The day was cloudy with a light breeze, but the temperature was warm and the company was great.  Ten teams of four (called a foursome) spent the afternoon of Saturday, May 11, taking part in the Chinook Cove Golf Course Season Opener.

Golfers came from Clearwater, the Cariboo and other points.  The Texas scramble format made for a fun social event for all levels of golfers.

Husband Bob and I had the joy of playing with Jill and Bob Hayward, and although the four of us didn’t golf as well as the rest of the field, we did have a great time.  And we got a prize for coming in last!

The foursome of Larry Dobson, Mike Titley, Susan and Kenner Mitchell finished with a score of 67 to pick up the first place prize money.  There were nine other prizes for pin placements.  Christina LeCerf had a great drive on Hole 1 to win the Ladie’s Long Drive.  Mike Titley had a killer drive on Hole 3 to win the Men’s Long Drive.  Bob Hayward was a great sport and picked up the Short Drive prize on Hole 3.  The Men’s Long Putt prize on Hole 2 went to Dean Meger and Susan Mitchell sunk a nice one on Hole #5 to win the Ladie’s Long Putt.  Ladies KPs went to Lois Van Damme on Hole 4 and Evelyn Lucas on Hole 6.  Men’s KPs went to Ron Thurston on Hole 4 and Dennis Thompson on Hole 6.

A delicious supper on the patio completed the day and was enjoyed by all.  Prize presentation finished with door prizes, and no one went home empty handed.  Special thanks to the staff at Chinook Cove who always treat us to fantastic hospitality.

And my thanks to Bob, Jill and Bob for making the day so enjoyable.
