Alberni Golf: Stableford starts on Monday

The weather in Alberni is great for golfing, which is a nice coincidence considering the vaunted Stableford event is around the corner.

Finally some good golfing weather.

The course is getting there, although there are a few soggy spots that the mowers can’t get to.

This past Sunday was an open day with the optional moderate stableford taking place. Thirty three men chose to go in the event, with Trevor Cripps topping the field, in second place was Glen Trask, third  was Darren Van Dyk,  fourth place went  to Keith Gauthier, while Jim Peterson took the final  spot.

The  closest to the pin were won by John Panagrot on No. 2, Glen Trask took home $29 for  his Charity  closest  to the pin on No. 4, Dennis Debolt on No. 13 and Wayne Johnston on No. 17. There was  no  winner on the hidden  hole this week, which means there is a $300 carry over  next week.

The  Zone 6 Challenge was held in Courtenay on Saturday. With the boys from Alberni placing second,

Congratulation go out to the team on Fred Fredrickson, Al Wright. Preban Rasmussen, Dennis Debolt and Don MacGowan.

This coming Sunday, May 13, is the Alberni Auto Group two man best ball.
