Alberni golfers revelling in warm weather

The "People's Pro" Gerry Fagan gives you the scoop on the happenings at Alberni Golf Club.

Finally we got some warm weather for the Two Man Iron Man on Sunday.

By the time the round was over around 12:30 most players were totally exhausted from the heat.

We played the combo tees, 9 blue and 9 white tees. This made for an interesting round considering the tough pin placements. It didn’t seem to  bother Preban Rasmussen and Colin Hamilton, who emerged the low gross winners. They were followed by the twosome of Cory Neilson and Jim Proteau. Rounding out the gross winners were the Acland boys, Steve and Craig. On the net side of things, first low net went to the team of Sam  Parhar and Sean Banman, followed by Steve Pointon and Darren Van Dyk, Glen Trask and Al Wright. Jacques Giovetti and his partner. Fifth low net was won by Vic Carlton and Mel Trelvik, next was the team of Pat Mckay and Gary Korven, the final net prize went to Clark Crowe and Keith Gauther.

Closest to the pin winners were Darren Van Dyk on Number 2, Cory Nielsen collected $44 for his Charity closest to the pin on Number 4, Colin Hamilton on number 13 and Steve Pointon on number 17. The West Wind Pub long drive on number 1 was won by Kyle Luchinski.

There were two money  pot  winners, Cory Nielsen collected $110 for the only birdie on number 2 and Glen Trask pocketed $95 for his birdie on number 17.

Next week is an open day with the usual Closest to the pin, money pot and Skins up for grabs. Be sure to book your tee times in your own group    starting at 7AM. The following weekend is the Alberni Auto Works Club Championship. This year the Championship will be medal play over the two  days, Saturday July 26th and Sunday July 27. More about that next week.
