Alberni Ladies’ business golf league kicks off

Attention, lady golfers: grab your golf clubs, it’s golf season again.

Attention, lady golfers: grab your golf clubs, it’s golf season again.

The Alberni Golf Club Business Ladies’ Golf season started the first Tuesday of April. Every Tuesday, except when we have our scrambles, is regular golf, from the beginning of April to the end of September, teeing off from 3:30–6 p.m.

Just sign in at the pro shop (and pay your green fee if applicable) and head to the tee. If you are a single or twosome, just join up with the next available group, and tee off. We try to alternate which nine holes we are playing.

Remember to fill out and turn in your score cards, which will go towards the year-end prizes.

We have one scramble each month; the opening and closing ones in April and September are on Sundays, teeing off at 2 p.m. The rest, from May through August, are on the last Tuesday of each month, teeing off at 5:30 p.m.

The scrambles are geared for a lot of fun and often have a theme.  The price includes golf, followed by a delicious meal, and a prize for every player.

Every time you come out to golf with the Business Ladies, either regular golf or scrambles, your name goes in the draw for grand prizes at the September year-end scramble.

Another fun thing, each regular Tuesday of golf and for each scramble, there are closest to the pins (K.P.s) on the par 3’s. All the K.P. winners during the season, whether in regular golf or in the scrambles, get to go in a shoot-out at the Wind-up Scramble in September for prizes.

The opening scramble this year will be on Sunday, April 24, with a shotgun start at 2 pm. Come join us, and plan to have fun, because that’s what it is all about. We invite all lady golfers of all abilities to come out with us.

Also, if you bring a non-perishable donation for the Bread of Life, you can put your name in for a draw prize.

For the scramble, just sign up ahead in the pro shop. If you don’t have your own foursome, don’t worry, we’ll match you up with someone else.
