Over 50 teams will tee it up today at Elk Ridge Golf Resort for the 2022 Saskatchewan Mixed Championship.
The alternate shot format event is a highlight on the Golf Saskatchewan calendar as couples, friends, and family members form teams and chase the title, or simply have a memorable weekend with their partner. Golf Saskatchewan Tournament Director Steve Ryde said once Elk Ridge was announced as the host for this event entry interest peaked.
“Elk Ridge is a premier facility in western Canada, for us to be able to come back to the resort after the change in management and host the mixed here where everything is right where you need, yeah we knew the site would be popular and we’re ecstatic to be at over 100 players. We know this will be an event to remember for years to come,” Ryde said.
Elk Ridge last hosted the Mixed Championship in 2018. Kathy Ziglo and Ian Larocque won the event that year, the duo are the reigning champions after winning the championship for the seventh time at Candle Lake this past year. Ziglo is coming off a Ladies Lobstick win on Friday as well.
Elk Ridge Head Professional Ryan Wells said welcoming golfers from across the province is exciting.
“We are very happy to be able to host the 2022 mixed provincials. Blaine (Fagnou) and his crew have the course in tournament shape for the PGA Tour Canada Elk Ridge Open at the end of June and have continued for all competitors of the Mixed Championship. The course will be a good challenge but also fair for all players. The community and staff are looking forward to showcasing our hospitality in all departments of the resort and all the changes the ownership group has done to this beautiful resort in it’s first year of reopening,” Wells said.
The event begins with a shotgun start at 11 a.m. Saturday. Day two will be a shotgun start at 8 a.m. on Sunday.
