The Kettle Valley Golf Club held its second annual Members and Friends Appreciation Tournament on a warm and sunny Saturday afternoon this weekend.

The tournament is the club’s way of saying thanks to its members in the form of an 18-hole tournament followed by prize presentations and a special dinner prepared by restaurant manager and chef Sam Hall. Eleven teams of five vied for prizes provided by the club and others donated by community businesses and club sponsors.

In summing up the season, one certainly impacted by the Rock Creek fire, club manager Aaron Rexin appeared pleased by 2015. “The fire slowed us down a bit,” Rexin said, “but other than those two weeks it’s been a great year.” He cited the excellent weather, an early start to the season and the terrific condition of the course as reasons for the club’s success.

As for the off-season, which typically begins in late October, Rexin foresees lots of effort going into slated improvements to both the course and the clubhouse. “We’re looking forward to the 2016 season. We’re going to keep ripping and tearing at this place doing improvements, and we’re going to make some upgrades to the course too.”

The weather forecast for the first two weeks of October is a golfer’s delight, featuring sunny skies and comfortable temperatures. If it holds, that forecast will likely ensure that the Kettle Valley Golf Club will be as busy as ever right through to the conclusion of another successful golfing season.
