Rhodes pinned again

Gayle Rhodes' consistent play was a winning strategy at the Alberni Golf Club ladies' 18-hole competition.

Slow and steady won the game for Gayle Rhodes during Alberni Golf Club ladies’ 18-hole competition last week. Kathy White faced Rhodes for the challenge pin, but Rhodes was too steady and kept the pin.

Pat Nicklin will challenge Rhodes next week.

Other 18-hole results included:

18 hole ladies

Low gross went to Janice Cross for the second time in two weeks. Way to go, Janice.

Low net went to Gayle Rhodes with a 72.

In the ball sweep, golfers were able to take their three worst holes off their score.   Janice Cross won the gross and Rhodes won the net.

The ladies also had their qualifying session for the CTC tournament this week. The first two teams to make it were: Janice Cross, Lowana Johnson and Gayle Rhodes for the first team and Carol Bouchard, Claudia Romainuk and Kathy White for the second team.

There are two more teams that will probably get into the tournament, as Alberni is hosting it.

Nine hole ladies

A Division — Marta Williamson took low gross and low putts.

B Division — Julie Swaney took low gross honours and had the lowest putts, while Lorraine Wilson recorded the low net this week.

Swaney also had a par on No. 13.

At the interclub at Qualicum on May 15,  Kathy Toms had the longest drive of the day.

Marta Williamson had the low gross of the Alberni group.

Marie Swain had the low putts and low net of the Alberni group.  She also tied for the low putts overall.
