It was a wet one, but members of the Crown Isle Ladies golf club turned out on June 12 for a combination of Pin Day and the Dorothy Oliver Franklin Tournament.
Pin Day is an individual game of total net score for 18 holes with all putts holed out; in a season, six such games are played with RCGA, BCGA and Zone awards. The Dorothy Oliver Franklin Tournament is individual stroke play, with the best net score submitted to Zone 6. The entry fee for this challenge goes to support junior golf.
The low net winner was Donna Wilson with a score of 64. Second was a tie at 68 for Helen Dahl and Lesley McFarlane. In the Low Putts category, Donna was first with 28 while Maggie Maclean was second with 29. Maggie was first low gross for her 81 and Jenny Steel was second at 83.
KPs went to Sandy Dudley on #16 and Liz Ellis on #7. Birdies were as follows: Mavis Baines (#12), Maggie Maclean (#9), May Mitchell (#11 and #17) and Jenny Steel (#5). Pars (25+ hcp) were scored by Judy Aldcroft (#1), Liz Ellis (#1 and 10), Margaret Forgeron (#18) and Donna Wilson (#15).
The Captain’s Cup was held June 2. It was a team game with each team having three players: A (low hcp), B (mid hcp) and C (high hcp), determined by a blind draw. The format was a scramble, and the scores were very close.
Two teams tied at 72 and two at 74, and the winners had to be determined by a chip-off. The winning teams were: 1st – Katy Macaulay, Carol Ann Roulston and Pat Johnson; 2nd – Valerie Dingwall, Mavis Baines and Jan Macfarlane; and 3rd – Eveline Shaw, Sheila Vangisbergen and Joanne Meyer.

Sunnydale Ladies golf on June 12 was one of those days when only the brave went golfing and a lot stayed home and the rest played train.
The ones that did play played only nine holes and were quite wet when they got in. The ladies day was cancelled so will be scheduled for next week when we hope to have better weather.
