Alberni’s Haggard wins Kullman Cup

Two ladies tournaments were held at the Alberni Valley Golf Club.

Shannon Haggard

In Tuesday’s Field Day for ladies’ golf at Alberni Golf Course, two tournaments within the tournament were being held.

Playing in the “A” Division, Sharon Haggard’s game merited the Kullman Cup.

Doreen Grant (Division B) finished in low numbers to take the Evergreen Trophy.

The Senior Games players came home with a truck full of medals as well. Barb Sheare brought home a gold. Patsy Gauthier and Shirley Goodman arrived with silvers and Carol Hastings had a bronze. Well done, seniors!

Low gross scorer for Tuesday was Janice Cross, shooting an 85. Low net winner was Sharon Haggard, carding a 70.

Challenge Pin holder, Katy Cyr, had her work cut out for her, defending the coveted pin. But it wasn’t good enough to deter Carol Bouchard. It was a fight to the last hole when Carol wrested the pin away from Katy. Carol will be looking for a challenger for next week.

We will still be starting with a shotgun at 8 a.m. and will also be playing for the monthly medal.

The ball sweep format was decided by a draw. Anna Marie Krikke won the low net side with a 74, tying with Illona McLeod. Pat Nicklin’s name was drawn for the low gross score.

This Friday, Sept. 2, the Solheim Cup will be played at Arrowsmith Golf Course. The standing for the cup are as follows: Alberni, 15 points; Sunnydale, 12 points; Cottonwood, 11.5 points; Glacier Greens, 9 points; Arrowsmith, 8.5 points. This tournament has been ongoing this season and is a single match play with Alberni ladies well ahead.

Business golf rescheduled

Because of a tournament the afternoon of Tuesday, Sept. 6, there will be no Business Ladies Golf until 5:30 p.m.

Business Ladies may tee off the back nine from 5:30–6:30 p.m.

Please make a note of this on your calendar so you won’t be disappointed!

9 Hole Division

A Division – Pennie Churchill had a blistering game and took the low gross position as well as having the lowest amount of putts and taking the kitty.

It usually happens that way, right?

Nancy Blair was in the running with her Low Net honours.

B Division – It’s happened again: Helen Weaver took both the low gross as well as low putts position…but in this case she tied her low putts score with Louise Berlinski.

Louise also carded the lowest net score.  Good games, gals!
