2015 SONIC TRANSPORT OPEN | Northview Golf Club – Ridge Course
6,900 yards, Par 72 | Saturday, May 2, 2015
VGT TOURNAMENT IN REVIEW
Abbotsford’s Dean Reddicopp took till the final hole to decide his fate when he rolled in a 15 footer for eagle to give him a 2-shot victory over North Vancouver’s Matthew Steger. Reddicopp took a while for his round to get some momentum, trading off 2 birdies with 2 bogeys for an even par 36. But his back nine came on strong right away with birdies on #10 and #12, and add-on his eagle on 18 and Reddicopp had fired a 4-under par 68.
With one of VGT’s largest Amateur fields in its 9-year history with 103 golfers in the field, the Sonic Transport Open players were treated to some first class conditions on the Northview Ridge Golf Course and some exceptional prizing thanks to Title Sponsor Sonic Transport Ltd.
