Golfing is just part of the fun

Chinook Cove Ladies Golf Report by Leslie Stirling - Golfing is just part of the fun

By Leslie Stirling

Forty-six ladies showed up to golf on Tuesday night of last week.  It was the same number the previous week but not all the same people.

Just imagine how full the course would be if we all showed up on the same night.  And you would be able to hear the laughter and noise all the way from Barriere.

We ladies do like to have a good time.  Sometimes my foursome is so busy chatting and laughing that we forget to golf.  It isn’t that we don’t take our golfing seriously – we just take our visiting more seriously.

Flight winners were Marla Muldoon (low gross Flight 1), Marion Wallace (low net Flight 1), Ilke Marais (low gross Flight 2), Susan Bondar (low net Flight 2) and Abbey Bates (low gross Flight 3).  Thanks to our Flight sponsors – Lexa Caterers and Carol Patton, CGA.  Ilke Marais won the deuce pot and Carol Hindle, Carol Willox, Marion Wallace and Leslie Stirling shared the birdie pot.

A few of the ladies had very successful rounds winning more than one prize.

Tanya Desjarlais picked up prizes from Station House Restaurant, AG Foods and Pottery by Ramona.  Her putting was the deciding factor which reminded me of that old saying “drive for show and putt for dough”. Ilke Marais won prizes from Val Bella Studio, Bondar Forest Planning and Estylo Hair Design.  Trudy Scarlett took two prizes – Shais Design and Barriere A & W.  Irene Beeton walked away with Our Little Secret certificate and the Stamer Logging prize.  Jeannie Webber picked up prizes from Ron Wallace Trucking and Country Store Antiques.

Ashley Salle had a long putt to win the Rainer Custom Cutting prize.  Abbey Bates had a long drive to win the Look Boutique prize.  Marg Anderson had a KP to win the Barb and Carman Smith prize.  Brittany Bobinski had a KP to win the Carl’s Market Garden prize.  Donna Salle took home the Avril’s Garden prize for a long drive in two.  Judy Lane scored a long putt to win the prize from Barriere Irly Building.  Rose Seymour had a long putt to win the Barriere Massage prize and Karen Peterson won the Bodi Mekanix prize for herlong putt.  Crystlee’s Hair Design prize went to Sharon Spooner for a long drive in two  Marion Wallace had a long drive on hole nine to win the Knights’ Inn certificate.

Next week will be my favourite night of the seaon – Christmas in July.

The Chinook Cove Golf kitchen staff put on a fantastic turkey dinner finished off with pumpkin tarts covered with whipped cream.  Yes, there is a Santa Claus.
