Golfers take aim at health care at Nelson's Granite Pointe
Good times were had by all as the 11th annual Legacy Golf Tournament teed off at Granite Pointe in Nelson on Sunday.
The annual fundraiser for the Kootenay Lake Hospital Foundation had more than 50 golfers take part in the scramble format tournament. The golf was followed by a dinner and speeches.
Capping off the evening was the golf ball drop. The drop was part of a raffle and the Nelson Fire Department did the honours. The winning ball — that dropped into the hole from atop the ladder truck — was Mayor John Dooley. Dooley won the grand prize of a trip for two to the Prestige Oceanfront Resort in Sooke with dinner, spa and $1,000 spending money. Dooley donated $500 of his cash prize back to the Foundation.
