Alberni Golf: Scramble is a gamble

Alberni Golf's Knox Coupland has his finger on the pulse and hand around the putter of the scene at Alberni Golf.

On Sunday Van Isle Ford sponsored a four man scramble.

The winning team consisted of Jim Proteau, Mickey Keeley, Ron Barker and Paul Saulnier.  Second place went to Sam Parhar, Al Wright, Gene Kimoto and Wolf Suhr.  The third and final prize went to Fred Fredrickson, Trevor Konchuk, and Bob Price.

They took turns making shots for their fourth team member who was a no show.

Cory Nielson was the standout for individual shots on Sunday taking closest to the pin on No 13 and closest to the pin with his second shot on No. 11.  Tyler Ibsen was closest on No. 2, charity closest to the pin on No. 4 was Henry Chretien, and Steve White was closest on No. 17.

A couple of aces were rewarded on Sunday as Club Captain Fred Fredrickson presented $50 to Gene Kimoto for a hole-in-one on No. 13 a couple of weeks ago. And Cal Davies for his ace on No. 4 last Friday. Congratulations gentlemen.

This Sunday is an open day but there are a couple of mystery ingredients happening.

You can enter the blind partners event for $5.  That mystery works this way…you won’t know who your partner is until you finish your round.  The second mystery is the Hidden Hole which will be worth over $300 to whoever wins that hole.

Book your own tee times starting at 7 a.m. Don’t forget to enter the money pot and the charity closest to the pin.
