Brampton, ON – The last stop on September’s championship schedule play is the Ontario Senior Men’s Better-Ball Championship, returning again from Brampton Golf Club. Happening this Thursday, September 22nd, 128 players will take to the beautiful course in hopes of ending the golf season with some strong play.
With a large field, it’s difficult to say which pairing will have the upper hand heading into the 40th playing of this event. With twosomes like home course favourites Jeff Watson and Gary Parker (Brampton GC), 2021 champions David Wilson and Eamonn McConnell (Toronto GC), past Senior Men’s Amateur Champion David Greenaway and his partner Greg Hotham (Barrie CC), along with many more, there’s incredible talent right across the tee sheet. However, with just 18-holes of competitive stroke play, the winning duo will need consistent play and strong teamwork to walk away with the coveted hardware.
Head Golf Professional Mike Long said, “the club is very pleased to continue to host and support this championship. The golf course is in great shape. The greens are smooth, and the rough is fairly thick.” The meandering fairways into a river valley below will be a “fair but challenging test of golf that will challenge all competitors.”
Play gets underway with a shotgun start at 1:15 pm. Visit our golf genius page here for more information about the championship.
