Ladies golf standing head

Chinook Cove Ladies golfed, gabbed, and had fun

By Leslie Stirling

We were back to normal (if there really is such a thing) on Tuesday night, Aug. 24. No smoke. No evacuation alert. Oops – it wasn’t normal. There was no Debbie. Big thank you to Donna Salle and Lois McInnis for filling the void.

Thirty-seven ladies turned out to golf and gab. Some took home prizes, and some of us just had fun.

MJB Lawyers sponsored Flight 1 with low gross winner Louise Lodge with a score of 44 and low net winner by retro Donna Salle with a score of 50 (38). Flight 2 was sponsored by Stamer Logging. Doreen Landry scored a 52 to win low gross and Georgia Wiltsie scored a 56 (27) to win low net. The Carls (Brian and Brenda) covered the prizes for Flight 3. Cathy Paul scored 48 to win low gross and Jess Thompson scored 51 (33) to win low net. Campbell & Co. sponsored Flight 4. Sarah Watts won low gross with a 59 and Betty Foote won second low gross with a 61.

The only pot winners were in Flight 1. Lynn Newhouse had a birdie and Louise Lodge had a birdie/chip in. Leanna Layton utilized her putter the least times (14) and Barb Smith gave her putter a good workout with 25. EBL Ventures assisted North Thompson Funeral Services with the prizes for driving your ball into the gully on Hole 7.

KPs in 3 won prizes for Marian Wallace (Barriere IDA/Munro’s) and Doreen Landry (Rainer Custom Cutting). KPs in 2 were made by Louise Lodge (HUB International) and Trish Thompson (Quality Contractors). KP prizes were picked up by Marian Wallace (Cindy Leibel of Westwin Realty), Mary VanSickle (Salle Ranch), and Theresa Young (Barb and Carman Smith). The remaining KPs weren’t won and that is why we had sponsors for low gross/net.

Just in case you were wondering. Just regular old long drives were made by Deb Winiski (Sam’s Pizza), Sarah Watts, Marian Wallace (Barriere Motor Inn)and Lois McInnis (Armour Mountain Office). Denise Howe was the most accurate golfer – at least on Hole 3 (T & T Liquidation). That leaves the putters and they were Theresa Young (Ainsley Gullage of Sun Life), Audrey Rilcoe (Thompson Valley Awards), Donna Salle (AG Foods) and Trish Thompson (Barriere Timber Mart).

It has been a while since I mentioned our hole in one sponsors – Alpine Meadows Resort, Barriere Auto Parts and Bob Stirling, local artist. So consider them mentioned (and thanked). We only have three Ladies Nights left so boogie on up to the course soon.
