Ladies course in Alberni a waltz

How talented are lady golfers in Alberni? They can sing, dance and play golf at the same time.

Dance Anyone?

The ladies of the Nine-Hole Divisions and the 18-Hole Division mixed things up and signed up to dance their way around the golf course this morning.

Nothing less than a waltz..1-2-3.

On the first hole a team of four golfers recorded one player’s best net score; on the second hole the two best net scores are added together and recorded.

Moving on to the third hole the three best low net scores are added into the mix and on the fourth hole they go back to just the one lowest net..etc. then continue on until all 18 holes are accounted for.

The winning team of Marj Dufour, Anne Brookes, Carol Bouchard and Shannon Haggard danced their way home with a score of 124.

Ilona McLeod, Marta Williamson, Joan Thompson and Marilyn McPherson had a swinging game to score 126 and second place.  The third team, Claudia Romaniuk, Gwyn Bowen, Katy Lekitch and Linda Christian came in with a score of 128 after some fancy footwork.

All winners went home with a supply of shiny new golf balls.  Good dancing..er, um, golfing, ladies.
