Comox Legion golfers wrap up season

Teams play nine-hole, blind-draw doubles at Longlands par 3 golf course

On the last day of summer, Sept. 21, 28 players were at Longlands for Comox Legions golf wind-up.

Playing a nine-hole, blind draw doubles and best ball format, Reg Garnet had his name etched on the perpetual trophy along with his partner Gillian Iddiols.

For Reg, this was his second big win at the Branch golf having had his and John Davies’s name recorded on the inaugural “Myrna Cooley Memorial” trophy.

Reg and Gillian recorded a 28 for the par-three course. After a count back for second spot, Mark Miller and Matt French edged out Frances Wright and Victor Simonson, both with a round of 29.

Most honest award went to Shea Alexander (our smiling bartender) and her partner Steve Palcha (I promised not to announce their score).

Closest to the pin for the ladies was Gillian Iddiols, with Victor Simonson for the men.

Thanks to our sponsors, Labatt’s and Pacific Western Breweries, Comox Valley Nissan, Brian Rice Toyota and Slegg Lumber. And, not to forget our member Joe Cummings who supplied additional items. Their support enabled all participants to receive a prize for their efforts.

Thanks to Longlands Golf who had graciously accommodated us on our monthly tournaments and for the passes they donated.

Many thanks go to Vicky Willington and Hank Fortin for a wonderful steak lunch and apple crumble desert, also, to Tracy Lutley, who did an amazing job of clean-up after.
