Ladies back on course

Chinook Cove Ladies Golf Report - Ladies back on course

By Leslie Stirling

Halleluah!  Golf season is back and spring arrived (at least for me) on the same day.  I admit that for the week leading up to Tuesday, Apr. 23, I was concerned that it wouldn’t be warm enough and the night would be a “no show”.  Of course, I always have to go…rain or shine.  Debbie makes me.

And wow!  Who would have thought we would have such a huge turnout?  There were a total of 46 ladies that took to the fairways.  I think almost all of our regulars showed up.  And they were ready for the fun, friends and food.  I don’t know how Chinook Cove managed to fit us all into the club house for supper but they did.

Once the dining and visiting were finished we got down to handing out the prizes.  And there were lots of prizes to give out.  Flight One winners picked up prizes from Carol Patton, CGA.

Donna Salle scored a smoking 44 to win low gross and Tanya Desjarlais had a 46 to win low net.  Deb Legaree won low gross for Flight Two with a 48 and Evelyn Lucas won the low net with a 52.

Flight Three winner was Betty Baillie with a score of 50.

Hole prize winners were Irene Beaton (short drive – AG Foods), Susan Bondar (long putt – Avril’s Garden), Debbie Legaree (long drive – Barriere A&W), Larissa Hadley (long putt – Barriere Irly Building), Susan Bondar (long drive – Barriere Massage), Kim Law (long putt – Bodi Mekanix), Ilke Marais (KP – Barb and Carman Smith), Trudy Scarlett (KP – Bondar Forest Planning), Carol Hindle (KP – Carl’s Market Garden), Susan Bondar (short Drive – Crystlee’s Hair Design), Leslie Stirling (short drive – Estylo Hair Design), Trudy Scarlett (KP – Ron Wallace Trucking), Betty Baillie (KP – Stamer Logging), Cori Walker (KP in 2 – Knights Inn), Jeannie Webber (long putt – Our Little Secret), Lois Keller (closest to the golfer – Pottery by Romana), Ilke Marais (long putt – Rainer Custom Cutting), Trudy Scarlett (long drive – Shais Design), Susan Newberry (long putt – Station House Restaurant), Rose Seymour (most putts – The Look Boutique, Carol Hindle (least putts – Val Bella Studio) and seven ladies who drove into the gully (Rest in Peace – North Thompson Funeral Home).

A big thanks goes out to all those wonderful sponsors including our Hole In One sponsors (Bob Stirling, Barriere Auto Parts and Alpine Meadow Resort), our advertising sponsor (Star/Journal) and our door prize sponsor (Chinook Cove Golf).

Now I heard a rumor the other day and I want to let folks know the real scoop.  Some ladies thought that golfing was like curling – that you had to sign up at the beginning of the year and come out for every Tuesday Ladies Night.  And it just isn’t so.

You are welcome to come out for as many or as few Tuesdays as you like.

You don’t need a foursome (team).  Check with the club house and we will try to line you up with some other ladies.  You don’t need to be a fantastic golfer either.  Hey, they let me golf!  So hopefully we will see you next week.
