Crown Isle Ladies play Back-up/Move-up

Par for the Course: A roundup of action from Comox Valley golf courses

Back-up/Move-up at Crown Isle

 

 

 

Interesting – that may well be a good descriptor of the game of Back-up/Move-up played Aug. 28 by the Crown Isle Ladies golf club.

Everyone starts from the white tee box – if you bogey or more you move forward a tee box on the next hole.  If you par the hole you start from the same tee box on the next hole; if you birdie the hole you go back a tee box for the next hole.  Play continues moving up or back.

Low gross winner was May Mitchell with an 80 and second  went to Katy Macaulay for her 83. First low net was Eleanor Peter’s 65, while there was a three-way tie for the second at 69 scored by Pat Johnson, Sandy Linhart and Anne Sands.

The KPs were awarded to Mavis Baines on #12 and Helen Kitchen on #7. Lots of birdies: Mavis Baines (#2 and #12), Sandy Dudley (#16), Pat Johnson (#12), Katy Macaulay (#16), Jan Macfarlane (#16), Maggie Maclean (#1 and #13), May Mitchell (#6), Sandra Morton (#18), Barb Parker (#17), Eleanor Peters (#15), Iris Peterson (#16), Anne Sands (#5), Sheila van Gisbergen (#2) and Donna Wilson (#7). In the Par 5 (25+hcp category), Pat Johnson had a par on #1 and Gillian Kirkpatrick had one on #5.

Perhaps two descriptors would be more appropriate – interesting and fun.
