Kim Carrington defends Alberta Senior Ladies Championship

Alberta Golf (Edmonton) – For the 4th time in the past 6 years Kim Carrington of Calgary stands alone in Alberta as your Senior Ladies Champion. The 2019 champion defended her title with a very solid 1 over par 73 at The Glendale Golf and Country Club for a 5 shot victory over 2016 champion Lynn Kuehn. Carrington had 2 birdies and 3 bogeys on the front nine and then locked it down with 9 pars to finish to claim the title. Carrington didn’t even play golf in 2016 after undergoing foot surgery so she’s won 4 of the last 5 Alberta Senior Championships she’s entered.

The Cottonwood Golf and CC golfer previously spent 37 years at Willow Park Golf and CC in Calgary and she said the similarity of the big greens at both Willow Park and The Glendale Golf and CC helped her this week. She also said in March when the Covid-19 Pandemic hit she wasn’t even sure if she’d be playing golf this summer which makes this win even sweeter.
“It’s amazing to win and play a safe sport like golf,” Carrington admitted. ” Playing golf is probably the most normal part of our day right now, competing, seeing your friends, communicating with a putter or elbow tap, it was a great week to feel normal again.”
