QUALICUM BEACH — From the desk of Elizabeth Marsland a reminder one of the Island’s longest running ladies golf tournaments is celebrating its silver anniversary July 15.
“When the first Ladies Open Golf Tournament at Eaglecrest Golf Club (or Golf and Country Club, as it was called at the time) was played in 1987, the course had only nine holes, and much of the present-day Eaglecrest subdivision was barely beyond the planning stage,” said Marsland.
“Even so, the event in its early years routinely attracted as many as 120 players, and seems to have been a “must do” for keen women golfers on the Island and Lower Mainland.
This year’s Eaglecrest 25th Anniversary Ladies Amateur tournament sees a much-revitalized Ladies Club looking forward to an event with 70 entrants and counting.
The tournament takes place on Friday, July 15.

There may still be space for late entrants.
