Alberni Golf: It was fun, sun and birds on the linx

The 'people's pro'Gerry Fagan files another installment of Alberni Golf.

The sun was shining, the birds were singing, and the golfers were golfing.

It was a great day on the links this past Sunday. There were forty six men playing in the Tim Horton’s Partner with a Pro competition.

Closest to the pin winners were Al Wright on No. 2 the Charity closest to the pin on No. 4 was won by Preban Rasmussen, No. 13 it was Russ Israelson and Fred Fredrickson on No. 17. The Westwind Pub long drive on No. 5 was won by Pat McKay.

The low gross for the day was 74 shot by Sam Parhar,  the low net in the low Handi Cap division was won by Tyler Ruel who carded  a 70. The  high Handi Cap division winner, also with a 70, was Gary Korven.  There was only one skin won in the low H/C division and that belongs to Glen Trask who took home $85.  In the high H/C division winning $27.50 each for their skins were Brian McKay, Bill Bjornson, Bob Matlock and Chris Owen.

Next week is the Par Points competition, with tee times start at 8 a.m.
