Spring in swing at Alberni Golf

Those marry madcaps from Alberi Golf are back for another season of fun, sun, links and hijinks.

It’s still early in the season, but for an open day we had a good  turnout on Sunday.

The closest to the pin winners were Bill Barrett on No, 2, the Charity closest to the pin on No. 4 was won by Kyle Luchinski who pocketed $34, on No. 13 it was Steve White and Sam Parhar took the prize on No. 17.

Low gross for the day, shooting a 74 was Tyler Ruel, great game Tyler.

There were two low nets awarded, one by Cliff O’laney and the other was Don MacGowan both shooting 71.

In the skins competition, Handi Cap 0-13 were won by Bill Barrett, Ken Fong, Bruce MacDonald, Preban Rasmussen, Tyler Ruel and Sam Parhar. Handi Cap 14 and over were won by Bob Matlock, Cliff O’laney, Bob Vandermolen and Steve Evans.

There will be a carry over on holes No. five, seven, nine, 10,12,15 and 16, on the low side.

Also a carry over on the high side on holes No. one, six, nine, 11,12,14 and 15.

The Tim Hortons ‘Partner with a Pro’ will be held this April 13. You will be using a Pro that is playing in the Masters this weekend as your partner. When you come into the clubhouse on Sunday morning you will pay your $10 then choose a number out of a hat and the corresponding Pro will be your partner.  Your net score and his score added together is where you finish.

The usual Charity closest to the pin as well as the other closest to the pin.
