Great day for Crown Isle Ladies

Toughest decision was whether to play the red tees or the silver tees

Isn’t life grand when the biggest decision the Crown Isle Ladies had to make this Tuesday morning was whether to play the red tees or the silver tees?

For those who chose the silver tees, congrats to 1st low gross to Val Dingwall, Carol Ayley and Judy Pouliot and 2nd low gross to Katy Macaulay. 1st low net to Maggie McLean and 2nd low net to Rosemary Smith, Marilyn McCusker and Mathilda Schneider.

For those who chose the red tees, congrats to 1st low gross to Sandy Dudley and 2nd low gross to Shirley Ketter and 1st low net to Marsha MacKinnon and Donna Cunliffe and 2nd low net to Donna Wilson and Sandra Morton.

The birdie pot  was ravaged by many and KPs went to Maggie McLean on #7 and Sheila van Giesbergen on #16.  Brenda Barrigan and Linda Stickney shared the par 5 pot. The Piggy was fed lots of quarters for all the 3 putts!

Other Crown isle happenings include a great showing by our interclub team of Ev, Val, Rosemary, Helen, Jean, Sandy, Linda and Pat who hosted teams from Sunnydale, Glacier Greens, Comox, Myrtle Point and Storey Creek. Kudos to Sandy Linhart for all her hard work in organizing interclub play.

What a fine showing  our Crown Isle ladies had at the Port Alberni Amateur Seniors’ Golf Tournament on May 22-23: Dee 3rd low net, Katy 1st low gross in her age category, Val 1st low gross in her age category, and  Sheila 2nd  low net. Judy was also there as our very knowledgeable rules official.

Our “gently used” clothing sale was an overwhelming success. Julie and Audrey thank everyone who contributed to its success. All proceeds raised went to junior golf.

Congratulations  to Helen Kitchen who scored a hole in one on #4 this week!

If you haven’t signed up on the CI mens’ website for the Couples’ Trouble Golf on Sunday June 1, get with it. Time is running out!

Also a little birdie told me that two of our ladies, Sheila and Mathilde, will be singing in the Celebration Singers concert at the Sid Williams on June 8 at 7 p.m.  Sounds like it is going to be an amazing show and tickets are selling fast.
