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.
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.
