Beat the Pro

On a picture-perfect day in the Comox Valley, Aug. 16 was Beat the Pro day for the Crown Isle Ladies golf club.  This event has a club pro play a couple of holes with each of the foursomes of the day, the pro’s gross score pitted against each woman’s net score.

Evan Webber, a native of the Valley, was the pro and everyone very much enjoyed the time he spent with the groups.  Sleep deprived as the brand-new dad of baby Cy, Evan graciously allowed several women to better his gross score with their net.

KPs were awarded to Deanna McMillan (#16) and Joanne Meyer (#7).  Birdies were scored by Audrey Clark (#16), Pat Johnson (#5), May Mitchell (#1), Rosemary Smith (#5) and Pam Stevens (#12).  The Par 5 pot (25+ hcp) was shared by Pat Johnson for pars on par 5 holes  #1, 5 and 10, and Jennifer Turner on #10.

Sunshine, excellent refreshments courtesy of Barb Guthrie, and great company made for a fun-filled day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ying Yang

Sunnydale Ladies played a game of “Ying Yang” where you choose your best nine holes, before you start golfing, and then halve your handicap to determine your net score.

Low net score winner was Carolyn Walker with a 24. Carolyn was also presented a “breaking 80” pin. She had four chip-ins also while turning in a sizzling score of gross 79. Lois Pynn was second with 26.5 and Vicki Bombini was third with 29. Vicki also was presented with a “breaking 100” pin.

Tying for 4th with 29.5 were Norma Rankin, Kathy Reid, Patricia Harris and Jane Grant. Bente Wilkes was 5th with 30. Tying for 6th with 31 were Bev Aitken, Charlene Cebryk, Sandra Gallaway, Sharon Littler, Betty Lund, Doris Squire and Marlene Gerrie. Suszanne May, Fran Shaw and Irene Pearson were 7th with 31.5.

Carolyn Walker won low putts with 20. Trisha Harris won long putt on #9. KP #10 winner was Darlene Clark and KP#5 in two shots was Jane Keoughan.

Nine-hole winners were: Louise Smiley low gross, Gertie Wesley low putts. Honourable mention goes to Maureen Holt as she broke 50 on the back nine.

Next week is regular golf 8 a.m. for 8:30.

 

 

 

GG Pin Day

Glacier Greens Ladies gave a great round of applause at the start of their day to Kim DeLaval on breaking 90 last Wednesday.

Such a beautiful sunny day had the ladies giving it their best shot for our fifth Pin Day. It was a tight race with Duane Miles

sliding in ahead on a count back with a net 70.

Other results are as follows:

Gross: Marg Rushton 84, Angie Krahn 88, Marlene Hall 89, Jan Edwards 92. Net: Brenda Livingstone 70 c/b, Kelly Gibb 70 c/b, Carmel Horochuck 71 c/b, Lori Cameron 71 c/b.

KP #15 Liz Van B, long putt #9 Kelly Gibb, least putts Rosslyn O’Rourke  28.

I am sure it will be a tight race again at the club championship this weekend. Good luck ladies.
