Great evening of golf for 25 ladies at Chinook Cove Golf

Ladies Golf Night always fun for those who take to the greens just north of Barriere

By Debbie Rainer

Ladies Golf Captain

Another great evening of golf for 25 ladies, on Aug. 14.   I was missing my trusted treasurer Leslie and struggled through on my own. I did manage to leave a few brain cells on the golf course somewhere (if found please return).  Lucky for me Vicky Hoffer was able to fill in for Leslie. A few of the ladies had great games.

Marla Muldoon was the big winner taking home the Deuce pot of $159., low gross for flight 1 with a score of 43. She also took KP on #4 sponsored by Barb & Carman Smith, Long Drive on #5 sponsored by Country Store Antiques. Cori Walker also had a great game taking low gross in flight #2 with a score of 44, the bird pot of $25. and KP on #4 and #6 sponsored by Carl’s Market Garden and Ron Wallace Trucking. Her winning did not stop there, she also took KP in 2 on #7 sponsored by Jul’r by Lynda Enochsen and long drive on #2 sponsored by Barriere Irly Building. Low Net for flight #1 was Susan Newberry, and KP on #6 sponsored by The River Adventure Co. Low Gross for flight #3 went to Angie Rainer with a score of 51 and KP on #4 sponsored by Carol Patton, CGA. Long Drive sponsored by Ag Foods on #1 went to Joan Streadwick. Christine LeCerf scored the long Putt on #1 sponsored by Barriere A & W and long drive on #2 sponsored by Barriere Massage. Audry Rilcoe got her ball closest to the metal golfer sponsored by Bodi Mechanix. Carol Young took home the hidden score sponsored by Crystlee’s Hair Design. Long Putt on #5 sponsored by Estylo Hair Design won by Brenda Carl.

Evelyn Lucas hit the green for KP on #6 sponsored by Stamer Logging. Not one ball for flight three came to rest in peace, sponsored by North Thompson Funeral Services. I am sure that on the cancer fun night we will give out a few extra balls for the ones resting in peace. Teresa Warren had the long drive on #8 sponsored by the Knights Inn. Long Putt on #8 went to Shirley Ross, sponsored by Our Little Secret and Shirley also won the honour of low putts with 14 sponsored by Val-Bella Studio. Susan Bonder had the long Putt on #9 sponsored by Shais Design. Most Putts went to a new golfer to this area, Carol Willox with 27, sponsored by the Station House.

To date we still have all the hole in one prizes waiting to be won. The sponsors are Bob Stirling artist, Halamour Lake and Barriere Auto Parts.

Tuesday, Aug. 21, is our Annual Cancer fund raiser. Please join us for a fun evening of golf, dinner and raffles. All money raised will be sent in for Breast Cancer in memory of Bonnie CruzelleMyram.

The theme is pink and wigs. Hope to see you there. 5:30 shot gun, please call the golf course to book your team and carts.
