28 ladies turned out to golf on a beautiful Aug. 28, afternoon and evening. The skies looked quite threatening as we started out and a few rain showers caused us to dig out our jackets but the rain was short lived. The last week before the fall fair is always a hectic time for me. It was so nice to settle back; enjoy the company; have dinner on the patio and have some laughs with good friends.
Flight winners were Tanya Desjarlais, low gross for Flight #1; Sandy LeBourdais, low net for Flight #1; Barb Morris by retro, low gross for Flight #2, Carol Willox, low net for Flight #2 and Evelyn Lucas, low gross for Flight #3. Carol Hindle had a spectacular birdie on Hole #3 to take home the birdie prize.
We had a number of multiple winners. Carol Willox won three prizes – the Barriere Irly Building certificate for a long drive in 2 on Hole 1; the Carl’s Market Garden prize for KP on Hole 4 and the Jul’r by Lynda Enochsen prize for a long drive on Hole 3. Donna Salle was another triple winner with a long drive in 2 on Hole 1 (Barriere Massage); a KP on Hole 6 (River Adventure Co.) and a KP in 2 on Hole 7 (Our Little Secret Consignment Store).
Carol Hindle had a KP on Hole 4 to win the Barb and Carman Smith prize and a long drive on Hole 8 to win the Shais Design. Wanda Amos had two KPs to win the Carol Patton, CGA prize on Hole 4 and Stamer Logging on Hole 6. Tanya Desjarlais had a long putt on Hole 5 to win the Estylo Hair Design and used the least number of putts (16) to win the Barriere A&W certificate.
Other winners were Evelyn Lucas (long drive in 2 – Bodi Mekanix); Babes Shanko (long putt – Country Store Antiques); Susan Newberry (Closest to the new golfer – Crystlee’s Hair Design); Barb Morris (KP – Ron Wallace Trucking); Barb Smith (in the gully – North Thompson Funeral Services); Chelsea Hindle (Short drive – Rainer Custom Cutting); Audrey Rilcoe (long putt – Station House Restaurant); and Susan Bondar (long putt – Val-Bella Studio). Although I gave her a run for the money, Sue Paulhus won the most putts prize from Knight’s Inn.
We are fast approaching the end of our 2012 schedule. With just two Tuesdays left we are hoping to see all our regulars out. Don’t forget that the evenings get dark earlier so book an early tee time.
Club members are invited to take part in the club championship on Sept. 15. Information is available at the clubhouse.
