The Men’s Club officially came to a close on Sunday at Alberni Golf Club.

The Men’s Club officially came to a close on Sunday at Alberni Golf Club.

After a great year of golf under the direction of Club Captain Preben Rasmussen, the season ended with a four-man scramble. This wasn’t your run-of-the-mill scramble; it was played on an altered course, which made for some very interesting holes— especially when an extra hole was added to make it a 19-hole round.

The teams were computer picked with the shotgun start at 9 a.m.

After golf there were a few announcements, One of which I am happy to inform everyone that Rasmussen will continue on as club captain for the upcoming year, along with his trusty sidekick Cal Davies.

The prize presentation started about 1:30 p.m., with the foursome of Jim Proteau, Ron Barker, Jim Petersen and George DeFrane emerging as the winners.

In second place were Craig Acland, Steve White, Al Wright and Wolf Suhr. Third place winners were Fred Fredrickson, Damian Dods, Masami Hirayama, and Dennis Frykas; fourth were  Mike Savard, Bob Matlock, Phil Anker and Cliff O’Laney; fifth place Cory Neilson, Devin Cusson, Wayne Johnston, Don Grill and Chad Wutke.

Brett Parhar, James Weening, Gord Unger and Vic Carlton finished sixth; Lloyd Fairley, Ken Fong, Don McGowen and Paul Saunier finished seventh; Steve Acland, Gary Korven, Steve Pointon, and  Bob Vandermolen finished eighth.

The final prize was awarded to the team of Preben Rasmussen, Cal Davies, Gerry White and Mel Trelvik.

Closest to the pins were won by Masami Hirayama on No. 2, Dennis Frykas on No. 4 Don McGowan on No. 6, Gerry White on No. 11, Mike Savard on No. 13 and Jim  Proteau on No. 19.

Long putts were won by Al Wright on No. 1 James Weening on No. 9 and Steve White on No. 12.

That’s it for me!

See you in the spring.
