All quiet on the western front in Alberni ladies golf

Game, flame and fame in Alberni ladies golf this week.

After a week of feverish activity for the ladies of the golf course, we settled down for a game of “criss cross”- “apple sauce”, which is not too complicated if you talk fast.

The ladies had to pick the lower of two corresponding hole scores for a nine-hole total.  On their score card they had to circle the score they were choosing to use and had to pick either: one or 10; two or 11; three or 12; four or 13; etc..then total the circled scores for a nine-hole total.

A nice quiet game until Carol Bouchard came blasting in with a low gross of 34.  Marie Randall exploded with her low net score of 27.  Janice Cross took the low gross in her regular game with an 85. This  tied with Carol Bouchard’s regular low gross score, so that left Carol wide open to take the low net honours carding a 68 and good enough to also take the Monthly Medal.

The highly coveted challenge pin which was held by BJ Harper was sought after by Sandra Simpson.  BJ managed to hang onto it and will be competing with Pat Nicklin for it next week.

Next week we will be qualifying for the Zone six ­— four ball, which will be held at Pheasant Glen on Aug. 12.

A team of two need to play together to qualify as a team.  Pick your partner and have a good game is all that’s necessary to gain a spot.

Nine-Hole Division

A Division:  low gross was carded by Sharon Hillman.  Katy Lekich took low net honours, which also put her in the running for a share of the Putting Pot with Lois Robinson and Nancy Clayton.

B Division:  Low Putts here was also a three way tie with Jean Illman, Lorraine Wilson and June Parks sharing the spoils.

Nancy Blair was the low gross player with Lorraine Wilson also taking the low net position.

KP’s (Closest to the Pin) were recorded by June Parks and Nancy Blair.
