On a stormy Sunday, Sept. 29, 42 members of Comox Golf Club competed in the annual Owen Ellis Men’s Closing Day Tournament.
“Owen passed away on April 26 and his legacy of 21 club championships between 1941 to 1992 will forever be revered,” an event spokesperson noted.
Nick Usher won the low gross with a two-under par 68 and Gord Baudais won the low net with a well-earned 60. Although the weather was a bit challenging, the golf was played with great spirit and camaraderie.
Comox GC Men’s Club thanks the following sponsors for their kind support: Westview Ford, Comox Pacific Express, Tee Box Restaurant, Thrifty Foods, Visual Sound, Quality Foods and Shilo Painting.

First place team at -3 was Leo Lamothe, Mario Canil, Paula Mowat, Gary Tripp and Gilles Guilbeault. Second place team was Bob Mowat, Lee Johnson, Mike Barner, Trudy Lamothe and Gillian Iddiols. Third place went to Norm Fellbaum, Roy Hagg, Judy Fellbaum, Rose Jacobson and Caroline VanKerrebroeck.
Closest to the pin on #12 was Paula Mowat for the ladies and Gary Tripp for the men. Leo Lamothe’s team took all the snips. Thank you to Ben Gill’s Catering for the lovely turkey supper.
