Linda Callender wins low gross, Anne Patterson takes low net honours

The Comox Ladie’s Golf Club played for two  plaques on a very wet Tuesday, Sept. 2.

The Low Gross Plaque was won with a score of 88 in a count-back with Linda Callender (1st), Lorelei Banford (2nd) and Pat Everett (3rd). Anne Patterson won the Low Net Plaque with a  score of 67.

Fourth low gross  was Sue Leakey with 89. Second low net was won by Gi Carlson (71) and tied for third with 73 was Pat Schmidt, Louella Dooe and Linda Broadbent. Grace Coulter, Nancy Riva and Peg Runquist were tied at 74.

The hole prizes were won by: Joyce Land-closest to the bucket (Looneyrama), KP #4 and #13 in three shots was Sharon Crowe (Tee Box), KP #5 Pat Everett (Gibby’s Pro Shop), KP #7 and #16  Barb Buchanan (Panago Pizza), KP #9 and 18 in two shots Louella Dooe (Playtime Gaming) and the longest putt was won by Lorelei Banford.

Second low gross and net were Grace Coulter (42) and Joanne Schroeder (34). Karen Vanetta, Janice Nicklin, Linda Diamond, Carmen deWinter all had 15 putts.
