Hi this is Fred Wallace with " Off the Wire " brought to you by your local Auto Logic, the Logical Choice.
Today is Day 1 for the 2016 OFSAA Boys Golf Championship at Saugeen Golf Club in Port Elgin.
The 2 day competition actually begins tomorrow, but today is a day for arrival, practice for some and a social function set for the club this evening.
With more than 90 years of history, all the contemporary amenities plus 27 challenging holes, ( although only Legacy & Sunset will be utilized ) I have no doubt that Saugeen will be an excellent host site both on the course and for their functions connected to the competition.
And good for Saugeen Golf to be the host of an OFSAA Championship.
This is pretty rare ground for Bluewater Athletics and for our region.
To the best of my knowledge, the old West Hill Secondary had a Girls OFSAA Basketball Championship in 1989 and sometime in the 90's, St Mary's had a Boys Volleyball Championship.
I may have missed an event over time, but the point is an OFSAA hosting opportunity doesn't happen often in these parts, but I'm confident Saugeen Golf Club, established in 1925, will be an excellent host for OFSAA Boys Golf this week.
I'm Fred Wallace
