Green’s can’t keep Alberni foursome down

It was fun in the sun at the Dennnis Jonsson Scramble at teh alberni Valley Golf Club.

The big winners in the Dennis Jonsson Scramble at Alberni Golf Club are

Many thanks to Dennis Jonsson, for his continued support of the Men’s Club at Alberni Golf Course. One of these years we will get Dennis out to play in his own event.

The scores of the Dennis Jonsson Scramble weren’t as good as they could have been due to the greens being punched and sanded a few days earlier. Nonetheless there was a three-way tie for first place with a score of 62.

The foursome of Glen Trask, Mickey Keeley, Mark Anderson and Paul Saulnier emerged the winners.

Second was the team of Steve White, Bill Morin, Jules Gauldreault and Dennis Hillman. Third spot went to Fred Fredrickson, Don McGowan, John Jones and Gerry Blender.

Fourth position was captured by Brett Parhar, Kyle Luchinsik, and Gerry Toms, with fifth spot going to Pat McKay, Al De St Remy, Clint Wilson and Gerry Fagan. The final prize was won by Doug Richmond, Cal Davies, Mel Trelvik and Vic Carlton.

The closest to the pin winners were, Kevin Carlton on No. 2, Frank Hastings collected $27 for the charity closest to the pin on No. 4, Dennis Hillman on No. 13 and Jerry Swaney on No. 17. The long drive on No. 15 was won by none other than  Clint “long ball” Wilson.

Congratulations go out to Vic Carlton and Brett Parhar, who each recorded a hole in one earlier in the season. They were presented with  beautiful trophies and $50 from the Men’s Club (yours is coming, Brett.).

Next week Sept. 4 is an optional event called the Lone Ranger. See the club captain for details on how that is played. This competition will be sponsored by Dairy Queen.

The usual ball sweep, money pot and charity  closest  to the pin will be up for grabs. Be sure to book your tee time with your own group starting at 7 a.m.
