The Fernie Golf Club hosted two different tournaments recently.
July 7 was the Club’s Men’s League event.
The second event was the Fernie Open, played on Saturday July 10 and Sunday July 11 — the largest non-club championship tournament to be held since the advent of the pandemic.
The total field, still limited because of Covid-19, was 75 competitors, 20 of whom came from outside the valley, from as far away as Kimberley, Cranbrook, Calgary and Creston.
The two-day tournament was organized according to tee times, as opposed to a more usual shotgun start.
