Ladies delighted with Tuesday golf at Chinook Cove

By Leslie Stirling

Perhaps the world has turned upside down.  Spring is late – very late!  Temperatures have been cool.  But the afternoon and evening of Tuesday, May 3, the weather was quite delightful – no rain to speak of; very little wind and occasionally a burst of sunshine.  The company was wonderful.  The conversation and laughter flowed freely.  We spent so much time talking that we almost forgot to golf.  But golf we did though yours truly did it very badly.  Two members of the group of 29 golfers celebrated birthdays, and cake was enjoyed by all.

Barb Kavanagh scored a 43 to win low gross for Flight #1 while Karen Peterson won low net.  In Flight #2 Audrey Rilcoe scored a 53 to win low gross and Freda Saunders won low net.  The Flight #3 low gross winner was Jen Amos.  Deuce Pot winners were Tanya Desjarlais and Carol Hindle while Barb Kavanagh scored a birdie on Hole #7 to pick up the Birdie Pot.  Hole #7 was not nearly as kind to a number of ladies who ended up in the gully but still got a small prize courtesy of North Thompson Funeral Services.

There are plenty of prizes to hand out for pin placements thanks to all our sponsors.  Erin Mitchell had a short drive on Hole #1 to win the Bodi Mekanix prize followed by a long drive in 2 on Hole #2 to win the Barr K gift certificate.   Bev Murphy had a long putt on Hole #3 to win the Knights Inn prize.  Carol Hindle had a long drive in 2 on Hole #1 to win the Star/Journal prize and took the Stamer Logging prize on Hole #4 for KP.  Freda Saunders’ driver was working well on Hole #2 and she won the Rainer Custom Cutting gift certificate for long drive in 2 for Flight #2.  Sandy Lebourdais won two prizes – KP on Hole #4 (River Adventure Co.) and long drive on Hole #5 (Barriere A & W).  Barb Kavanagh had the long drive on Hole #5 for Flight #1 and took home the Jul’Re by Lynda certificate.  Audrey Rilcoe not only had a great round but picked up prizes from Country Store Antiques and AG Foods for a long drive and a long putt.  Tanya Desjarlais had a KP on Hole #6 to win the Carman & Barb Smith prize.  The Val Bella certificate went to Trudy Scarlett for KP in 2 on Hole #7.  Long putts on Holes #8 and #9 earned prizes for Loretta Gammel (Estylo Hair Design), Sharon Spooner (Station House Restaurant) and Karen Peterson (Barriere Irly Building Supplies).  Many of us were in the running for most putts but Brenda Carl had the dubious honour of picking up the prize from Barriere Massage.  Tanya Desjarlais won the prize from Carl’s Market for least putts.  Prizes from Ron Wallace Trucking and Royal LePage were won so were added to the door prize table.

Debbie Rainer and I continued our Laurel and Hardy routine during the prize presentations to the delight of those present.  We had attempted to change the way prizes were chosen.  It didn’t work well last week so we tried a different approach this week.  It didn’t work any better but we did get lots of laughs.  Tune in to see how we do next week.
