Lots of smiles at Sunnydale ladies golf

Pat Peden was smiling broadly after Sunnydale Tuesday Ladies golf on June 14 for she had just shot a five-over par score of 78.

She was rewarded with a “Break 80” pin, heartfelt congratulations from the other golfers and the honour of low gross winner. Lys McCrone also sported a grin as she was awarded an “Eagle Pin” for her two on #5.

The other gross score winners were Carolyn Walker (87), Lys McCrone (93), Joan Rallison (93) and Sharon Littler (97). On the net side, Penny Wagenstein was the winner with a score of 72, followed by Laurie Appleyard (73) and Cheryl Bickle and Lois Westbrook (75).

Joan Rallison had the lowest number of putts (25) and Cheryl Bickle returned to the Valley to win the longest putt on #9. KPs were won by Vicki Bombini (#10 sponsored by Rob Speer Pro Shop), Kathie Reid (#15) and Barb Dixson (#5 for 25+ Hcp).

Crystal Friesen, our 2015 club champion, and Frankie McCaffery, (2015 net champion) competed under rainy skies at Comox Golf Course on Monday, June 13 in Zone 6’s Champion of Champions tournament against the other club winners from golf courses throughout Zone 6. Crystal had a good day and shot a score in the high 80s to finish in fifth place.

This week, June 21, the Sunnydale Ladies Club will be fundraising for breast cancer research and inviting all members to bring a friend to golf. Pink will be the colour of the day and players will be in teams of four.

Ladies interested in joining us for the day will get a special green fee rate and having a handicap is not necessary. It will be casual golf for a good cause. Be at the course at 8:30 for a 9 a.m. shotgun start.

The long-running Royal LePage Sunnydale Ladies Tillicum Golf Tournament is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 6. This is a partnered two-ball event with a deep prize table for gross and net team winners.

On Friday night, Aug. 5, there will be a golf skills contest and social to the theme of ‘Life’s a Beach’. For more information visit the Sunnydale Golf and Country Club website or phone the Pro Shop at 250-334-3232.
