Ladies Golf has the cure

Chinook Cove Ladies Golf Report by Leslie Stirling

In 1958 Eddie Cochran wrote “There ain’t no cure for the summertime blues”.  Well he was wrong.  My cure is a round of golf on a Tuesday evening with two or three good friends followed by supper on the patio with 30 or 40 of your closest friends.  On Tuesday, July 8, 34 other ladies felt the same way as I did.  When all the whooping and hollering was done some folks even got to take home prizes.

Thompson Valley Awards sponsored Flight 1 winners were Carol Hindle (low gross) with a score of 43 and Debbie Rainer (low net) with a score of 48.  This week Flight 2 was sponsored by Stamer Logging.  Audrey Rilcoe scored 49 to win low gross and Carol Willox scored 50 to win low net.  Irene Beeton had a great round to pick up the low gross for Flight 3 with a score of 55.  Four ladies, Shirley Ross, Tanya Desjarlais, Marla Muldoon and Marian Wallace scored birdies and split the pot.  The keeper of the cash (me) was pleased that it was an  even split.

Besides her birdie, Tanya Desjarlais had a long putt on Hole 9 (Estylo Hair Design) and won the Interior Savings prize for least putts (12).  Joan Streadwick had a long putt on Hole 3 to win the AG Foods certificate and another long putt on Hole 9 to win the Pottery by Ramona prize.  Sue Paulhus picked up to putting prizes – one prize on Hole 2 from Val Bella Studio and one prize on Hole 9 from Knights Inn.  Marian Wallace had a KP on Hole 6 (EBL Ventures) and a KP in 2 on Hole 7 (Barriere Massage).  Linda Ransome took home the Crystlee’s Hair Design certificate for hitting Closest to the 150 yard marker and the Barriere A & W certificate for a long drive on Hole 5.  Those winning single prizes were:  Barb Morris with a long drive (Rainer Custom Cutting), Audrey Rilcoe for being Closest to the Golfer (Shais Designs), Catherine Phillips with a long putt (Station House Restaurant), Deb Legaree with a long putt (Armour Mtn Services), Doreen Landry with a long drive (Barriere Timber Mart), Trudy Forsythe with a long drive (Country Store Antiques), and Joanne Lyle with the most putts (Interior Savings Credit Union).  KPs went to Karen Peterson (Campbell & Co), Leslie Stirling (Bondar Forest Planning), Irene Beeton Carl’s Market Garden and Val Williams (Ron Wallace Trucking).

July 22 is our annual Christmas in July  four person Texas scramble.  Supper is a traditional Christmas turkey dinner with the all the fixings including pumpkin pie.  Phone the club house to sign up your team and book your cart.  If you don’t have a team we will try to find one for you.

So if you are suffering from the “Summertime Blues” come join us on ladies night.  We would love to see you.
