Welcome to official home page of the YL Country - Caribou Cresting Tournament of Champions.
With the 2012 Tournament of Champions complete, the attention now turns to next year's event in Grimshaw at the Creek Golf Course. The 2013 event will mark the 38th annual YL Country Caribou Cresting Tournament of Champions and the first time that it has ever been held at the Creek.
Organizers hope that there will be a full field competing in Grimshaw in 2013 and the event will go ahead regardless of the weather. Peace River Broadcasting General Manager Chris Black says the new course will provide a new set of challenges for competitors.
"We don't know what kind of flow there will be to the game or anything like that until we really get out there and start moving the tournament around, we do know that it is a tight course, we do know there are a lot of trees out there, so sometimes that can slow down play, but I think this will offer a nice new challenge to everyone competing in the tournament". He said.
The goal is to once again put on a first class tournament, something that has become the norm for Peace River Broadcasting.
Black adds that after 37 years of running the Tournament of Champions, his staff have created an effective gameplan that enables the event to run smoothly each year.
"You know what, we found a really strong system that seems to works, we have been doing this for 37 years and we are really happy with how things went in High Level and I don't think we are going to change it alot, we really don't change it alot we just tweak it to suit the course, because each course has different nuances". He said.
The 2012 competition at the Fox Haven Golf Course in High Level featured a fairly full field, as over 100 Men and Women hit the links to try and win both the Mens' and Ladies' titles at the Tournament.
