Did you beat the Crown Isle pro?

Many of the Tuesday ladies were able to answer yes to that question last week. What a perfect day for golf on a well-manicured course with spectacular mountain views as a backdrop and great company.

Some of the ladies played well and some got two-out-of-three right-great. A big thank you to Evan Webber, our pro who played with every ladies’ group on the course.

In Beat the Pro, his gross score was counted against the ladies net score. The winners were: KPs – Linda Foreman #4 and Brenda Barrigan #12. Par 5s – Sandra Morton, Linda Stickney, Jean Wharton and Brenda Barrigan.

Congratulations to our Raelene Robertson who placed second low gross in the Malaspina Ladies’ Open Amateur  last weekend in Powell River.

Don’t forget to call the pro shop 250-703-5031 to put your name in for the last Crown Isle Nine and Wine for the season. Great fun, nine holes of golf, appys, glass of wine and prizes. Remember 5 p.m. shotgun.

Revenge!

Sunnydale men’s club played their annual Greenskeeper Revenge tourney on Sept. 8.

The tee blocks were set back as far as they could go and the pin placements were put in difficult positions with mostly tricky downhill putts.

The comments in the clubhouse were mostly about how they would have a 12 or 15 on one hole, but there was one golfer that had a 27 on one hole.The greenskeepers certainly had their revenge.

The overall low gross winner was Larry Ferguson 86 on a c/b. Low net winner was Rick Dawson 86 on a c/b.

Other scores: Low gross 0-10 Greg Koster, Dave Pye 86s. Low net 0-10 Dan Woods 84, Wally Pettigrew 85.

Low gross 11+ Keith McNellie 95, Cliff Carr-Hilton 96, Silvio Alberti 97, Harvey Skerrat 104, Randy Bennett 105. Low net 11+ Darrell Smith 75, Kris Coffey 84, Ham Stewart and Jim Johnson 86.

KPs # 3 Cliff Carr-Hilton, #5 Craig Follis, #10 Dave Pye, #15 Greg Koster, #17 Dan Woods.

LP #9 Robin Ward, #18 Colin Hetman. LD 1-10 Greg Koster, 11+ Darrell Smith.
