Coast Classic classy in Alberni

Knox Coupland's column on Alberni golf if chalk full of good ingredients, just like a good soup.

The Alberni Golf Club’s annual West Coast Amateur Tournament was held Saturday and Sunday  with 94 entrants vying  for prizes under cloudy but dry conditions.

The top overall winner was Dustin  Yeager from Royal Colwood firing a two day total of 138.  Tyler Vananrooy from Sunnydale was in 2nd place.  Greg Palmer was the low Port Alberni player, with Lee Haney from Uplands in fourth place.

Fifth place was taken by Port Alberni’s Brett Parhar.

The top five net winners in the following order were Ron Clark from Port Alberni, Bob Turner also from Port Alberni, William Crowther from Morningstar, Ron Barker from Port Alberni and Ted Stewart also from Port Alberni.  As usual the West Coast Amateur was a huge success for both players and fans.

Monday saw the Stableford event won by Ted Stewart posting 42 points. Doug Richmond and Jacques Giovetti tied for second with 40 points.  Bill Bjornson was next with 38 points followed by Jim Rhodes and Barry Bowman with 37 points.   Bob Turner and Steve Acland followed with 36 points.

Closest to the pin winners were Don Ferster on No. 2, Ilona McLeod on No. 4, Ted Stewart on No. 13 and Ilona McLeod again on No. 17.

Several draws were made for $30 and winners were Ron Clark, Chazz Lazorko, Gary McLeod, Sharon Hillman, Pam Turner, Gail Rhodes, Ray Nicklen, and Rose Chretien.  Winning sleeves of balls were Peter Burton, Ilona McLeod, Dennis Frykas, Don Ferster, Livio Tedesco and Henry Chretien.

Winning meat draws were Fred Fredrickson and Bob Price.

Just a reminder there will be no Men’s Club event this Sunday as the Ladies West Coast Open is happening.
