Summer on Chinook Cove greens

Tuesday Night Ladies Golf at Chinook Cove Golf Resort

By Leslie Stirling

Summer is here.  Thirty-six ladies braved the warm temperatures to play a round of golf and socialize on June 7.  They were rewarded with prizes, good food and an enjoyable evening.

Flight 1 (Interior Savings Credit Union) winners were Marla Muldoon (low gross – 44) and Trudy Forsythe by retro (low net).  Flight 2 (Armour Mountain Office Supplies) winners were Deb Rainer (low gross – 46) and Leslie Stirling (low net).  Flight 3 (EBL Ventures) low gross winner was Susan Bondar with a score of 49.  According to Susan this was her best game ever.  Well done!  Irene Beeton scored the low net for Flight 3.  Flight 4 (HUB Int./Chad Belbin) was a family affair.  Brenda Carl scored a 59 to win low gross and Jean Amos scored a 63 to take second low gross.  Liz Salle and Karen Peterson split the birdie pot.

There were prizes on Holes 1 and 2 for long drives for each of the flights.  Carol Hindle (1) won the Estylo Hair Design certificate.  Ilke Marais (2) earned a prize from the Knights Inn.  Wanda Amos (3) took home the coveted Pottery By Ramona and Shirley Wiley (4) will be dining on Rainer Custom Cutting meat.  Long putts on Hole 3 mean that Liz Salle and Leslie Stirling will be dining out at Sam’s Pizza and the Station House Restaurant.  KPs on Hole 4 went  to Susan Mitchell (Carl’s Market Garden) and Deb Legaree (Campbell & Co.).  KPs on Hole 6 were made by Donna Salle (Ron Wallace Trucking) and Deb Rainer (Royal LePage/Westwin Realty).  Jeannie Webber took home the Blue Jar Coffee Bar & Bistro prize for coming closest to the 150 marker on Hole 5 while Linda Ransome won a gift certificate from Barriere Timer Mart for doing the same thing on Hole 8.  A couple of long putts on Hole 5 were made by Cindy Stewart (Val Bella Studio) and Val Aylward (AG Foods).  On Hole 7 Carol Hindle won the Barriere Massage certificate for her KP in 2 while seven other ladies received little goodie bags courtesy of Barb and Carman Smith.  Irene Beeton landed in the first bunker on Hole 8 and took home the Barriere A & W prize.  Val Aylward took home the Crystlee’s Hair Design prize on Hole 9 for hitting a short drive while Lynda Fournier had a fantastic putt on the same hole to pick up the Country Store Antique certificate.  Joanne Lyle used her putter more than anyone else (25 times) to win the MJB Lawyer prize.  Leslie Stirling and her good neighbour Lynda Fournier split the Stamer Logging prize for least putts used.  Both ladies were excited about their game…each using only 13 putts to play the round.

I will leave you this week with a question.  If you hold a golfer up to your ear like a conch shell – will you here an excuse?  You non-golfers might need to ask a golfer to explain that one to you.   See you at the golf course.
