The Evening Junior Optimist Open at Highland Pacific Golf Club on July 19 put the talents of some of the best young golfers in the province under the age of 18 on display.

“The calibre of golf for the event was outstanding this year,” said Reeves, who has been involved with the event for the past eight years of its 32-year history. “We owe a big thanks to all our Evening Optimist volunteers, Callaway Golf and all the kids for their ongoing support in making this year’s event such a success.”
