Club championship up in Alberni

The Charity Golf Classic in Alberni last weekend was a huge success.

By all reports the Charity Golf Classic last weekend was a huge success. There was  nothing but positive comments about the changes implemented this year.

When all was said and done 135 golfers and non-golfers hit the links for a great day of fun. That total surpasses last year’s registrations of 105.

It will be a couple of months before the committee know the exact amount raised for the charities.

In Men’s Club action, approximately 40 men qualified for the club championship. Be sure to look in the clubhouse for the flight you are in, and also the matchups. They should be posted  no later than Thursday, July 14.

In the ball sweep Jacques Giovetti had the best of the day, shooting gross 76 and taking home three balls for his effort.

Jim Rhodes came in with 77, winning two balls.

On the net side of things, Darrell Van Os shot 62 to claim three balls and Cal Davie shot 67, winning two balls.

Closest to the pin were won by Gene Kimoto on No. 2; Steve Acland pocketed $21 for the charity closest to the pin on No. 4; Dennis Debolt for his second shot on No. 6; Glen Trask on No. 13; and Dennis Debolt on No. 17.

Next Sunday is an open day, with the charity closest to the pin, money pot and ball sweep happening.
