Ackland tops Sunday in alberni

In men’s club action at Alberni Golf Club this past Sunday, Steve Acland had the best of the day, carding a gross 75 to win three balls.

He was followed by Dennis Debolt’s 79, taking home two balls, while Colin Hamilton and Jim Proteau took home one ball each.

On the net side, Livio Tedesco shot 65 and won three balls for his effort, Jerry White shot 67 to win two balls and Bob Matlock shot 69, winning one ball.

Closest to the pin awards were won by Jim Lawler on No. 2, Pat McKay pocketed $18 for the charity closest to the pin on No. 4, George Defrane on No. 13, Steve Acland on No. 17 and for his second shot on No. 6 it was Frank Hastings.

In the gross skin competition, the winners were Jim Lawler, Preban Rasmussen, Pat Mckay, Colin Hamilton, Steve Acland and Tyler Ibsen each winning $10. The net winners of $19 each were, Livio Tedesco, Phil Anker, Dave Mann, Steve Acland and Gerry Blender.

Up next for the men’s club is the MacDermotts Insurance Agency Waltz, which takes place Sunday, May 1. This is a four-man team event.

The format is as follows: on hole No. 1 you count the best net, on hole No. 2 you count the best two nets, hole No. 3 you count the best three nets. Then you start over again until all 18 holes have been played.

Example, if you start on No. 11 you would count the two best nets and carry on from there.

The shotgun start takes place at precisely 8 a.m.; try to be there at least 15 minutes early so you can get to your assigned tees on time.

Please register in the pro shop in your own foursome, or as a single and you will be placed on a team. Or you can phone at 723-5422.

Just a reminder that guests are always welcome at the Alberni Golf Club.
