Holmes and Chicoyne top leaderboard after hot first round at Wolf Creek
Alberta Golf (Ponoka) – A clear blue sky day with little wind and temperatures in the 30s is not normally what you would expect at Wolf Creek Golf Resort in Ponoka but that’s exactly what the 120 competitors faced during round one of the Alberta Mens Amateur Championship presented by SVR Lawyers.
The tough Links Course still stood up as only 9 golfers shot under par. Jakob Chicoyne of Calgary continued his hot play, a course record tying 65 his last round in Medicine Hat last week at The Alberta Mens Amateur Championship followed by a 4 under 67 today for a share of the lead and the only amateur to shoot under par.

The professional purse is $27,000 with $7,000 going to the winner.
