Ponoka foursome wins qualifier

A local team has advanced to the next stage in a national golf event.

Ponoka’s Richard Ursulak along with James Ursulak, Murray Ursulak and Ryan Lindstrand of Lacombe beat out 18 other teams to capture the RBC PGA Scramble qualifier held July 4 at the Ponoka Golf Club.

The foursome had the lowest overall net score of 21.9 under par with the next closest team more than two points back.

The team will now compete at the regional final — with a Canadian Professional Golf Association (CPGA) member as part of the team — slated for Aug. 24 at the prestigious Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge course with the winners of the 14 other Alberta North region qualifiers.

Six qualifiers remain to be played — Nisku’s Red Tail Landing (July 18), Yellowknife (July 18), Camrose (July 19), Derrick Golf and Winter Club in Edmonton (July 25), Morinville’s Cardiff Golf and Country Club (July 26) and Edson (Aug. 8). There is also an Alberta South region that has 10 events left to play before their regional final in Canmore Sept. 1.

The regional winners will then get to play in the 54-hole national final at the Cabot Links Resort in Inverness, Nova Scotia Oct. 4 to 6.
