Ultimate golf shoot-Out for a jaguar on washington marine barge

Aug 25, 2005

By Catherine Barr


The 2005 Ultimate Shoot-Out is aptly named because today, one lucky amateur golfer will be taking home a brand new Jaguar or Ranger Rover automobile. Conceived by the sports marketing partners at Pursuit Productions, the event required the construction of a 6,700 sq. ft. floating green by North Van's Washington Marine group. Last week's preview in North Van gave everyone a chance to see what's in store today at Canada Place as contest finalists tee it up in front of spectators for the shot of a lifetime.

The floating green consists of sand traps and palm trees built atop a floating barge.
Golf green construction was carried out by English Lawn's own Simon Davies (left) and Nick "the sod-father" Broad who said they made friends with several seals during assembly.
MCL Motor Cars' Mark Edmonds and Christina Smalley, along with their Vancouver, Richmond and North Shore locations, will award the winning automobile.
Dressed in a kilt and ready to swing was Doolin's GM Evan King who didn't mind lending his knee to organizer Christine Van after taking his practice shot.
