Ladies golf was full of hits and misses in Alberni

It was fun under the sun for lady golfers at the Alberni Golf Club.

“Hit and Miss” was the format for this week’s ball sweep, for the ladies golfing at Alberni Golf Club.

Hit the Fairway on each hole, take 10 points; miss the fairway and you get no points. At the end of the game, add up the total amount of putts, subtract that from the total of fairway points and record your net score.

Kathy White had a slamming game and won the sweep with her total of 119 points.

B-Jay Harper with her accurate drives was close behind with a total of 112 points.

Shannon Haggard was the Challenge Pin holder and Pat Nicklin was the challenger. Nicklin is now the Challenge Pin holder; B-Jay Harper will contest the title next week.

Quite often when a golfer has a good game lots of honours fall into her lap.  Harper’s game was good enough to also give her the monthly medal, so her name will go into that contest as well with her low net score of 66. She was in a class all by herself.

Low gross honours were shared between Carol Bouchard and Janice Cross, who each shot an 89.

The first round of the 18-hole ladies club championship was played on Tuesday and the six teams of competitors were to play their second round on Thursday.

The play on Tuesday will be the final round. This competition will have a low gross winner, who will be the champion of the 18-Hole Ladies Division, and also a low net winner.
