Captain Debbie Rainer deserted me and it is only week two! She and hubby were off to some convention this week but she will be back next week. Thanks to Donna Salle and Marion Wallace for helping me with the paperwork and prize hand out.
It was an exciting day for Carol Hindle who golfed her best game EVER…scoring a fantastic 39. She picked up a number of prizes: low gross for Flight 1 (Hub International), long drive (Barriere A & W), KP in 2 (Rainer Custom Cutting), least putts – 13 (Interior Savings Credit Union). She shared the birdie pot with Susan Mitchell and Leslie Stirling.
Fiona Clare had a good first outing (46) winning the low net for Flight 1 and picking up the Barriere Timber Mart prize for a long drive on Hole 1. Low gross for Flight 2 sponsored by Campbell & Co. went to Linda Ransome (50) and Leslie Stirling won low net (52). The 46, 50 and 52 are scores – not ages.
Stamer Logging sponsored Flight 3 with first place going to Marie Hakes (52) and Wanda Amos (55).
Pin placement prizes were distributed as follows: Leslie Stirling – long putt (AG Foods); Barb Smith – long putt (Armour Mountain Office Services; Evelyn Lucas – long drive in 2 (Barriere Massage) and KP (Carl’s Market Garden); Wanda Amos – long drive in 2 (Crystlee’s Hair Design; Deb Legaree – long putt (Country Store Antiques); Joanne Lyle – long putt (Estylo Hair Design); Donna Salle – KP (Bondar Forest Planning); Betty Baillie – long putt (Knights Inn) and KP (Ron Wallace Trucking); Vreny Kempter – long putt (Pottery by Ramona); Susan Newberry – KP (EBL Ventures); Audrey Rilcoe – long putt (Sam’s Pizza); Chris LeCerf – long drive (Station House Restaurant); Marie Hakes – long drive (Val Della Studio) and Sue Paulhus – most putts (Interior Savings Credit Union).
A large number of ladies including yours truly drove their balls into the gully on Hole 7 and received condolence balls and tees from Barb and Carman Smith. I jokingly said if folks keep doing that Debbie Rainer will have to go out and find an additional sponsor.
A big thank you to all our other sponsors that don’t get mentioned in every column – Barriere Auto Parts, Bob Stirling, Alpine Meadows Resort, Chinook Cove Golf and the Star/Journal.
This year the Ladies Golf Night is having a “Ringer Board”. You must sign up and pay a fee to take part. Only games played as Tuesday Ladies Night are eligible. We are using the first round played as the base score. When a lady improves her score on a hole she marks the new score in pencil below the first round. Each time a score is improved she erases the pencilled score and marks in the new lower score. At the end of the season we will add up the “Ringer” round. The last round counted will be the September 1st round. The prize money will be split in two: one prize will be for the lowest “Ringer” score and the other prize will be for the most points improved from the original score. Contact Debbie or Leslie for more (or clearer) information.
May 19 will be a four club night. Our first Fun Night, Christmas in July will be held on July 14. Golf for Cancer is scheduled for August 18. Fun, food and friends are every Tuesday. Hope to see you at the golf course soon.
