After a very successful Alberni Auto Works Club Championship, new member Ammar Anjarwalla emerged the winner.

Congratulations, Ammar. Runner up to the champion was Jim Rhodes.

Winning the net competition was Glen Trask followed by James Weening and Chris Owen.

Next week is an open Sunday. There will be gross prizes as well as net prizes, the usual closest to the pin and money pots will be up for grabs.

Please make up your own foursomes and make your tee time starting at 7 a.m.

Sunday, Aug. 9 there will not be a Men’s Club due to the Mixed Tournament being held that weekend.

The following week Aug. 16 will be the Van Isle Ford Scramble. This won’t be your ordinary scramble—it will have a bit of a twist to it. More about that later.

One final note, The Alberni Golf Club sent a team to the PGA Pro  Junior tournament at Olympic View recently. For those who don’t know,  Olympic View is near Victoria.

The team consisted of assistant pro Brian Rands, and juniors Jeramy Robson, Josiah Anderson and Eric Gill who placed sixth overall.
