The ladies club played their first golf game of the season on March 26 at Alberni Golf Club, and they’ve wasted no time taking advantage of the string of good weather days the Alberni Valley has enjoyed.
Low gross was a tie between Janice Cross and Patsy Gauthier.
Low net had a tie as well between Gayle Rhodes and Kathy White.
For the ball sweep we had to pick three holes we wanted to eliminate from our score before we went out to play. There was a tie on that as well, between Gayle Rhodes, Teresa Cutting and Kathy White. A draw was made and Cutting got to pick a prize out of the basket.
Welcome, new ladies to the nine-hole division of the Alberni Golf Club: Sharon Lowe, Linda Nicklin, Angie Gauthier and Kelly Gauthier (and welcome back Nancy Blair).
It was like summer conditions on the course, dry under foot and nicely groomed fairways.
Low putts went to Kelly Gauthier with runners up and honorable mention to Angie Gauthier, LaDonna Knutson and Pat Dahlquist.
Linda Nicklin had a birdie on No. 2. Kelly Gauthier chipped in on No. 6.
There was a tie for the monthly medal between Leona Fowler and Shirley Goodman. After retrogression was done, Goodman was the winner of the monthly medal.
Goodman also holds the challenge pin; Leona Fowler will try to take it away from her next week.
Low gross goes to Anna Marie Krikke with a 95.
Low net was shared between Leona Fowler and Shirley Goodman with a 75.
The ball sweep today was add holes one through five and 15 through 18, take the gross from these nine holes and subtract half of your handicap.
Krikke won the low gross part of it and there was a tie for the net between Leona Fowler, Carol Hastings and Patsy Gauthier (Gauthier won on a draw).
There will be a meeting after golf next Tuesday, April 9.
