Christina Lake Golf Club is hosting the B.C. Amateur and Mid-Amateur Golf tournament this week with some local flavour rounding out the fields.

Trail’s Kate Weir teed off in the Amateur on Tuesday carding an opening round of 84, and followed that up with an improved round of 81 on Wednesday. Her combined score of 165 put her in a tie for 40th, just enough to make the cut for the 72 hole gross-stroke play tournament.

Wanda Flack of Fruitvale also hit the fairways in the Mid-Amateur, shooting a respectable 88 in the first round and 87 Wednesday for a share of 15th place with Creston’s Cherie Baker in the 54-hole competition

The BC Mid-Amateur Women’s Championship, for golfers age 25 and over, is a gross-stroke play competition with no cut and includes the Master-40 Division for players aged 40 and older as of the first day of the competition.

After two days, 2010 amateur champion Christine Wong of Richmond leads the bid for the Flumerfelt Cup  after shooting a 69 Wednesday, and 5-under for the tournament.

Kyla Inaba of Kelowna leads the Mid-Amateur with a two-day score of 4-under par.
