Crown Isle ladies have double the fun

Lots of action at local golf courses





Sept. 6 had the Crown Isle Ladies golf club members playing two games at the same time.  One was Par Points, which is individual play where points are scored using full handicap (1 point for bogey, 2 for par, 3 for birdie and 4 for eagle) and the player with the most points wins.

Par Points winner was Pat Johnson with 46 points followed by Donna Wilson with 43.

The other game was the season’s final Pin Day, where the winning net score for 18 holes is submitted for RCGA, BCGA and Zone awards and Pat Johnson and Donna Wilson came out on top for it as well.

Pat was the low net winner at 62 and Donna was close behind with 65. Low gross was May Mitchell’s 76 while second was a tie for Val Dingwall and Katy Macaulay at 83. Low putts winner was also a tie – Val Dingwall and Donna Wilson each had 29.

KPs went to Katy Macaulay on #4 and Jennifer Turner on #12. Birdies were scored by Val Dingwall (#3 and 17), May Mitchell (#11, #16 and #17), Barb Parker (#2) and Donna Wilson (#12).




Close game







Glacier Greens ladies played the last pin round of the season on Sept. 6 with superb weather and course conditions. It was a close game as many brought their A game.

The winner of the last “precious stone” pin was Carmel Horochuk with a net 67 on a countback. The rest of the results were as follows:

Gross: Gene Renaud 85, Duane Miles 86, Jan Edwards 87, Tobi Norris 89 c/b, Marlene Hall 89 c/b. Net: Leslie Hauser 67, Lori Cameron 68 c/b, Lorraine Courtemanche 68 c/b, Gillian Iddiols 68 c/b, Fran Hutchison 70.
