Uxbridge, ON – The last stop on this week’s busy coverage of championship play is the Ontario Senior Men’s Better-Ball Championship at Brampton Golf Club.

 

Celebrating their centennial anniversary in 2021, the timeless parkland creation is excited to welcome competitors to the classic course. Hosting for the sixth time in the past seven years, Head Golf Professional Patrick Yashar, expressed that “the club is very pleased to continue to host and support this championship. The golf course is in great shape. The greens will be smooth, and the rough is fairly thick.” The meandering fairways into a river valley below, will be a “fair but difficult test of golf that will challenge all competitors”.

 

With the return of the championship after no tournament was held in 2020, the defending champions from 2019, Bruno Ardito and Gary Parker (Brampton GC), return to defend their title on home soil. Also in the mix could be 2017 champions, Frank Morris (Cutten Fields) & Tim Lee (Public Player). The winning duo will need consistent play and strong teamwork to walk away with the coveted hardware.

 

The players will take to the course starting at 8am on Thursday morning. A full list of previous champions of the event can be found on our website here. More information on the Ontario Senior Men’s Better-Ball Championship can be found on our Golf Genius page here
