Alberni’s Stableford is special

Stableford attracted a ladie's squad while Alberni's best battle it out abroad.

The objective of the Stableford is to accumulate the most points possible over the 18 holes played.

Each player will be using her net score for each hole to determine her points.  One point is awarded for a bogey; two points for a par; three points for a birdie; and four points for an eagle.  Additional points of two for a chip-in and one-for-oneputt may be added to the score.

Now, was it just me, or did a lot of others have trouble wrapping their brains around this no-brainer?  Nevertheless, there seemed to be confusion in the ranks, so much so that even our cart stopped working and we had to get towed in.

I looked up the word “Stableford” in the dictionary. It wasn’t in there but the word “stable” was. One of the explanations was “not easily moved or thrown off balance; not likely to break down, fall apart, or give way; firm; steady; fixed.”

Leona Fowler was all of these and had no trouble adding up her points to take the winning circle amassing 42 points.Marie Randall was right behind her with her total of 41.

Anna Marie Krikke came in with the Low Gross score of 91 while Marie Randall,s Low Net of 69 took those honours.

Marie’s 69 was good enough to win her the position of Challenge Pin holder and she will try to edge out Shannon Haggard for it next week.  It should be noted here that Marie Randall also won the shoot-out for the monthly medal.The Zone sixtwo-ball will have at least four teams entered, and there’s a chance for all six teams to play.  Please contact Teresa Cutting for the details of this tournament.

All of us at the Alberni Golf Club send our good wishes out to Jackie Little who will be playing in Alberta for the Seniors title next week, and to Christina Proteau who will be playing in the Canadian Amateur and Mid-Amateur Tournament.  All the very best and our wishes for a good game go out to both of you.

Nine Hole Division

“A” Division:  low gross was scored by Pennie Churchill while Julie Swaney took the Low net honours.  Julie Swaney must have had a great game as she shared the Low Putt kitty with Marie Swain.

“B” Division:  Marj Dufour had the lowest score today on the Gross side of the ledger with Audrey Pemberton taking the low net position.  Lorraine came on home to take the low putts.

Long drives were recorded by Marta Williamson in the “A” Division and by Mary Haggard in the “B” Division.
