Golf: Pitch’n’Putt: Churchill makes debut

Kathy White has the who, what, where, when, why and how in her Pitch'n'Putt golf column.

Marta Williamson was the low gross winner for the nine-hole ladies at the Alberni Golf Club last week, while LaDonna Knutson took home low gross in the same A Division.

Low putts went to Pennie Churchill.

In the B Division, it was: low gross – Lorraine Wilson; low net–Julie Swaney; low putts–Lorraine Wilson.

Chip-ins went to Marie Swain on No. 4, Katy Lekich on No. 7 and Churchill on No. 4 and No. 9.

Churchill also had a birdie on No. 9: way to go, Pennie.

LaDonna Knutson, Marta Williamson and Marie Swain shot par  on No. 4, while Julie Swaney had a par on No. 8.

Welcome to Pennie Churchill, Cass Parker, Jan Charlesworth and Bonnie McIntyre for their first time out this year.

18 hole ladies

Low gross went to Anna Marie Krikke with an 87.

Low net went to Claudia Romaniuk with a 71.

In the ball sweep, golfers received 10 points for every fairway they hit and they had to subtract their putts from that.

Apparently some golfers are worse putters than others.

Gayle Rhodes won first prize for having the highest score and Evelyn Mee (our newest member) won second by only one point. Welcome, Evelyn.

Make sure all scores are in the computer, ladies from down south.

Anyone owing dues, they must be paid before you can participate in the Monthly Medal on Tuesday.  Also we start at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday.
