Mens golf opens in Alberni

Men’s Club opening day on Sunday was greeted by an almost cloudless day and even though it was a little chilly early, 56 players took part.

As the day worn on it warmed up and was probably the finest golfing day we’ve had this year. A big thank you to the firm of Duncan Sabine Collyer Accountants for sponsoring the four-man best ball event.

Low gross on the day was posted by the team of Brett Parhar, Sam Parhar, Ken Fong and Bill Bjornson.     Second low gross went to Craig Acland, Steve Acland, Livio Tedesco, and Bob Matlock.

Low net was achieved by Fred Fredrickson, Glen Trask, Al Wright, and Darren Van Dyk. Second low net went to Dave Mann, Steve Pointon, Gord Cutting and Phil Anker.

Scoring third low net was the team of Mickey Keeley, Tom Thompson, Steve White, and Jerry White.

The Acland brothers took care of the first two KP’s (closest to the pin) Craig on No. 2 and Steve collecting $36 for the Charity KP on No. 4.

Other KPs went to Fred Fredrickson on No. 13 and Brett Parhar on No. 17. Closest to the pin for the second shot on No. 6 went to Brian Tall.

Darren Van Dyk collected $78, scoring the only net birdie on No. 15 for a skin.  Craig Acland won a gift certificate from the Westwind Pub for the long drive on No. 5.

Next week is an open day with the option of $5 skins. Please don’t forget to enter the money pot and the charity closest to the pin.

Book your own tee times in your own group starting at 8 a.m. Tee times are set aside for the men’s club every Sunday till 10 a.m.

The pro shop would like all men’s club members playing on Sunday to book their tee time no later than 8 a.m. Saturday.

Long drives and short putts, everyone.
