Golf, food, laughter, and friends


Wow!  The skies were a little dark on Aug. 9, but 40 ladies just knew the weather would be fine…and it was.  And most of the rowdy crowd stayed to have supper on the patio.  Fantastic food, loads of laughter and a giggle of good friends made for a great Ladies Night.

When it came to the final score Flight #1 winners were Trudy Scarlett (low gross) with a score of 46 and Deb Legaree (low net) with a score of 50.  Flight #2 winners were Mel Freeston (low gross) with a score of 49 and Susan Newberry (low net) by retro with a score of 53.  The Flight #3 low gross winner was Ang Rainer with a score of 47.

Two ladies, Susan Mitchell and Mel Freeston dominated the individual hole prizes.  Flight #1 hole prize winners were: Hole #1 long drive in 2 (Knight’s Inn) – Susan Mitchell, Hole #4 KP (Stamer Logging) – Pat Carr, Hole #5 long drive (Barriere Massage) – Susan Mitchell, Hole #6 KP (Carman and Barb Smith) – Susan Mitchell, Hole #7 KP in 2 (Star/Journal) – Lorretta Gammel, and Hole #9 long putt (Estylo Hair Design) – Pat Carr.  Flight #2 hole prize winners were: Hole #1 long drive in 2 (Barr K Treats) – Melanie Freeston, Hole #2 long drive in 2 (Barriere Irly Centre) – Melanie Freeston, Hole #4 KP (Royal LePage) – Susan Newberry, Hole #5 long drive (Country Store Antiques) – Melanie Freeston, and Hole #9 long putt (AG Foods) – Vicki Hoffer.  Flight #3 hole prize winners were: Hole #2 long putt (Station House Restaurant) – Joanne Lyle, Hole #3 long drive (Jul’re by Lynda) – Ang Rainer, Hole #4 KP (River Adventure Co.) – Betty Baillie, Hole #5 long drive (Rainer Custom Cutting) – Emma Allen, Hole #8 short drive (Val-Bella Studio) – Sherry Hughf, Hole #9 long putt (Bodi Mekanix) – Irene Beeton.

Some putters were hot and some were not.  Lorretta Gammel only used 14 putts to win the Barriere A&W prize while Sherry Hughf used almost twice as many to win the Ron Wallace Trucking prize.  The prize sponsored by Carl’s Market Garden was not won so was included in the door prizes.

REMINDER TO ALL – the Cancer Fundraiser date has been changed to August 30, 2011, so line up your team and book your spot soon.  We are always looking for donations (new items, please) for the prize table so if you have something you would like to donate call Helen Fraser, Bonnie Cruzelle-Myram, Debbie Rainer or me.  Cash donations to go towards Breast Cancer Research are also most welcome.  The theme for this year is “As pink as possible”.  It will be interesting to see what imaginative things arrive at the course that evening.
