Cooke Municipal set to host Seniors, Mid-Masters Championships

For the second straight year Prince Albert’s Cooke Municipal Golf Course will host provincial golf championships.

The Senior (50+) Women’s, Senior (55+) Men’s, and Mid-Masters (40+) Championships will run coincidently from Monday to Wednesday beginning at 7:30 a.m. at the course that hosted the 2022 Amateur Championships last July. The senior event was slated to be at Cooke in 2020 but was rescheduled due to the pandemic. Now ready to welcome over 120 competitors to the “Gateway to the North” city General Manager Darcy Myers said the club is excited to add another successful event to the course’s historic resume.

“We look forward to hosting the 2023 Saskatchewan Senior Championships at the Cooke Municipal Golf Course. We hope everyone enjoys what our area has to offer,” Myers said.

The Senior Women’s Championship has 25 players in the field including two-time reigning champion Kim Walker of Regina.

Over 100 men will compete in their events, with many players competing in both championships if age eligible.

Weyburn’s Rick Hallberg has held the senior trophy for the last three years and four of the previous five, the Golf Kenosee player is also the back-to-back mid-masters title holder.

Saskatchewan will enter a team in both the Canadian Senior Women’s and Senior Men’s Championships, the winner of the mid-masters will receive a quota spot to the Canadian Mid-Amateur (25+) Championship as well.

Pending weather delays the champions will be crowned on Wednesday evening.
