I put on my long jeans and took two jackets with me when I left home on Tuesday afternoon Sept. 1, and headed to the golf course. Well, Mother Nature certainly surprised me by providing a lovely warm sunny two hours for my golf game. And while the weather was wonderful my game was not. My driver seems to be misbehaving. No, I don’t mean Debbie. I do the driving. No, I mean that big club that is supposed to make my ball fly a long way down the fairway. I shall have to give it a good talking to before I take it out to play again.
Some of the 43 ladies present did have good games. Flight 1 winners were Janice Advent with a 42 (low gross) and Susan Bondar with a 47 (low net of 34.5). In Flight 2 Carol Willox took low gross with a score of 50 and Evelyn Lucas scored a 53 (36.5) to win low net. Jessica Thompson seems to improve every week. She scored a 47 to win low gross in Flight 3 while Anita Hill scored a 50 (31) to win low net. Lois McInnis headed up Flight 4 with a 61 and Rose Seymour was close on her heels with a 62. Flight 1 and 2 were sponsored by the Carls (Brian and Brenda) and ELB Ventures. Five ladies used 15 strokes on the putting green so we drew for the Least Putts prize which went to Betty Foote. Most Putts prize went to Delena Carl with 27. Many of the regular high putters were pleased to not have their putting mentioned (isn’t that correct, Doreen).
The Birdie pot was split five ways with Janice Advent, Lorrie Chambers and Ilke Marais each getting a shared and Susan Bondar picking up double the amount for two birdies. Marie Hakes kept the Chip In pot all to herself while the Deuce pot went unclaimed.
KP pins were won by Janice Advent (Westwin Realty/Cindy Leibel), Evelyn Lucas (MJB Lawyers), Marie Hakes (Salle Ranch), Lois McInnis (Stamer Logging), Susan Bondar (the Smiths) and Doreen Landry (Campbell & Co.). KP in 2 winners were Karen Peterson (HUB International) and Anita Hill (Quality Contractors). KP in 3 prizes went to Susan Bondar (T & T Liquidation) and Ilke Marais (Gift ‘n Gab). The winners of Long Drive were Doreen Landry (Munro’s Clothing Co. & Armour Mountain Office), Lois McInnis (Rainer Custom Cutting) and Jan Advent (Barriere Motor Inn). People placing putts perfectly were Deb Legaree (Sam’s Pizza), Barb Smith (Thompson Valley Awards), Marla Muldoon (AG Foods) and Jess Thompson (Barriere Timber Mart). Val Aylward was the most Accurate of us all and took the prize from Station House Restaurant.
Our annual Club Championship will be held on Sunday, Sept. 13. It is an 18 hole tournament and my only hope is that I survive. The cost per lady is $35 which covers dinner and prizes. Tee times will be announced.
Just two more Ladies’ Nights to go. Sure hope to see you at the course.
