Ladies play from the white tees

Ladies Night Golf Report fron Chinook Cove Golf Resort

By Leslie Stirling

A stormy looking morning sky turned partly cloudy in the afternoon of June 10, and 42 ladies took advantage of the weather to enjoy a round of golf.  We finished the evening with supper on the patio and the prize presentation.  This week we played from the white tees which can be quite stressful for some of us.  For me the easiest way to de-stress is to make sure I have  a fun group to golf with.  Val Williams joined us this week and we had a fantastic time.

Our Flight sponsors this week were Thompson Valley Awards (Flight 1), Bondar Forest Planning (Flight 2) and Carl’s Market Garden (Flight 3).  Prizes from EBL Ventures and Wallace Trucking weren’t claimed and were distributed as door prizes.  The flight winners were Susan Mitchell (low gross Flight 1) with a stunning score of 44; Susan Newberry (low net Flight 1); Carol Willox (low gross Flight 2) with a score of 58; Leslie Stirling (low net Flight 2); Val Williams (low gross Flight 3) with a score of 62 and Joan Streadwick (second low gross Flight 3).  There were no birdies or deuces scored which wasn’t surprising considering the additional length of each hole.  Pots will be carried forward to next week.

Hole prizes were shared around with only one double winner.  Betty Foote had a long putt on Hole 5 to win the Station House Restaurant prize and a KP on Hole 6 to win the Stamer Logging prize.  Prizes for long putts went to Dorothy Warman (Country Store Antiques), Joan Streadwick (Knights Inn), Shirley Ross (Shais Design), and Barb Smith (Crystlee’s Hair Design).  Prizes for long drives went to Carol Willox (Pottery by Ramona), Christina LeCerf (Rainer Custom Cutting), Marnie Pfiefer (Val Bella Studio), Val Williams (Barriere A&W), Carol Hindle (Barriere Timber Mart), and Betty Baillie (Barriere Massage).  Trudy Scarlett had a KP on Hole 4 to win the Campbell & Company prize.  Vreny Kempter was closest to the golfer to win the Estylo Hair Design prize.  Debbie Rainer had the KP in 2 on Hole 7 to win the AG Foods prize.  Lynda Fournier had a short drive on Hole 8 to win the Armour Mtn Office Services prize.  The Interior Savings Credit Union putt prize was split between Sue Paulhus (most putts – 32) and Susan Mitchell (least putts – 13).

Wednesday morning hubbie and I went for a round of golf.  Once again I didn’t get any birdies, eagles or deuces but I did score a bride and groom on Hole 2.  Congratulations to Gary Forsythe and Trudy Scarlett (the new Mrs. Forsythe).  Truly a round to remember.
