Better weather means better golfing in Alberni

The who,how and why from the links in Port Alberni's men's golf scene.

Weather wise, last Sunday was pretty good for men’s club golfers at the Alberni Golf Course. No rain, no snow, no wind, in fact one of the players was complaining to Porchy about getting a minor sunburn.

What a difference a week makes.

Sunday, April 15 was an open day with an optional skins game. Net skins were worth $28.75 each and gross skins $11 each.

Vito Caldarulo was the big winner, collecting $55 for five gross skins. Net skins were won by Darrell Van OS, Gord Cutting, Vito Caldarulo, and Bob Matlock.

Closest to the pin winners were Vito Caldarulo on No. 2 and No. 17, and Craig Acland on No. 13.

The best second shot on No. 6 was posted by Craig Acland. Bob Matlock pocketed $29 for the charity closest to the pin on No. 4.

There was no winner on the hidden hole so it will be carried over for next week.

Next Sunday is an open day with an optional $5 blind partner event. This will be a two-man format, but you won’t know who your partner is until you finish your round.

Book your own tee times with your group starting at 7:30 a.m.

Don’t forget to book your time by 9 a.m. Saturday.

Long drives and short putts.
