Hollies Ladies Golf:Summer’s over but golf isn’t

Summer always goes by far too quickly. But the good news is that this is great golfing weather, says Hollies ladies golf scribe Deb Haggard

There is definitely that feel of fall in the air these days.

Summer always goes by far too quickly. But the good news is that this is great golfing weather. The ground is dry so you get lots of roll and your ball goes much further (great for a duffer like me). It’s not too hot and you still have the time to get in a round of golf in the evening.

The Boston Pizza longest putt of the night was won by Sandy Toombs.  Suzanne Jones won closest to the pin and won a round of golf at Sunnydale Golf and Country Club. Tineke Rodger won the Safeway closest to the pin prize.

The Tim Horton’s longest drive was won by Candice Werner.

Low gross winner in the “B” division was won by Karen Vandermolen, with Rhonda Holcombe claiming second spot. The “A” division low gross winner was LaDonna Knutson with Suzanne Jones winning the runner up prize.

The Shopper’s Drug Mart leaders in the ringer board have not changed since last week. Maryann McConnell and Sue Steinhauer remain at the top spot.

We are almost halfway to our goal of raising a $1,000 to donate to Ty Watson House. Come on ladies, I know that we can reach that goal. We still have a few weeks left.

Amazingly the deuce pot has not been won yet and the pot stands at $191. I am challenging all female golfers to come out and to win that pot before the end of the season.

I was very pleased to see the name of Candice Werner as a prize winner. I have known Candice since she and my daughter met at pre-school. They remain friends to this day. But what I am enjoying is that Candice and I get to be friends now and play a round of golf together.

Because the nights are getting shorter, starting Wednesday Sept. 5, the start time for Ladies night will be 5:30 p.m. Come out and meet some new people, enjoy a round of golf, followed by a dinner and prizes.
