Opening Day

Thirty-two golfers were out for Crown Isle Ladies opening day last Tuesday.

We are pleased to welcome new members Jeannie McInnes, Gail Solisky, Barbara Morris, Cathy Nelson and Rhonda Ryan.

What a way to start the season – beautiful weather, beautiful course, beautiful ladies and of course coffee time after golf. We have an exciting year planned with a dynamic new executive with our new captain Judy Aldcroft at the helm.

The April 7 game was Best Nine Holes and the low gross winner was Raelene Robertson with Katy Macaulay second. Low net winner was Janet Phillips with Pat Johnson, Linda Foreman and Rhonda Ryan sharing second place.

KPs: #4 Brenda Barrigan, #12 May Mitchell and Linda Foreman. Birdies: Dee Horie, Janet Phillips and Val Dingwall. Par 5s: Janet Phillips.

The ladies’ luncheon will be held April 21 after golf. The Nine and Wine golf starts May 27 with the theme “Spring Into Golf.” Future Nine and Wines are July 8, July 29, Aug. 26 and Oct. 2.

This report is coming from poolside in Temecula, Calif. from  Donna Cunliffe, who got a hole in one this week on The Journey Golf Course at Pechanga Casino and RV Resort.

Good Day

Of course the sun was shining – it was Glacier Greens Tuesday Ladies opening day on April 7.

We started the season to reward only the KPs and low putts and a draw for deposits in #18 pond.

Amidst the rusty swings and dusty golf clubs, a good time was had by all. Surprisingly, nary a soul landed on #4 green to claim the KP and Marg Rushton attained one on #15.

There was a tie for low putts with Janet Edwards and Rosslyn O’Rourke scoring 31 and Marg Rushton right behind them with 32. There was only one entry for the pond on #18 which was claimed by Ellie Nicholas.

Join us at 9 a.m. for 9:30. All Glacier Green lady members and anyone new is always welcome no matter what your skill level.
