Alberni Golf: Men’s club go blind

Members used golf clubs instead of white canes for the Blind Partners event in Alberni.

Sunday the Men’s Club held the Blind Partners event.

Winners on the gross side were Jim Proteau and Glen Trask.  Second low gross went to Craig Acland and Dave Mann.

The net side was topped by Bill Barrett and Jim Petersen followed by Cal Davies and John Jones while Jack Sparks and Don MacGowan rang up third place.

The mystery hole Sunday was No. 12 with both Gerry White and Don MacGowan recording two.  Next week the Mystery hole will be a carry over of $210.

Closest to the pin winners were Bill Kriwokon on No. 2. But Bill was still in the groove nailing closest to the pin on the charity hole  No. 4 for a reward of $31. Gerry White put his second shot closest to the pin on No. 6, Jim Petersen on No. 13 and Bob Matlock took the prize on No.17.

Up next for the Men’s Club is the MacDermotts Insurance Agency Waltz, which is  happening Sunday April 29.

This is a four man team event.  The format is, on hole No.1 you count the best net, on hole No. 2 count the best two nets and on hole No. 3 you count the best three  nets.  Then you start over again counting the best low net on #4.until all 18 holes have been played.

With a shotgun start you adjust the scoring format so that every one contends equally on all holes.

For example if you start on No. 11 you count the best two nets and carry on from there.
