9-hole division: A Division: Low Gross was scooped up by Marie Swain who also nabbed the Low net position. Lois Robinson came in with the lowest amount of putts for the day.
B Division: Low Gross was taken by Louise Berlinski who also took the Low net. June Parks came in with the Low Putts. The 9-hole division ladies welcomes a new member, Bea Stuyt who is also a newcomer to the Alberni Valley. Welcome, Bea!
The 9-hole division is always looking for more members to join up with them on Tuesday morning, 9 a.m. start and for the month of April it will be a drop-in format. Give Captain, Lorraine Wilson, a call if you are interested in joining them. You can contact her through the Pro Shop at 723-5422 Treasurer, Kathy Toms is collecting the $10 membership fee for the year and Marie Swain will be looking after the interclubs.
An interesting format this morning cooked up by Patsy Gauthier and Janice Cross. First part of the competition was the winner of the Low Gross score minus the putts and taken by Ilona McLeod. Ilona also tied for the Low Gross score of the morning with Leona Fowler, both carding a 90. The second winner was to take the total number of her putts off her Low Net score and that person was Leona Fowler…each of these ladies won a brand new ball for their efforts. Fowler was also the Low Net winner for today which didn’t win her a ball, only honours, but it looks like she will likely walk away with the Monthly Medal as well. Fourteen members turned out today which truly seemed like the first day of the golf season, due to the great weather. We played off the yellow tee blocks which puts us into equitable stroke competition with the men, so I’m told.
The course was in great shape in spite of all the inclement weather we’ve had to date. If you are a past member of the 18 hole division please let the Captain know if you will not be coming on any given Tuesday as she will soon be making up a draw rather than having the drop-in format. Call the Pro Shop at (250)713-5422 if you will not be coming out and they will pass it on.
We welcomed a new member to our division this morning. Julie Swaney enjoyed a round of 18 holes.
Welcome everyone…it’s great to be back.
