2022 Club Championships

Once again, a huge thank you to each of the participants who challenged themselves to play in the annual Club Championships at Innerkip Highlands on August 27th & 28th. A full field of 100 players took to the golf course to seek the glory of lifting one of the five Club Championship trophies.
A huge congratulations to the winners of each of the five flights after 36 holes of play!
Men's Club Champion: Atif Shamsher (75 - 73: +4) - 2020 & 2022 Club Champion!
As the gallery watched anxiously from the patio, Atif carefully read his putt for birdie on the 36th hole on Sunday. Charlie Burke (in the clubhouse), Victor Robichaud (holed for par) and Atif were all tied at +5 with the possibility of a three-way, sudden-death playoff looming. With a confident stroke and a Tiger-worthy fist pump, Atif rolled his putt home and secured the 2022 Men's Club Championship! The Innerkip trophy is, once again, held by an Innerkip resident!
Women's Club Champion: Lisa Narayansingh (72 - 69: -3 Net)
Showcasing the calm demeanour often found on the fairways of the LPGA tour, Lisa played back-to-back rounds at or below her handicap to solidify her place as the 2022 Women's Club Champion. Punctuating her weekend with three birdies including one on the Island Green on #5 on Saturday, Lisa secured her victory with tenacity and grit!
"B" Flight Champion: Dan Capling (80 - 76: +12)
With birdies on holes 2, 7 and 16, Dan's final round 76 secured his place as the "B" flight champion bringing a second Innerkip trophy to a hometown hero. He was quoted on the patio saying "The beer sipped from the silver bowl of this trophy was the best-tasting beer I've ever had!"
"C" Flight Champion: Peter Chubb (77 - 86: +19 - 3rd playoff hole)
For the third year in a row, the championships could not be decided without a playoff! With a 5-shot improvement over his Saturday round, Brett Ferguson (84 - 79: +19) forced a playoff from the second to last group with Peter Chubb. After a dramatic battle that included a chip-in for Brett on the first playoff hole (#1) to stay alive and a pair of pressure putts on the second playoff hole (#18) to keep the competition going for a third hole, Peter solidified his victory with a bogey on the third playoff hole (#1).
"D" Flight Champion: Austin Hayward (74 - 84: +14)
Austin Hayward shot a personal best round 74 during the first round to give himself a 4-shot lead on the way into the second round on Sunday. Austin maintained his composure and managed to fend off challengers to secure his first Club Championship win!
