Grant, Frerichs Best at "The Hipple"

Jul 09, 2018

For 34 years, the Kevin Hipple Memorial Junior Open has been a mainstay of the Calgary and area junior golf scene. Founded by the Pinebrook GCC in memory of a former junior member who passed away far too early in life at age 14, "The Hipple" has a history of delivering an outstanding junior golf experience to thousands of young players over three decades plus. Today, the host club's Zach Grant toured his home layout in a tidy 3-over par 74 to nip up-and-comer Christian Hansen of River's Edge GC in Okotoks by a single shot. Jonathan Vinge, also of Pinebrook, finished solo third on 77. In the junior girls' division, Glencoe's Brooke Frerichs' 87 was tops among five junior girls on hand this morning. Full results from today's tournament will be on the Tour website by 6:30 p.m. this evening

Entries Closed for PInebrook; Carstairs and Olds Still Open

Jul 07, 2018

The Kevin Hipple Memorial Junior Open goes on Monday at Pinebrook GCC in Calgary and the club closed off entries at 4 p.m. on Friday. The draw will be available tomorrow so that you can get your tee time, which begin at 7:30 on Monday. The club has informed me that several juniors phoned late last night and again this morning wanting to get in, and while we understand the kids being disappointed they didn't get in, the fact remains that the club has been accepting entries for weeks, and if you missed the entry deadline, that's unfortunate but life has deadlines. For players looking for other McLennan Ross Tour events this week, we have the Carstairs Junior Open on Tuesday and Olds on Wednesday. As of noon on Saturday, both clubs are still accepting entries, so if you wish to compete in either or both tournament, please phone today to avoid disappointment.

Playoff Excitement in Innisfail!

Jul 03, 2018

Despite intermittent showers throughout the day, and faced with the challenge of one of the toughest golf courses on the McLennan Ross Junior Golf Tour, we managed a very successful tournament today for juniors from Edmonton, Calgary and throughout central Alberta. When the skies finally cleared late this afternoon, Chase Bodoano of Broadmoor had captured his first Tour win with an exciting sudden-victory playoff over his clubmate and good friend Mitch Desjarlais. Bodoano's birdie on the first extra hole bested Desjarlais' par after both players fired matching rounds of 78 during a pretty much steady drizzle all afternoon. Full results are now on the Tour website. More »
