Michael White (left) and Chase Rempel were only 6 shots off the lead after Saturday. Michael White put together a good Father’s Day round to clinch the title of Overall Low Net.

Our strong high school golf program offered many competitive entrants into the weekend challenge. Morton Johnston held it steady both days and took 1st Low Gross, while Chase Rempel golfed well and squeezed into the 1st Low Net position. Hayden Zieske finished 3rd Low Gross, while Hannah Gould finished 4th Low Gross and Eric Holland claimed 5th Low Gross honors.

Many on course prizes kept the golfers focused during their whole round. Before prizes were awarded on Sunday, the juniors were told about Laurie Currie and how he was instrumental in making his dream of Princeton having an 18-hole golf course become a reality for our community.
