benefited from additional revenue after hosting RBC PGA Scramble qualifiers. With continued efforts to make the RBC PGA Scramble inclusive for all players, there will again be a guaranteed spot for an all-female team at each Regional Final.

    The PGA of Canada and RBC teams have been working on significant improvements to the program based on participant feedback. Specifically, a task force was organized to evaluate and identify potential improvements to the handicap stipulations. The Task Force took past participant feedback into account based on the program’s various player surveys. An announcement will be made with more information about the handicap amendments for 2022.

    In addition, we will be announcing further RBC PGA Scramble partnerships that will greatly improve the value for participants and host facilities.

    If you would like to register your facility to host a local qualifier, click here. The registration deadline for courses to register themselves as a local qualifying destination is April 16, 2022.

    Player registration is set to open April 4th.

  • Summerland Golf & Country Club Set To Host B.C. Women’s Amateur Championship

    By Brad Ziemer, British Columbia Golf

    British Columbia Golf’s 2021 championship season tees off June 22-25 when Summerland Golf & Country Club plays host to the 116th playing of the B.C. Women’s Amateur Championship. 

    A new champion will be crowned as Vancouver’s Michelle Liu, who at age 13 became the youngest winner of the championship in 2020 at Campbell River Golf Club, is not defending her title.

    It would not be surprising to see another teenage winner hoist the Flumerfelt Cup as the field includes several top junior players.
