The Men’s Club would like to welcome our newest member, Andre Savard, to the Sunday morning golf. It’s good to see so many younger men out for the Sunday events.
In Men’s Club action this past Sunday, Chase Shiner had the game of the day, shooting an impressive gross 74. Great game, Chase. Next, with gross 76, was Andre Savard, followed by Jeremy Robson carding 77 and Mike Savard, also with 77. On the net side, it was Eric Maurice coming in with 65, then Sam Parhar carding net 66, then Bill Bjornson with 68, then Dalton Moore with 69. Rounding out the scoring was Doug Cheetham and Mel Krasnuik, each shooting net 70.
The closest to the pin winners were Andre Savard on No. 2, Jim Rhodes on No. 4, no one on No. 13 and Andre Savard on No. 17. The charity closest to the pin on No. 7 was Wayne Johnstone. Prizes can be picked up in the Pro Shop
One final note: there will not be a Men’s Club event for the next two weeks, due to the Club Championship being held next Sunday. The following Sunday will be the mixed couples tournament.
See you in three weeks when we will be having the Mac Five Challenge, presented by Van Isle Ford. More about that later.
