No winners

The most difficult decision the Tuesday Crown Isle ladies had to make last week was should I golf or should I not? Well the ladies that golfed got it right. The rain stopped but the game didn’t happen so there were no winners.

Saturday was the Men’s and Women’s Captain’s Cup. Kudos to Terry Cox, Roger Shaw and Scott Robertson and the CI captains Rick Hargreaves and Katy Macauley for their tireless hours of organization. The winning teams were

Don Flynn, Mike Brady and John Whitman along with Sandy Dudley, Shirley Ketter and Donna Cunliffe.

Congratulations as well to Sheila van Gisbergen, Dee Horie, Marsha Mackinnon and Margaret Forgeron who played well in the Glacier Greens Ladies’ Open.

Don’t miss the Crown Isle Ladies Nine and Wine on Wednesday, June 26 with 5:30 shotgun, wine, appys, golf, prizes and tons of laughs all for $35. All ladies welcome. Call the pro shop at 250-703-5031 to register.

The Crown Isle Ladies Guest Day is Tuesday, July 9, with shotgun start, golf, lunch, and lots of prizes and surprises.
