With perfect weather and a field of 200 golfers, the day promised exciting competition on the picturesque course. Designed by C.K. Cotton and featuring a remodeled layout by Ross McMurray, St Pierre has a rich history of hosting prestigious tournaments, including the Solheim Cup and European events. The signature 18th hole, with its challenging shot across the lake, added to the allure of the course and tested the golfers' skills.

A Beautiful and Challenging Course: St Pierre Golf Club, boasting a stunning landscape and an 11-acre lake surrounded by century-old trees, offered a true test of skill. The course design by C.K.

The helping wind on this particular day added to the excitement and aided the golfers in conquering the demanding hole.
