Lady golfers enjoy dessert after dinner at Chinook Cove Golf

Forty-four ladies turned out for a beautiful spring afternoon/evening of golf

By Leslie Stirling

Three ladies who were all a bit hard of hearing were out golfing together.   One remarked to the others, “Windy isn’t it?”.  “No” the second lady replied, “It’s Thursday”.  And the third lady chimed in, “So am I.  Let’s have a glass of wine”.

Now this story is a fantasy except for the glass of wine.  Many of the ladies finish their golf off with a lovely supper, a glass of wine and dessert.  Last Tuesday, May 19, the providers of dessert were Carol Hindle and Joan Streadwick.  Thank you ladies!

Forty-four ladies turned out for a beautiful spring afternoon/evening of golf.  It was Four Club Night – one of my favourites.  Each golfer picks three clubs plus a putter and leaves the rest of her clubs in the car.  Some had good games.  Some won prizes.  We all did a lot of laughing.  A few of us were satisfied to just have a good time with good friends.

Flight Sponsors are Chad from Hub International (Flight 1), Campbell & Co (Flight 2) and Ron Wallace Trucking (Flight 3).  Donna Salle scored a 44 to take home the low gross for Flight 1 as well as the Interior Savings Credit Union prize for least putts (a phenomenal 12).  Christine LeCerf scored a 48 to win low net.  In Flight 2 Vicki Hoffer scored a 50 to win low gross while Carol Willox had a 53 to win low net.  Val Williams scored 60 to win low gross in Flight 3.  Val Alyward won the most honest golfer and putter prizes with a score of 101.  Donna Salle and Carol Hindle split the deuce pot while Vicki Hoffer kept the birdie pot all to herself.

Drum roll please….and the pin placement prizes go to… Fiona Clare for a long putt (AG Foods), Vicki Hoffer for two long putts (Armour Mountain Office Services and Station House Restaurant), Barb Smith for a long putt (Barriere A&W), Carol Hindle for two long drives and a KP (Barriere Timber Mart, Val Della Studio and Bondar Forest Planning), Linda Ransome for a long drive (Barriere Massage), Val Williams for two long drives and one short one (Crystlee’s Hair Design, Rainer Custom Cutting and Knights Inn), Marie Hakes for a KP and a long drive (Carl’s Market Garden and Estylo Hair Design), Kelly Simons for a long drive (Country Store Antiques), Catharine Phillips for a KP (EBL Ventures), Jeannie Webber for being closest to the tree (Pottery by Ramona), and Susan Mitchell for a long putt (Sam’s Pizza).  Many ladies won golf balls on hole 7’s Rest In Peace.   So many ladies have been sending their balls into the gully that we had to use a second sponsor to cover the cost.  Thanks to sponsors Carman and Barb Smith and Stamer Logging.

Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of taking a Short Game clinic facilitated by Susan Mitchell and I do think my pitching and putting has improved.

This coming Saturday I am going to take in her Long Game  clinic.  For years I have left my drivers at home because they are a lot like my hubby… they don’t always do what I want them to.

I am hoping that Susan will help get me back on the right track.  If that happens I just might send Bob to see her.

Bob and I went for a round of golf this morning so now I am heading upstairs for a snooze.

You know you’re getting older if it takes you longer to rest than it did to get tired.
