Sandpiper Golf Resort
Monday, April 5th

Professional Chad McAdieSandpiper Golf Resort favoured its own last Monday (April 5th) as Professional Chad McAdie claimed the 2010 VGT Sandpiper Classic title with an impressive round of 67 (-5). By the end of the afternoon the sun fought through the early rain and shone brightly on McAdie in a sudden-death playoff as Professionals Jeremy Paradis of Langley and Seann Harlingten of Capilano G&CC also shot 67 at the end of their rounds. McAdie posted 6 birdies on his card and earned a cheque for $1,200 and 1,500 points. This quickly vaulted him to third place on the 2010 Cleveland/Srixon Order of Merit – a race to win a $5,000 U.S. entry to 2010 PGA Tour School. After two events Professional Bryn Parry leads the charge with 1,650 points, closely followed by Paradis with 1550 points himself.

In the Amateur field, 51 golfers competed for some great Cleveland and Srixon prizes and Marketplace IGA gift certificates in each flight. The Overall Amateur winner Joey Lemieux of Guildford Golf Club grinded through his round with seven birdies and one eagle, ending his round with a score of 69 (-3). Lemieux was one shot better than Sandpiper’s own Yves Bisson, who carded five birdies himself. Lemieux won himself a Cleveland Launcher 3-Wood and $100 GC from Marketplace IGA while Bisson took home a Cleveland bag and $50 GC from Marketplace IGA for finishing runner-up. In the Flight A Amateur Division it was David Grabowski of Pitt Meadows Golf Club who claimed an outright victory with score of 77 (+5), which was five stroked better than his nearest competitor. Grabowski also took home a Cleveland bag and $50 GC from Marketplace IGA for his solid play. Finally, in the Flight B Division, New Westminster’s Pete Fung took home low honours and cashed in a Never Compromise putter and $100 GC from Marketplace IGA.

VGT would like to thank Sandpiper Golf Resort for their continued hospitality over the past four years since VGT’s inception. The golf course is always in great shape and the idyllic setting for players of all abilities. Thanks to Director of Operations Ted Swaine and his Pro-shop staff for all their assistance over the years and to Sandpiper Owner Betty-Anne Faulkner for welcoming our events so openly.
