It was close, but Greg Palmer from Port Alberni won the West Coast Amateur by three strokes over Steve Watson, last Sunday at Alberni Golf Course.

Palmer shot a total of 141 over the weekend to win low gross. Steve Acland won low net with a combined 135.

“I did better this year,” said Palmer, who finished second to Courtenay’s Greg Koster in 2013.

“I was leading pretty much the whole time; it got a little close at the end when I hit it in the water on No. 16.”
