Good weather and good golf

Chinook Cove Ladies Golf report by Leslie Stirling - Good weather and good golf

By Leslie Stirling

Another Tuesday – another beautiful evening – another Ladies Golf night.  We have been so lucky this year with very few evenings spoiled by rain.  On July 30, 35 ladies showed up to enjoy the weekly gathering, and a number had the pleasure of taking home some prizes.  There was even a little something for those of us who don’t have our best rounds, and 11 ladies took home door prizes.

Carol Hindle had a hot night.  She scored a 41 to win low gross for Flight 1; picked up the birdie pot and won three hole prizes (KP on Hole 4 from Barb and Carman Smith, a long putt on Hole 5 from Barriere Irly Building and a long drive on Hole 9 from Knights’ Inn).  Donna Salle won low net for Flight 1 and KP on Hole 6 (Carol Patton, CGA).  Our Flight 1 was sponsored by Lexa Caterers and Flight 2 was sponsored by Stamer Logging.  Truday Scarlett scored 48 to win low gross for Flight 2 and Ilke Marais took home the low net.  She also had a long drive in 2 on Hole 2 to win the Val Bella Studio prize and a long drive on Hole 9 to win the Our Little Secret certificate.  Helen Fraser won low gross for Flight 3.  Deb Rainer picked up a couple of prizes – Barriere Massage (long putt on Hole 5) and Country Store Antiques (KP in 2 on Hole 7).

Irene Beeton had a good night as well.  She took home four prizes including long drive on Hole 1 (The Look Boutique), long drive in 2 on Hole 5 (Bodi Mekanix), long putt on Hole 9 (Pottery by Ramona) nd most putts (Rainer Custom Cutting).  Tanya Desjarlais took prizes from AG Foods (long drive in 2) and Barriere A&W (long drive).  KP prizes went to Carol Young (Bondar Forest Planning), Doreen Landry (Carl’s Market Garden), and Leslie Stirling (Ron Wallace’s Trucking).  Single prizes went to Cori Walker (long putt on Hole 1 – Station House Restaurant), Dorothy Warman (long putt on Hole 3 – Avril’s Garden), Darlene Nickull (short drive on Hole 8 – Crystlee’s Hair Design),  and Shirley Ross (Closest to the Golfer on Hole 8 – Estylo Hair Design).  Susan Bondar used only 14 putts to pick up the prize from Shais Design.

I must admit I get a bit confused with the new paper deadline so I think I will take the opportunity to remind you all about signing up for the golf for Cancer night on Aug. 20.  I am sure you won’t want to miss it.  Pledge sheets are available and you can stop and pick one up from me once the Fall Fair office opens on Aug. 6.  We’ll be located in the Barriere Cable office next door to Armour Mountain Bookkeeping.
