RESULTS for competition updated: Includes Sunday June 10th, 2012

The Rotary Club of Abbotsford’s Million Dollar Hole in One contest opened at Fraserglen Golf Course on June 2 and, before the weekend was out, there were already two holes in one.

On Sunday, both Lee Corfe and Dave Blanchard managed the feat and won some great prizes and a spot in the quarter-finals.

“It’s been a really great contest,” said Hugh Ellis, chair of the event.

“It was one of the better openings in the past six years.”

The event’s nine-day run culminated on June 10th when three finalists each had a shot at a pin 160 yards away. If any of those three balls found the hole, the lucky golfer who struck it wins $1 million. Unfortunately, this year none of the top three finalists managed to swing a hole in one during the final playoff.

Partial proceeds raised will be donated to the Campus of Care project being constructed next to Abbotsford Regional Hospital.The balance will go towards local Rotary projects.
