Alberni’s Parhar is a champ

Fifty-eight players took part in the Van Isle Ford two man Iron Man golf event in Alberni on Sunday.

Fifty-eight players were on hand to take part in the Van Isle Ford two man Iron Man, under sunny skies on Sunday.

Although we played from the white tees, the pin placements were extremely tough.

The gross winner was the team of James Haggard and Greg Palmer. Second low gross went to the father and son team of Sam and Brett Parhar. Third low gross was won by Craig Acland and Colin Hamilton with the final gross prize going to Tyler Ruel and Mike Pechor.

Rounding out the scoring was the dynamic duo of Mel Trelvik and Gerry Fagan.

The longest drive on No. 11 goes to Brett Parhar, who received a Westwind Pub gift certificate. Ned Stewart was the lucky winner of the draw for $50.

In the ball sweep, Jacques Giovetti won three balls for his gross 78 and Jim Proteau won two balls for shooting 80. Bob Matlock shot a net 71 taking home three balls, while Gary Korven laid claim to two balls for his 72.
