32 ladies weather the wind

Chinook Cove Ladies Golf Report - 32 ladies weather the wind

By Leslie Stirling

Week two; weatherman still not totally cooperating, but at least it isn’t raining.

Thirty-one ladies weathered the wind on Tuesday, Apr. 30,  to pick up the prizes.

Lindsay and Ashley had an interesting round.  On one hole they hit four trees and found 14 golf balls.

Wanda Amos had such an interesting encounter with a group of trees that she took a picture with her phone to show us that she wasn’t telling one of those golfer tales.

I had my best round of the season, but that wasn’t really too hard.  After all, I have only been out four times.  I really should apologize though to the ladies that I bad-mouthed for taking my name off the pins.  Sorry about that Fiona, Helen and Susan.  Congrats on your prizes.

We welcomed a new sponsor; Lexa Caterers has stepped forward to sponsor the low net and low gross for Flight #1.  The winners this week were Donna Salle, low gross with a score of 46 and Carol Willox, low net with a score of 51(37).

Carol Patton, CGA sponsored Flight #2 this week.  Low gross winner was Debbie Rainer with a score of 50 and low net winner was Fiona Clare with a score of 53(35.5).

Ron Wallace Trucking sponsored Flight #3 with first place going to Ilke Marais with a score of 55 and second place to Betty Baillie with a score of 57.  Fiona Clare had a birdie on Hole #7 to win the pot that had been carried forward from last week.

When it came to the hole prizes there were a number of multiple winners.  Ilke Marais won the plant from Avril’s Garden for long drive in 2 on hole 1; the Stamer Logging prize for KP on hole 4; and the Val Bella Studio prize for most puts.  Donna Salle her prizes from Barriere Massage (long drive on hole 2), Country Store Antiques (long drive on hole 3) and Crystlee’s Hair Design (long drive on hole 5).

Trudy Scarlett had a long putt on Hole 3 to win the Bodi Mekanix prize, and a long putt on hole 9 to win the Shais Design.

Three prizes went to Fiona Clare – Bondar Forest Planning for KP on hole 4, Estylo Hair Design for long putt on hole 5, and Our Little Secret for KP in 2 on hole 7.

I managed to get two prizes – Station House Restaurant for a long drive on hole 9 and AG Foods for least number of putts.

Single prizes went to Babes Shanko (Barriere A&W – long putt), Susan Newberry (Barriere Irly Building – long drive), Carol Willox (Barb and Carman Smith – KP), Sharon Spooner (Carl’s Market Garden – KP), Val Stamer (Knights Inn – long putt), Rose Seymour (North Thompson Funeral Service – Rest in Peace), Joan Streadwick (Pottery by Ramona – long drive), Deb Winiski (Rainer Custom Cutting – closest to the golfer), and Helen Fraser (The Look Boutique – long putt).

Next week Chinook Cove will be unveiling their new lineup of fashions during the evening of Ladies Day.  Book your tee times early so you are in off the course in time to see the new colours.  I am pretty sure that Bob will want me to take notes of any items I might want him to buy me for Mother’s Day.
