First Column of the year for Alberni’s Hollies

Alberni's Deb Haggard keeps you up to date on the nitty gritty of ladies golf at Hollies

Welcome to my inaugural column about golf and the victories of a group of women who get together every Wednesday night at Hollies Golf Course. I have always dreamed of writing a book one day, so maybe this will be my first step into the literary world.

Pat and Jackie Little have owned Hollies Golf Course for nine years. As in any “mom and pop” small business, you have to wear many different hats and there are only so many hours in the day. So I offered to help Pat by writing a weekly column.

My prose will not be as well written as Pat’s, but with his support and input I hope that you will enjoy reading this column.

My goal is to get women excited about golf. Perhaps you have thought about one day starting to play golf? Maybe you want to start planning for something to do in your retirement?

Maybe you want a night out away from the kids? Perhaps you are an experienced golfer and want to practice your short game? Hollies Golf Course has a Ladies Night every Wednesday night in which you get to do all of these things. You get to experience camaraderie with a great group of women; you get to have a walk around some beautiful scenery followed by a delicious dinner.

Oh yeah, and you also get to hit a little white golf ball. Who could ask for a better night out than this?

After a round of golf, followed by a culinary feast prepared by the executive chefs at Hollies, come the much anticipated prizes. Without the generous support of our local businesses, Ladies’ Night would not be possible.

We are so lucky to live in a community in which small business is so supportive of these events.

I want to wish our good friend Deb Pearson a speedy recovery. She has golfed at Hollies for several years and has also been a sponsor of Ladies Night. Deb is an avid volunteer for Ty Watson House and spends many hours supporting this worthy cause.

Deb, we are sending you all of our positive thoughts and we are looking forward to seeing you soon.

Don’t forget, Ladies Night at Hollies, starting at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday. Ladies Night is a chance to golf in a relaxed and fun environment. Please call 250-724-5333 to reserve your spot. You can come as a group or as a single and you will be placed in a group.

Remember, life is a journey, so bring your golf clubs.
