Sundre Head Professional Scott Shouldice says it’s always an honour to host a provincial championship and he can’t wait for the best ball event to kick off the Alberta Golf championship season this year.
“We are very happy and excited to host the Alberta Golf Best Ball Championship again in 2024. Last year was an honour to host the brand new event for the first time and it was a huge success.” Shouldice said. “I heard nothing but positive feedback about the event, the venue, and the golf course so it’s no surprise that it will be back at Sundre Golf Club in 2024. Being the first event of the season a team event is the perfect way to start off the season and we are very excited to host it again in 2024.”
Registration for the 2024 Alberta Best Ball Championship is on Monday, April 1st.
