Snow golf tourney tees off this weekend

Dust off those clubs, the 11th Annual Kinsmen Club of Windermere Valley Snow Golf on the Lake tournament is back.

Dust off those clubs, because the 11th Annual Kinsmen Club of Windermere Valley Snow Golf on the Lake tournament returns to Lake Windermere on February 4.

Registration for the event starts at 11a.m. at Ray Ray’s, with tee off at 12 p.m. Tickets are $30, and entrants must be at least 19 years old.

Organizer and founder Steve Kuffler says that the tournament has always proved extremely popular, and that there is a limit of 22 four-man teams.

“It’s really to get people out of the house after the Christmas holidays, people are looking for something to do,” Kuffler said. “It’s basically the best four-hour golf round of the year.”

The course is a full 18 holes, with individual holes ranging from about 80 to 200 yards. The round is a shotgun start, scramble format, in which the teams pick the best shot made by a member and all take their next shot from that spot. All funds raised go to support the Kinsmen Club for various communities programs and activities.

“I think my favourite part is just seeing the smiles on all the guys’ faces out there,” Kuffler said. “It’s an event that’s pretty uncommon, and always ends up full.”
