Alberni Golf: Courtenay crew rocks Alberni golfers

Golf oficionado Gerry Fagan lets it all hang out about Alberni golf in his column.

It was fairly quiet at Alberni Golf Course on Sunday, as we had a number on members playing in the inter-club at Courtenay.

Our boys didn’t fair too well at Sunnydale losing   61/2 to 81/2.

Locally, the closet to the pin winners were, Bill Morin on No. 2,  Gord Cutting pocketed $25 for the Charity Closest to the pin on No. 4. Gary Korven on No. 13 and Brett Parhar on No. 17. For his second shot on No. 11 it was Mark Anderson.

The hidden hole money of $463 is still unclaimed as there wasn’t an outright winner. Starting next week there will be two hidden holes.

Congratulations go out to Gary Korven for his hole- in- one on No. 17 a couple of weeks ago

Next Sunday is the Toronto Dominion Bank Irish Four Ball event.

There will be four man teams, make up your own foursome and register in the pro. shop. The format is as follows: Hole one to five, you record the best  net and gross score; Holes six to 10 record the best two net and  gross scores; Holes 11-15 record the best three net and gross scores; Holes 16-18, record all four scores.

There will be a 8 a.m. shotgun start. The usual $10 fee applies.

Here are the results of the final Stableford that was played on Monday.

Cliff O’Laney led the way compiling 42 points, followed by Ted Stewart, Gail Rhodes, Gene Kimoto, and  Phil Anker all with 38 points.

Next was John Jones and Ron Clark with 37 points, then came Livio Tedesco, Jim Peterson, and Ron Barker with 36 points.

Closest to the pin winners were, Cliff O’Laney on No. 2, Gail Rhodes on No. 4, Jim Lawler on No. 13 and Jim Cassin on No. 17.

There were several draws, and winning $25 each were Tom Thomson, Peter Ryding Don Nicklin, Barry Bowman, Don Ferster, Gord Cutting, Chass Lazorko, Bill Barrett, Sandy Duguid, Theresa Cutting, Jim Cassin Doug Richmond, Anne Brookes, John Robbins, Pat Nicklin, Linda Christian, Gerry Toms, Ned Stewart and Dennis Hillman.
