Cyr notches 34 points in Alberni ladies golf

Kate Cyr amassed 34 points to take home a prize in the Alberni 18-hole ladies division.

For the 18 Hole Ladies Division: Chip-In gives you 5 points; One putt gives you 3 points; Two putts gives you 1 point…but if you three putt then you give back 2 points.  Add ‘em up and the most points gives you a prize.

Katy Cyr was the gal who took home the prize amassing a whopping total of 34 points…no three putts in that game.  Runner up was Carol Bouchard who had a total of 29. Low Gross scorer was Carol Bouchard with 89.  Low net scorer was Katy Cyr with a 71.

Janice Cross was not here to defend her title of Challenge Pin holder so it automatically goes to Katy with her Low Net score.  She’ll be defending her position next week.

The Handicap Cup playoffs are still in progress but because the greens are being “punched”, it may be impossible to play the competition before Tuesday.  Gayle Rhodes will schedule you to play next Tuesday…let her know if you haven’t been able to get your game in before then and she will set up the draw accordingly.

The Mt. Brenton Tournament was held last week and was won handily by our own Christina Proteau.  Pat Nicklin also attended and reported that it was a great tournament, encouraging more ladies to attend next year.

Alberni Golf Club ladies attended the Solheim Tournament at Cottonwood Golf Course last Friday and came home boasting a one point lead, enough to stay ahead of the rest of the pack.

9 Hole Division

Our ladies attended the Interclub at Eaglecrest Golf Course on August 17.  Katy Lekich and Sharon Hillman tied for the Low Gross position.  Low net went to Trish Watson while Marie Swain walked off with the Low Putts honour.  Alberni Golf Club ladies won the trophy against Nanaimo, Eaglecrest, Qualicum and Arrowsmith.

A Division:  Closer to home, Pennie Churchill was the Low Gross winner.  Low Net was taken by Marta Williamson and Kathy Toms recorded the Lowest Putts.

B Division:  Audrey Pemberton took the honours for Low Gross.  Carol Novak and Marilyn Nyhuus tied with the Low net placing.  Yvette Pedersen snagged the putting pot for this group.

Kathy Toms had a great Chip-In on number 3.

Denie Jonsson Motors Scramble want to invite all ladies to come on out and play.  Actually, your “August” presence is requested to attend.  It’ll be this Tuesday, Aug. 30 with a 5:30 p.m. shot gun start.

This event includes golf, dinner and prizes…sign up as a single, in pairs, threes or your own foursome.  Bring a non-perishable item for the food bank to be part of a special prize raffle.

Call the Pro Shop at (250)723-5422 for more information.  Everyone is more than welcome…you don’t have to have even golfed before to come out and have fun.
