Alberni Golf: Red, white and blue on greens

The 'Peoples' Pro' Gerry Fagan has the scoop on the happenings at Alberni Golf.

Now that the Men’s and Ladies’ West Coast Amateurs are over,we can get on with business at the Alberni Golf Course.

This coming Sunday, June 29 is the Port Boat House Red, White and Blue event for the men’s club. The format is very simple: six holes you hit from the red tees, six from the white tees and six from the blue tees.

There will be specially marked score cards, so there won’t be any mistakes by hitting from the wrong tees. Be sure you have one before heading to your tee on Sunday.

The shotgun start is at 8 a.m.;, try to be there by 7:45 a.m. to pay your $10 entry fee and get to your assigned tees on time.

This is an individual event; you can sign up in the pro shop. Please make up your own foursome or sign up as a single and assistant club pro Brian Rands will put you on a team.
