MAA 2019 Golf Tournament

September 12, 2019

MAA Golf Tournament

A total of 46 members and staff participated in the 2019 MAA tournament, which was held at St. Boniface Golf Club in September, 2019.

Participants were permitted to enter their own teams for the Texas Scramble format. In the end it was the foursome from Northern Sky Architecture Inc., comprised of Kent Woloschuk, Jamie Streilein, Jamie Robertson and David Wagner, who took home the trophy with a final score of 6 under par. They managed to beat out the foursome of Jon Trenholm, Corey Greenham, Janelle Fillion and Ryan Van Belleghem from LM Architectural Group, also at 6 under par, based on a count back.

Other winners, at an individual performance level, included Melissa Sarrasin for the Women's Straightest Drive, Peter Hargraves for Men's Straightest Drive, Kristin Szuminskyfor the Women's Closest to the Pin and David "Missed it by That Much" Wagner for Men's Closest to the Pin. (We understand that, despite the downside of their foursome having to start the round on that hole, Wagner came within centimeters of having his name added to the top spot on the MAA's trophy - which already officially records the two 'hole in one' achievements that have been realized at the MAA's event over the past number of years.)
