Crown Isle ladies’ guests treated to grand time






With the cooperation of Mother Nature, the Crown Isle Ladies golf club held a successful Invite a Guest Day on July 12.  It was a foursome event in which the two best net scores on each hole were counted for the team score.

First place with a low net score of 121 went to the team of Helen Flynn, Brenda Good and Julie Tuepah.  Second low net saw a tie at 123 for Judy Aldcroft, Jane Cunningham, Jan MacFarlane, Joanne Meyer; and Kathy McGillis, Sandra Morton, Shirley Podovsky, Phyllis Seitz.

The KPs were taken by Judy Aldcroft (#4), Pat Johnson (#7), Grace Coulter (#12) and Jenny Steel (#16).  For this round, a special ‘longest putt on #18’ prize was awarded for a putt of just under six feet made by Jane Cunningham.

The day wrapped up with a great lunch and prize presentation. Thank you to our guests for taking part in the event.
