Humming on the golf course

Don’t know why there’s no sun up in the sky − stormy weather. If you are old enough you should now be humming this old Etta James song and perhaps cursing me a bit. On Tuesday, May 25, the afternoon was a little like that though occasionally the sun shone down upon us and we didn’t get too wet. Only 21 ladies braved the threatening skies and took to the course. Once again only two of the 21 didn’t win a prize but at least this week it wasn’t me. Sorry about that Val and Brenda.

Now before I get to talking about this week’s prizes I must admit to you all that I neglected to mention the pot prizes from last week. It was a big week for Barb Smith as she was the first Chip In of the season for Flight 4 and Deb Rainer had a Deuce in Flight 2. Both ladies won good sized pots and deserved to be noted for their feats. Barb Smith continued her winning ways this week with a long Drive (Rainer Custom Cutting), a long putt (Barriere Timber Mart) and second low gross in Flight 4. Deb Rainer chose to visit sisters instead of golfing. We missed her. I had my first winning of the season (low net Flight 2) to show you that I am more than a pretty face.

The other flight winners were Susan Newberry (low gross Flight 1), Donna Salle (low net Flight 1), Doreen Landry (low gross Flight 2), Jean Webber (low gross Flight 3), Anita Hill (low net Flight 3) and Lois McInnis (low gross Flight 4). This week’s Flight sponsors were MJB Lawyers, The Carls (Brian and Brenda), Campbell & Co. and Quality Contractors.

Long drive sponsors were Barriere IDA/Munro’s Clothing, Ainsley Gullage of Sun Life, T & T Liquidation, Thompson Valley Awards, and AG Foods. The winners were Babes Shanko, Catharine Phillips, Deb Winiski and Rose Seymour. Putts (long, most and least) were sponsored by Sam’s Pizza, Station House Restaurant, Armour Mountain Office Supplies, Barriere Motor Inn, Barriere Timber Mart and one of our lady golfers who chooses to remain anonymous. The putters were Wanda Amos, Donna Salle, Rose Seymour, Darlene Nickull, Susan Newberry (least by retro) and Betty Foote (most). Three ladies drove into the gully on Hole 7 and can pick up their new balls from North Thompson Funeral Services at the club house. KP sponsors this week were Cindy Leibel of Westwin Realty, Salle Ranch, Stamer Logging, and the Smiths (Carman and Barb) with Louise Lodge, Anita Hill, Lois McInnis, and Donna Salle making the required shots. KP in 2 prizes from EBL Ventures and HUB International went to Wanda Amos and Catharine Phillips.

My hope for next week comes from a song by John Denver. Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy. Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry. Sunshine on the water looks so lovely. Sunshine almost always makes me high. Now you can decide which song you prefer to hum for the rest of your day. See you at the course.
