Amazing week at Crown Isle

Ladies and men's clubs busy; course hosts PGA qualifying tournament

What an amazing week of golf Crown Isle members and residents have been treated to.

On a glorious sunny Tuesday, Crown Isle ladies had their Pin Day. Dee Horie and Raelene Robertson tied for low gross at 85 and Val Dingwall was right behind  with 87.

Low net was won by Linda Stickney and Joanne Meyer  at 69 and second low gross was Mathilde Schneider.

Low putts was Barb Parker and tied for second Linda Stickney and Doris Ellis.

KP #7 was won by Rosemary Smith and #16 by Linda Stickney. Dee, Val, Ev, Barb and Mathilde all shared the birdie pot.

Our interclub team, including Sandy, Marsha, Barb, Rosemary, Katy, Dee, Val and Raelene, did well in their first matches against Sunnydale. Crown Isle ladies also did well at the Comox Ladies North Island Tournament  on Mother’s Day. Congrats to Raelene, Dee, Val, Katy, Sheila and Carol.

You must sign up on the ladies’ website for the Tuesday luncheon after golf on May 20 and June 10.

The first Ladies Nine and Dine is Wednesday, May 28 with a 5:30 shotgun including a glass of wine or beer, appys, prizes and nine holes of golf. Sign up by yourself or as a team by calling the pro shop at 250-703-5031.

Mark you calendars for the ladies’ night dates: May 28, June 25, July 30,  Aug. 27 and Sept. 10.  After the golf and prizes, everyone is welcome to go to the Silverado Room and listen to The Duelling Pianos.

Crown Isle ladies are having a “gently used” clothing sale in the ladies’ lounge on May 20-21.  Bring your clothing to sell on May 18-19. Everyone is welcome, and all proceeds go to junior golf.

Not to forget about our men, make sure you go to Gentlemen’s Night At The Office on Thursday nights. All men welcome for  a night of golf, prizes and laughs. Call the pro shop to register 250-703-5031.

Make sure you sign up on the Crown Isle Men’s website for Couples’ Trouble Golf on June 1 with brunch before and appys after golf.

If you missed the PGA Qualifying Tournament last week, David Bradshaw shot a 10-under from the tips for the course record. When I congratulated him he said he wondered who was buying him a house on Crown Isle. The way he golfed, my guess is he will be able to buy lots of houses where ever he chooses.

Everyone was totally enamoured with the Comox Valley and Crown Isle. Five Canadians got full status on the Canadian tour. Check the PGA website for full results.
