Holkestad, Kerbrat win Vic Marion Seniors’ Jubilee

The men’s Seniors’ Jubilee title may not be returning to Prince Rupert, but the women’s trophy will be staying within city borders.

The men’s Seniors’ Jubilee title may not be returning to Prince Rupert, but the women’s trophy will be staying within city borders.

Rose Holkestad emerged as the tournament victor in the ladies’ division of the Vic Marion Seniors’ Open at the Prince Rupert Golf Club earlier in August – her third straight Vic Marion title.

The Prince Rupert golfer, who just this year has won the His and Hers Tournament with Brian Holkestad as well as the Ladies Jubilee, shot an overall low gross 36-hole total of 179 to win the championship.

Brian, who won the men’s Vic Marion title two years ago, didn’t take part in the men’s division, but Gene Kerbrat from Kitimat won the men’s title with an overall low gross of 160.

“It’s not my best score I’ve ever shot there. I had a couple lower scores in the jubilees, but it went well. There was some good competition,” said Kerbrat.

“I was more consistent on the back nine [holes] … I seem to have better luck on the back. I’ve been in a few tournaments [at the Prince Rupert course] the last three years, so I’m pretty familiar with the course.”

Kerbrat shot a 36-hole low gross total of 160 to win the title, and along with it, a nice picture with a frame.

“I kind of like my prize. It’s a picture on top of the 18th hole there – the view from the 18th hole. I was playing the first round on Saturday and I said, ‘Boy, this is a really nice view’ – you know, when you’re sitting up there and looking down — and I ended up winning a picture of that exact view,” said Kerbrat.

“It was my first win – I’m 57 years old and I finally won a tournament!”

The overall low net winner for the men was Don Movold, who shot a net total of 143 and the ladies’ overall low net winner was Jocelyn Galloway, who carded a net total of 147.

“They did a pretty good job of getting the course playable without a greenskeeper. They haven’t had a greenskeeper all year,” said Kerbrat, who regularly plays in the Terrace and Kitimat tourneys as well as Rupert events.

“Every time I’ve played there it hasn’t rained ever … I enjoy playing in Rupert – they’re a good bunch of people and I’m going to be coming for the next few years,” he said.
