In 2005, DM welcomed a large group of enthusiastic 'older youngsters', as the RCGA brought its University & College Championships to this Cowichan Valley track.
The championship is open to universities, colleges and other post-secondary institutions (professional and technical schools) in Canada. The team championship has five-player teams competing over 72 holes with the top four individual scores counting towards the team total. After 54 holes, the field will be cut to the low 10 male and low four female teams. Any team within 15 shots of the lead will also make the cut.
The field is comprised of 20 male teams and a record 11 female teams and a total of 153 College and University golfers from across Canada competed.
Again, local teams were victorious as UVIC took the Men's title and UBC captured the Women's crown.
During the event, UVIC's Blake Rowe-Sleeman set the current Men's competitive course record with a round of 65.
