Hollies Ladies Golf: Ladies got some game

Alberni ladies golfers who think they have some game are invited to Hollies Golf Course to break a club record.

I have always had a drive that pushed me to try for perfection, and golf is a game in which perfection stays just out of reach.

Have you got game ladies? Pat Little has put out a challenge to the women golfing at Hollies.

It has been seven years since four time Canadian champion Mary Anne Hayward set a course record of 29. The challenge is for you to come out and beat the course record. Sound impossible? Our top players from ladies night, Maryann McConnell and Sue Steinhaeur both shot a 34. I have a feeling that these two women are going to battle it out this year and one of them will beat that score.

The longest putt, sponsored by Urban Hair Studio, was won by Tineke Rodgers. Closest to the pin on the second shot, sponsored by Shoppers Drug Mart, was won by Donna Cox. Sandy Price, visiting our community from Calgary, won KP. Sandy, enjoy your visit to Port Alberni. The longest most accurate drive was won by Janet Van Pelt.

Sue Steinhaeur is currently leading the ringer board at 31, with Maryann close behind at 32. Ladies, how low can you go?

Running any small business requires a lot of hard work and dedication. But a lot of that hard work and dedication comes from employees who are often not recognized.

Charlene is a long time employee of Hollies and works tirelessly throughout the busy season ensuring that ladies and men’s nights and other special events run smoothly. She comes in every Wednesday and prepares dinner that is comparable to the best restaurants in Port Alberni. Charlene, we salute you.

Don’t forget, ladies night every Wednesday at Hollies. Tee off time is 6 p.m. Call 250-724-5333 to reserve your spot.
