108 Mile Golf Resort’s Pud Griffin Memorial Golf Tournament beats the rain

‘It went extremely well’

The 34th Annual Pud Griffin Memorial Golf Tournament wrapped up on July 14, escaping the weekend’s storm.

“It went extremely well. It was well organized. The weather held out for us because there was a big storm on Saturday night and we were just lucky the storms went around our golf and dinner times,” said Carol Lidstone, the chair of the tournament.

A total of 64 ladies came out to strike the balls, with 38 out of them being from out of town allowing old friends to be reunited.

“Everyone seemed to have a good time and lots of fun and good gold. Lots of friends from out of town got reacquainted, everything went really well,” said Lidstone.

Saturday’s night themed dinner also gave a chance for the ladies to dress up. The theme was ‘Around the World’.

“This year, the most common [costume] would be people dressing up representing Canada. We had a best costume parade and the winners were from Jamaica, Scotland and Switzerland. Their costumes were fantastic.”

Lidstone said the Pud Griffin Memorial Golf Tournament already has a theme and dates for next year. The tournament will take place on July 11 and 12, with the dinner theme being the ‘Roarin’ 20s’.
