First hole in one for Carol Ayley at Crown Isle ladies golf

On another gorgeous Tuesday morning, the Crown Isle ladies played a Pin Day. Much to the glee of all the ladies, Carol Ayley got her first hole in one on #16. Drinks were on Carol after the round of golf – fortunately she had paid into the hole in one insurance.

The winners: Low net – 1st Barb Parker shot 61 on her 59th wedding anniversary. She is such an amazing golfer. 2nd Helen Dahl, who broke 100. 3rd Donna Cunliffe. Low gross – 1st Katy Macaulay, 2nd May Mitchell and Marilyn McCusker, 3rd Judy Pouliot, Matilde Schneider and Maggie McLean.

Low putts: 1st Sandra Morton, 2nd Judy and Donna, 3rd Donna Wilson, Barbara Parker, Carol Ayley and Sandy Linhart. KPs: Judy Pouliot and Maggie McLean. Lots of hands in the birdie pot: May, Katy, Marilyn, Carol, Maggie, Sandy and Barb.

Many thanks again to all the sponsors for the successful Field Day. Sorry I missed some important names – Thrifty’s, Stuart Dingwall, Sublime Fashions, and Stardust Aesthetics and Body Care.

Kudos to Dee Horie who sends me the info on junior golf. Glacier Greens hosted the Slegg Lumber Junior of the Year wind-up under sunny skies and blustery winds.  Crown Isle’s Abi Rigsby shot a remarkable 77 in these conditions to earn low gross.  Crown Isle’s Matt Irvine tied for low gross at 77 but lost in a playoff.

These juniors hope one day to represent Canada internationally. Let’s think Olympics. Many thanks to Bill Kelly, Slegg Lumber and Glacier Greens for their unconditional support of our junior golfers.

Crown Isle played Comox in the fourth round of North Island Interclub Match Play.  Many thanks to Mathilde, May, Barb, Linda, Rosemary and Helen for representing Crown Isle and to Sandy Linhart for organizing.

About 16 Crown Isle  ladies invaded Storey Creek’s Crystal Tournament for the weekend. Another party? Not Crown Isle ladies? Of course Crown Isle ladies! Congrats to Carol Ayley (heard that name before) for best low gross and Anne Sands for best low net among the CI ladies.

The next Nine and Wine is Aug. 26 and the theme is Swing With Bling so wear your blingiest golf attire. Golf, dinner, glass of wine, dessert, coffee, prizes and lots of fun. Register as an individual or team at the  pro shop at 250-703-5029.

Dan Yoon, who everyone loves at the Crown Isle pro shop, just passed his PAT (Playing Ability Test) to get into the PGA program and be able to become a teaching professional. Well done, Dan.
