Long Drive Contest Winners

On Saturday July 5th the Cranbrook Sunrise Rotary Long Drive Contest was held at Wildstone's incredible driving range.  The scenic stage was set for a fun event that was held to raise money for KidSport locally.  

      KidSport™ provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport.

With tons of prizes for kids and adults in a variety of categories and contests including Long Drive and Closest to the Pin, we were pleased to see a high level of golf talent and some extremely long drives in the qualifying stage as contestants tried to win a share of the $800 purse.  The Top 8 qualifying drives on the range reached all the way from 330 to 380 yards long in the Men's Open Category.

A huge thanks to the Title Sponsor of the event Investors Group who provided gifts, prizes, event amenities and prize money.
