Ladies golf getting ready for Christmas in July

Barriere, golf

Submitted by Leslie Stirling

Beautiful hot sunny weather greeted 41 ladies as they took to the links on Tuesday night.  Bet those Thursday Men are jealous.  The weather was so nice I let me legs out for the first time this year.  A light breeze kept the mosquitoes away.  Although there was no birthday cake this week, Deb Rainer did provide a tray of her scrumptious brownies.

Carol Hindle had a fantastic score of 43 to win low gross for Flight #1 and Moyna Laing won low net.  In Flight #2 Debbie Rainer had her best game of the season with a score of 48 to win low gross and Audrey Rilcoe won low net.  Michelle Funk scored a 52 to win low gross in Flight #3.  In case anyone is wondering, Flight #3 doesn’t have a low net because that is the flight of ladies without handicaps.  Handicaps – for you non-golfers – that is a totally different long explanation and the paper doesn’t give me enough space.

The bird pot was split between Tanya Desjarlais, Carol Hindle and Deb Legaree.   Tanya got half the pot because she scored two birdies.  The deuce pot was carried forward for another week.

The hole prizes were spread around nicely.  Jen Amos won the Val-Bella Studio certificate for a long putt on #1.  Deb Rainer picked up two prizes – Estylo Hair Design for a long drive on #1 and the Royal LePage (Karina Scott) prize for KP on #4.  Karen Peterson had a long putt on #2 to win the AG Foods certificate.    Sharon Spooner’s long drive on #2 earned her the Bodi Mekanix prize.  Audrey Rilcoe took home two certificates – Barriere A & W for long putt on #3 and Barr K Treats for a long drive on #5.  Babes Shanko had a KP on Hole #4 to win the Stamer Logging prize.  Debbie Winiski’s KP on #4 earned her the River Adventure prize.  Carol Hindle had a long drive on #5 to win the Knights Inn certificate.  Betty Baillie’s long drive on the same hole earned her the Station House Restaurant Certificate.  KPs on #6 went to Pat Carr (Carman & Barb Smith), Trudy Scarlett (Ron Wallace Trucking) and Michelle Funk (Carl’s Market Garden).   Moyna Laing had long putts on both #8 and #9 so walked away with certificates from Jul’re by Lynda and Barriere Massage.  Other long putts on #9 were made by Trudy Scarlett (Country Store Antiques) and Brittany Bobinski (Rainer Custom Cutting).  Tanya Desjarlais had the least putts (North Thompson Star Journal and Sue Paulhus had the most putts (Barriere Irly Centre).  All the ladies (and there were a lot) who drove their ball into the gully on #7 received a new ball along with tees and ball markers courtesy of North Thompson Funeral Home.

Our Christmas in July night is fast approaching.  The date is July 26 and it begins with a 5:30 shot gun start with a full Turkey dinner following the golf.  It is a four person scramble.  This format lends itself nicely to new golfers.  Book your team and carts soon.
