One of Drumheller's own serious golf enthusiasts, who is also on the Golf Canada Rules Committee, Tom Zariski, has been given the opportunity for the honorable position of Head Golf Rules Referee for the TOYOTA Junior Golf World Cup in Japan in June.

"I was asked and agreed to be the Head Golf Rules Referee at the Toyota Junior World Cup of Golf Championship in Japan, in June," said Zariski. "Should be quite an interesting event. Literally some of the best junior golfers in the world."

You may also know Zariski in his role for one of the hard-working Councilors for the Town of Drumheller.

Zariski has been a Rules Referee for the past number of years with Alberta Golf and has worked himself up the ladder and is now on the Golf Canada Rules Committee and explains how the exciting opportunity is.

"I look at it firstly, as an honor and pleased to be asked to do this. As a former teacher, I'm always looking forward to learning experiences. Anything that I can do to help my refereeing and learn about what's going on in the rest of the world and how other organizations run tournaments and local rules. I'm looking forward to it," said Zariski.

His responsibilities for this event include being there two days early to set the course and arrange elements for this four-day tournament and the day following for the wrap up of the event.

"Golf Canada is very well known and very highly respected in the rules of golf. The rules committee for Golf Canada gets requests from literally all over the world to help participate. I've been asked to be the Head Referee for this event, to oversee and direct. There will be officials from all over the world as well," Zariski said.
