Weatherman missing for ladies golf

Rain didn’t stop 24 ladies from showing up for Ladies Night Golf at Chinook Cove

By Leslie Stirling

Sadly last Tuesday I had to miss golf night because hubby Bob was scheduled for surgery and I spent my afternoon in the waiting room instead of on the fairways.

The weatherman was also missing on June 2, but the rain didn’t stop 24 ladies from showing up to try for our many prizes.

Low gross winners were Catherine Phillips for Flight 1, Betty Baillie for Flight 2 and Hazel Cross for Flight 3.

Low net winners were Deb Legaree for Flight 1 and Jeannie Webber for Flight 2.  The sponsors for Flight 1 and 2 were Hub International and Campbell & Co.  There were no birdies or deuces.

Susan Mitchell picked up three prizes – long drive (AG Foods), long putt (Pottery by Ramona) and least putts (Interior Savings Credit Union).  Betty Baillie also picked up three prizes – long drive (Armour Mountain Office Services), long drive (Estylo Hair Design) and KP (Ron Wallace Trucking).

A number of folks won double prizes.  Sarah Watts had a long putt (Barriere Timber Mart) and a KP (Carl’s Market Garden).  Jeannie Seaman had a long drive (Barriere A&W) and a long putt (Station House Restaurant).  Brenda Carl had the most putts (Interior Savings Credit Union) and hit closest to the 100 yard marker (Sam’s Pizza).

Single winners were Barb Smith (long putt – Barriere Massage), Audrey Deveau (long putt – Crystlee’s Hair Design), Catherine Phillips (KP – Bondar Forest Planning), Chris LeCerf (long drive – Country Store Antiques), Wanda Amos (long drive – Knights Inn), Deb Legaree (KP – EBL Ventures), Val Williams (KP – Stamer Logging), and Dorothy Warman (short drive – Val Bella Studio).

Thanks to Captain Debbie Rainer for holding down the fort without me.

I am sure others jumped in to help her and I send my thanks to them as well.

I am looking forward to getting back to golf next week.  If Tuesday happens to be the day Bob gets out of the hospital and you see him walking home from the hospital, please stop to pick him up.  I don’t plan on missing another week.
