What we love about the game… even in the heat of the moment Brian Laubman congratulates his fellow competitor Frank Van Dornick on his playoff victory at the Alberta Senior at Henderson Lake GC.

Volunteers don’t just do the work. They make it work.

A place in history. The Alberta Boys get a close up look at the previous teams after capturing the Alberta/ Montana Ryder Cup.

The unsung heroes. Superintendents and turf care employees are instrumental in conducting a quality tournament. Thanks to these two from the Edmonton Petroleum G&CC at the Alberta Senior Ladies.

The summer of 2017 brought smoke from wildfires into the province but it didn’t hinder the golfers spirit. Here a team at the Alberta Interclub plays a par 3 at the Canmore G&CC. Unfortunately, the usual breathtaking mountain views were obstructed by the smoke.

Community events like the Calgary Food Fest are an opportunity to introduce newcomers to the game. Just watch out for Golfzilla!

The Canada Summer Games is the pinnacle of sport for many junior aged athletes. Taylor Stone and Ethan Choi took full advantage of the opportunity, even rubbing shoulders with Canadian icon Ron MacLean.

All hands on deck. The venue, sponsor, staff, committees and host club volunteers are a few of the essential ingredients to a successful championship. Thanks to this crew at the Alberta Ladies Amateur at the Red Deer G&CC for all of their hard work.
