A fitting end

The ladies golf season at the Alberni Golf Course finishes for the year.

The final day of golf for the ladies’ club at Alberni Golf Course dawned bright and warm, a fitting end to the season.

For the high handicap group, Mary Ann Maddison won the low gross, Pat Dahlquist won low net and there was a three-way tie for the lowest putts between Dahlquist, Maddison and Marj Dufour.

Pars were had by Romaniuk and Marie Swain. Maddison and Romaniuk had chip-ins.

In 18-hole ladies’ play, low gross was won by Janice Cross and Carol Hastings took the low net.  Leona Fowler hung onto the Challenge Pin despite a challenge from Marie Randall.

For the KP challenge, Cross won on No. 5 and Hastings won on No. 14.  The special prize was won be Kathy White.

The nine-hole and 18-hole ladies’ closing luncheon will take place at the golf course next Tuesday, Oct. 7 at noon.

In the words of Byron Nelson: The only thing you should force in a golf swing is the club back into the bag.
