MICC hosts Thanksgiving tournament

Clubhouse manager Myrna Thomas congratulates the first place team in the tournament, Shelley Croft, Deb Woods, Keith Rogerson and Cory Croft.

GORDON—The Manitoulin Island Country Club (MICC) hosted its final tournament of the season this past Saturday—the annual Thanksgiving event.

There was some great golfing displayed during the day, especially from the top two finishers in the event. The team of Shelley Croft, Cory Croft, Deb Woods and Keith Rogerson posted an impressive 18 hole best ball score of 10 under par, 62, to take the top spot.

Just one shot behind at 63 and nine under par was the second place team of Norma Ense, Gary Verhaff, Jared Ense and Kaitlyn Hensen.

“I would like to thank all of you for coming out to participate in our final event of the year,” stated Myrna Thomas, MICC clubhouse manager. “I’d like to thank my wonderful staff for being behind me all summer long, the grounds staff, Dan Marois for his assistance over the last few seasons.”

Special prizes were presented, with the shot closest to the pumpkin-won by Allison Idle. The prize for longest drive on the men’s side went to Jared Ense and, for the ladies, Shelley Croft. The prize for closest to the pin on the second hole was won by Kaitlyn Hensen.
