Giovetti cards 77 for top spot Sunday at Alberni Golf

We have two sponsored men’s days left this year: Sept. 11 and Sept. 18.

In Men’s Club action last Sunday, Jacques Giovetti had the game of the day carding a gross 77, followed by Colin Hamilton with 78.

On the net side of the day it was Vic Carlton shooting 64. Losing by retrogression also with 64 was Masami Hiriyama, third low net went to Steve  Pointion with 67.

Closest to the pin winners were Cal Davies on No. 2, Vic Carlton on No. 4, Darren Van Dyk on No. 13 and 17.

Davies took home $34 for the only birdie on No. 13 and Colin Hamilton pocketed $34 for the only birdie on No. 17.

Next Sunday is an open day with prizes awarded for the best gross and best nets as well as the closest to the pins and money pots up for grabs. Please book your own tee time in your own group starting at 7 a.m.
