National golf event comes to Spall

The township has been informed about the Royale Cup Canadian Women’s Seniors Golf Championships

A major sports event is swinging its way towards Spallumcheen.

The township has been informed that the Royale Cup Canadian Women’s Seniors Golf Championships will be at the Spallumcheen Golf and Country Club Aug. 19 to 22.

“We are very excited about this event,” said Coun. Andrew Casson.

The top senior players from every province, as well as the top international players, will be in attendance.

“These players generally do not travel alone and will be bringing family members to spend additional time visiting the area,” said Katrina Johnson, with the Spallumcheen Golf and Country Club.

“Our goal in hosting this event is to expose this group to the area and hope they will consider the area for a return visit or to relocate to this amazing location.”

Council has instructed township staff to investigate whether the event can be supported through advertising.

“We want to promote our community,” said Casson.

Other activities are also being considered.

“We are working with O’Keefe Ranch to get them involved and the event will be using local produce for catering,” said Brown.

“It will be a really good event for the community.”
