Only the brave play golf in the rain

Wowser! That was quite the rain we had the afternoon of Tuesday, May 31. Debbie Rainer, Donna Salle and I stood under cover at the Golf Course and when 4 p.m. rolled around (that is our usual tee time) we left our clubs in our cars and headed into the club house for supper. And we weren’t the only ones. Instead of a lovely game of golf we spent a most enjoyable time browsing the clothing racks, trying on clothes, giggling, laughing, (maybe a bit of gossiping) and enjoying a delicious supper. Certainly not our usual Ladies Night but a most enjoyable one nonetheless.

Once all the hardy golfers – those not afraid of melting – were finished their rounds we handed out prizes. To be perfectly honest you could tell who had golfed in the rain and who had golfed when it was dry by their gross scores (and some of them were ‘gross’).

Flight 1 low gross was won by Theresa Young with a score of 42. Theresa also picked up prizes from Munro’s Clothing (long drive in 2), Cindy Leibel Real Estate (long putt), Quality Contractors (KP in 2) and the birdie pot. Louise Lodge won low net in Flight 1 as well as picking up the Little Fort Subway prize for a long putt. Babes Shanko was the only golfer in Flight 2 so she won low gross and low net and a prize from Brian and Brenda Carl for a KP. Her score was 52. Trish Thompson won low gross for Flight 3 as well as a KP prize from Salle Ranch. Anita Hill won low net for Flight 3 with a 66 (47.5). In Flight 4 low gross went to Betty Foote (62) and second low gross went to Rose Seymour (64). Linda Ransome won prizes for long drive in 2 (Sam’s Pizza) and a long drive (Armour Mountain Office), Kathy Cooper for long drive in 2 (Station House Restaurant), Judi Klontz for a KP (Stamer Logging), Rose Seymour for a long drive (Barriere Motor Inn), and Marian Wallace for the least putts (15).

The final foursome to head out were much braver than us older ladies (Donna and Debbie won’t like that comment) all picked up a prize for their bravery. Emma Schilling had a KP (Campbell & Co). Kate Schilling had a KP in 2 (EBL Ventures). Kayla Burian (Barriere Timber Mart) had a long putt. Jamie Mosdell had the most putts (28).

To top my evening off I arrived home to find that the sump pump at the bottom of our driveway had bought the farm so Wednesday morning I picked up a new one at Barriere Timber Mart. The gift certificate that I won last week helped with the cost. Thank you Shawn and Susie.

The Weather Channel is showing that next Tuesday should be a little better. Sure hope we see you there.
