Hot time at Devils Scramble

Glacier Greens Saturday Men's golfers enjoy final tournament of season




Clear skies greeted the 100 Glacier Greens Saturday Men’s players on Saturday, Oct. 6 as they teed it up for the annual Devils Scramble.

The scramble is a team event with three different formats and is a fun way to wrap up the season. Having said that, weather permitting the Saturday Men’s play will continue through the winter months.

After the last putt had dropped and the scores tallied the team of Pieter De La Ray, Willie Oliver, Norm Fellbaum, Glen Meeres and Jim Hume were the winners with a score of -15. Next at -14 was Barry Norris, Mike Worley, Jim Clark, William Chiki and Ronnie Peacock.

Two teams were next at -13, Terran Berger, Gabe Tremblay, Don Cruickshank, Nick Mykitiuk, Ron Carter and the team of Rob Borland, Wally Berger, Richard Wand, Bill Krier and Al Dafoe. Fifth place at -12 went to Bill Kelly, Bruce Henderson, Len Doyle, Frank Gibson, and Bob Henn.

Team KP on # 4 (sponsor, Scott Fraser, Royal LePage) went to Steve Peters, Gilles Raiche, Warren Brandson, Rudge Wilson and Vic Crisp. KP # 7 (sponsor, Chances Casino) to Rob Egan, Chuck Kennedy, Tim O’Rourke, Adrian Haut and Wayne Mabee. KP #12 (sponsor, Chip’s Ahoy) to Wayne Mabee, Chuck Kennedy, Rob Egan, Tim O’Rourke and Adrian Haut. KP #15 (sponsor, Bill Kelly Golf ) to Ted Sauve, Richard Martin, Serge Rivard, Claude Dufault and Tim Hautzinger. KP #17 (sponsor, Gary Wood, Slegg Lumber) to Henry Bonde, Bruce Coulter, Mike Pollock, Rod Gray and Glenn Horsepool.

All the players were treated to a fine roast beef lunch and a visit to a well-stocked prize table. The Memorial Bridge fundraising project was a huge success and thanks to all that contributed. Special thanks to Lee Johnson who once again donated a hand-painted framed picture to the project.

“To those heading south for the winter, enjoy and be safe. To those staying in the Valley we will see you at the Golf Club on Saturday mornings weather permitting,” said Saturday Men’s coordinator Len Doyle.
