Tuesday night golf leaves ladies well done

Hey what’s cooking – me! With temperatures that climbed into the 40s on Tuesday, June 29 , starting early in the day was the only way to golf on Ladies’ Night. My team has a standing tee time of 4 p.m., and we decided at noon that we just weren’t going to make it in the heat. The truth is that Debbie and I decided at noon, but the other two had already decided on Sunday that they weren’t going to golf in the heat.

Six brave ladies golfed early, and of course had the pleasure of picking up most of the prizes…except for one unfortunate lady who went home with nothing. I ran into her in Kamloops today and we commiserated with each other as the same thing happened to me a few weeks ago.

Karen Peterson scored a fantastic 45 (considering the heat) to win Low Gross in Flight 1. She also won the T & T Liquidation certificate for KP in 3 on Hole 1, the Rainer Custom Cutting certificate for a long putt on Hole 5 and the Station House Restaurant certificate for a long drive on Hole 9. Deb Legaree scored 52 to win Low Gross in Flight 2 and Babes Shanko took Low Net with a score of 61 (45). Betty Foote was the Low Gross winner in Flight 4 (69) and Sarah Watts won second Low Gross (73). Betty Foote won certificates from Armour Mountain Office, Barriere Timber Mart and Sam’s Pizza for a Long Drive On Hole 2, Accuracy shot on Hole 3 and a Long Drive on Hole 8. She had the dubious honour of taking home the most putts prize with 23 putts. Deb Legaree won the Least Putts prize with 15. Babes Shanko had a long putt on Hole 2 to take home the Barriere Motor Inn certificate. Sarah Watts had a KP on Hole 4 to win the Stamer Logging Prize; a long putt on Hole 9 to win the Sun Life Financials prize and drove her ball into the gully to win a prize from North Thompson Funeral Service.

Our first fun night of the season will be held on July 13. Here is a refresher on our Fun Night which is a four lady Texas Scramble. The theme is Hawaiian. We can take a maximum of 48 ladies. Ladies should arrive by 4:30 p.m. at the latest and the shotgun start will be at 4:45 p.m. Prices will be $50 for non-members, and $40 for members. I would suggest you sign up sooner than later. The course has limited carts, so please make sure when you sign up you let the course know how many carts you need . If you are riding single, they need to be aware of that. If you are sharing a cart, they need to know that as well.

I am certainly hoping the weather has cooled down slightly by our next Ladies night. In the meantime, please take care and stay cool. See you at the course.
