Weather dampens ladies golf in Alberni

The ladies were game bu the weather was lame in Alberni for ladies golf.

Fresh new golf season…fresh snow on the mountains, fresh wind and rain in your face. What could be more bracing?

It was no small wonder that there were so few ladies out on the first day for Alberni Golf Club’s ladies’ club. Only four golfers made it around. They were wet but smiling when they finished their game.

There was no ball sweep due to the lack of golfers but there are many fresh changes to that format too.

Many opportunities are being arranged for the ladies’ club’s benefit: workshops and golfing clinics.Details will follow next week.

The nine-hole ladies are not quite ready to start their organized games yet and will be playing on a drop-in basis, as will the 18-hole golfers.

Drop in by 9 a.m. each Tuesday and go out for a game with whomever gets there.

This will be the start time and method only for the month of April.

After that the shotgun draw that we’re used to will resume.

Next Tuesday, April 3 we will be playing for that coveted Monthly Medal.

There will be a meeting following the game if it’s not raining.

If it’s raining then the meeting will commence at 9 a.m.

It is important that all 18-hole lady golfers attend this meeting as a huge amount of information will be given out by our captain, Teresa Cutting, and her delegates.

Hope to see more of you out next week—let’s hope for less invigorating weather!
