Crown Isle Ladies get reminded of what rain looks like

Tuesday afternoon golfers play game of Move up/Move back

Crown Isle Ladies have been treated to such glorious weather this summer that we almost forgot what rain was like. Well, almost forgot! The ladies who played 18 holes in the rain on Tuesday remember what it is like.

The game was Move up/Move back. Everyone starts on the white tees.  A bogey or worse moves you forward to the red tees.  A par keeps you on the same tees. A birdie moves you back to the green tees.

That format continues through the 18 holes. Some ladies didn’t know if they were coming or going and others just knew that they were going to the clubhouse for coffee and warmth and to forget the silly game.

Tied for low gross were May Mitchell and Raelene Robertson and tied for second low were Dee Horie and Marsha Mackinnon. Tied for low net were Sandy Linhart and Marlene Horvath. KP Queens were Carol Ayley #7 and Pat Chalmers #12. Par 5 Queen was Marlene Horvath. The birdies were not flying far from their nests today – only three by Pat, Raelene and May.

Kudos to Sandy Linhart for doing a great job of organizing the Crown Isle Interclub Match Play for the year. The final results were as follows:

1. Glacier Greens-237  2. Myrtle Point- 225.5  3. Crown Isle-223  4. Storey Creek- 210  5. Comox- 208.5 and Sunnydale-192.

Remember ladies to mark your calendar for the final Crown Isle Nine and Wine for 2014 on Sept. 10 with 5 p.m. shotgun. Everyone will get to play – no waiting list. Register individually or as a team at the pro shop 250-703-5031. The theme is Swing With Bling so wear your blingiest golf outfit and there will be lots of bling prizes.
