Byerley goes on birdie binge at Sunnydale

Par for the Course: a round-up of action at Comox Valley golf courses







It was a good day June 19 but a little cool and also a smaller turnout than usual as a lot of the Sunnydale  girls were visiting Gold River.

I’ll start by apologizing to Bev Byerley who about three weeks ago scored a hole-in-one on our #17 hole.

The nine-hole girls had a good turn out today and Ardene Larison was the low gross winner plus she had a chip-in on #10. Low net was Sherry Harrison with a par on #15; low putts went to Gertie Wesley. Honourable mention went to Louise Hotsenpillar on #15 for a chip-in. Next week will be regular golf.

The 18-hole girls had the smaller turnout and Bev Byerley has low gross with an 81. Second was Carolyn Walker with 94 and third was Teri Sleigh (score not available).

Low net winner was Trisha Harris with a 75; at 76 were Ev Andrews, Marlene Gerrie, Frankie McCaffery and Grace Rodriguez and at 77 was Norma Rankin.

Lowest putts were Marlene Gerrie, Frankie McCaffery, and Teri Sleigh. KP on #5 Fran Shaw; KP on #10 Bev Byerley; KP #15 Trisha Harris. Bev Byerley bagged three birdies and Marlene Gerrie had a chip- in.

Next week will be regular golf.

3,2,1 Tourney

A game of 3,2,1, Tourney was played under muggy skies at Crown Isle on June 19.

A large field of ladies enjoyed the game and the team of Lesley McFarlane, Rosemary Smith, Helen Dahl and Sandy Dudley were rewarded with first team low net of  121 followed closely by the team of Anne Kostiuk, Patricia Chalmers, Liz Ellis, and May Mitchell with 124.

The birdie pot paid out lots of money to Liz Ellis #4, Shirley Ketter #9, #17, Raelene Robertson #4, #7, Sandra Linhart #11, Sandy Dudley #12, Marilyn McCusker #14 and Katy Macaulay #4.

Par 5 for +25 winners were:  Liz Ellis #10, Joanne Meyer #15. Linda Stickney had a birdie on #13 and Sheila Potts had a par 5 on #1 but weren’t in the “pot.”.KPs were awarded to Linda Stickney #12 and Katy Macaulay #4.

Let’s hope for sunny skies for our Canada Day celebration on June 26.
