Men’s golf kicks off at Alberni GC

Welcome to another men’s golfing season at Alberni Golf Course.

Welcome to another men’s golfing season at Alberni Golf Course. We are starting off with a tuneup game, before the official opening of the Men’s Club in a couple of week.

This Sunday, March 15 is the annual Men’s Shamble. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the term, It’s a cross between a scramble and regular golf. The format is as follows: There will be four-man teams, pick your own players. All players tee off every hole, than choose which drive you want to use. Then you play your own ball from that point until you hole out.

Every player must contribute a minimum of three drives. Make sure you use your full handicaps.

As far as the scoring goes you use the best net and best gross on each hole, but it can’t be the same player.

Traps are rake and place and be sure to putt out, unless you are out of the hole.

This will be a 9 a.m. shotgun start; cost is $15 for members and $25 for guests including golf and prizes.

Please register in the pro shop, with your own group or as a single and Bruce will put you on a team.

If you can’t make it out to the club to register, phone 250-723-5422.
