The Estevan Oilfield Technical Society's (OTS) annual Oilwomen's Golf Tournament on July 18 is expected to attract more than 100 golfers to the TS&M Woodlawn Golf Club.

The tournament employs a Texas scramble format, and it will have a shotgun start at 10:30 a.m. Registration will begin at around 9:30 a.m. Novelty, hole-in-one and door prizes will be handed out, and there will be a putting contest.

Supper will be served once the tournament is finished.

Committee member Tanya George said they had just under 100 golfers signed up, as of July 14, and they hope to have over 100, which would be a similar number to what they have attracted in previous years.

The deadline for registrations is July 16.

George said this event allows women who work in the oilfield, and whose primary source of income is from the patch, to get out, have some fun and meet new people.

It's also a great opportunity for networking.

"A lot of times, you talk to them on the phone and via e-mails, and things like that," said George. "This is a good way to meet people face-to-face, and get to know other people as well, from around the community."

In recent years, event organizers have allowed participants to choose a playing partner. Then organizers would put foursomes together based on playing ability and golf cart need.

But this year they'll allow participants to select their full teams, which allows them to choose playing partners that they know they'll have fun with. Golfers can still enter individually or as a pair.

Team prizes will be handed out randomly, rather than to the team that finishes with the best score.
