The saying goes “Men (in this case ladies) plan and God laughs”. Thirty-nine ladies headed out for a round of golf on Tuesday June 28, but only 21 finished their round.
The other 18 got thoroughly drenched and settled for a delicious supper, some prizes and an excellent evening of fun and friends. We had a number of birthdays to celebrate so of course that meant cake!
Low gross and net prizes were picked up by some of the ladies that hit the golf course early in the day. In Flight 1 Carol Hindle scored 45 to win low gross and Trudy Forsythe scored 46 to win low net, In Flight 2 Audrey Rilcoe picked up low gross with a score of 53 and Betty Baillie won the low net with a score of 54. Vreny Kempter won low gross for Flight 3.
Susan Mitchell won the birdie pot with a birdie on Hole 9. Babes Shanko not only finished her round but she took the least number of putts (15) to do so. Sue Paulhus picked up the most putts prize from Interior Savings Credit Union using a total of 29 putts.
Double prize winners were Trudy Forsythe and Catharine Phillips. Trudy had a long drive on Hole 1 (AG Foods) and another on Hole 3 (Barriere Timber Mart). Catharine had a KP on Hole 4 (EBL Ventures) and landed closest to the tree on Hole 7 (Pottery by Ramona). Cathy Theriault (one of the birthday girls) had a long putt on Hole 1 to win the Armour Mountain Office Services. The Barriere A&W prize went to Darlene Nickull for her long putt on Hole 2. On Hole 3 long drives were made by Audrey Deveau (Flight 2 – Barriere Massage) and Wanda Amos (Flight 3 – Crystlee’s Hair Design). Hole 4 KPs went to Debbie Legaree (Bondar Forest Planning) and Leslie Stirling (Carl’s Market Garden). The KPs on Hole 6 went to Audrey Rilcoe (Ron Wallace Trucking) and JoAnne Lyle (Stamer Logging). Marla Muldoon had a long drive on Hole 5 (Country Store Antiques) and Doreen Landry also had one (Estylo Hair Design). Sue Paulhus had the short drive on Hole 5 (Knights Inn). On Hole 8 Carol Clark had a long drive (Rainer Custom Cutting), Susan Mitchell had a long putt (Sam’s Pizza) and Sarah Watts had a long putt (Station House Restaurant). Carol Hindle finished her round off with a long drive on Hole 9 (Val Bella Studio). Prizes from Carman and Barb Smith went to the ladies who drove their balls into the gully.
In preparation for our annual fundraising for cancer research the ladies picked up pledge sheets. If you would like to make a donation feel free to talk to any of our golfers.
If you are planning to golf in the Golf for Cancer night in August and would like a pledge sheet give me a shout at 250-672-5706.
Let’s make it our most successful year!
