Considering the weather lately the golf course was in good condition for the men’s shamble held on Sunday, March 20.

Considering the weather lately the golf course was in good condition for the men’s shamble held on Sunday, March 20.

After a week of rain delays the weather was cloudy, and fortunately the rain held off. Fifty-three players teed it up for what proved to be a fun day for all participants.

Two teams tied for first place with a total of 124. In typical golf course fashion it was decided with the flip of the coin.

Emerging the winner was the team on Glen Barton, Hans Galesloot, Ron Banks and Brian Rands.

In the No. 2 spot was the foursome of Fred Fredrickson, Mike Savard, Chris Owen and Matt Mesic. Third place went to the group of Cliff O’Laney, Cal Davies, Jack Sparks and Tyler Ibsen,

Fourth place was Preben Rasmussen, Colin Hamilton, Wayne Johnstone and Masami Hirayama.

The final prize went to Ted Stewart, Ned Stewart, Vic Carlton and Wolf Suhr.

The closest to the pins were recorded by Cliff O’Laney on No. 2, Jacques Giovetti on No. 4, Jim Proteau on number 13,  and Ted Stewart on No. 17.

By the time you read this writeup the men’s club will be in full swing.

Don’t forget, every Sunday morning until the fall there will be some fun times and even golfing at the Alberni Golf Course.
