Rosebowl returning to Golf Saskatchewan calendar

After a one-year hiatus the Rosebowl Championship is back on the Golf Saskatchewan schedule.

The 50th edition of the women’s two-player team event will run on Aug. 12 and 13 at Katepwa Beach Golf Club (KBGC). Katewpa Beach was scheduled to host the event last year, but it was cancelled due to COVID-19. Golf Saskatchewan Manager of Sport and Championships Steve Ryde said getting the Rosebowl back on the schedule was important.

“The Rosebowl has a long history in the province obviously dating back half a century,” he said. “It’s a fun event with a shotgun start and a banquet under normal circumstances. Having the tournament last year was not an option. This season with shotguns now allowed we’re ready to welcome ladies from across the province to Katepwa for the milestone event.”

The Rosebowl Championship is an event geared towards women with higher handicaps (Between 33 and 72.4 per team) looking to compete in a tournament with less pressure and a social atmosphere on and off the course. Host committee chair Patricia Pratt said their club is excited to host the event.

“Katepwa Golf Club is excited again to host the Rosebowl Championship. We were especially excited to be awarded the 50th anniversary celebration of the event. We hope you come golf and celebrate with us,” Pratt said.

Registration details will be available on the Golf Saskatchewan website in the near future.
