Ponoka Re-Scheduled; Whitetail Crossing Still a "GO"
Jul 15, 2013
Monday, July 15, 1:30 p.m. --Can't fight Mother Nature. For the second time in three years, we have had to re-schedule the Ponoka Junior Open due to inclement weather conditions. A solid field of 65 juniors from across Alberta, including 14 junior girls, was on hand this morning in Ponoka, but just as the 9 a.m. shotgun rang out to start play, the skies opened again and drenched the kids and the golf course. Already soaked from heavy overnight rains, the Ponoka layout just could not absorb any more water and greens started to pool up and fairways were essentially one big area of casual water. We have re-scheduled the tournament to Monday, August 19th. We have phoned the tournament organizers at Whitetail Crossing GC at Mundare, site of tomorrow's event, and all systems are a "GO". They have had no rain yet today, and the course is in terrific shape. The club will accept last minute entries up to 5 p.m. this afternoon for any late comers. See everyone tomorrow in Mundare.
