Ladysmith Golf Club hosting kids’ tournament

There's still time to register for the Ladysmith Golf Club's Kids Open Golf Tournament on Aug. 11.

There is still a limited time to register for the Ladysmith Golf Club’s Kids Open Golf Tournament, being held Aug. 11 at 10 a.m.

Organizers are hoping to match or exceed last year’s registration of 22 players. With prizes for everyone and a barbecue after the game, the tournament promises a good time for all.

“It’s a fun day,” said LGC president Sylvia Smith. “It’s a good outing, and we encourage parental involvement.”

The tournament, which is being co-sponsored by the Chronicle, is open to kids aged six to 14 of all playing abilities.

“It’s an opportunity for young golfers to show their stuff,” said Rob Johnson. “Who’s Ladysmith’s best junior golfer?”

Johnson said the course is primed and ready to  go.

“Everything’s looking good; the course is in good shape and we’ve got a bunch of adults help supervise,” he said.

At press time, there were approximately nine golfers entered in the tournament.

To register or find out more information, call 250-245-7313. There is a fee of $5; however, golfing equipment will be provided.
