West Coast Open awaits lady golfers at Alberni Golf Club.

Up, up and away!

That was the feeling of most of the lady golfers at Tuesday’s game.

Everyone was hoping for a good game as a prelude to the West Coast Open which will be held this Sunday at the Alberni Golf Club.

Up, up and away!

That was the feeling of most of the lady golfers at Tuesday’s game.

Everyone was hoping for a good game as a prelude to the West Coast Open which will be held this Sunday at the Alberni Golf Club.

(There is lots of room for spectators too, so come on out and support your favorite player.)

Ilona McLeod shot the low gross score of the morning with an 82. She was close as well with her low net score of 68. Let’s hope these scores reflect your game on Sunday, ladies!

B.J. Harper has the coveted Challenge Pin for yet another week. She won it last week, was challenged by Gwyn Bowen but hung onto it and is tightening her grip against Sandra Simpson, who will play her for it on July 5. Stand by for an exciting finish on this one.

The ball sweep was another format yet again. Who thinks these things up?  “Strike three” was the name of the game where the total of your three worst holes were added together then this was subtracted from your overall score.

No surprise here that it was won by Ilona McLeod and Leona Fowler.

Qualifying for the Master’s Cup took place on Tuesday as well. The list of winners is located on the bulletin board in the ladies lounge.  Players should check to see who they are pitted against and try to get their games done before July 5.

If that is not possible then contact Gayle Rhodes and she will arrange your play with your opponent on July 5 at our regular golf session.

No organized golf next Tuesday due to the B.C. Women’s Amateur Tournament which we are hosting.

Nine-hole Division

A Division:  Kathy Toms and Sharon Hillman shared the honors bringing in their low gross scores.  There were ties as well for the low net takers—Pat Dahlquist and Kathy Toms. Good game, Kathy!

Sharon Hillman also scooped the low putts so I imagine her game was pretty consistent as well.

B Division:  All singletons here: Yvette Pedersen with the low gross; June Parks with the low net; and Yvette Pedersen rising to the top with the lowest amount of putts.
