The 23rd Annual Passion Play Golf Tournament went off without a hitch.
48 golfers enjoyed the tournament this past Friday, June 16. Every golfer received a duffle bag, embroidered cap, engraved keychain and a complimentary ticket to the John Michael Montgomery concert.
"Everybody that was there left with big smiles and prizes. We raised I think over $10,000 for the Passion Play," stated Vance Neudorf, Executive Director for the Passion Play.
All golfers who took part in the tournament had to play the first hole with Hickory Shafted golf clubs to simulate how the game was played 150 years ago.
"I tried them, but those things really go. We had one of our best holes for our team," Neudorf outlined. "It was great fun, I'm glad Tom (Zariski) put that together and the town got behind it for a Canada 150 celebration."
It's less than a month until the Canadian Badlands Passion Play takes over the valley and the money raised in this event will go towards the show.
"There's so much new stuff going on that people are calling this the year of the new because there's so many new facets to the play, how we're doing it and how we're putting it on," concluded Neudorf.
