Mark Brewer from WhiteVale Golf Club won the Ontario Senior Championship. Mark was 2-under for the tournament and finished his last holes by birding 4 of 5. The tournament was held at Dalewood Golf Club located in Colbourg, Ontario. Thank you to all the volunteers, I was told a small group on members took it upon themselves to fill all the divots on the course two weeks prior to being our hosts. Now that is great pride!
In the Season Finale at Brampton GC Mark Bennett and Jim Briggs were the team to beat in the annual better-ball. The pair won by 3 shots shooting a great score of 66 on a great course.
