Shootout at Toomstone event in Alberni

This is more like golfing weather: clear skies and warm temperatures. It also meant a good turnout for the optional Toomstone event.

All the competitors played from the blue tees which made the course a little tougher: especially for us short ball hitters. There was a tie for first between Wayne Cheveldave and Colin Hamilton. Coming in third place was Dennis Debolt and rounding out the prizes in fourth position was none other than Gerry Fagan (rah, rah, rah!).

In the ball sweep, Cheveldave had the best of the day, shooting a gross score of 80 to take home three balls. Dennis Debolt shot an 81, winning two balls.

On the net side of the day it was Cal Davies winning three balls for his 72, Jack Sparks and Bob Matlock both coming in with 73 to take home two balls each.

Closest to the pins were won by Bill Morin on No. 2; Fred Fredrickson for the charity closest to the pin on No. 4 (for $21) and Chazz Lazorko for his second shot on No. 6. No one was on No. 13: it is a tough hole from the blue tees.

Bill Barrett was closest on No. 17.

This Sunday, June 12 is the Port Boat House red, white and blue competition. The way it goes is as follows: each hole you hit from a different tee marker. Just so there won’t be any confusion the scorecards will be marked.

It’s every man for himself in this event, just make up your own foursomes and register in the pro shop. You can also register as a single and Bruce or Brian will put you in a group.

The shotgun start is at 8 a.m. Don’t forget to enter the ball sweep, money pot and the charity closest to the pin.

Guests are always welcome at the Alberni Golf Club.
