Registrations Open For Battle For The Belts


Entries are now being taken for the Parkland Source for Sports Battle for the Belts 2.

The fund-raising golf tournament features a two-person tag team scramble and will be held at the Gilbert Plains Country Club (GPCC), July 25, with proceeds going to upgrades at the GPCC.

The entry fee is $120 and includes a meal and prizes, with a 10 a.m. shotgun start. To register and prepay, call Chris at 204-648-7989 or Danny at 204-572-7552.

Last year’s tournament was a sell out with 72 teams and organizer Danny Scott hopes that will be the case again this year.

“I’m going to put the posters up around town and start taking registrations and see how long it takes to, hopefully, sell out again,” he said. The tournament is open to anybody of any age, Scott said. “Anybody that wants to play can play,” he said, adding there will be seven flights, with equal prizes for all flights.
There will be two holes with a hole-in-one prize, one for $10,000 and the other $1,000.

Jarrett Newton and Chad Jones won last year’s inaugural tournament, which raised about $2,500. Scott said $500 was donated to the GPCC’s event centre.
