Ultimate Golf Shoot-Out at Vancouver's Canada Place

Sep 1, 2005

By Catherine Barr


Pursuit Productions' Ultimate Shoot-Out took place last Thursday at Canada Place. The contest saw 200 amateur golfers swing it out for a brand new luxury vehicle courtesy MCL Motorcars. There's only one big catch - you had to hit the floating green (built by Washington Seaspan) that was anchored some 175 yards off the pier. Cheering fans waited to see who would be the last man standing.

Also last Thursday, Harry Kambolis and company, of C and Raincity fame, opened the doors to their newest venture. Nu Restaurant invited VIPs to sip and sample from what promises to be the latest happening, high-brow hangout.
