First place winning in a chip-off with 63 went to the team of Hank Krahn, Glen Trask, Darren VanDyk and Kevin Carlton. Second place, also with 63, was the foursome of Bruce MacDonald, Damian Dodd, Phil Anker and Vic Carlton.

In third place, recording 65, was the team of Preben Rasmussen, Ron Clark, Ron Barker and Tylo Smith. Fourth spot was captured by Jacques Giovetti, Cal Davies, Jim Rhodes and Wolf Suhr. The final prize was awarded to Ken Fong, Brent Tall, Dave Mann and Al Wright.

The closest to the pins were won by Bob Vandermolen on No. 2, Lloyd Fairley on No. 4, Phil Anker on No. 13 and on No. 17 it was Mark Anderson.

Next Sunday, June 9 Port Boat House will be hosting a one day men’s club championship. There will be several gross prizes as well as net prizes. There will be an added bonus for the overall winner. It will be something to play for, gentlemen!
