The annual three-day Cariboo Open ran smoothly over the weekend attracting more than 80 golfers competing under COVID-19 rules at the 108 Golf Resort.
Defending champion Shane Wilkie once again took the prize for overall gross, while Shawn McManus took home the trophy for the low net champion. Father-son team Bill Harris and Trevor Harris won the 8th annual Fathers and Sons competition, which drew 10 teams this year.
“It was a great weekend, starting off with the weather,” organizer Bill Harris said. “The 108 Golf course was the best I’ve seen it at this time.”
Harris gave thanks to Lee Hansen, manager of the 108 golf course and his staff for their services, as well as all the volunteers and sponsors, including Regency Chrysler for the hole-in-one and all the other businesses that donated close to $8,000 in prizes.
