What is going on with the weather?

For the second time this season the Sunday Men’s Club was a washout. Not to worry the Alberni Chrysler/ Toyota two man best ball will be held this coming Sunday May 22.

It’s the long weekend but the weather promises to be much improved.

The format is two man teams with the best net and best gross counting on each hole. The shotgun is set to go off at 8 a.m.

Please try to be there no later than 7:45 a.m. Register with your partner in the Pro Shop or as a single and Bruce will find you a partner.

You can also sign up by phoning, 250-723-5422.

Congratulations go out to junior member, Greg Palmer playing at Arbutus Ridge May 13-14.

On the Friday he came in with an outstanding 73, followed on Saturday by a 68. The field consisted of 72 players from across Canada, including National Junior Team Members.

Greg’s fourth place finish earned  him a spot on the Canadian Junior Boys Team. Way to go Greg. Jeffrey Dagg also playing in the event placed 33 in the field.

Due to soggy conditions the Stableford was cancelled on Monday, but will be held next Monday May 23.

There will be a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m., although the early birds who wish to enter the competition may tee off earlier.

If you compile 36 points which is right around your handicap you will automatically win $35 in club money.

The more points you rack up the more you can win.

For those who may be off their game be sure to turn you score cards in as there will be several draws each day.

There will also be closest to the pin prizes of sleeves of balls, No. 2 will be for men with Handicap of 15 or higher; No. 4 will be for all the women; No. 13 for men with handicaps lower than 15 and No. 17 will be for all competitors.

The cost remains the same as other years at $20.
