A birdie on the 18th hole lifted Todd Castonguay to victory in the men’s event at the Ledgeview Club Championships last weekend.

Castonguay, a former junior hockey player who suited up for the Abbotsford Pilots and the New Westminster Bruins, opened the two-round tourney with a solid 69, and hung on for the win after shooting 76 in the second round. He edged B.C. senior team player Brian Bates and Zone 3 champion George Christensen for the title.

“The competition is pretty intense and winning a Ledgeview title means a lot,” said Castonguay, a first-time Ledgeview club champ.

On the net side, tennis coach Milan Kelesi squeaked out a one-stroke victory over Murray Conn, shooting 137, three under par, over the two rounds. Hans Weirich and Jon Revane finished tied third.

In the senior 55-plus division, Jim Pearce’s 146 gross earned him a playoff against Bates, who competed in both divisions. Pearce won the title at the second hole.

Paul Pike won the net side with two sparkling rounds of 75 for a three-stroke victory over Ewald Klatt.

Ron Carlton, who will be 78 this month, won the super seniors 65-plus title with rounds of 76 and 81. The super seniors squared 80-plus title was won by Roy Kelso with a 177 total.

On the ladies side, Val Haslam won her sixth club championship since 2003, shooting a two-day total of 153 to edge Heather Lang and Margaret Hong.

Irene Mitzell won the ladies net title, shooting 135 net to edge Krys Beketa. Grace Rustulka claimed the senior ladies championship with a score of 180, three strokes ahead of Heather Shaw, while Monica Kang won the super seniors for the second year in succession.
