Fourth Annual Golf Tournament for C.P. Edwards Trophy

H.V. Anderson. Director of Marine Services presents

the C.P. Edwards Trophy to Jack Cole, Air Regulations

The Department of Transport's Fourth Annual Golf Tournament is now but a matter for the rec­ords, but long will it be remembered by the fifty odd golfers within the department who partici­pated, as one of the best golf tournaments ever held.


Not only were they impressed by the beautiful greens of the Lachute Golf and Country Club where the competition for the Lt.Commander C.P. Edward's Trophy took place, but the delicious dinner so excellently served in the evening left everyone looking anxiously forward to next year's tour­nament.


The competition was indeed very keen, with the winner not being decided upon till all score cards had been turned in. The proud holder of the coveted trophy for this year is Jack Cole of the Air Regulations Section of Air Services. Jack grossed an 81 to just edge out Alex Milne.of Steamship Inspections by a stroke. Jack birdied the first and tenth holes and pared nine others to take all the honors. Alex birdied the first and pared eight others to come a very close second. L. Virr of the National Harbours Board was close on the heels of Mr. Milne with a gross 83.


The individual prizes for the low net in each foursome were won by R. M. Smith, C. A. O'Brien. C. F. Ferland, H. Mills, E. Stimpson, W. J. Manning, J. Levin, C. Harris, D. Burgess, and G. Parsons.


The trophy was presented to Jack Cole by Mr. H.V. Anderson on behalf of Commander Edwards who was unable to attend. The low net prizes were presented to the winners by Mr. C. A. O'Brien. An interlude of story telling followed the dinner, and like all good things the day passed much too quickly. The Department's Fourth Annual Golf Tournament came to an end when the wearied but happy golfers made their long journey home.
