Belmont Golf Course has thrice hosted the Canadian Tour's Spring Qualifying School. There's a reason the event has returned to this Les Furber, GDS designed golf course - it's one of the best in the Lower Mainland. The full length championship course, which opened in 1992, features six par threes and four sets of tees, making it perfect for golfers of all skill and experience levels.
In 2007 seven Canadians were among the 16 players to earn cards Friday as the Canadian Tourâ€™s Spring Qualifying School wrapped up in B.C.
Californian Thomas Petersson posted a final-day even par 70 at Belmont Golf Club to take medalist honors. With a four-round total of 13-under 267, Petersson finished four shots clear of runner-up Brian Benedictson (Comox, BC), Pan Singhaseni (Beverley Hills, Calif.) and former Canadian amateur star Andrew Parr (London, Ont.).
Seven players earned exempt status for the remainder of the Canadian Tour season, including Canadians Benedictson, Parr and Dion Sirianni of Kamloops, BC. Nine others earned non-exempt, or conditional, status, among them British Columbians Greg McAuley, Tyler Pitt, Greg Machtaler and Stephen Thomas.
