The “last ever” Ladies Black & White Scramble was held on July 13.
The weather was absolutely perfect and once again the Nk’Mip Canyon Desert Golf Course was in tremendous shape.
The course was alive with 132 ladies dressed in black and white attire.
The tournament committee was dressed as old fashioned golfers, complete with high neck blouses and long black skirts. The outfits ranged from fairy godmothers to cowgirls complete with tool belts and even four awesome Spice Girls.

The Tournament Committee (Debbie Brunelle, Anne Dalziel, Penny Rivera, Lynn Hoffman, and Irene Lussier) wish to extend its sincere thanks for the wonderful support of the Oliver and surrounding business communities, and the Elk’s Lodge #267 for their continued support for the past five years.
The real winners of this event are the children of Oliver who will benefit from a donation to the Oliver Parks and Recreation Society to support sporting events for children who may not otherwise be able to afford them. For example, the youth floor hockey program has benefited from the tournament.
Thank you to all the volunteers who have helped make this tournament the success it has been for five years. We couldn’t have done it without you.
