The annual Asessippi National Disc Golf Tournament was held Saturday.
“We could not asked for better weather for our annual tournament with 18 players participating in three Divisions,” said Rick Goraluk, evet organizer and co-owner of Asessippi Beach and Campground near Inglis, MB., where the course is located.
“In singles play round we had 11 In the Open Division, three in the Women's and four in the Masters.”
First place in the Open Division went to Josh Istace of Moosomin, SK., with a minus-3 score of 54.
Second went to Yorkton’s Nick LeClerc with a par score of 57, and third went to Sabastian Leimhofer on his home course, with a score of 58, with fourth going to Chris Istace of Moosomin with a score of 59.

After the singles round there was a break for lunch and then 15 people ventured up to the top of the hill for a Closest to the Basket competition. Each participant paid $10 and had three shots to be closest to the basket shooting downhill at a basket approximately 250-feet away. Nick LeClerc won the pot with a shot that actually hit the top of the basket and landed within six-feet .
There was also a longest drive award which was also won by Nick LeClerc with a throw of just over 400-feet.

“We then proceeded to a doubles round where Chris and Josh Istace, (a father and son duo), took home the first place doubles challenge with a -7 score of 50,” said Goraluk.
