Thanks for putting on the Tournament. I lived in Lachine and Pointe Claire for 30 years,
before moving to Los Angeles, where we lived 8 years.  We have been living in New Jersey
for the past 10 years.  I try to visit with friends and family as often as possible and the golf
outing was a way to have some fun.  I played with Steve Bishyk from Lachine and George
Zerebecki who lives in Pointe Claire.
We saw the ball roll onto the green and then it disappeared.  It looked like it rolled off the
green.  We looked under the pine tree behind the green and could not find the ball.  Finally,
someone suggested we look in the hole and there it was.  After 35 years of golf, a hole in one.

The 10th hole at the Santa Maria Golf & Country Club, Steve Felniak
On Wednesday everyone this time travelled to the correct course, Santa Maria Golf & Country Club, another testing layout, hilly, tree lined and plenty of trouble, also plenty of wind and some sun, but none the less another "gem of a course". On this occasion a slight improvement as 9 golfers were able to play to their handicap or better. The highlight of the day was a "Hole-In-One" at the 10th hole by Steve Felniak from Geelong.
Team scores at the end of the day -
Canada 353 and still leading with a total of 745,
Australia 363 with a total of 727,
followed by America 342 and a total of 682,
and Europe 360 with a total of 674.

Dr. Gerald Konanec (Montreal, Canada)
A first hole in one was recorded at the 22nd Annual Quebec Ukrainian
Amateur Golf Tournament on Saturday June 10th., 1989 at the Bluff Point
Golf & Country Club in Plattsburg, N.Y.

It was a beautifull sunny day when Dr. Gerald Konanec set up to tee off
at the par 3, 127 yard, 9th hole with his trusty 7 iron. With other
members of the group, Nick Sagan, John Cater & George Sowinski
approached the 9th green one ball was missing. After searching all
around the green someone decided to look in the hole and low and behold,
there it was. Party time thereafter.
