Sun continues to shine on ladies’ golf night

The sun god is smiling down on us at Chinook Cove Ladies’ Night

By Leslie Stirling

May 13 was the second week that Debbie was away – leaving the Ladies’ Night to Donna Salle and I.  What a trusting lady!

I think the two of us handled things better than last week.  At least I didn’t try to give prizes to the wrong people this week.

We didn’t have dessert because I forgot to ask for a volunteer last week, but the ladies promised they wouldn’t tell Debbie.

The lovely weather continues and the sun god is smiling down on us at Chinook Cove Ladies’ Night.

Twenty-eight ladies attended… I think many might be away – perhaps spending time with family over the Mother’s Day weekend or getting an early start on the May long weekend.

Trudy Scarlett and Deb Legaree took a great deal of ribbing from me and handled it well.  But hey – it is easy to laugh when you are the big winners of the evening.  Deb scored a 45 to win low gross in Flight 1 and Trudy scored a 48 (33) to win low net.  They both scored deuces and split that pot.  Deb Legaree used the least number of putts to finish her round (15) and won the Interior Savings Credit Union pot.  She also came closest to the golfer on Hole 1 to win a certificate from Barriere Timber Mart, and picked up the Campbell & Company prize for KP on Hole 4.

Trudy Scarlett had a long putt on Hole 8 to win the Station House Restaurant prize, and a long drive on Hole 9 to win the Val Bella Studio certificate.

In Flight 2 Ilke Marais scored a 51 to win low gross and a birdie on Hole 1 to win the birdie pot.  Evelyn Lucas won low net by retro with a 52.  In Flight 3 Heidi Cline on her first evening out of the season scored a 52 to win low gross while Marie Hakes (also first outing ) scored a 60 to win second low gross.  Flight sponsors were Thompson Valley Awards (Flight 1), Stamer Logging (Flight 2) and Ron Wallace Trucking (Flight 3).

And (drum roll please) the following ladies won pin placement prizes:  Evelyn Lucas had a long drive on Hole 1 (Barriere A&W) and a long putt on Hole 3 (Country Store Antiques).  Donna Salle had a long drive in 2 on Hole 2 (Barriere Massage).  Marie Hakes was a double winner with a long drive in 2 on Hole 2 (Crystlee’s Hair Design) and a long drive on Hole 9 (Armour Mtn Office Services).  Babes Shanko had a KP in 4 (Bondar Forest Planning) and so did Joan Streadwick (Carl’s Market Garden).

Debbie Pearce had a long putt on Hole 5 (Estylo Hair Design) while Betty Baillie picked up the Pottery by Romana on Hole 5 for a long drive in 2.  Helen Fraser continued her hot putting by winning the Knights Inn prize on Hole 5 for a long putt.

Carol Hindle won the only KP on Hole 6 (EBL Ventures).  Darlene Nickull picked up the KP in 2 on Hole 7 (Rainer Custom Cutting).  Heidi Cline had a long putt on Hole 8 (Shais Design) while Abbey Bates had a long putt on Hole 9 (AG Foods).  Vreny Kempter used her putter frequently and won the Interior Savings Credit Union prize for most putts.

After golf, dinner, and prizes were finished those of us attending were treated to an early look at the fantastic clothing line available at the club house.  I saw an outfit (shirt and skort) that I was sure Bob would want to buy me for my birthday in June so I picked it up for him.  Wouldn’t want him to get up to the course and discover it was no longer available in my size.  Thanks Bob.  You have excellent taste.

Just a reminder to you lady golfers.  Next week is four club night.  Hope to see you there.
