Good eggs turn out for golf scramble

Ten teams competed in the Alberni Golf Club's first Business Ladies’ Golf Scramble of the season on Sunday, April 29.

Alberni Golf Club hosted the first Business Ladies’ Golf Scramble for the season on Sunday, April 29.  Ten teams of ladies were out for a fun day of golf.

The theme was “Poker”, with different directions on each hole to give the teams a chance to win more cards to make the best poker hand.  The team with the best poker hand was Joy Paxton, Laurie Josefson, Leanne Frechette and Maria Bodt, each taking home some “club bucks”.

The teams were then picked by random draw to come up to pick their prizes from the wonderful selection on the table, many of which were donated by our generous sponsors.

Closest to the pin on hole No. 4 was won by Marg Toms (high handicap) and by Muriel Abbott (low handicap).  Hole No. 2 proved to be too elusive for anyone to land on the green this day.

Long drive on hole No. 5 was won by Joy Paxton (high) and Suzanne Jones (low).

Squiggly line on No. 6 was won by Cheryl McKay (high) and by Crystal Hiltunen (low).  The raffle prize – a hybrid – was won by Diane Luke.  The 50/50 was won by Joy Paxton.

The Tuesday Business Ladies actually started up on April 3, but the weather hasn’t been kind.  Thankfully, it is now improved.  Every Tuesday, we tee off between 3:30 – 6 p.m., and there is one scramble a month.

Every time you come out for Tuesday Business Ladies’ Golf, whether for regular golf or scrambles, your name goes into the draws at the year-end scramble.

Also, every closest-to-the-pin winner is eligible to go in the shootout at the year-end scramble.  K.P. winners so far this season are:  Kathy Toms (2), Janice Boyko, Katy Lekich (2), Muriel Abbott, Marg Toms and Suzanne Jones.

The next scramble is on Tuesday, May 29 with a 5:30 p.m. shotgun start.  Stop by or phone the pro shop (723-5422) to sign up.  And you can sign up as a team or as an individual; either way, we would love to see you.
