Partner with a pro at the Alberni Golf Club

Several men took part in the blind partners optional event on Sunday, with the duo of Ron Clark and Darrell Van Os winning.

The way this works is, you pay $5 in the pro shop before teeing off. When all men have teed off the club captain draws names out of a hat and that’s who your partner is for the day. You may not even be playing in the same group as your partner.

Your net score and your partner’s net score is where you finish is the event. By all accounts everyone enjoyed this format.

Finishing in second place was the team of Glen Trask and Livio Tedesco, third it was Gerry Blender and Bill Morin. Fourth went to Mel Trelvik and Dennis Debolt. The final prize was won by Gary McLeod and Fred Fredrickson.

In the ball sweep Dennis Debolt collected three balls for shooting a gross 78, while Jim Proteau came in with a gross 79, winning two balls.

On the net side of things Livio Tedesco shot a 66, taking home three balls and Bob Matlock carded a 69 to win two balls.

Closest to the pin prizes were won by Wayne Johnstone on No. 2, Jim Proteau won the charity closest to the pin on No. 4 (taking home $24), Livio Tedesco on No. 13 and Bill Morin on No. 17.

Up next for the men’s club is the Westwind Pub Partner with a Pro competition. When you come into the clubhouse on Sunday morning, you pick a number out of a hat and the corresponding pro playing in the Masters tournament will be your “partner” for the day. Your net score added to the pro’s gross score is where you will finish in the event.

It doesn’t matter what the pro has shot just what he shoots on Sunday.

He could be dead-last in the field and come through with a spectacular round as your partner.

This is an individual event. Be sure to register in your own foursome or as a single and you will be placed on a team.

Tee times start at 8 a.m. with a group going off hole No. 1 and at the same time another group will be teeing off No. 10. In other words there will be two groups going off at 8 a.m., another two groups at 8:07 and so on until all the men’s club members are away.

The usual fee of $10 applies. Don’t forget to register for the money pot, ball sweep and charity closest to the pin for $2 each.
