Pitch N’ Putt: Williamson shines with low gross honours

Marta Williamson wins low gross and more at Alberni Golf Club's ladies' day golf.

We had a wonderful day on the Alberni Golf Course on June 10, 2014.  It rained in the night and was a beautiful for us to play.

In the low handicap group, Marta Williamson won the low gross, Kath Stolth took low net and Marie Swain and Carol Jaworski shared the lowest putts.

For the high handicap group Lorraine Wilson won the low gross, Mary Ann Maddison took the low net as well as the lowest putts for the day.

Marta Williamson had a birdie on number two.  Marta also had pars on numbers four and five, Kath Stolth had a par on number seven and Claudia Romaniuk had one on number three.

Marie Swain had a chip in on number five.

The results of the Mount Brenton Interclub was Marta Williamson won the Low Net overall,  La Donna Knutson won the Low Gross for the Alberni team and Lorraine Wilson won the low net for Alberni.

In the 18-hole ladies Low Gross went to Janice Cross with an 88,  Barb Sheare won low net with 66.

Carol Hastings held the Challenge Pin, Marilyn McPherson challenged her and Carol is still holding the pin.

For the KP challenge Gayle Rhodes won on hole number three and Patsy Gauthier won on number 12.

Next Tuesday we are having a scramble with the nine hole ladies , 8 AM shotgun start.  If you have a friend that would like to join in let Patsy know so she can add them to the draw.  It is twenty dollars for non Alberni members, we will have coffee and muffins afterwards.   Sounds like a fun time.

Still time to enter the Ladies West Coast Amateur ,  Big Break theme, sounds like it will be a lot of fun.  Entry forms are on the cork board in the restaurant .

In the words of Mickey Mantle:  He who has the fastest cart never has to play a bad lie.
