Once again, the Gabriola International World Cup of Golf did not disappoint. This classic annual event managed to raise almost $200 that will find its way back to the Gabriola community.
According to the organizers, it was a lovely sunny day and 56 people registered. There were teams representing different countries or geographical areas. Team Australia drove in a first place finish followed by Teams Wales, Scotland and, staggering in afterwards, Team Liechtenstein. There were lots of prizes and everyone had fun.
Thanks to the players and all the volunteers that chipped in to help make this a great event.
An awesome steak dinner, expertly prepared by Lion Shirley and her culinary team, was provided by our principal sponsor Nesters Market. The event was hosted by our own Gabriola Golf and Country Club.
We would also like to thank our generous sponsors: WestJet, Coastal Community credit Union and Insurance, realtors Martin Velsen, Jude Briscoe and Guy and Tina, Gabriola Gravel and Excavating, Jim Noble, Pages Resort and Marina, Island Meat and Deli, Home Depot, BC Ferries, Butchart Gardens, Nanaimo Golf and Country Club, Aquality Water Services, Burnside Brewing, Somerset Farms, Concert on the Green, Eagle Quest Golf, Beban Park Golf, Golf West, Nanaimo Airport, and Gallery Press for the poster.
