Playing golf next season at the 108 Resort Golf Course is going to be extra sweet for James Seeley of Mile 108, after winning the 108 Resort Extravaganza KP contest and laying claim to a free 2012 club membership.
Seeley landed his winning ball four feet one inch (124.5 centimetres) from the target pin, shooting from a distance of 135 yards (123.5 metres).
Second place winner of a two-night stay at the Merritt Golf and Country Club, with golf and a power cart was John Tomlinson of 100 Mile House who came within seven feet one inch (216 cm) of the target. Winner of the third-place prize of a golf shirt was Joanne Garrow of 108 Mile whose shot landed seven feet seven inches (213 cm) from the pin.
A total of 67 people paid $20 to give it a try, and according to Andy Wahnschaff, new golf pro at the 108 Resort Golf Course, there were several good shots made, considering the weather.
“It was cold and blustery, but people were still pretty enthusiastic.”
The golf resort also used the day to kick off its membership drive for the 2012 season and got 34 registrations, including five new names. Everyone who signed up that day had their name put into a draw for a reimbursement of their golf fees and other prizes and they also received a golf shirt. The draw will be made at the end of December.
“The membership drive is off to a good start,” says Wahnschaff. “We feel confident that we’ll hit 200 memberships.”
