Alberni’s Randall holds the challenge pin

Alberni's Shannon Haggard busts out and takes challenge pin honours.

Marie Randall held the much coveted Challenge Pin and it was a face-off between her and Shannon Haggard with Shannon breaking free and taking the honours…Who will it be next week?  Pat Nicklin, hoo-hoo, that should be a match.

Carol Bouchard had a lights out game shooting an 86.  Teresa Cutting had an equally nice game carding a Low Net of 68.

The Ball Sweep today was all about KP’s…that means “Closest to the Pin” for all you non-golfers.  Illona McLeod took the KP No.17 while Doreen Grant scooped the KP on No. 4;  KP on the second shot on No. 6 went to Pat Nicklin while B-J Harper closed in on the second shot on No. 13 for that KP.

The Master’s Cup eliminations concluded today and the winners were;  A Division:  Patsy Gauthier with runner-up, Kathy White.

B Division: Teresa Cutting with runner-up, Sandra Simpson(these two had to play an extra six holes to determine the winner so it must have been a very tight game).

Anne Brookes had a hole in one on Monday, July 25th on hole No. 2.  She was awarded her “Hole-In-One” Pin, at this mornings golf.
