Estonian Life No. 39 2018
On September 22nd, 2018, 65 golfers registered to play at the 22nd Annual EGO Golf Tournament at the beautiful Nobleton Lakes Golf Course just north of Nobleton, Ontario. The weather was the perfect fall day at 17 degrees and sunny.
As the golfers arrived for registration at 11:00 am they were received by hot coffee and kringel. The kringels were donated by Ülle Veltmann Catering. Lunch was a choice of hamburger or sausage on a bun. After lunch the golfers took part in the putting contest run by Tony Kadai.
After a group photo, Jon Mozes, the Nobleton Lakes Golf Course Pro welcomed the EGO golfers and went over some of the rules pertaining to the scramble play. Jaak Jarve, EGO president also welcomed this year’s golfers and notified everybody of the new category of play for the “240” scramble players (where all four members’ ages add up to over 240).
At about 1:00 pm, the shotgun EGO tournament carts rolled out from the clubhouse to the awaiting tees and fairways. The course was in excellent shape, lots of water and many of the greens were protected by sand bunkers.
The individual winners were as follows:
Woods Hole #1- Ladies Longest Drive- Kim Van Dyke
Woods Hole #3- Straightest Drive- Harry Rannala
Woods Hole #5 Closest to the Pin (Ladies)- Katriina Sainthill

When the players came into the clubhouse after their round of golf they were treated to some pirukad before a buffet dinner of shaved roast beef, followed by dessert and coffee. Following dinner, Jaak Järve distributed out the awards and raffle winning prizes. The raffle generated $1040.00 for the EGO tournament. Some of the top prizes included free rounds of golf at the Nobleton Lakes golf course, Cognac bottles (sponsored by friends of Peeter Kopvillem and Alan Liik), Best Buy gift coupons, Baton Rouge Restaurant gift coupons, golfing books, wedges, a golf bag and dozens of golf balls.
The tournament was a huge success due to the participation of the players but also our hole sponsors- Estonian Foundation of Canada, Estonian Toronto Credit Union, Mark Vaher- Remax Premier, Heinsoo Insurance, Ülle Veltmann Catering, friends of Peeter Kopvillem and Allan Liik, Jack Lake Productions Inc., and a special thanks to Gary Brownslie from Weitzes Toyota for the $20,000 vehicle opportunity.
EGO (Estonian Golf Club of Ontario) would also like to thank Kariina Järve for her spotting duties on View Hole #3 and her registration services. Thanks again to Tõnu Kadai who managed the putting contest.
Thank you Jon Mozes, and the entire Nobleton Lakes Golf Course team, you made us feel at home again.
See you all next year, at our 23rd anniversary, at the Nobleton Lakes Golf Course on September 21st 2019!Jaak JärveKäesolev veebileht on Eesti Elu paberlehe tellijate toetatud, toeta sinagi ja telli leht juba täna:)PHOTOS
