“Raindrops keep falling on my head”…but not on Tuesday nights when we ladies go golfing. Mother Nature has been extremely kind to us this year. I don’t think we have been rained out once. (Bob says I am going to have to stop with the song references. It is driving him crazy – my singing, not the songs)
Ilke Marais had a fantastic game to score a 43 and win the low gross for Flight 1. Susan Newberry picked up the low net with a score of 32.5 to win the Thompson Valley Awards prize. Carl’s Market Garden sponsored Flight 2 winners Sandy LeBourdais (low gross score of 45) and Betty Baillie (low net score of 31). Ron Wallace Trucking sponsored Flight 3 and the low gross prize went to Gloria McLean with a score of 59. Angie Smith won second low gross with a score of 60.
Sometimes golf confuses me. I did not have a particularly good game but I had a few good shots. I was rewarded for those few shots with a long drive in 2 (Armour Mtn Office Services), and two long putts (Crystlee’s Hair Design and Val Bella Studio). Carol Hindle, on the other hand, had more than a few good shots. She had a long putt on Hole 2 (Barriere Timber Mart), a KP on Hole 4 (Campbell & Company), a KP on Hole 6 (EBL Ventures). She also used the least number of putts (Interior Savings Credit Union) and picked up the deuce pot.
Two regulars, Rose Seymour and Carol Willox brought three sisters and their mom out for the afternoon and we all enjoyed meeting them. They also managed to pick up some of the prizes. Angie Smith won the Barriere Massage prize for a long drive in 2 and the AG Food prize for long drive. Dorothy Horvath took home the Interior Savings Credit Union prize for most putts.
Sunny LeBourdais had a KP on Hole 4 (Bondar Forest Planning) and a KP in 2 on Hole 7 (Knights Inn). Trudy Forsythe had a long drive in 2 on Hole 5 (Country Store Antiques) and a long putt on Hole 9 (Station House Restaurant). Marla Muldoon had a long drive on Hole 8 (Rainer Custom Cutting) and scored a birdie to win that pot.
Susan Mitchell won the Barriere A&W prize for closest to the golfer. Joan Streadwick had a long drive on Hole 5 to win the Estylo Hair Design. Darlene Nickull won the Ramona Pottery glass for a long putt on Hole 5. Betty Baillie had a KP on Hole 6 (Stamer Logging). Evelyn Lucas had a long putt on Hole 8 (Still Waters Registered Massage Therapist).
By the time you have read this we will have held our annual Cancer Fundraiser. I am sure that I had an excellent time and hope everyone else did as well. Aug. 26th we are back to regular golf. We only have a few weeks of golf left so if you haven’t had a chance to join us you should do so soon.
