Golf fever strikes Arviat
Arviat residents have taken up an unlikely Arctic sport – golfing. The local golfing association boasts over 50 members and driving golf balls has become the new favorite past time of young children.
Last weekend’s 2003 Arviat Qaituearjuq Golf Open brought competitors from as far away as Coral Harbour. Thirty-four participants competed for the top prize of $1,500, a set of men’s clubs and a trophy.
Simeon Dion of Coral Harbour won first place, Stephen Kuksuk came in second.
