NOTL players compete in annual champions golf tourney

Players from the Niagara-on-the-Lake Golf Club represented NOTL at the annual Champion of Champions tournament in Port Colborne on Saturday.

It was a tough day on the links for a lot of the more than 80 golfers from around Niagara Region, all champions at various levels on their home courses.

The weather was excellent but the Port Colborne Golf and Country Club layout proved to be challenging.

In the top individual competitions, Dave Bunker of Cherry Hill Golf Club was the champ of champs, shooting a sizzling 3-under 69. He was the only golfer under par all day. James Grigjanis-Meusel of NOTL, with associate pro Ricky Watson caddying, tied for eighth place. 

After shooting 76, Alexandra Taylor of Lookout Point needed a one-hole playoff against Port Colborne's Stef Markovich to claim the women's title. NOTL club champ Yolanda Henry finished in the middle of the highly competitive field.

In the seniors flights, NOTL's Ginny Green was seventh, as was senior men's champ Jim McMacken.

Niagara-on-the-Lake's lone junior entrant, Bruce DeLuca, was eighth amid a packed field of young golfers.

NOTL club pro Billy Simkin was the official starter, announcing players as they teed off on the first hole.

MEN'S LEAGUE: Summer golf leagues are winding down and in NOTL Golf Club's Thursday men's play on Sept. 24 Jim McMacken led with an even-par 36.

In modified Stableford scoring, Brian Campbell was tops with 22 points followed by Doug Hernder with 21. McMacken, Dan Regan, Glenn Young and Stu Young all tied at 20.

No one took home the $360 net skins. Gross skins worth $30 each went to: Sean Simpson (#1), Alan Robb (#2), Jim Panetta (#4), Paul Dickson (#5) and John Reynolds (#8).
