Sunnydale Ladies held their 60th annual Tillicum tournament on Saturday, Aug. 6 — a two-ball, best ball format with 40 teams competing.
The low gross team was Karen Kloske and Josee Deslauriers with a score of 73, and the low net team was Bev Slater and Chora Eilertsen with a net of 58.
“The highlight for me was a chip in eagle on #5,” Kloske said. “We ‘ham and egged’ it at the right times. It seemed like every time I made a mistake, Josee got a par.”
Both players have won the tournament in different years with different partners. This was their first time playing together as a team, although they have travelled together several times to other tournaments.
“We both love the tournament,” Kloske said. “It’s always well organized and has great sponsors. The course is in great shape for the tournament. The course plays tough. The approaches are very challenging. You need a good short game to score well at Sunnydale.”
Second low gross was Holly Sanders/Susan Hawley at 76, followed by Tracy Ellis/Sandra Gallaway with 79, Carolyn Walker/Judy Berkeley at 81, Sue Fulkerth/Shari Dalager 82, Pat Rudolph/Joan Rallison 83, and Linda Broadbent/Laurie Appleyard.
On the net side, Anne Patterson/Barb Buchanan were second with 61, Brenda Hartley/Marjorie Sheldon third at 63, Sharon Crowe/Janice Nicklin fourth at 64, Vicki Bombini/Maylene Friesen fifth with 64, Lesley Bird/Melanie Bird sixth at 65 and Kathie Reid/Chris Frederickson in seventh.
