Winning waltz for Alberni visitors

Life was good for the men’s club at the Alberni Golf Course on Sunday, as 80 men teed it up  in the MacDermotts Insurance Agency Waltz.

The weather was a little cool, but other than that it was a great morning for golf.

First place went to Gary Korven, and Bill Kriwokon playing with a couple of prospective men’s club members, Scott Payne and Dean Johnson. Congratulations, gentlemen, it’s good to see guests in on the prizes.

Runnerup was the foursome of Jim Proteau, Corry Nielson, Darrell Vanos and Matt       Mesic. In third place was the group of Steve Acland, Craig Acland, Livio Tedesco and Bob Matlock.

Fourth went to Fred Fredrickson, Al Wright, Glen Trask and Brian Douillard, Fifth spot went to Jerry White, Steve White Mickey Keeley and Gene Kimoto.

The final prize was awarded to Wayne Johnstone, Colin Hamilton, Denis Debolt and Preban Rasmussen.

In the ball sweep the low gross of 75 was shared by Preban Rasmussen, Jim Proteau, and Corry Nielson while Keith Gauthier won one ball for his 78. On the net side, for the third week in a row it was Livio Tedesco topping the field and taking home three balls for recording a net 67.

There was a three-way tie for second with Bill Morin, Cal Davies and Jim Rhodes all coming in with 71, while Pat McKay shot 72 to take home one ball.

Closest to the pin prizes were won by Mickey Keeley on No. 2, Jim Lawler pocketed $46 for the charity closest to the pin on No. 4, Lawler also had the closest to the pin for his second shot on No. 6, Al Wright on No. 13 and Bob Price on No. 17.

The long drive on No. 5 was won by Denis Debolt who received a gift certificate from The Westwind Pub. There were also two draws of $50 gift certificates donated by Smitty’s Restaurant and won by Stephen Forrest and Larry Tyler.

Next Sunday, May 8 is an open day with the optional blind partners taking place. This is a two-man competition but you won’t know who your partner is until you finish your round.

If you choose to go in this event, the cost is only $5, to be paid in the pro shop before heading out. Don’t forget the ball sweep, money pot and the charity closest to the pin.
