The Home Hardware two-man classic in support of the Gary Brandon Sports Bursary is back at the Dauphin Lake Golf Club.

After hosting the event in September last season, this year's event will return back to its normal time as the event is from May 28-30. Trevor Fox and Regan Hedley won last year's event as they downed Steve Desroches and Jake Wiens to win the title.

This year, great prizes will once again be up for grabs and every team is guaranteed four rounds. The entry fee this year is $250 per team which includes multiple meals and a chance at prizes.

Each team plays a qualifying round on Friday and that's followed by the matches which begin on Saturday. The event is open to golfers of all skill levels as after Friday's qualifying match, teams are put into their proper flights.

"With the four rounds in three days, it's like any golfers dream," said Karlson. 

Saturday's first-round will be a 9:00 a.m. shotgun followed by another shotgun at 2:00 p.m. Sunday's final round is a 9:00 a.m. shotgun which is followed by the closing ceremonies for the event which include prize giveaways. Registration for the event is now open and it is capped off at 40 teams. However, if four more teams are interested after the initial 40 register their teams, the event will proceed with 44 teams.

Junior golfing:

Free lessons at the club begin this weekend. Spearheaded by Jordan Pernarowski, junior golfers in Dauphin will get an excellent chance to learn from some veteran golfers including Stan Homeniuk.

They start on Saturday and are open for anyone under the age of 18. You are asked to call the pro shop if you would like to book a spot. 638-9400 is the number to call. The lessons run on May 1, 8, 15, 22, and June 5. 

"The golf course is very active right now and we're pleased to be able to offer these free junior lessons," ended Karlson.
