Alberni’s three-club tourney was a fun one

Next Sunday, Sept. 18, will be our final sponsored event of the season. This will be a four-man computer picked altered course scramble.

It was a great day on the golf course on Sunday;, the sun was shining as 31 men teed it up for the three-club plus putter tournament held at Alberni Golf Course. Many thanks to Dave Koszegi, realtor, for sponsoring this event.

The field was split into two categories: low handicap division and high handicap division. In the low division it was Mike Savard leading the way with gross 76, followed by Jacques Giovetti, Glen Trask and Preben Rasmussen all shooting 77.

On the net side, Darrell Van Os carded a 64, with Al Wright shooting 66 and Bill Barrett and Chris Owen both coming in with 70.

In the high handicap division the gross prizes went to Bill Bjornson, Dave Mann, Darren Van Dyk and Cliff O’Laney. The net prizes were won by Don Grill, Mel Trelvic, Vic Carlton and Net Stewart.

The closest to the pins were divided into two categories as well. The low winners were Steve White on No. 2, Darrell Van Os on No. 4, Steve White on No. 13 and Brian Tall on No. 17. The high winners were Don Grill on No. 2, Bill Bjornson on No. 4, Don Grill on No. 13 and  Bill Bjornson on No 17.

Next Sunday, Sept. 18, will be our final sponsored event of the season. This will be a four-man computer picked altered course scramble.

The course will be dramatically changed from previous events. Some holes remain difficult, some holes are extremely hard, and there will be some easy holes as well.

All prizes will be team prizes including closest to the pin. Each player must have at least two drives with a maximum of seven drives.

This event is sponsored by Bowerman Contracting. Please register in the pro shop no later than 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17. Cost is $15 each.
