Crown Isle Ladies host final nine and wine

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you to all the ladies who golfed in the last Crown Isle Ladies Nine and Wine for the season.  Imagine, sold out with a waiting list!

Kudos to Crown Isle, Eagle FM and Cascadia Liquor Store for sponsoring this popular event. There were prizes for everyone. Bryan Adams was even there on the 18th fairway serenading all the ladies, especially Sandra Morton who got very close to him (the mannequin anyway).  Evan Weber, our very own eloquent  resident pro, was the MC for the evening.

The game was scramble and the winners were Ev Shaw, Judy Pouliot, Val Dingwall and Sandy Linhart.

The Joker’s Wild Mixed Golf tournament was played on Sunday without a drop of rain. The hard-working team of the Chalmers and MacMurrays did a magnificent job of organizing  the game,  dinner and prizes. Thank you to the faithful sponsors, Quality Foods, Crown Isle, Domino’s Pizza and Cascadia Liquor Store.  Don’t forget the last event of the season, Glow Ball, on Oct. 18.

Our last organized Tuesday ladies’ club was also well attended.  The game was a team scramble and the winners were: 1st low gross – Margaret Forgeron, Val Dingwall, Selma De Haas, and Sandra Morton. 2nd low gross – Pat Johnson, May Mitchell, Joanne Meyer, and Linda Foreman. KPs – Dee Horie-#4 and Margaret Forgeron-#12.

A lovely Milestone Birthday lunch was held after golf for all ladies and in particular those with birthdays ending in “0” or “5” ranging from 1938-1958. Many thanks to our great social committee team of Jan and Jane.

Judy Pouliot did a great job of explaining a cart path rule with lots of visuals.  Donna Cunliffe let everyone know about the David Court Memorial Tournament on Oct. 12. It is a major fundraiser for junior golf in the Valley.  Call the pro shop at 250-703-5031 to sign up.

Don’t forget the CI Ladies’ AGM on Oct. 17 at 5 p.m. Sign up on the website.

What a great year of fun, fellowship and golf we have had in the Crown Isle Ladies Club under the awesome leadership of Katy Macaulay. Think about joining us next year – you won’t regret it.
