Golfers on the rocks at Alberni GC

Golf was a rock 'n roll affair for ladies' night at Alberni Golf Course last week.

I love those rocks!

Recently, a host of Alberni Golf Club  volunteers made up a work bee and laid rocks along the creek bank on hole No. 7.  In the group I was in today, three out of four of us hit those rocks and the golf balls were flying around as if in a pinball machine.

Exciting stuff, especially when two out of three of those wayward balls ended up in favourable places worth taking a shot at the pin.

Is that called “course management” or “doggone good luck”?  No matter what you call it, it makes for a good laugh!

Not much laughing was going on in the combination of Janice Cross and Patsy Gauthier regarding the Challenge Pin though. A few groans out of Gauthier when Cross clinched her win before the match was over, was all I heard.

Claudia Romaniuk giggled a bit when she took closest to the pin honours on hole No. 4 in her handicap group. Shannon Haggard was the other ball winner at the same hole, but in a different handicap category.

Alberni’s “B” Team had a great year.  When the laughing was all done they found they were second only to Pheasant Glen, who carded a 156.25 to their 153.

The “C” Team fared much worse, caught between a rock and a hard place, coming in dead last. Granted, those results were carded after playing only three games.

Gabriola got their four games in to take first place.

The final Solheim Cup match will take place this Friday to be played at Glacier Greens. Watch for those results in next week’s News.

The ringerboard is on it’s last go round; get your scores pegged up as the results will be taken after the final round on Sept. 28.

Nine-hole ladies

A Division—Sharon Hillman and Gwyn Bowen chuckled to themselves when they heard they had the low gross as well as the fewest putts in today’s round. Julie Swaney came in with the low net.

B Division—Lesley Anderson and Lorraine Wilson shared the honours in the low gross heading with Wilson also sharing her low putts with Marj Dufour.

Audrey Pemberton was alone in the low net category.

Just for the fun of it, Wilson also had a par on No. 6.

She who laughs last, laughs best!
