Comox golfer Jan Dafoe defends her Champion of Champions title

Jan Dafoe retained her title as Champion of Champions on June 13 by taking overall low gross with an 84 to defeat all the other club champs from Zone 6.

Last year Dafoe represented the Comox Golf Club at Morningstar and won the right to bring the tournament back to Comox. Phyllis Taylor won overall low net at the Comox club championship last year and also played this year in the Champion of Champions at her home club. “What an honour to have these two players represent our club,” a CGC spokesperson said.

In the gross category, Tobi Norris from Glacier Greens won second low gross with 85. The winner of low net in this category was Gwen Cleave from Cottonwood with a 74.

Overall low net Shirley Kirkley from Fairwinds Golf Club managed to ace the ninth hole en route to her 73. Shooting 75 for second low net was Sylvia Lingren of March Meadows.  Karen Deadmarsh shot 91 to post the low gross score in this division.

Closest to the hole on #9 was won by Jan Jarvie from Nanaimo  and on #18 it was Jen Crossman from Myrtle Point. Shari Malchan from Cottonwood managed to be closest on #14. The 36 ladies had to battle the elements, dodging the rain several times during their round.

The course was in awesome shape and the flagsticks were testy but fair.

The ladies were greeted in the clubhouse by Tossawan, Brian, Jeep and Lana of the Comox Bar and Grill. As usual the meal was excellent. The cashew chicken was chosen as the main course with steamed vegetables, rice, caesar salad, fruit and squares.

Nancy Dyke, chairperson of the Zone 6 ladies committee, Judy Pouliot, rules chairman and Sandi Reed head of the Teams and Tournament and all their committee members worked hard to pull off a successful tournament.

Comox, Story Creek, Sequoia Springs, Myrtle Point, Crown Isle, Glacier Greens, Sunnydale, Eaglecrest, Morningstar, Qualicum, Nanaimo, March Meadows, Cottonwood, Fairwinds, Pheasant Glen, Alberni, Arrowsmith, Gabriola and Mt. Brenton were all represented.

Thanks to Jesse and the grounds crew for having the course in such beautiful shape. Thanks to Tossawan for having the dining room set up for the ladies and for the delicious muffins and luncheon.
