Crown Isle Ladies wrap up season

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

What a wonderful way to complete a great season of Crown Isle Ladies Golf – AGM chaired by the most eloquent Katy Macaulay, buffet dinner served by Crown Isle, awards to all the worthy recipients for 2013 and then party time in the Timber Room.

The winners were: Club Champion – Abigail Rigsby. Senior Club Champion – Val Dingwall. Net Club Champion – Janet Phillips. Senior Net Champion – Sandy Linhart.

Ace of Aces – Donna Cunliffe. Captain’s Singles Match Play – Dee Horie. Vice-Captain’s Singles Match Play – Barb Parker. Captain’s Doubles Match Play – Donna Cunliffe and Karen Hopwood. Vice- Captain’s Doubles Match Play – Judy Pouliot and Pat Johnson.

Lowest Net Pin Round – Raelene Robertson. RCGA Low Aggregate Pin Rounds – Raelene Robertson and Donna Cunliffe. Most Improved – Ev Shaw.

Tuesday birdies – Raelene Robertson. Par 5s – Linda Stickney. Hole In One – Karen Hopwood on #7 at Crown Isle and Ev Shaw #16 at Arrowsmith.

After a well-attended meeting, Jason Andrew entertained us with his views on “The Future of Golf.”  He has some very passionate ideas about this topic.

Our Crown Isle executive sadly said goodbye to Valerie Dingwall as interclub coordinator and Jan McFarlane and Jane Cunningham as social convenors.

Happily, Katy announced that Pat Johnson and Anne Sands will be on the 2014 executive as the new social convenors and Sandy Linhart will take the reins as interclub coordinator.

Kudos to Rod Prieto and his pro shop staff and marshals who were there to help every Tuesday (even the drowned rat Tuesdays!), Evan Webber for his MCing on the Ladies’ Nine and Wine, the maintenance crew for the wonderful shape the golf course was in all year and Gregor and his food and beverage team who served us so well at all our luncheons.

The Crown Isle couples had their last event of the season, Glow Ball, on a full moon but  foggy Friday night. What a blast!  If you haven’t played Glow Ball don’t miss it next year.

Thank you to Bob and Pat Chalmers, Allan McMurray and Judy Kaffka, Allan and Sandra Barwick, and Bryan and Elaine Johnstone for all their hard work in making this couples’ year so successful.
