No rain for Chinook Cove Ladies Golf

Thirty ladies turned out to take advantage of the weather at Chinook Cove Golf Course

By Leslie Stirling

It happened.  It actually happened on Tuesday, June 26.   Although the rain had threatened a bit earlier in the day the clouds moved on.  We had a beautiful sunny warm evening for golf.  Thirty ladies turned out to take advantage of the weather and the golf course which is in excellent condition.  Life is good!

Carol Hindle took advantage of the good weather to post a score of 46 to win low gross for Flights 1.  She was also the big winner when it came to the Hole prizes.  She had a killer long drive in 2 on #2 to win the Rainer Custom Cutting certficate; a KP on #4 to win the Barb and Carman Smith prize; and a long drive on #5 to win the Station House Restaurant prize.

Donna Salle was the Flight 1 low net winner and also won the Knights Inn prize for long drive on Hole #1.

Deb Rainer was the low gross winner for Flight 2 with a score of 49.  She also picked up two hole prizes from Our Little Secret Consignment Store (long drive – Hole 2) and Wallace Trucking (KP on Hole 6).  Audrey Rilcoe won the low net for Flight 2 and also took home the Carl’s Market Garden hidden score prize.  The big winner in Flight 3 was Evelyn Lucas with a score of 52.

Sunny LeBourdais scored a deuce on Hole six to win the deuce pot which was a carry over from the last ladies night (when we actually golfed and didn’t just eat).  Other prize winners were Susan Newberry (long putt – Shais Design), Sharon Spooner (Carol Patton, CGA), Leslie Stirling (Val-Bella Studio and Bodi Mekanix), Wanda Amos (Jul’r by Lynda and Stamer Logging), Ilke Marais (AG Foods), Debbie Pearce (River Adventure Co. and Estylo Hair Design), Sandy LeBourdais (Barriere A & W), Joan Streadwick (Barriere Irly Building), Shirley Ross (Barriere Massage), Emma Allen (Country Store Antiques) and Brenda Carl (Crystlee’s Hair Design).

The usual suspects lined up to pick up gift packets from North Thompson Funeral Services for the dubious honour of hitting into the gully on Hole 7.  I must admit I envied them as I am currently playing with a particularly ugly pink coloured ball.  I guess if I weren’t so cheap I could buy a new one.

We finished the evening with dinner on the patio – good food, great friends, yummy desserts provided by Barb Smith, Deb Winiski, Susan Newberry and Helen Fraser.    You just can’t ask for more.
