May 16 at Chinook Cove Golf

Ladies Night Golf at Chinook Cove Golf Resort in the North Thompson

By Leslie Stirling

One of my mother’s favourite sayings was “the road to Hades (this is a GP rated newspaper) is paved with good intentions”.

Wikipedia describes the saying this way.  “One meaning of the phrase is that individuals may have the intention to undertake good actions but nevertheless fail to take action.  This inaction may be due to procrastination, laziness or some other subversive vice.   As such, the saying is an admonishment that a good intention is meaningless unless followed through.”

Well, it had been my intention to write my article on Wednesday mornings while Tuesday’s golf nights are fresh in my mind.  It is always my intention to get the article to Jill as quickly as I can.  But obviously I have a good sized road going with my good intentions because here it is, minutes from my deadline and I am just now writing it.

Flight 1 (Interior Savings Credit Union) winners were Donna Salle (low gross – 49) and Marion Wallace (low net).  Flight 2 (Armour Mountain Office Supplies) winners were Chris LeCerf (low gross – 47) and Deb Rainer (low net).  Flight 3 (HUB International) winners were Jeannie Webber (low gross – 53) and Doreen Landry (low net).  Flight 4 (Stamer Logging) winners were Sandy Hultman (low gross – 61) and Deb Winiski (2nd low gross – 62)  Kelly Van Genne (one of our Kamloops regulars) took home the ginormous deuce pot.  And yes, I did find that word in the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary.

Long putts earned prizes for Deb Winiski (Country Store Antiques and Estylo Hair Design), Sandy Hultman (Knights Inn) and Susan Bondar (AG Foods).

Longs drives earned prizes for Susan Newberry (Pottery By Ramona), Ilke Marais (Rainer Custom Cutting and Barriere Timber Mart), Wanda Amos (Sam’s Pizza), Sandy Hultman (Station House Restaurant), and Brenda Oakland (Barriere A&W).  KP prizes were picked up by Karen Peterson (Carl’s Market Garden), Kelly Van Genne (Campbell & Co.), Doreen Landry (EBL Ventures), Marion Wallace (Ron Wallace Trucking) and Ilke Marais (Royal LePage/Westwin Realty/Cindy Leibel).  Evelyn Lucas had a short drive on Hole 5 to win the Blue Jar Coffee Bar & Bistro while Ilke Marais came closest to the 150 marker on Hole 9 to win the Barriere Massage certificate.

KP in 2 on Hole 7 means I will be able to stop by and visit Val Enochsen at Val Bella Studio.  The usual suspects (and some unusual ones) earned balls and tees from Barb and Carman Smith because they drove their balls into the gully on Hole 7.

The prize from Crystlee’s Hair Design went to Deb Rainer for least putts (14) and Linda Ransome, our birthday girl last week, won the prize from MJB Lawyers for using her putter the most (24).

In closing I would like to quote one of my favourite golfers of old, Chi Chi Rodriquez – “Remember-you have to be comfortable.  Golf is not a life or death situation.  It’s just a game and should be treated as such.”

So come on out and play a round with the ladies on a Tuesday night.  We would love to see you.
