It was “par for the course” for Alberni Valley golf sensation Christina Proteau during the West Coast Open last weekend—well, three strokes less than par, to be more accurate.

The biggest tournament of the year for the ladies took place on Sunday at Alberni Golf Course.

Proteau came in with the win for the seventh time shooting a light’s out game of 67.  This is the 58th anniversary of the West Coast Open.

The Low Net score of 66 was carded by Jill Braun from Nanaimo.

The play was a team of two, best ball, two ball.  Proteau with her partner, Jones topped the pack with their combined Low Gross score of 67…followed closely by the team of Stoffer & Dashkewytch carding a 70.

Team winners to 11th place were  Dobler/Doucett from Eaglecrest; Little/Laschuk; Morrow/Munro; Horle/Powers; Chang;Mitchell; Enquist/Campbell; Mitchell/McCusker; Krahn/Wilson; and Rands/Berry.

On the Low Net side the team of White and Cross took it with their combined score of 62; then Braun and Ross followed with their 63; Frankian and Brooks; Gauthier/Fowler; Nicklin/Bowerman; Free/Grubisich; Mucklov/Wilmer; Shear/Simpson; Douglas/Robertson; Cutting/Williams; Walker/McCrone.

The course was in great shape thanks to Steve and his crew.  The meal was delicious.  The prize table was loaded…and the weather co-operated…..what more could we ask?

Thanks to Gayle Rhodes and her crew, the very generous hole sponsors.

The ladies of the nine hole division the grounds crew, spotters and volunteers, the kitchen staff and the guys in the pro shop all must be thanked.

All in all, it was a great day.
