Glengarry golf course crowns Alexandria Open champion
The Glengarry Golf and Country Club‘s 2023 champion of the Alexandria Open is Ben Lowe. He’s won the tournament at least three times though neither of us is exactly sure of the final count.
When asked for his thoughts on the August 12 competition, Ben tells me, “It was pretty good! I made a lot of big putts when I needed to. Battling with Rick Latreille was fun. He's a good friend of mine so it was enjoyable going toe-to-toe with him the whole day. Hopefully, we can have another good battle for this weekend’s club championship!”
Lowe shot a round of 74, edging Latreille be a single stroke. Jason Vickers placed third in the A flight with a score of 78.
The low net score in the group was 75, turned in by Maurice Bellefeuille.
Latreille took some solace in his runner-up finish as he won the draw for the free club membership for the 2024 season.
In the B flight division, Dave Montone topped the field on low gross score, shooting 80 on the day. Lucien Bellefeuille placed second (82), while Marc Sauve was third (85). Tops in low net from JM Titley (75).
The C flight top finisher by low gross was John MacSweyn, with his round of 86. In second was Tyler Sauve (90), and in third was Marc Rolland (91). Dick Sauve won low net honours with his 76.
Dale MacDonald golfed his way to the low gross win in the Senior division, firing a round of 89. Denis Barsalo (90) placed second, this John MacLeod (91) third. Rejean Menard won the low net with his 78.
Club captain Jean Marc Titley explains that the flights see players grouped by their golf handicaps. A flight is 0-8.0, B flight is 8.1-14.0, and C flight is 14.1 +. the senior flight is open to golfers aged 65+.
This year’s event included 43 participants. Prizes were awarded to the top three low gross scores and the top low net score in each flight.
