Hollies ladies golf: Haggard goes animal

Hollies ladies golf writer Deb Haggard hits a hole in one in every column.

This beautiful September weather continues to keep those golf clubs in use.

It is going to be sad to have to put them away for the winter. But no matter how long and how good the golf season is, winter is inevitable. So take advantage of these beautiful evenings and shoot a round of golf.

Ladies night at Hollies Golf course will continue until the end of September with a start time of 5:30 p.m.

Sandy Toombs won the “B” division with Donna Shannon coming in a close second. Carol Bouchard won the “A” division with a score of 36, followed by LaDonna Knutson.

Longest putt, sponsored by A Step Above, was won by Karen Vandermolen. Lisa Young took home the second closest to the pin award, sponsored by Sunnydale Golf and Country Club and Rhonda Holcombe won the second closest to the pin prize, sponsored by Safeway.

Tineke Rodger took home the longest drive of the night, sponsored by Tim Hortons. Mary Ann McConnell and Sue Steinhauer are still tied at the top of the ringer board at a score of 28.

Ladies night has raised a total of $500 to date for Ty Watson House. In addition to raising money for the Ty Watson House, there is a monthly 50/50 draw, with the proceeds going to the SPCA.

The deuce pot still hasn’t been won and stands at $225. We still have a couple of weeks left in the season and will be a really nice pot for a lucky golfer to take home.

For all of the Beach Boy fans, you might know the song Good Vibrations.

The song was written because Brian Wilson’s mother had good feelings towards animals. I was told recently that I had good vibrations.

Could it be because I have three dogs and one cat? I also help take care of Sylvestor, our resident cat at the office. A cat that lives in the wild beside my house has also adopted me.

It helps to prove my theory that golfers are a very giving bunch and support many worthwhile causes.
