Crown Isle Ladies ‘Swing With Bling’

Final Nine and Wine of the season features much fun and frivolity

Kudos to all the ladies who came out dressed in their finest bling for the Crown Isle Ladies’ Nine and Wine finale with the the theme “Swing With Bling.”

On yet another perfect evening in the Comox Valley nearly 100 ladies enjoyed nine holes of golf on a spectacular golf course, appetizers, a glass or wine, dessert, coffee and prizes. What more could anyone want? We truly are blessed to be living in the Valley!

Many thanks to our eloquent pro and joke teller, Evan Webber, for both running the complimentary sand bunker clinic and MCing the evening. The prizes were given our by two Vanna Whites – male and female – Donna Cunliffe and our director of golf Rod Prieto. Thanks as well to our third muskateer on the organizing team, Ev Shaw. Everyone went home with a prize but there were some big winners.

Front and Back Nine winners- Laurie Appleyard and her team and Sue Leakey and her team.  Those Comox ladies are hard to beat!  Really appreciate them attending our ladies’ nights. Our title sponsor Eagle radio presented them with red coolers filled with goodies including one $50 gift certificate for each nine holes!

Hole #6 Prime Chophouse and Steak House longest putt- Val Jesky.

Hole #18- White Spot Restaurant – closest to the white spot – Sandy Linhart.

Adele Deegan again donated her anti-aging beauty products for the “blingiest” attire.  She perused the ballroom and chose Dorothy Lambourne as the winner. Thanks as well to Dorothy for donating two of her homemade gorgeous hats for fall and winter golf.

Sublime Ladies Fashions donated $25 gift certificates for everyone who attended the night. The classic  Sublime scarf was won by Chris Flynn from Re/Max. Thanks to Chris for donating a wonderful bottle of bubbly.

Our finale and exciting finish to the evening was a game of Heads and Tails in which everyone could participate. The Financial Team of Nicole Deters Investors Group generously donated a Samsung tablet. After lots of rounds with ladies putting their hands on their heads or their backsides, Laurie Appleyard was eventually the last lady standing and won the tablet.

Watch the golf  column in May 2015 for the start of the Crown Isle Ladies’ Nine and Wine monthly golf events. The first one will be toward the end of May.
