Prescott Prevails In Return Of St. Lawrence District Golf Association Championship

The Prescott Golf Club, 18th hole approach

After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, the historic St. Lawrence District Golf Association Championship returned at the Prescott Golf Club.

First played in 1926, this tournament sees teams from the United States and Canada come together in friendly competition, and has become a staple in the regional golf scene for Eastern Ontario and Upper New York State. Unfortunately this year no teams from the U.S. decided to attend.

Ten teams competed for the title this past weekend, representing Prescott Golf Club, Cornwall Golf & Country Club, Brockville Country Club, Smiths Falls Golf & Country Club, Perth Golf Club, Mississippi Golf Club, Cataraqui Golf & Country Club, Garrison Golf & Curling Club, Amherstview Golf Club, and Gananoque Golf & Country Club.

This year it was the host club that took full advantage of their home course, as the squad from Prescott managed a 35-stroke victory over the Cornwall Golf and Country Club. That included an event-low total of 606 strokes in the final round, 32 strokes better than any other team could manage in the last stanza.

The winning Prescott group included Phil Patterson, Mark Wyatt, Jeremy Boyd, Derrick Lavery, Steve Martineau, Peyton Veltkamp, Craig Brennan, Peter Gilder, Gavin Prosser, and Brian Dean.

In the individual competition, Adam Folco of the Brockville Country Club prevailed in the Regular Division with scores of 73 and 71. Phil Patterson of Prescott was the top senior after posting rounds of 74 and 73, while the leading Junior was Prescott’s Peyton Veltkamp with a pair of 77s.
