The NB Men’s and Senior Men’s Four Ball events will continue with its historical two-day, 36 hole, format with 22 and 20 teams respectively.

The men’s field will see reigning champions Neil Roberts and Peter McCarthy of Westfield, challenged by the four time winners of the Ralph Costello Shield (2007, 2008, 2011, 2014) Darren Roach and Jason Roach of The Riverside Country Club.  Also looking to push for top spot will be 2016 NB Men’s Four Ball champion, Tim McRae, of the Hampton Golf Club and his new partner, Kevin MacAllister of the Miramichi Golf & Country Club. Two-time NB Junior champion (2008 & 2009) and two-time NB Amateur runner-up (2011 & 2012), Stephane Boudreau of the Moncton Golf & Country Club, has teamed up with club mate Colin Manning as the pair look to improve on Boudreau’s second-place finish in 2017’s event.

The Senior Men’s division includes 2017 champions Wilfred Pilgrim and Darryl Pupek of the Kingswood Golf. As with the amateur men’s division, the Senior Men’s field is very strong as 2017 co-runners up Steve Wilson and Dave Stewart of Sussex Golf & Curling Club return to the field, along with Bob Gray of Maplewood Golf & Country Club, who has teamed up with Bernie Leger of Royal Oaks Golf Club.

The deep and diverse fields in both the Men’s and Senior Men’s divisions should make for an exciting weekend filled with great competitive golf.
