Heavy rain on Saturday caused the opening round of the Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour’s Ford Series at Swan-e-set Bay Resort in Pitt Meadows, to be shortened to nine holes.
However great weather on Sunday allowed for a fine finish with players qualifying for high-level tournaments and three coming close to winning a 2016 Ford Focus SE in a hole-in-one contest.
There were several local competitors.
Amy Ehlert finished fifth in the U-15 girls class after shooting 51, 83, 134. She also sits fifth overall in the order of merit.
