Thirty couples competed in the Comox Golf Club’s annual Mr. and Mrs. Golf Tournament on July 18 in amazing weather.
To top it off, Al Dafoe scored a hole in one on #18. Along with his wife, our current club champion and current zone champion Jan, they scored net 67.6 in the Odds and Ends.
(There are two divisions: the Husband and Wife for members and the Odds and Ends. It is a net competition).
The winners for a second time were Pat and Nancy Riva with a gross score of 75, net 63. Some extremely interesting shots were performed, as can happen in an alternate shot (modified scotch ball) competition.
Rick Curiston and Mary Buchanan grabbed second with 65.2. Ian and Sue Leakey 69.6, Gord and Patti Harris 70, Stu and Lorelei Banford 71 and Wayne and Linda Callender finished with 74.8.
The most honest couple went to Suds and Bernice Sutherland at the ages of 90.
The Odds and Ends results had Jim and Sharon Prince with 63.4 in first place. Art Karpus and Nancy Newton 66, Jim Eremko and Doris Ellis 66.2, Marty Petersen and Sandi Tufnail 67.2, Al and Jan Dafoe 67.6 and Russ Rodriguez and Carmen DeWinter with 68.8. The most honest couple were Gord Aikman and Colleen Howarth.
Closest to the holes were: Wayne Callender #5, #18 of course of Al Dafoe with his hole in one, Sandi Tufnail #9 and Gi Carlson on #14. Westview Ford sponsored the longest putt made by the team of Marty Petersen and Sandi Tufnail and for the closest to the bucket, which was won by Gerry Dempsey.
Thanks to Phyllis Taylor and Lorelei Banford for organizing the event; apparently the couple who wins must run it next year. Thanks to Jesse from the Pro Shop for his help and to the Tee Box for the dinner. Accolades to John and his staff for the great course conditions that we have been able to play on every day.
