Fun Tuesday for Comox Ladies

Golfers also enjoy beautiful Thursday evening on manicured course

What a fun day on Tuesday for Comox Ladies Golf. The day was perfect and the greens were temporary as they were just aerated. The format was a team scramble minus 20 per cent of the team’s total handicap.

First place was Monica Yoo, Gi Carlson, Barb Buchanan and Nancy Riva with 46. Second in a count-back was Bernice Sutherland, Sharon Crowe, Mary Ann Aikman and Amber Dufour with 47.8. Tied with them was Joyce Land, Jean Kirby, Pearl Madden and June Fraser.

On a beautiful Thursday night , Aug. 21, Jan Dafoe shot 42 and won the prize donated by Signature Wine. Marg Walker had  a sizzling 28 to win low net for the night. Second low gross was Lorelie Banford with a 43. Second low net with a 34 was Fran Robinson and Nancy Riva  won low putts with 14.

Winners of the skill prizes were: Longest putts – Nancy Riva and Donna Ehrmantraut. Closest to the bucket- Barb Siska (Kathy Branch Hairstyling). Longest drive (0-23) – Karen Vanetta (Thrifty’s). Longest drive (24+) – Darlene McCauley (Tee Box). Suzy Venuta KP #14 (0-23)(Arizona Gifts). KP #18 (24+) in 2 shots – Joanne Schroeder (Mid Isle Gifts). 3rd shot for all #13 – Jan Dafoe (Gibby’s Pro Shop). Draw of the night was for a bunker shot – Judy McMartin on #7 for a holed-out birdie.
