Prizes draw out men’s club golfers

The Ages Tournament was staged by the Alberni Golf Club.

The Ages Tournament was  staged by the Alberni Golf Club’s Men’s Club recently, and the generous prize table supplied by Little Bavaria generated a big turnout.

James Startup and his hidden partner put up the winning low gross score followed by Sammy Parhar and Shawn Bondman,  Clint Wilson and Gerry Blender and Preban Rasmussen and Dennis Debolt.

On the net side Garry Korven and Mel Trelvik fired a blistering net 51 to lead the pack.

Wayne Johnson and Masami Hirayama took second low net followed by Livio Tedesco and Ron Clark, Gene Kimoto and Vic Carlton, and Jim Lawler and Frank Hastings.

Gerry Blender posted the KP on No. 2 and Bill Bennett was KP on No. 17.

Ron Clark was closest to the pin with his second shot on No. 11. The hidden hole was No. 1 and nobody won so it was carried over to Aug. 18.

There was no Men’s Club event scheduled last Sunday because of the mixed tournament.
