The Flagstick Open Amateur Championship is set to return to the eQuinelle Golf Club in Kemptville, Ontario for 2017. This year’s edition will take place a little earlier than in the past, on May 20/21 to eliminate conflicts with many other golf events in the National Capital Region scheduled for the season ahead.
TMSI’s staff say they always look forward to hosting. “eQuinelle Golf Club is always excited to team up with our friends at Flagstick Magazine for the Flagstick Open. We share Flagstick’s commitment to golf in the region so it makes for a perfect partnership. We are always confident that eQuinelle’s championship layout will be sure to challenge and excite players and spectators alike. We are eager to showcase our course and the hospitality of our staff that have helped us establish a great customer base. We look for forward to seeing you at the Open.”
In 2016 Noah Steele of Kingston took the title with a score of -11 (68-65) tying the tournament record of Allen McGee. It was a pitched battle as Wesley Kwok of the Cedar Brae Golf & Country Club in Scarborough posted a -9 total (68-67) to take second place.
The championship golf course at eQuinelle is managed by TMSI Sports management and was designed by renowned designer Darrell Huxham. It has fast become a favoured layout among eastern Ontario golfers and its 7,000 yards makes for a perfect test for tournament players.
Known for its impeccable and fast putting surfaces, eQuinelle leaves competitors yearning to return for rounds on their own time.
