Hirsch Creek Golf and Winter Club hummed with activity last weekend for the running of the highly successful His ‘n Hers Golf Tournament.
The club hosted 65 couples from Kitimat and surrounding towns in Northern B.C., including Terrace, Prince Rupert, Smithers, Houston and as far away as Vernon, Calgary, Vancouver Island, and even Saskatchewan!
The event was played in the spirit of the ‘Roaring 20’s’ that saw a number of amazing costumes and a fun theme for the event. The flights were named Grifters, Coppers and Prohibition instead of the usual A, B and C.
On Friday, May 31, members, guests and visitors played a practice round, enjoyed dinner and some entertaining Music Trivia to kick off the weekend. The music continued throughout the day on Saturday during the first round of golf.
The day ended with dinner and live music by Kitimat’s very own ‘Strange Ways’ lead by Paul Cabral and Garry Silva with Andrew Swan on bass and Peter Desousa on drums. They rocked the house!
Sunday morning breakfast was followed by a 10 a.m. shotgun start and a second buffet following the golf.
