I was mighty happy to get back out on the course on Aug. 9, after missing my round last week. Somehow my whole week felt out of kilter because I hadn’t played last Tuesday. The weather was lovely – not too hot, not too cool…like a Goldilocks bowl of porridge – just right. We sat out on the patio for dinner and dessert along with all that great laughter.
Marla Muldoon scored a fantastic 41 to win low gross for Flight 1 which is sponsored by Interior Savings Credit Union and got the least putt prize (Barriere Massage) because she only used her putter 13 times.
Donna Salle must have felt a bit like Cinderella as she took low gross with a score of 45.
Jeannie Webber played the part of Snow White and her seven prizes. Okay there weren’t seven but it sure felt like it. She scored low gross for Flight 2 with a 47 and picked up the pot of golf for her birdie on Hole 1.
Audrey Rilcoe scored a 51 to win low net in Flight2. Flight 3 winners were Babes Shanko (low gross – 53) and Joan Streadwick (low net – 56). Lindsay Arcand scored a 57 to win low gross in Flight 4 and was rewarded with the coveted Pottery by Ramona prize.
For the first time this year (I think) all the KP prizes were picked up. Winners were Donna Salle (Carl’s Market Garden), Leslie Stirling (Campbell & Co), Wanda Amos (EBL Ventures), Irene Beeton (HUB International), Trudy Forsythe (Ron Wallace Trucking), Jeannie Webber (Royal LePage/Cindy Leibel), Susan Bondar (Stamer Logging) and Lindsay Arcand (MJB Lawyers).
Sadly no one was able to deuce the hole so that pot continues to grow…just like Pinocchio’s nose. Evelyn Lucas, Lynda Fournier and Marie Hakes picked up golf balls courtesy of Carman and Barb Smith when their balls went in to the gully on Hole 7.
Long Drive winners were Doreen Landry (AG Foods), Darlene Nickull (Armour Mountain Office Supplies), Chris LeCerf (Barriere A&W), Debbie Rainer (Barriere Timber Mart & Estylo Hair Design), Donna Salle (Country Store Antiques), and Marie Hakes (Knight’s Inn). Babes Shanko had a KP in 2 on Hole 7 to win the Rainer Custom Cutting certificate.
Then there were the CLOSEST people. Brenda Carl was closest to the tree (Station House Restaurant) and Darlene Nickull was closest to the 150 marker (The Blue Jar Coffee Bar & Bistro). Ashley Salle had two long putts. Okay she may have had more than two but she did get two prizes (Sam’s Pizza and Val Bella Studio). Catherine Reim made the most use of a putter to win the Gift ‘n Gab certificate.
And now my last minute reminder. Aug. 23 is our annual Golf for Cancer. Sign up your foursome or find a lady golfer to pledge. For more information contact the golf course (250-672-0119), Debbie Rainer (250-672-9704) or Leslie Stirling (250-672-5706).
It is a fun night for us, but with a serious cause. Cancer certainly isn’t any fun for someone who has it. Help us help!
