Sunday’s men’s club event drew the largest turnout so far this year to the Alberni Golf Club.

Sunday’s men’s club event drew the largest turnout so far this year to the Alberni Golf Club.

It was good to see: everywhere you looked foursome could be seen playing for the big prizes.

Thanks to Will Pulford and his staff at Pacific Chevrolet for their generous donation to our event.

Preben Rasmussen has been doing an excellent job of dispersing the prize money. Out of 60 players the top 20 were in the money. There are too many to list so here are the top 10.

In first place was Jack Sparks followed by Clarke Crowe, Cal Davies, Ron Clark, Jim Rhodes, Sam Parhar Bill Bjornson, Colin Hamilton, Ned Stewart and Bob Matlock.

The closest to the pins were recorded by Steve Acland on No. 2, Cory Nielson on No. 4, Fred Fredrickson  on No. 13 and Steve Acland on No. 17.

The charity closest to the pin on No. 7 was Cory Nielson, taking home $42 for his effort. The final prize was the Westwind gift certificate won by Eivend Dohlen.

Next week is an open day with the usual net and gross prizes up for grabs as well as the closest to the pins and money pot.

There will be a slight twist next week as far as the format goes: Those wanting to play from the blue tees will sign up for the blue and play for gross prizes only.

This will give the guys who are playing in the West Coast Amateur June 20–21 at the Alberni Golf Club a chance to tune up their game from the blue tees.

Those wanting to play from the white tees sign up for the white and play for net prizes only.

The charity closest to the pin will stay as it is.

The closest to the pin will be as follows: Nos. 2 and 4 are for the white tees, with Nos. 13 and 17 for the blue tees.

Entry fee remains the same at $10 per player.

As for the money pot there will be a separate one for that day only. There were no money pot winners this week as all par 3’s were halved.

Please sign up in the pro shop in your own group or as a single and they will place you in a group of fine gentlemen to play with.

Tee times start at 7 a.m.
