Iron ladies show mettle in Alberni

Fifty-six golfers met the challenge of the course during the 14th Annual Iron Lady Tournament held on Oct. 15.

Fifty-six golfers met the challenge of the course during the 14th Annual Iron Lady Tournament held on Oct. 15.

The pins were “tough”, the fairways were “tough”, the blocks were “tough”…but the ladies were even “tougher”.

The iron team of Christina Proteau and Kim Evans came in with the lowest score of 79 to take first place after shooting from the black tee blocks.   Close behind them carding an 82 was the team of Dobler and Doucette, both from Morningstar Golf Course and shooting from the blue tees.

Third place was taken by the “blue” team of Morrow and Monroe with another “blue” team, Mucklow and Wilmer,

Morningstar members, shooting a 95 to take fourth. Local ladies in the prizes were Krikke/White going off the “whites” carding a 97.  Randall /Cyr, white and red shooters, totalling 99 and Sheare/Simpson , shooting from the white and red tee blocks coming in 10th…Simpson taking home three skins.

The Bowerman Excavating/MacDermott Hole-In-One for No. 17 was hotly contested. If there had been two holes-in-one both the first and second achievements would have paid out $10,000.

Thanks to our two hole sponsors for adding that incentive to our tournament.

Sharon Hillman, a representative to Ty Watson House, which is the recipient of the proceeds of this tournament,  gave us all an insight into the history and purpose of the house.

The attending ladies responded by opening their purses and their hearts and giving very generously to the silent auction and the 50/50 draw.

There was a “horse race” to get involved in, just for fun — and money — and the “skins” are always a welcome addition to the players that had a good hole.

We would like to thank the sponsors who so generously gave in the spirit of the sport.

A big “thank you” to all our friends, family and fellow golfers who supported us by buying and selling tickets and volunteering their time in the interest of  the final tournament for the ladies of the Alberni Golf Club.

See you next year, God willing and the creek’s don’t rise.
