Falling for Golf

Chinook Cove Ladies Golf report on golfing in early fall

A beautiful fall evening greeted 27 ladies for our second last ladies night of the season.  While the sun was up and shining it was lovely and warm but it didn’t take long to cool off once the sun dipped below the horizon.  It was nice to play a leisurely round of golf after the hustle and bustle of the Fall Fair.

Carol Hindle continued her domination of ladies’ night by winning low gross for Flight 1 with a score of 40.  She also had a birdie on Hole #1 to take home the birdie pot for the second week in a row.  Other prizes going to Carol were the Country Store Antique prize for a long drive in 2 on Hole #2 and the Barb and Carman Smith prize for KP on Hole #4.

Susan Newberry also had a good night.  She had low net for Flight 1; a long putt on Hole #5 (Jul’R by Lynda Enochsen) and a KP on Hole #6 (River Adventure Co).  Deb Rainer was the low gross winner for Flight 2 with a score of 46 and Vicki Hoffer took the low net prize.  Deb also picked up the Knights Inn certificate for a long drive in 2 on Hole #5.  Ilka Marais won the low net for Flight 3 with a score of 60.  Audrey Rilcoe took home the Estylo Hair Design prize fir a long putt on Hole #3 and the Val-Bella Studio prize for a long putt on Hole #9.  Joanne Lyle took home two prizes – Crystlee’s Hair Design for a long putt on Hole #2 and Our Little Secret Consignment certificate for another long putt on Hole #5.  Sharon Spooner was the winner of three prizes – Stamer Logging prize for KP on Hole #6; AG Foods certificate for a long drive in 2 on Hole #9 and North Thompson Funeral Services for hitting the gully on Hole # 7.  Helen Fraser joined Sharon in the gully and also took home a gift from North Thompson Funeral Services.  She also had a long putt on Hole #8 to win the gift certificate from Shais Design.  Trudy Scarlett had the least putts to win the Barriere Irly Building prize and a long drive on Hole #9 to win the Station House Restaurant.

Single winners were:  Brenda Carl (Barriere Massage – short drive), Angie Rainer (Bodi Mekanix – long drive), Leslie Stirling (KP – Carl’s Market Garden), Evelyn Lucas (KP – Carol Patton, CGA), Sarah Watts (KP – Ron Wallace Trucking), Joan Streakwick (Rainer Custom Cutting – long putt), and Dorothy Warman (Barriere A & W – most putts).

Next week is the last outing of the season.  It is four club night and yes, one of the clubs should be your putter.  It is also “Jammies Night” so come out in your favourite PJs. I am planning on pulling out my winter warm ones to help with the cool evening.  Expect to see lots of prizes as we finish off the season in style.  Please book your regular tee times as this is NOT a shot gun start.

Lady members planning to take part in the Club Championship on Saturday, Sept. 15 should register with the Clubhouse.
