Thunderin’ golf

Alberni ladies golf keeps going though the storm.

Tuesday was quite a day on the Alberni Golf Course for the ladies’ golf groups. We got called off the course for thunder and lightning. After an hour and a half delay, back out we went.

The nine- hole ladies missed all the excitement of the storm: they were already finished and having coffee and muffins when the storm hit.

For the nine-hole ladies low handicap group Claudia Romaniuk won low gross, Marilyn Merwin won low net.

There was a three-way tie for the lowest putts between Katy Lekich, Lee Anne Van Lent and Kath Stolth.

In the high handicap group, Lorraine Wilson won low gross, Betty Adair won low net and Diane Hoadley had the low putts.

Pars were had by Kelly Gauthier, Romaniuk, and Stolth.

In the 18-hole ladies group, Carol Bouchard won low gross with 87.

There was a tie between Carol Hastings and Katie Cyr for low net with 69.

In the KP challenge Sandra Simpson won on number 1 and Shannon Haggard won on number 10.

The special prize was won by Bouchard.
