The heat is on at Hollies Golf

Columnist Pat Little writes about all things great and small in his Hollies Golf column.

Big time golfer

Leave your ego at the bar

There’s a “C-note” here You won’t shoot par!

Twenty-seven’s the number

If you think you have game,

See you on Men’s Night

But probably not again.

 

There’s the challenge.

We’ll begin from the week since it was last shot.

Many of tried and many have failed.  One score of 27 shot on Men’s Night two years ago by John Fader on Sept. 23, 2010 still stands.

The incentive is also for women.

It has been nearly seven years since multiple Canadian Women’s amateur champion and good friend of the Hollies,’ Mary Anne Hayward of Toronto, shot 29 during the day our course was rated for the British Columbia Golf Association.

Very few had game this past Men’s Night and the scores showed.

Maybe it was the heat, or maybe the slow fivesome, but whatever it was , the scores were high.

The Tim Horton’s low gross was three over par 33 by Barry Ensor, a stroke ahead of Preban Rasmussen.

Robin Woodward took the Canadian Tire low net with a four under par score of 26, two better than James Williams.

Joining Ensor, Rasmussen, and Woodward as K.P. winners were Scott Fuller, Larry Gavelin, Wayne Johnstone, Jason Pley of Pley Roofing and Rob Longeuay of First Glass.

There have been no changes in the Remax player of the year so far with Big “O”Tires Denis Debolt leading the way along with both Ron Lange and Barry Ensor tied for the lead in the Howard Johnson’s ringerboard competition.
