The 36th Annual Acadia Alumni Golf Tournament took place on Friday, July 28 at Ken-Wo Golf Club in New Minas, Nova Scotia. Twenty-six teams and more than 120 players took to the course on a slightly overcast day to celebrate good old-fashioned Acadia spirit and raise funds to support awards for incoming students from local high schools. Special guests included University President Dr. Peter Ricketts, Wolfville Mayor Jeff Cantwell and Acadia Alumni Association President Geoff Irvine (’87). Participants enjoyed 18 holes of golf, dinner and awards afterward. The overall Red Division champs were Branden Mosher (’08), Jon Chisholm (‘02), Mike Juurlink (’00) and Troy Dort (’02). Blue Division winners were Jeff Cummins, Matt Durant (’99), Kevin Duffie (’09), Scott Landry (’96) and Len Harvey (’03). Bill Rafuse (’72) was this year’s Chip in the Canoe winner and Verne Meister took the putting contest. Chris Prescott (’84), Tom Prescott (’58), Ward Carlson (’90), Tim Prescott (’88) and Bill Parker (’56) represented their alma mater in style once again with their unique, Acadia-branded attire and earned the Best-Dressed Award. A great time was had by all, and we look forward to seeing everyone next year! For more, please see our photo gallery.
