Pro-am returns to Armstrong's Royal York

The first post-fire pro-am goes Friday at the Royal York Golf Club in Armstrong.

Myles Johnson of Spallumcheen knocked off his boss, Al Pisch, in a sudden-death playoff, in the 2009 tournament. Fire destroyed the clubhouse in a July, 2009 fire, forcing a two-year tourney hiatus.

“Our charity this year is the Kelowna General Hospital Cancer Unit special needs fund,” said Royal York pro Jason Wizniak. “We’ve got 18 pros and 90 players from all over the Interior.”

First-place purse for the pros is $1,700, while the amateurs on the winning team will take home a set of Callaway irons.

Keith Vandebrink of Hillview, and Jesse Crowe of Canoe Creek in Salmon Arm, both past winners of the tournament, will join Lee Ranger of The Rise in the pro division.

The event opens with an 11 a.m. shotgun start.
