Ladies Golf has come to a close for the year

End of the 2012 season for the Chinook Cove Ladies Golfers

The 35 golfers put Ladies Night to bed for the winter.  The theme for the evening was a pajama party and most of those taking part showed up to golf in their pjs.  Some were clever enough to wear a toasty warm bath robe as well.  The temperatures did dip and a little rain did fall but oh, we did have a good time.

The folks in the kitchen cooked up a fantastic menu and fixed up the clubhouse so that we could all fit inside to eat when we came off the course.  Thanks to Joan Streadwick and Carol Hindle for the yummy desserts.  You had to be there to believe how loud the laughter and conversation was.  We sure did have a good time.  And there were tons of prizes to pass out.  Nobody went home empty handed – everybody took home a door prize.

All the fun aside, it was still a regular golf night.  We were all limited to 4 clubs.  Flight 1 winners were Debbie Pearce, low gross with a score of 42 and Trudy Scarlett, low net.  Flight 2 winners were Carol Willox, low gross with a score of 50 and Vicki Hoffer, low net.  Low gross winner for Flight 3 was Kim Law with a score of 61.  Trudy Scarlett, Marian Wallace and Debbie Pearce shared the birdie pot.  The deuce pot was not claimed for the third week and the proceeds went to Barb Smith in a draw.

Multiple pin winners were Donna Salle (long drive in 2 – Country Store Antiques and KP – Barb and Carman Smith), Vicki Hoffer (long drive – Estylo Hair Design and KP – Ron Wallace Trucking), Sharon Spooner (short drive – Rainer Custom Cutting and long putt – Station House Restaurant), and Leslie Stirling (long drive in 2 – Bodi Mekanix and long putt – Our Little Secret).  Single winners were Joanne Lyle (long putt – Crystlee’s Hair Design), Deb Legaree (long putt – Jul’r by Lynda Enochsen), Deb Rainer (KP – Carl’s Market Garden), Kim Law (KP – Carol Patton, CGA), Tanya Desjarlais (long drive – Knight’s Inn), Joan Streadwick (KP – Stamer Logging), Marion Wallace (KP in 2 – Shais Design), Audrey Rilcoe (long putt – Val-Bella Studio), Susan Newberry (long drive – AG Foods), Audrey Deveau (long drive in 2 – Barriere A & W), Brittany Bobinski (most putts – Barriere Irly Building) and Shirley Ross (least putts – Barriere Massage). A special thanks to all our regular sponsors and to our Hole In One sponsors, Barriere Auto Parts, Alpine Meadows Resort and local artist Bob Stirling.  It has been a great year and we appreciate your support. Other important supporters are the folks at Chinook Cove Golf and the Star Journal.

We finished the evening with our annual meeting.  Captain Debbie and Treasurer Leslie were re-elected by acclamation.  I don’t know if it was because people think we do a good job or because nobody else wants the positions.  Either way, we are happy to continue and look forward to seeing all you ladies again in the spring.
