Great golf on July 1 at Chinook Cove for the ladies

A lovely round of golf on a sunny warm Canada Day in the North Thompson

By Leslie Stirling

Here comes the sun, doo, doo, doo, doo, here comes the sun and I say “It’s alright”.

This week this Beatle ditty came to mind as we played a lovely round of golf on a sunny warm Canada Day.  No mosquitos, no rain…it just doesn’t get much better.

Some of our regulars must have been out celebrating with their families so we were a few less than our usual number.

Marla Muldoon had a fantastic game scoring a wonderful 39 and picked up the low gross for Flight 1.  She had three (count them, three) birdies and a deuce and needed a wheelbarrow to haul home her prizes.  Other prizes that Marla earned were long drive on Hole 5 (AG Foods), KP on Hole 6 (EBL Ventures), long putt on Hole 9 (Country Store Antiques) and least putts (13 – Interior Savings Credit Union).

Deb Rainer scored a 47 to win the low net for Flight 1 which is sponsored by Thompson Valley Awards.  This week Flight 2 was sponsored by Ron Wallace Trucking with low gross going to Barbes Shanko with a score of 48 and low net going to Deb Winiski with a score of 52.  Jen Amos scored a 60 to win low gross for Flight 3.

When it came to pin prizes Irene Beeton, Deb Winiski and Jen Amos were multiple winners.  Irene came closest to the golfer on Hole 1 (Rainer Custom Cutting), had a long drive in 2 on Hole 2 (Station House Restaurant) and sunk a long putt on Hole 5 (Barriere A&W).  Deb had a long putt on Hole 2 to win the Val Bella Studio certificate and a KP on Hole 6 to win the Stamer Logging prize.  Jen Amos had a KP on Hole 4 to win the prize sponsored by her mom (Carl’s Market Garden) and a long drive on Hole 8 (Barriere Massage).

Single prize winners were many.  Chris LeCerf had a long drive in 2 on Hole 1 to win the Knights Inn certificate.  The Shais Design certificate was won by Carol Willox for a long drive on Hole 2.  KPs on Hole 4 were won by Donna Salle (Campbell & Co) and Betty Baillie (Bondar Forest Planning).  Aundrey Rilcoe won the Armour Moutain Office Services prize with a long putt.  Betty Foote had a KP in 2 on Hole 7 to win the Barriere Timber Mart certificate.

Thanks to Barb and Carman Smith, six ladies took home a new ball…to replace the ones they drove into the gully.

On Hole 8 Debbie Pearce had a long putt to win the Crystlee’s Hair Design prize.  On Hole 9 Evelyn Lucas took the Estylo Hair Design certificate with a long drive and Hazel Cross picked up the coveted cup from Pottery by Ramona for a long putt.  Brittany

Bobinski had the dubious honour of most putts used to win the Interior Savings Credit Union prize.  Newlywed Trudy Forsythe picked up a share of the birdie pot.  We finished the evening with a celebratory cake honouring birthdays…Debbie Rainer’s and Canada’s.  I have been advised that Debbie is not as old as Canada.
