No snow means better go at Alberni Golf

The sun was out in the Alberni Valley and so were the golfers for Alberni golf's Partner With A Pro.

  • Apr. 12, 2012 11:00 a.m.

Sunday, April 8 was a much better day for playing golf than the previous snow bound Sunday.

Sunday, April 8 was the Partner with a Pro competition.  Many thanks to The Westwind Pub for their continued support of this event.

First low gross went to Craig Acland followed by second low gross Bill Barrett.

First low net was posted by Mickey Keeley followed in order by Jim Rhodes, Cal Davies, Paul Saulnier, and Bob Matlock.

Closest to the pin winners were Fred Fredrickson on No. 2.  Bill Bjornson collected $26 for the Charity closest to the pin on No. 4.  Bob Matlock was closest to the pin with his second shot on No. 6.  Other closest to the pin winners were Jim Rhodes on No.13 and Craig Acland on No. 17.

There was no long drive this week.  No one won the hidden hole this week so it will be carried over till next week.

This coming Sunday is an open day with the option  of getting on the $5 skins game.   You can make up your own group or enter as a single.  Available tee times move up to 7:30 a.m. this Sunday.  Don’t forget to book your time no later than 8 a.m. Saturday.  Also a last reminder to enter the money pot and charity closest to the pin.

If Craig Acland wins again this week he may be subjected to blood tests before the prizes are awarded.
