The weather was hot and the greens were hotter at the annual Mt. Brenton Men’s Amateur Golf tournament, Sept 10-11,

In all, 190 golfers convened to pitch, putt, and drive the weekend away.

According to organizers, participants came from all over Vancouver Island, the mainland and the U.S. to compete. A few participants were visiting from as far away as Australia and New Mexico.

Not only did the tournament bring together dozens of golfers for a great round on the links, money was also raised for a good cause. On Saturday, the 50/50 draw brought in $280 for the Pacific Parkinsons Research Institute in memory of Lyle Ehnes.

On Sunday, the 50/50 draw garnered $100 in proceeds for the Canadian National Institute for the Blind.
