Cup not handicapped by rain in Alberni

A brave group of ladies in Alberni braved the elements to play in the Handicap Cup.

A little sun, a little rain, a beautiful rainbow and some very die hard golfers were out today for ladies day.

A courageous group of ladies resulting in some serious matches being played down to the wire.

For the Handicap Cup A-flight winner was Ilona McLeod and B-flight winner was BJ. Harper with runner-up Teresa Cutting.

The handicap cup is elimination playoffs starting in August, with two divisions and lots of matches, congratulations ladies, pictures to follow.

Today’s results were as follows, low gross Leona Fowler, low net Kathy White.  Marilyn McPherson took away a golf ball for the ball sweep and Gweyn Bowen took the other ball.

The challenge pin was up for grabs, with Leona Fowler winning by default.
