25 ladies braved the rain to enjoy Tuesday night golf last week at Chinook Cove

Ladies golf hosting Sponsor Appreciation Night and Fun Night June 19

By Leslie Stirling

Wow, what incredibly wet weather we had on Tuesday night, June 12,  but it really wasn’t unexpected.  After all, it was Ladies Night at the Golf Course.  What was a surprise was that 25 ladies braved the rain to take part.  I guess we just got tired of waiting for that bright sunny day.  Carol Hindle showed everyone that the weather couldn’t deter her.  A score of 44 earned her low gross for Flight 1 and two fine shots gave her the KP prizes for Hole 4 (Barb & Carman Smith) and Hole 6 (River Adeventure Co).  Sandy LeBourdais won the Flight 1 low net prize and the AG Foods prize for a long putt on Hole 8.  Flight 2 low gross went to Sunny LeBourdais with a score of 51 and Cori Walker picked up the low net.  Cori also walked away with the Estylo Hair Design prize for long drive on Hole 1 and the Shais Design prize for long drive in 2 on Hole 5.  Joan Streadwick scored 59 to win low gross for Flight 3 and also won the hidden score prize from Stamer Logging.

Flight 1 winners were Karen Peterson (long putt – Jul’R by Lynda), Deb Legaree (long drive in 2 – Rainer Custom Cutting), and Trudy Scarlett (long drive – Bodi Mekanix).  Flight 2 winners were Lynda Beddington (long putt – Our Little Secret Consignment), Chris LeCerf (KP – Carl’s Market Garden), and Susan Newberry (long putt – Barriere Irly Building).  Flight 3 winners were Helen Fraser (long putt – Crystlee’s Hair Design), Joanne Lyle (long drive – Knights Inn), and Sue Paulus (closest to the golfer – Shais Design), Barb Smith (rest in peace – North Thompson Funeral Services), Brenda Carl (long drive in 2 – Barriere A & W).  Evelyn Lucas and Carol Young won the hidden score prizes (Carol Patton, CGA and Ron Wallace Trucking).  Leslie Stirling (that’s right -me) won the Val-Bella Studio prize for a long putt on Hole 7.  Deb Winiski used the most putts to win th Bodi Mekanix prize and Audrey Rilcoe took the Country Store Antiques prize for least putts.  Audrey and Brenda Carl each used 16 putts but Audrey won the prize by “Retro”.

Next week is our first Fun Night and our Sponsor Appreciation Night.  If  you haven’t registered your team or booked your cart you should do so soon.  The game is a four person scramble with a shot-gun start at 5:30.  Ladies should try to be at the clubhouse between 5:00 and 5:15.  The theme is “Prom Night” so come dressed to the nines.
