Golfers shoot for turkeys

Don’t forget about the Iron Man tournament sponsored by Mac Five Golf, coming up on Oct. 23.

Alberni Golf Club men’s club captain Preben Rasmussen and his committee like to keep things interesting. This past Sunday because it was the Thanksgiving weekend, they decided to play for turkeys.

As luck would have it the weather was great with lots of sunshine, and 24 players teed it up.

Winning a turkey while coming in first was Jacques Giovetti, shooting 73. Great game, Jacques.

Also taking home turkeys were Colin Hamilton and David Turner, both shooting 76.

Preben Rasmussen and Glen Trask rounded out the gross side pocketing $10 each.

On the net side winning a turkey was Jim Rhodes, carding 65, while Ron Barker and Cal Davies both went home with turkeys for shooting 67.

Other net winners were, Tylo Smith, Jerry White, Darren Van Dyk and Masami Hiriyama.

Closest to the pin  winners were, Jacques Giovetti on No. 2, Dave Turner on No. 4 Jacques Giovetti on No. 13, Glen Trask on No. 17. Because No. 14 green is being worked on we made a short hole to the chipping green and Masami Hiriyama won the closest to the pin on that one.

Don’t forget about the Iron Man tournament sponsored by Mac Five Golf, coming up on Oct. 23. More about that in the coming weeks.
