Pin ball

The Pin Day winners from five Tuesdays during the season played off last week to determine the Zone 6 winner for Crown Isle. It’s not Carol Ayley, Pam Stevens, Pat Johnson or Sandy Dudley. But if you guessed Donna Cunliffe you are absolutely right. She is the “Ace of Aces” low net winner.

The rest of the Crown Isle ladies played their own games to establish a low gross and low net winner. Dee Horie won low gross with Ev Shaw second. Maggie McLean won low net with Margaret Forgeron second. KPs went to Pat Chalmers on #7 and Dee Horie on #6.

Next week is the last regular Tuesday ladies’ draw.  Where has the summer gone? So ladies please register on the website for both the shotgun scramble and the luncheon. Let’s see everyone out to finish a fabulous golf season.

Seven Crown Isle ladies travelled to Gold River to play in the Jewel of the Isle tournament and all seven won low gross prizes. Dee Horie won third low gross and Valerie Dingwall won fourth low gross. A great time was had by all as they enjoyed wonderful weather, hospitality and tricky rough and greens.

Watch this column next week for the winners of the Crown Isle Jokers  Wild couples tournament and Nine and Wine ladies’ golf.
