May 5 on the greens at Chinook Cove Golf

Ladies Night Golf at Chinook Cove Golf Resort near Barriere

By Leslie Stirling

Three weeks in and the weather god has been fairly good to us.  The last couple of groups got hit with a bit of rain on Tuesday but it could have been a whole lot worse.  As we looked southeast from the golf course we could see that the folks in Dixon Valley were getting drenched but we were fine.

A total of 33 ladies turned out to play a round, have some dinner and take home some prizes.

The low and net prizes were sponsored this week by Hub International, EBL Ventures and Stamer Logging.

Carol Hindle had another good round and won low gross for Flight 1 with a score of 46.  Deb Legaree had a 49 to win low net (34).  Carol also had a long putt to win the certificate from Barriere Timber Mart, a long drive for the Country Store Antiques prize and KP in 2 to win the much coveted pottery glass from Pottery by Ramona.   Flight 2 winners were Audrey Rilcoe (low gross 48) and Cathy Theriault (low net 49).  Flight 3 winners were Wanda Amos (60) and Irene Beeton (61).

Deb Legaree and Linda Ransome split the deuce pot while winning KPs (Bondar Forest Planning and Ron Wallace Trucking).   Linda also won the Interior Savings Credit Union low putt prize with 14 putts.  Lynda Fournier did point out that although she had the most putts last week she had improved substantially by cutting the number in half.  Well done!  Susan Bondar was one of six that used 23 putts and won the most putt prize by draw.

Pin placement prize winners were as follows:  Karen Peterson (AG Foods), Audrey Rilcoe (Armour Mtn Office Services and Sam’s Pizza), Barb Smith (Barriere A & W), Babes Shanko (Barriere Massage), Vreny Kempter (Crystlee’s Hair Design), Betty Foote (Carl’s Market Garden), Joan Streadwick (Estylo Hair Design), Susan Bondar (Knights Inn), Darlene Nickull (Rainer Custom Cutting),  Chris LeCerf (Station House), and Jeannie Webber (Val Bella Studio).  Joanne Lyle had her very first KP on Hole 4 to win the Campbell & Company prize.

In an effort to revive the joke telling segment of our prize presentation Leslie Stirling opened with one about a husband and wife golfing together.  Other ladies are encouraged to bring their favourite golf jokes or stories to share.

If you want to hear the joke, you will have to talk to Leslie!
