The Ramsay Lampman Rhodes Mount Brenton Ladies Amateur Golf Tournament promises a swinging time and girls on the greens.

Now in its 11th year, the Aug. 18-19 tournament is open to all ages and levels of players, although it is restricted to amateurs only. Hole-in-one prizes are $10,000 in cash and a golf cart, and there will also be draw prizes and prizes for the gross and net scores, including TVs and golf course passes. Tee off is 1 p.m. on Aug. 18.

“It’s for ladies who love to golf and it’s a two-day tournament, and they get to meet old friends and new friends,” said Dar Michell, tournament committee chair. “It brings business to Chemainus and surrounding areas.”

There are currently about 40 golfers from all over the Island registered, but there is room for about 60 more.

“We’re hoping to get the numbers up this year,” Michell said.
