Ice Golf Tournament celebrates 20th anniversary

Fore! The 20th anniversary of the Pigeon Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce Ice Golf Tournament takes place March 12.

Saydee Froom was having a blast getting ready for the golfing to begin during last year's ice golf at Pigeon Lake.

Fore! The 20th anniversary of the Pigeon Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce Ice Golf Tournament takes place March 12.

Steve Richards, chair of the Ice Golf Committee, says there are many special activities planned this year to commemorate the 20th anniversary.

Country singer Gene Gebo will serve as the entertainment and there is a $20,000 hole-in-one hole to match the year.

Richards says there will also be two bonus holes on the course with big prizes awaiting the winners. The first is the three-year lease on a Ford pickup and the other is a quad and side by side package.

The Ice Golf Tournament is an annual event held on the lake in Mulhurst Bay for people from all other the area to team up in their best St. Patrick’s Day dress for a day of laughs out on the ice.

“You don’t even have to golf, it’s just a day of fun,” said Richards.

“We set up a nine hold course right on the ice,” he added. The event is Texas scramble and takes about three to four hours to complete.

Following the golf it is off to the community league for the silent auction and dinner. “This is the largest fundraiser for the Pigeon Lake Chamber of Commerce,” said Richards.

There are two styles of tickets for the event, one for golf and dinner and one for just the dinner. Those looking to register can find more information at http://www.icegolf.ca and teams will be taken right up to the day of the event. However, Richards says registering earlier is encouraged for banquet planning purposes.
