40th annual Glacier Greens tourney a big hit

Thrifty Foods Ladies Amateur Open attracts talented field of golfers

The 40th Thrifty Foods Ladies Amateur Open at Glacier Greens Golf Course was held June 8. Mother Nature was kind and allowed 83 ladies to tee off under cloudy skies, cool temperatures, and without the need for rain gear.

Great playing conditions on a beautiful, manicured golf course resulted in some awesome scores. Shelly Stouffer from Fairwinds Golf Club fired a smooth 72 to capture field low gross honours and Lorna Fowler of the BC Player’s Club won field low net with a 57.

Thrifty Foods sponsors the field low gross and the trophy was  presented to Shelly by Thrifty Foods manager Andy Carter. Signature Wines  sponsors the field low net and McKenzie Turnbull presented the trophy to Lorna.

Westview Ford, Visual Sound and Quick and Easy Granite were our hole-in-one sponsors.  There were no aces, but maybe someone will have better luck next time.

Winner of the inaugural Glacier Greens Ladies Open 40 years ago (1973), Trudy Newman – now 90 years young – was in attendance at the dinner as an honorary guest. Trudy has enjoyed the game of golf for many years and is well-known in the golfing community and we were truly honoured to have her as our guest.

A delicious meal of roast pork with all the fixings, prepared by Caroline, was enjoyed by all the special guests, participants, and volunteers. A special thank you to Caroline and the clubhouse staff for going above and beyond our expectations. Also a big thank you to the volunteers for giving up your time and talent, without you we couldn’t do it. Kudos to Bill Kelly and his pro shop staff for all they do to help make everything go smoothly. They are truly ambassadors for Glacier Greens. Last but not least, thank you to Steve Bailey and his crew for providing us with great playing conditions on a course that is in awesome shape.

Flight winners were as follows:

A Flight Gross – Karen Kloske 73, Donna Doucett 76, Michelle McCann 77, Sally Dobler 78 (cb)/ Net – Ann Johnston 65, Nancy Newton 67, Sheila VanGisbergen 68, Brenda Livingstone 70 (cb).

Longest Drive – Joanne Calverley #8 and Shelley Stouffer #10. Longest Putt on #9 Patti Harris.

Friday evening’s social, where many golfers participated in the “Chip over the Pond” (not in the pond, like many of us) and a “Tombstone Game” helped to break the ice and provided lots of laughs with a mixture of expertise and a few downright ugly shots.

Lori Ross won the Chip over the Pond (half the proceeds to the winner and half to breast cancer). Tombstone winners were Gene Renaud and Fran Hutchison, 2nd Ellie Nicholas and Marie Israel, 3rd Janet Edwards and Brenda Livingstone.

Many hours of hard work and dedication went into organizing and making this popular tournament a huge success. To Judy Fellbaum and her committee – bravo!
