It’s the toughest test in tournament golf for women of the region, and it keeps them coming back every year.

The Nanaimo Women’s Mid-Island Amateur golf tournament tees off this Saturday and Sunday (June 2-3) at the Nanaimo Golf Club.

Defending champion Christina Proteau of Port Alberni is the favourite, but she’ll be challenged by a field that includes four other former tournament winners: Alison Murdoch and Penny Baziuk of Victoria and Georgina Hermans and Jennifer Simons of Nanaimo.

Other Nanaimoites in contention are Kim Evans and 13-year-old Shirin Anjarwalla.

Prizes will be awarded to both low-gross and low-net winners and the top hole-in-one prize this year is a 2012 Buick Verano from Laird Wheaton GM.
