Two big tournaments are in the works for the Ponoka Golf Club in town that will bring hundreds of players to the community.

The first event is the the Ladies’ Open, bringing more than 100 female athletes to town on Saturday, June 25. Tee off is set for 1 p.m.

The busy event sets the stage for the club’s second big tournament scheduled for two busy days starting Wednesday, June 29.

It is expected to bring more than 160 players as part of the Alberta Golf Association’s Mid-Amateur tournament. The competition is only open to golfers who have a handicap under eight and are at least 25-years old. It’s a big tournament, explained Ryan Moore, assistant professional golfer.

Only 80 players will make it to the finals round the next day.

Terrain and layout of ponds and bunkers help create a challenging environment. “The golf course itself is a lot of risk/rewards,” explained Moore.

The greens provide a balanced layout of par 3s, 4s and 5s. “There are some very challenging tree-line holes,” said Moore.

The more the course can hold these events the more golfers will check out the challenging, yet fun holes.
