45 ladies turnout for season opener at Chinook Cove Golf

By Leslie Stirling

WOW! What else can I say?

Forty-five ladies – yes, count them – 45 ladies turned out Tuesday, April 27, for our first Ladies’ Night of the season at Chinook Cove Golf. I was excited to see some new names on the score sheet. Because of COVID-19 restrictions I wasn’t able to actually see their faces but it warmed the cockles of my heart to know they were there.

I must congratulate Debbie Rainer and the businesses of Barriere for the wonderful array of prizes (gift certificates and cash) that were available to be won. Debbie does all the running around and asking. The fine Barriere businesses say yes when she asks. And if you are asking, no I didn’t win anything.

The low gross and low net winners in Flight 1 were Kelly McNabney with a score of 40 and Louise Lodge with a net of 32 (42). Flight 2 low gross went to Ilke Marais (47) while Deb Rainer took the low net with a 49 (34). Stamer Logging sponsored Flight 3 and prizes went to Lorie Chambers (low gross – 49) and Deb Winiski (low net – 54/33). Brian and Brenda Carl donated the low gross prizes for Flight 4 with Mary Van Sickle scoring a 51 and Rose Seymour scoring a 54.

Pot prizes were won by Kelly McNabney (birdie), Betty Baillie (chip in) and Susan Bondar (birdie that was also a chip in). There are a total of 22 pins split between the four flights. Here is who won what.

For making long drives Donna Salle, Debbie Legaree, Deb Winiski and Kim Van Sickle won prizes from AG Foods, Armour Mountain Office Supplies, Barriere Motor Inn and Barriere Timber Mart. Long putts earned prizes for Marion Wallace (Rainer Custom Cutting), Terry Blaeser (Sam’s Pizza), Val Williams (Station House Restaurant), Betty Foote (Ainsley Gullage of Sun Life), and Brenda Carl (Thompson Valley Awards). KP moolah went to Kelly McNabney (Cindy Leibel of Westwin Realty), Debbie Rainer (MJB Lawyers), Marie Hakes (Salle Ranch), Louise Lodge (Carman and Barb Smith), and Val Williams (Campbell & Company). KP in 2 prizes were won by Lois McInnis (EBL Ventures), Louise Lodge (HUB International) and Jessica Thompson (Quality Contractors). Kelly McNabney won the KP in 3 prize on Hole 8 from T & T Liquidation. The Most/Least Putt prizes are sponsored anonymously. Leanna Layton won by retro for using her putter only 14 times while Kim Van Sickle won the dubious honour of most putts with 32. Kim, just remember…a prize is a prize!

Of course folks could still dine on the patio after their round but we could not hold the prize pass out gathering because of provincial restrictions. We hope this is just a temporary thing as some of us love the opportunity to tease each other, tell jokes and make the ladies laugh. We are looking forward to another 20 ladies nights and sure hope we see you there.
