Pigeon Lake Ice Golf features a $10

As if golfers didn’t already have dozens of reasons to attend the annual Pigeon Lake Ice Golf tournament coming up March 11, golfers will also have a chance to win $10,000.

Tournament chair Steve Richards said the popular winter golf tournament will also feature one “hole-in-one” prize of $10,000 which can be won on any of the event’s three nine-hole courses.

The prize is offered on hole #5 on each course, each hole being 160 yards from tee box to pin. Since all three courses have the prize offered, every golfer registered in the tournament will have a chance to win.

But Richards said the distance, wind and fact the fairways are on Pigeon Lake, he’s not expecting anyone to actually do it. “It would honestly have to be a miracle of some sort,” said Richards by phone Feb. 17.

Tournament golfers and guests will be happy to know the live entertainment booked is the very popular Moondogs from Wetaskiwin. Richards said every time he mentions the Moondogs name, people get excited. One member of the Moondogs is from the Pigeon Lake area.

Pigeon Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce president Rodger Cole pointed out the annual tournament is a major source of revenue for the organization.

“But what does ice golf mean to the Pigeon Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce? It has big meaning,” stated Cole in a press release. “Did you know that last year ice golf contributed over $11,000 to the chamber coffers, second only to our membership fees?

“Without ice golf our ability to ‘do what we do’ as an organization would be virtually lost. Our ability to keep our office open, to organize our promotional efforts, such as the annual electronic and hard copy fun maps, our presence at the annual Cottage Life Show held in Edmonton, our ability to lobby for our members when called upon our ability to hold member mixers and other special events just to name a few would be severely hampered.”

To learn more about ice golf, call the chamber office at 780-586-6263 on any Tuesday or Thursday, check the chamber website at http://www.pigeonlakechamber.ca or send an email to info@pigeonlakechamber.ca.
