Some of Saskatchewan’s top senior golfers are set to tee off in the 2022 North Men’s Senior Golf Tournament at Cooke Municipal Golf Course beginning Wednesday.

Darcy Myers, the head professional at the Cooke Municipal Golf Course, said they expected a strong turnout for the event. So far they have over 100 entries.

“It’s going to be a very strong field,” Myers said. “We will have a lot of returning champions as well as new entries. It should be a very good competition over the two days.

The 36-hole tournament will take place after the first 18 holes. Golfers will be divided into flights to compete against players close to their skill level who achieved a similar score in the first round.

The tournament is open to golfers aged 55 and over. Myers says most attendees are looking forward to the event.

“There is a lot of excitement. The North Tournaments are the flagship events for Cooke Municipal. They are our main events and we have great tournament organizers, committees that run these events. They do a really good job of taking care of all players and out of town guests.

Tee times for the tournament will begin as early as 8 a.m. on Wednesday. Golfers will be organized into flights after play ends on Wednesday with a banquet to follow.

Prince Albert’s Martin Ring is the defending champion heading into Wednesday. Ring finished two strokes ahead of Rick Hallberg with a two-day total of 140.

Jim Scissons took first place in the Super Senior Division Championship Flight with a two-day score of 158. Scissors finished six shots ahead of John Batik, Glen Pryor and Harvey Braitenbach, who finished the tournament tied at three for second place.
