Jim Proteau is crowned the men’s club champion at Alberni Golf Club this year. He is not the only winning Proteau who calls AGC home: his wife is Christina Proteau

Congratulations go out to Jim Proteau, who defeated Jacques Giovetti after 31 holes of head-to-head golf to claim the title of Alberni Golf Club champion for 2011.

Proteau said that he has been close on several occasions but this is the first time he has won the championship. Way to go, Jim!

We also had a skins competition; skins were worth $10 each. Craig Acland was the big winner on the gross side, winning five skins. Next was Sam Parhar with two, followed by Steve Acland with one.

On the net side Gerry Fagan won three, Vic Carlton won two and Gord Cutting and Shiv Dass each won singles.
