The spring was cool and came late. The summer was beautiful. Golfing was great and the company was totally fantastic. Tuesday of last week 48 ladies came out to put Ladies Golf Night to bed for the winter. And I don’t know about the rest of the ladies but I had a simply wonderful time. It is so enjoyable to spend an evening with good friends – golfing, visiting, laughing, eating. It is sad to see it come to the end for this year but I so look forward to starting again next spring.
On Saturday, Sept. 7 we crowned our Club Champions. The low gross winner was Carol Hindle who won the crown with a score of 91. Susan Mitchell tied her but lost to Carol by retro. Audrey Rilcoe had one of her best games ever to pick up the title of low net. Trudy Scarlett, Evelyn Lucas, Debbie Pearce, Debbie Rainer, Carol Hindle, Susan Mitchell, and Abby Bates won pin prizes and the rest of us just had a fantastic time.
There were prizes galore on Tuesday night as well. The usual “suspects” took home prizes provided by our marvelous sponsors but no one left empty handed. There was a gift for everyone thanks to the marvelous job that Deb Rainer does with the shopping. Final flight winners were Flight one low gross Carol Hindle and low net Donna Salle. Flight two low gross went to Susan Newberry and the low net went to Debbie Rainer. Emma Allen won top prize for Flight three. Donna Salle and Debbie Pearce split the deuce pot and Linda Ransome took home the birdie pot.
Hole prize winners were Linda Ransome (Barriere A & W and The Look Boutique), Tanya Desjarlais (Barriere Irly Building), Dorothy Warman (Barriere Massage), Ilk Marais (Bodi Mekanix and Bondar Forest Planning), Carol Hindle (Country Store Antiques), Darlene Nickull (Crystlee’s Hair Design), Donna Salle (Barb and Carman Smith), Joan Streadwick (Carl’s Market Garden), Donna Salle (Estylo Hair Design), Trudy Scarlett (Knight’s Inn and Pottery by Ramona), Kathy Matthews (AG Foods, Rainer Custom Cutting and Shais Design), Debbie Pearce (Carol Patton, CGA and Station House Restaurant), Fiona Clare(Ron Wallace Trucking), Sharon Spooner (Stamer Logging), Kim Law (Val Bella Studio) and Doreen Landry (Avril’s Garden). Thank-you’s were also sent out to Alpine Meadows Resort, Barriere Auto Parts and Bob Stirling for our hole in one prizes, Star Journal for running our weekly column, the ladies in the kitchen for their fantastic meals and Chinook Cove Golf for door prizes and fantastic hospitality.
We closed the evening with an incredibely quick meeting. Debbie Rainer, captain and Leslie Stirling, secretary-treasurer were returned to office by acclamation. Susan Mitchell, representing Chinook Cove Golf made presentations to the two and the ladies present showed their approval with a standing ovation. It was quite evident by the smiles on their faces that both Debbie and Leslie were thrilled with the attention.
So that’s all, folks. Have a great winter. Let me be the first to wish you a Merry Christmas and we will see you next spring.
