Rasmussen captures gross

The Alberni Golf Course’s men’s club had another great day on the golf course despite lower numbers due to Mothers’ Day.

The Alberni Golf Course’s men’s club had another great day on the golf course despite lower numbers due to Mothers’ Day. I hope all you ladies had a good Mothers’ Day.

Congratulations to Preben Rasmussen, who captured the low gross of the day by shooting an impressive 71. Second low gross was Cory Neilson, firing a 76.

On the net side it was Gerry Fagan taking top honours with a smooth 65, (rah, rah, rah) followed by Bill Bjornson with a 67.

Closest to the pins were recorded by Steve Acland on No. 2, Bill Bjornson on No. 4, Wayne Johnstone on No. 13 and on No. 17 it was Clark Crowe.

Rasmussen walked away with $42 for the only birdie on No. 4; the other par 3’s were halved.

Next week is another open day with the usual money pots and closest to the pins up for grabs. Also there will be prizes awarded for the best gross and best nets, the amount depending on the  number of players on each side.

Next Sunday there will be a gross and net skins competition. Be sure to make all your birdies on the sheet provided in the pro shop, or you may miss out on some cash.

Please sign up in the pro shop in your own group or as a single and Brian will find you a game. Tee times start at 7 a.m.

One final reminder, gentlemen: be sure to enter your score into the computer before you play your next round. Even if you only play nine holes you must enter that nine-hole score.
