Driftwood open winter classic.

Max Clement’s driftwood winter classic was held on April 3 rd 2016,
This golf tournament has been held for 20 plus years, and is played on the ice in front of Max’s cabin
on Driftwood bay on the floodwaters (Marmion lake Reservoir),north of the Atikokan Hydro Generating Station site.

Some years the ice conditions were very poor and the tournament was not held.

This years classic started with a stop at the White Otter Inn where everyone had a full breakfast
to get them warmed up and mentally prepared to face the minus 12 degree temps and a 15 km wind
that was waiting for them on the Lake.

the snow was falling and there had been about 4 cm on the ice.
Driftwood bay, got its name for all the driftwood and stumps that are present in the bay, this area was flooded in 1926
as a storage area for the hydro dam at the moose lake hydro station

Max, with his three Grandsons, Adam Clement, Max and his twin brother Gregg Fulton, with Ray Laquerre and Richard Lampi rounded out the golfers who braved the weather to participate in this classic.

The game was played one day after Max’s 90th birthday.
