Crown Isle ladies enjoy a refresher on golf rules

Par for the Course: A round-of results from Comox Valley golf courses







The Crown Isle ladies club was treated to a great day of golf, a wonderful luncheon and a super rules lesson taught by our very own rules queen, Judy Pouilot.

Last week’s game was team Stableford where net scores for each team member earns four points for an eagle, three for birdie, two for par, one for bogey and minus one for double bogey or worse. What’s neat is that blow-up holes don’t hurt the team drastically!

The winners were: 1st Pat Chalmers, Carol Ayley, Linda Stickney and Shirley Ketter 137 points. 2nd Barb Parker, Janet Phillips, Sheila Potts and Helen Flynn 135 points. KPs: Sheila van Gisbergen #12, Marilyn McCusker #4. Par 5s: Pat Johnson #1 and #15, Donna Cunliffe #1.

Hope you didn’t miss the CN Future Links Jr. Championship at Crown Isle last weekend. There was some great shot making. Brooke Henderson (207) from Ontario, Jisoo Keel (208) from Coquitlam, Kevin Kwon (203) and our very own Mark Valliere (209) and Logan Yanick (214) from Crown Isle were all winners. Many thanks to all the hardworking volunteers.

Crown Isle ladies club was well represented at the Comox Mother’s Day Tournament. Katy Macaulay and Valerie Dingwall (who also won a 50/50 draw) were some of the gross winners and Sheila van Gisbergen was one of the KP and net winners.

Don’t forget Wednesday, May 22 at 5:30 p.m. is the shotgun start for the Crown Isle Ladies’ Wine and Nine – golf, appys, glass of wine or beer, prizes and tons of laughs. Call the pro shop 250-703-5031 to register.
