Crown Isle ladies enjoy sunshine

Par for the Course: A round-up of action from local golf courses

 

 

 

The Crown Isle Ladies Club spent a glorious sunny day on the golf course last week then were treated to a delicious lunch. Many thanks to Jan and Jane for coordinating all our social functions.

The team game was 1 best net ball on #1, 2 best net balls on #2, 3 best net ball on #3 and then back to #1 again.

Tied for first low net was Team 1 of Maggie McLean (she was awesome), Ev Shaw, Brenda Barrigan and Donna Cunliffe (luckily there is no “i” in team) and Team 2 of Pat Johnson, Joanne Meyer, May Mitchell and Linda Foreman. Second low net Katy Macaulay (our fearless leader and captain), Judy Alcroft, Jan MacFarlane and Judy Constantino (welcome to Crown Isle.)

Lots of birdies: #12 Katy Macaulay, #16 Margaret Forgeron, #5 May Mitchell and #7 Linda Foreman, #5 and #15 Raelene Robertson.

The best on par 5s (handicap 25 plus) Jean Wharton.

KPs: #12 Judy Poulliot and #4 Raelene Robertson (our great rules co-chairmen).

I can’t encourage ladies enough to join in on the fun on Tuesday morning. Great golf, great camaraderie and great golf course facility. Come on ladies, get out of your comfort zone and join us.
