What a week I have had. I got hit by a miserable spring cold; sore throat, hacking cough. I am a bit of a wimp so really felt sorry for myself. But at least it didn’t hit me until after Ladies Night Golf. I was able to play my normal round along with 42 other ladies on May 3. The weather was good except for a few strong gusts of wind that just about blew me off the #1 Fairway.
It was an exciting night for Doreen Landry who scored her first Ladies Night birdie to take home the birdie pot. Flight winners were Carol Hindle (Flight 1 low gross), Trudy Forsythe (Flight 1 low net), Deb Legaree (Flight 2 low gross), Cathy Theriault (Flight 2 low net), Babes Shanko (Flight 3 low gross), Jean Webber (Flight 3 low net) and Myrna Dundas (Flight 4 low net). Flight Sponsors were Interior Savings Credit Union, Hub International and Stamer Logging.
Deb Rainer has once again done a marvelous job of lining up sponsors for our pin placements and the ladies do appreciate the support. Long drive in 2 prizes went to Babes Shanko (Armour Mountain Office Supplies), Susan Newberry (Barriere Timber Mart), Debbie Rainer (Barriere A & W) and an unnamed person won the Crystlee’s Hair Design certificate. My huge apologies for not writing down the name. Now I guess everyone knows that I am not perfect. Bob has known for years.
Long Putts earned prizes for Fiona Clare (Country Store Antiques), Myrna Dundas (Estylo Hair Design), Deb Legaree (Knight’s Inn), Deb Winiski (Pottery by Ramona), Babes Shanko (Station House Restaurant) and Brenda Carl (Blue Jar Coffee Bar & Bistro).
KPs (Closest to the pin on the Par 3s) went to Susan Newberry (Carl’s Market Garden), Ilke Marais (Campbell & Co.), Carol Willox (EBL Ventures), Donna Salle (Ron Wallace Trucking), Debbie Rainer (Royal LePage/Westwin Realtor Cindy Liebel), and Sharon Spooner (MJB Lawyers).
Carol Hindle had a KP in 2 on Hole 7 (Rainer Custom Cutting). Val Alyward came closest to the tree on the same hole (Sam’s Pizza). Brenda Oakland and Christina LeCerf had long drives on Hole 9 to win certificates from Val Bella Studio and AG Foods. Quite a number of ladies drove their balls into the gully on Hole 7 and were compensated with a ball and tees courtesy of Barb and Carman Smith of HM Ranches.
We have a number of other fine sponsors who don’t get recognized every week. Deb Rainer and I would like to thank Barriere Auto Parts, Alpine Meadow Resort and Bob Stirling (water colour painting) for providing hole in one prizes.
At the end of the year if the prizes haven’t been won they are distributed through door prizes. Chinook Cove Golf provides us with a door prize every week.
The Star/Journal graciously runs our weekly column. Our newest sponsor is Deb Loucks of Bob’s Barriere Glass who provided the signs for our new sponsors.
If you have wondered what all the laughter coming from the golf course on a Tuesday afternoon or evening is about you might like to come out and join us. Golfers of all abilities are most welcome.
