Glacier Greens ladies enjoy weekly round

Par for the Course: a roundup of action from local golf courses

 

 

 

May 7 brought more beautiful clear blue skies and near perfect playing conditions as 21 Glacier Greens Ladies hit the course in teams of three to play a modified Stableford event.

It was a fun event with lots of laughs, some high fives, “Way to go partner, ” and some “Sorry guys.” How could you not have fun on such a glorious day spent with friends?

When the final scores were tallied (and for the most part, there wasn’t much separation between the scores) the team of Judy Brown, Marie Israel and Jean Tonks came out victorious with a score of 126. Hot on their heels was  the team of Janet Edwards, Connie Alexa and Roberta Cadieu coming in second with 122.

Gene Renaud, Glenda Kinney and Fran Hutchison took third place with 117. With only a one point separation, the team of Brenda Livingstone, Rosslyn O’Rourke and Lori Cameron came in fourth with 116. Each team seemed to have their own “secret weapon” today.

KPs were won by Janet Edwards on #4, Rosslyn O’Rourke on #12 and Roberta Cadieu on #15.

Thanks to Rosslyn, who dedicates so much of her time each and every week planning and organizing us. Also thanks to Kelly and Connie  for shopping for today’s prizes.  Following golf we had the AGM and thanks to Rosslyn, who vowed to keep it short and was true to her word.
