Darren Oftebro tournament brings family together

The family and friends of Darren Oftebro shot a round of golf at Lone Wolf Golf Club on May 26 in the inaugural Darren Oftebro Memorial Golf Tournament. In all, 48 golfers took part in the best-ball tournament, with the focus on having fun and not on who won.

“I hadn’t seen most of (the golfers) since the funeral service, and it was great to see them in this light. It was a comforting moment for all of us, his family and friends who loved him so much,” said Tanya, Oftebro’s wife.

Oftebro was an annual member of Lone Wolf, and loved golf, and the club was instrumental in making the tournament happen, along with Dawn Page, a friend of Tanya’s, who organized the tournament.

“We wanted to have a fun day where we could honour Darren and bring us all back together again,” said Tanya.

Tanya hopes this is the first of many annual events in honour of Oftebro. They may hold another tournament, or may have a camping event, something family friendly to include her and Oftebro’s two young children.

“We’re excited to see how it all comes about in the future,” she said.
