For the first time, Fairmont Hot Springs Resort will be presenting the 44th Annual East Kootenay Senior Men’s Open Golf Tournament.

This special event, happening on June 12 and 13, is open to seniors over 55 years of age, with four Flights per age group (55-59; 60-64; 65-79; 70+).

The tournament will be held on the Riverside and Mountainside golf courses.

The tournament will consist of 36-hole stroke play (with prizes for each Flight, plus spot prizes for participants). The entrance fee is $100 ($70 for Fairmont Hot Springs Resort members), which includes the tournament rounds, dinner on June 13, a $10 food and beverage voucher, and a June 12 evening shoot-out at Creekside Golf Course.

A special room rate of $99 per room, per night, based on two people sharing, will be available during the tournament as well.

The June 12 rounds will begin at Riverside at noon with a cross-over start. The June 13 rounds will begin at Mountainside at 9 a.m. with a shotgun start.

“We’re very happy to be holding the tournament here, as it travels around the area,” said Bill Kulyk, head golf professional at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort.

Winners at the tournament will qualify to play in the B.C. provincials, held in Squamish on August 9-11 this year.

Over 60 entrants have been registered for the tournament, with more expected to come, said Kulyk.

“It definitely gives us exposure, and it certainly gets people from all over to come, it’s beneficial that way, and for other areas too,” said Kulyk about Fairmont being the chosen location for the East Kootenay branch of the tournament.
