Golf opens at Alberni Golf Club

Another golf season has rolled around— not soon enough for most of us.

Opening day at the Alberni Golf Club starts Sunday, March 27 with the Duncan, Sabine, Collyer, Partners four-man best ball. The best net and best gross count on each hole,

Please register in the pro shop with your own foursome or as a single and you will be placed on a team. The shotgun start takes place at 9 a.m. following a short meeting. Try to be in the clubhouse no later than 8:30 a.m.

Breakfast will be available starting at 7:30 a.m. on opening and closing days only.

There are 13 special events spread through the season, which will cost $10 to enter (to cover prizes for the day). This year there are some optional events which cost $5 to enter. They will be held on the open days.

As in the past couple of years the Men’s Club dues are only $10, which entitles members to some awesome draws on the windup day as well as throughout the season. For every Sunday you play, event or open day your name goes in that many times for a draw to be held on Oct. 2.

We have some new score cards, to be used by the Men’s Club only on Sunday mornings. We would like to thank Houle Printing Inc. for their generous donation of the cards.

The club championship will be match play again this year; club captain Fred Fredrickson and head pro Bruce MacDonald will run things. Hopefully Jeff Dagg will be around to defend his title. Qualifying for the Championship takes place on July 10, so

keep that day open.

Just a couple of reminders, gentlemen: When you come into the clubhouse on Sunday mornings there will be three boxes set up, one for the ball sweep, one for the money pot and one for the charity closest to the pin. You must put $2 in each box and register your name before teeing off if you intend on entering.

The charity closest to the pin is usually set up on No. 2; if you haven’t paid your two dollars please don’t write your name on the card no matter how close you are. P

lease make sure that you fill out your score cards correctly: last name, gross score handicap and your net score. Also make sure the addition is right. Any incorrect score cards turned in will be disqualified.

Remember to keep up to the group ahead of you, it makes for a smoother round for everyone.
