Cream rises to the tip in Alberni ladies golf

Carol Bouchard challenged long time holder of the Alberni Golf Club’s ladies’ challenge pin, Kathy White, and rose, like the cream on a gallon of milk, straight to the top.

Gayle Rhodes will be testing her mettle next week to see how she fares against Bouchard.

Low gross was taken by Janice Cross, whose score was good for the low net position as well.  Patsy Gauthier came in a close second for low net.

The ball sweep was on a new format for Tuesday and will be changing week by week.  The “hit or miss” method meant that each player must hit the fairway on each drive (the hole that they’re playing) to score extra points. When the round is done, they get 10 points for each fairway hit, then they have to subtract the number of putts they had from their total points.

This new format spat out two winners: Patsy Gauthier in first place with a total of 121 and Claudia Romaniuk in second with 119 points. Each player had a choice of a prize from the gift basket. Hmm, wonder what they’ll have for us for next week?

The pro shop computer opened on May 10, so it’s time to get those scores entered—good or bad!

The Solheim teams have been organized for May 13 and players from Alberni will be commuting to Glacier Greens in Comox for this competition.  Shirley Goodman is the lady to see if you have any questions or concerns. Tee time is an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start. Wear your pink shirts, ladies and good luck!

Next Tuesday, May 17 is the try-out day for the Zone 6 CTC tournament here at Alberni Golf Club.  Make sure you sign up for the try-out before you head out to play.

The winners will be notified right after golf.  This tournament will be played at a later date at Myrtle Point in Powell River.

Nine-hole:

Division A: Wendy Lukas came out at the top of her “Glass”, taking the low gross for the day.  Low net was scored by Marie Swain while Mary Dyson came away with the putting pot honours.

Division B: Low gross was scored by Bonnie McIntryre with Louisa Berlinski taking the low net. Bonnie and Yvette Pedersen were neck and neck for their putting abilities and shared the pot.

Both divisions were happy to welcome Isobel Redford to their morning nine-hole groups, and happier still to report that Kathy Toms had a nice little chip-in on hole No. 14.

A reminder to all members: this Saturday afternoon will be the official members opening, which will include nine holes of golf followed by dinner and dancing. Sign up at the pro-shop.

Ladies West Coast Open is actively looking for teams to register. This tournament takes place on June 16. Get your partner, sign up a registration sheet (found in the restaurant or ladies lounge at the golf club) pass it in to the pro shop and get ready for a fun game followed by dinner and prizes.

The B.C. Women’s Amateur Championship follows close on the heels of the Ladies West Coast and they’re looking for players—and volunteers. Sounds like a good chance to see some great golf. You don’t have to be a player to be a volunteer.

Let’s have all Alberni Golf Club ladies—dare we say the “cream of the crop”—come out for these events.
