The Thrifty Foods Glacier Greens Ladies Open was played Saturday, June 9 with 84 golfers entered.

On the Friday night there was a tombstone competition and also a chipping contest which was enjoyed by all the participants. The chipping contest was in aid of the breast cancer charity and half of the money collected was donated to that cause. The winner was Frankie McCaffery of Sunnydale.

The winners of the tombstone was 1st place Marie Israel and Ellie Nicholas, 2nd (on a chip-off) was Jan Edwards and Kim Delaval, and 3rd was Milda Karen-Byng and Maggie Hathaway.

The next day was a little more serious as the ladies geared up to go play, at least the sun was shining.  When it was all over and the scores were tallied the overall low gross winner was our own Michele MaCann and our sponsor for that was Thrifty Food. Low net was another of our ladies Glenda Kinney, our sponsor for that was Signature Wines.

The highlight of the day for Margaret Forgerson from Crown Isle was a hole in one on #12.

Other winners were as follows:

A Flight

Low gross: Georgina Hermans (Cottonwood), Shelly Stouffer (Fairwinds), Raelene Robertson (Crown Isle). Low net: Gene Renaud (Glacier Greens), Jill Braun (BC Players Club), Carol Anne Faulkner (Fairwinds).

B Flight

A great lunch was served by Justin and his kitchen staff. Tournament chairperson Judy Fellbaum thanked the sponsors for making it such a great success, we could not do it without them. She thanked our many helpers and volunteers, many of them have done this for many years.

Bill Kelly and his pro shop staff were also thanked for the great job that they do, not only for this tournament but for his help to the ladies club all year. Last but not least she thanked the participants for coming and invited them to join us once again next year for our 40th anniversary.
