Glacier Greens Ladies celebrate Christmas in October

Rossyln O'Rourke and Gene Renaud were low gross winners of the Fran Hume Memorial Shoot Out at Glacier Greens.

Glacier Greens Ladies golfers celebrated Christmas in October on Oct. 5 with a delicious turkey supper and all the fixings.

Money was collected and distributed to the Salvation Army for those in need. As part of the year-end wind-up, awards for the 2016 year were presented as well as prizes for the Fran Hume Memorial Shoot Out, played the last three weeks in September.

Week 1 winners playing a scramble were Beth Broomfield and Liz Stirrett (playing for Jan Edwards) shooting a net 54.5.

Week 2 winners playing best ball were Glenda Kinney and Anne Blake with a net 61.

Week 3 winners playing the dreaded alternate shots were Jan Edwards and Beth Broomfield with a net 76.

When all the dust settled our overall net trophy winners were Jan Edwards and Beth Broomfield and the overall gross winners were Gene Renaud and Rossyln O’Rourke.

Other winners: second net were Glenda Kinney and Anne Blake. Second gross Ellie Nicholas and

Lynne Pringle. Third net were Wendy Dowe and Jean Tonks. Fourth net were Gillian Iddiols and Gussy Pritchard. Fifth net were Marie Israel and Bernice Henderson.

2016 Tuesday Ladies Club award presentations were as follows: The National Pin Award by the RCGA to the player returning the lowest

aggregate of four net scores on pin days was Gene Renaud on a count-back over Lynne Pringle.

The putting competition saw Marie Israel with the best single score of 26 and the best six-game low putting average of 29.8.

The most improved player lowering her handicap was Gene Renaud. The birdie board saw Gene Renaud with 12 birdies and Rosslyn O’Rourke with four birdies. The ringer board had a three-way tie with Bernice Henderson, Gene Renaud and Leslie Hauser.

This same evening was our annual AGM with the appointing for a new executive. The biggest change taking place will be the Glacier Greens

Ladies Open Tournament in June 2017, going from a flighted tournament to a best-ball tournament, so line up your partner for next spring.
