Alberni Golf: open day coming up

The 'people's pro' Gerry Fagan has the lowdown on Alberni Golf.

Once again we got away with it, the rain managed to hold off for most of the 18 holes.

Thanks to superintendent Steve White and the rest of the grounds crew for keeping the course in good spring conditions.

Fifty six men teed it up on Sunday for the  MacDermotts Insurance Agency Waltz event. Coming first was the awesome team of Al Wright, Glen Trask Art Fowler and Mel Trelvik.

In second spot was the group of Cal Davies, Cliff O’laney Bill Bjornson and Jack Sparks. Followed by the team of Sam Parhar, Brett Parhar, Ken Fong and Fred Fredrickson.

Then came Steve Acland, Craig Acland, Keith Gauther and Clarke Crowe. Then it was Ted Stewart, Ned Stewart, Vic Carlton and Wolf Suhr.

In the sixth position it was Preban Rasmussen, Colin Hamilton, Wayne Johnston and Brian Tall. Finally the seventh spot goes to the team of Tyler Ruel, Mike Pichor, Chris Owen and Russ Israelson.

The Closest To The Pin winners were Al Wright on No. 2, The charity closest to the pin winner on No. 4  was Priban Rasmussen who took home $30. on No. 13 it was Russ  Israelson and  on No. 17 was Pat  McKay. The Westwind  pup long drive on No. 1 was won by Brett Parhar.

The Low Gross for the day was Mike Pichor who shot a 72, great game Mike. On the net side was Glen Trask who won by retrogression, shooting a 66 in the low handicap division and Bil Bjornson in the high handicap division with a 64.

The only skin available for the high handicappers was No. 14 won by Wolf Suhr, which was worth $115, while Mike Pichor won the money pot with the only birdie on No. 2.

Next Sunday is an open day with the usual Closest To The Pin and money pot up for grabs.

Please book your own tee times starting at 7:30.
