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.

March 26

18-hole ladies

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).

Linda Nicklin had a birdie on No. 2.  Kelly Gauthier chipped in on No. 6.
