Beat The Pro day at Crown Isle

Four ladies manage to top Evan Webber's one-under 71 gross

Evan Webber, one of our Crown Isle pros, played with all the ladies for three holes each on our Beat The Pro Tuesday.  He said it is one of his favourite days in the golf season.

Evan scored a stellar one-under 71 gross. The ladies that scored lower than Evan were Brenda Barrigan 67, Katy Macaulay 67, Maggie Maclean 68 and Linda Stickney 67.

I was charged with unnecessary whining and given a yellow flag – is this golf or soccer?!

The winners were: Low gross – Raelene Robertson 79, Katy Macaulay 80. Low net – Brenda Barrigan 67, Maggie Maclean 68. The birdie pot was shared by Sandy Linhart, Katy Macaulay, Helen Flynn, Raelene Robertson and Anne Sands. Katy Macaulay took KP honours on both the par threes.

Congratulations to  Marsha Mackinnon who eagled #8. That is quite a feat on a long par four.

Dee Horie reminded me that the wind-up for the Juniors is a Ryder Cup between Zone 5 and 6 scheduled for September.

The Crown Isle Ladies Club Championship was held in August. Overall gross club champion was Raelene Robertson 153 and net club champion Judy Aldcroft 137.

1st Flight: Low gross – May Mitchell 167, Dee Horie 169, Marilyn McCusker 171. Low net – Ev Shaw 141, Judy Pouliot 145, Jenny Steel 149.

2nd Flight: Low gross – Marsha Mackinnon 181, Mathilde Schneider 183, Jackie Hooper 187. Low net – Iris Petersen 147, Sandy Linhart 151, Julie Tuepah 151.

3rd Flight: Low gross – Margaret Forgeron 187, Audrey Clark 203. Low net – Sandra Morton 146, Peggy Quinney 149.

The final Nine and Wine for 2014 is Sept. 10 with 5 p.m. shotgun, with golf, appys, wine or beer, dessert and coffee. The theme is Swing With Bling so wear your golf outfit with lots of bling. Register at the pro shop as a team or individual at 250-703-5031  Come early for the complimentary golf clinic if you are registered for the night.
