Hole in one for Marg Walker

Comox golfer scores first ace during Olive Franklin Trophy Tournament

Marg Walker aced  hole #5  at the Comox Golf Club for her first hole in one during the annual Dorothy Olive Franklin Trophy Tournament.

When asked how she did it, her face lit up and she said, “It just rolled up and into the hole.” As the result of that shot Marg won the net tournament (sponsored by Zone 6) with a 68 – tied with Peg Runquist and June Fraser who lost in the count-back.

Mary Ann Aikman and Yvonne Baker tied with 69 for fourth and fifth. Sixth and seventh Brenda Good and Barb Buchanan 70; eighth and ninth Pat Everett and Rosalie Williams 71; 10th and 11th-Gi Carlson, Patti Harris and Linda Verdenhalven 72; 12th and 13th Suzy Venuta and Sue Leakey 73.

The skill prize winners were: closest to the bucket- Brenda Good, closest to the hole on #4 and #3 in 3 shots for low handicap was Louise Luster; closest to the hole #5 and #14 for low handicap was June Fraser; closest to hole on #7 and #16 in 4 shots for high handicaps was Pat Belanger; longest putt for everyone on #8 and #17 was Marva Opperman and closest to the hole on #9 and #18 in 2 shots was Gi Carlson.

Of course we could not do all this if it wasn’t for our incredible sponsors: The Tee Box Restaurant, Gibby’s Pro Shop, Chinook Forest Products, Playtime Gaming, Looneyrama, Kathy Branch Hairstyling, Arizona Gifts, Panago Pizza and Thrifty Foods.
