AGC men take a waltz on the greens

It was a great day on the course, and the Alberni Golf Course’s Men’s Club finally some warm sunny weather.

It was a great day on the course, and the Alberni Golf Course’s Men’s Club finally some warm sunny weather.

Fifty-five men teed it up for the MacDermott’s Insurance Waltz on Sunday. That was our biggest turnout so far this year. I expect the numbers will grow as the season progresses and the weather improves.

Once again there were some great scores recorded. In first place with a team total of 125 was the foursome of Steve Pointon, Dave Mann, Phil Anker and Bill Barret, in second spot was the group of Cal Davies, Bill Bjornson, Jack Sparks and Cliff O’Laney, with a score of 127.

Next with 128 were Frank Hastings, Bob Matlock, Gary Korven and Jim Rhodes, followed by Craig Acland, Steve Acland, Keith Gauthier and Clark Crowe also with 128 but lost in a count back. Next with 130 were Pat McKay, Glen Barton, Bill Johnston and Don Grill.

In sixth place with a team total of 130 also lost in a count back was the foursome of Vic Carlton, Mel Trelvik, Ned Stewart and Wolf Suhr. Rounding out the scoring with 131 was Jerry Swaney, Gerry Blender, Gerry Toms and Bill Kriwoken.

The closest to the pins were won by Brian Douillard on No. 2, Hans Galesloot on No. 4, No 13 was Dennis Frykas, and No. 17 was won by Corey Nielson.

Gary Korven was the winner of the gift bag courtesy of The Scotia Bank and Jerry Swaney won the gift certificate from The Westwind Pub.

Next Sunday is an open day with the best gross and best net up for grabs. Also the closest to the pin and money pots will be available. There were no winners in the money pots this week as all par 3’s were halved.

Please book your own tee times for next week in your own group or as a single starting at 7 a.m.
