Tricky weather for Kingland tournament

Kingland’s 24th annual best ball golf tournament was held July 3 and 4 amid some less than ideal conditions.
Over 50 players were registered, with a fee of $100 per person which included a steak barbeque dinner.
Saturday’s 9 a.m. shotgun start was delayed by half an hour due to a downpour. The rain cleared up allowing players to get on the course, only to be met by swarms of mosquitos and sand flies.


“I was joking about wearing a life jacket,” said Angela Carter.
A steak barbeque dinner was held for all the participants that evening, which was followed by a fun horse race.
The weather cleared up on Sunday, much to the relief of the golfers.
“We have just been praying for the weather to change, and it did,” said Jeff Brockway, manager of the course. “Everyone seemed to have fun.”
But despite an iffy start to the tournament, everyone who had registered, local or out of town, showed up to play.
A table of prizes was set up for the winners of various categories and holes, including a deep fryer, putters and clothing.
The winning team was Ron Dumas, Rick Nault, Dave Gauthier and Matt Maurice who finished with 126 after 36 holes.
Dallas Weaver, Alex Daigneault, Pat O’Conner and Steve Giguere came up in second place with a 136.
In a very close third place, with a 137, was Bob Halifax, Dave MacDonald, Kathy Irani and Steve Malesku.
The full results were unavailable as of press time.
