The coveted Valley Cup was up for grabs on Sunday, Oct. 16 when five teams of eight representing Glacier Greens, Comox, Sunnydale, Storey Creek and Crown Isle golf clubs met at Glacier Greens.
This is an annual competition hosted by one of the clubs each year. Usually the teams are captained by their head professional and include some of the best golfers from the club. After play, the best six gross scores from each club are counted and totaled.
This year the strong Glacier Greens team with home field advantage was the winner with a team score of 431. Next at 454 was Crown Isle then Sunnydale at 459 and tied for fourth with 466 was Comox and Story Creek.
The Glacier Greens Men’s club sponsored a team Close to the Hole prize on hole number 15 and that was won for the Glacier Greens team by head professional Bill Kelly.
Snips went to Barry Norris (Glacier Greens) for an eagle on #2, Chuck Kennedy (Glacier Greens) #6, Grant Goudy (Comox) #8, Oliver Munro (Crown Isle) #1 and to Robin Ward (Sunnydale) #17.
Next year it’s Comox Golf Club’s turn to host this event.
