Pitch ‘n Putt: Three G ladies golf

Age is a state of mind when it comes to golf. Some of the nicest grandmothers known, for instance, are golfers.

Gardening, golf and grandchildren turn most of us into “3-G” women, but not necessarily in that order.

Some of the nicest grandmothers I know are golfers and many of them were out in the sunshine today.  Dorea Crawford, for one…great to see her out for the first time this year.

Two other grandmothers (golfers) duked it out over the challenge pin.  Carol Bouchard was being challenged was behind all the way while her opponent, Gayle Rhodes was leading.

Gayle kept the pressure on and met the challenge. The challenge pin is only played for on the first Tuesday in every month.  Last season there were eight winners and next week they get to play off for the pin at our regular Tuesday format.  Contenders are Marie Randall, B-Jay Harper, Janice Cross, Kathy White, Leona Fowler and Carol Bouchard.

Low gross shooter for today was Anna Marie Krikke bringing home a score of 86.  That gave her a net of 68.  Well done.  low net honours were taken with a tie by Doreen Grant and Leona Fowler with their Low Nets of 71.

Thanks to Patsy Gauthier, today we got to play with the pro’s…on paper only.  Each player picked a number which corresponded with a pro whose score was added to our own…Low gross took the prize and in this case it was Anna Marie Krikke with a combined score of 160 points.  Leona Fowler came in second with a combined score of 171.

The Bea Kullman Cup and Evergreen Savings Credit Union Field Day was the focus on our game this morning.

There were 20 participants in the field.  Winners were determined by their low net achievement and Doreen Grant took it for the high handicappers while Anna Marie Krikke was successful for the low handicappers.

Nine Hole Division:  Jan Charlesworth had the best score to take the low gross position.  Katy Lekich had a sizzling game to take the low net scoring.
