Report on the 19th EGO GOLF TOURNAMENT Estonian Life
On September 12th, 2015, 70 golfers from across North America gathered for the 19th Annual EGO Golf Tournament at the beautiful Shawneeki Golf Course just east of Newmarket, Ontario. The weather was cool and cloudy during the putting contest and the first 14 holes of play. The final rounds were played in a light drizzle but all the players finished their rounds.
As the golfers arrived for registration they were received by hot coffee and kringel. Lunch was a choice of hamburger or bbq chicken breast on a bun. A le Coq beers imported from Estonia, were made available to all players at a subsidized price of $5.00 per beer. Tarmo Saks who had just arrived from Estonia a week earlier was our first player to get himself an imported Estonian beer from the bar.
George Lacy, the Shawneeki Golf Course Pro welcomed the EGO golfers and went over some of the rules pertaining to the scramble play. Jaak Jarve, EGO president also welcomed this year’s golfers and reminded them that, due to the tournament nature of this event, no “gimmies” or “mulligans” will be allowed for scoring purposes.
