Nine and Wine went just fine at Crown Isle

Par for the Course: A round-up of action on local golf courses

 

 

 

 

 

 

The inaugural Crown Isle ladies’ Nine and Wine was a huge success. Everyone was treated to a lovely evening of golf, a glass of wine with delicious appetizers, great prizes and tons of laughs. All for $35. What a deal!

Not often does Ron Coulson, owner of Crown Isle Golf Resort, attend golf functions, but our “special guest” appeared in the middle of the first fairway.  Well at least a life-size cardboard mannequin of him. Sheila van Gisbergen won a prize for being closest to Ron on her second shot.

The game was Hidden Partners (your partner was drawn after the game and lowest net partner score was the winner). And the winners were:

1st Barb Parker and Judy Alcroft, 2nd Sandy Lindhart and Cathy Thompson, 3rd Brenda Barrigan and Sharon Hastings, 4th Ev Shaw and Audrey Clark, and 5th Katy Macaulay and Jennifer Turner.

Long drive, Ev Shaw. Closest to target on #8, Kelly Gibb. Closest to pin, Barb Parker. Longest putt (blind draw), Betty Armour.

Rod Prieto,director of golf at Crown Isle, was an eloquent MC with jokes and prize presentations. Crown Isle merchandise, a succulent planter, and rounds of golf at Qualicum, Storey Creek, Fairwinds and Glacier Greens were given away.

Mark your calendars for the next Nine and Wine on June 26 at 5:30 p.m. You never know which “special guest” will turn up.

At Glacier Greens Saturday Men’s golf on May 25, the rain came down very heavy then by 9 a.m it stopped and the day was quite enjoyable.

The men played the blue tees and some of them were as far back as they could put them, and the scores reflected that as they were all on the high side.

Hcp. 0-10: Low gross Larry Lott 74, Barry Norris 75 c/b, Jim Livingstone 75 c/b. Low net Stan Mills 68, Chuck Kennedy 70, Jeff Edwards 71. Snips: #6 & #11 (eagle) Chuck Kennedy, #8 Rob Borland, #16 Brad Smith.

Hcp. 11-17: Low gross Bob Edwards 83 c/b, Dave Brooker 83, Mike Worley 86 c/b. Low net Wally Berger 70, Ferg Webster 72 c/b, Bernie Johnston 72. Snips: #3 Steve Blacklock, #8 Mike Pollock, #13 Kevin Hunt.

Hcp. 18+: Low gross John Holley 87, Jack Jackson 91 c/b, Joe Dunham 92. Low net Andy Clark 71 c/b, Nick Mykitiuk 73, Al Basinger 74. Snips: #18 Al Basinger.

The turnout (79 golfers) was down. Next week white tees and tee times are early birds 6:15 a.m. till 6:52 followed by shared tee times starting at 7 a.m. POGs will be drawn.

Under threatening skies and with cool temperatures, Glacier Greens Tuesday Men’s golfers had their largest turnout of the season for a special Sponsor Appreciation Night last week.

These monthly evenings are for the players to give their thanks for the sponsors generosity and support. While not as many sponsors turned out as I would have liked, I blame it on the iffy weather for the evening. But the drizzle did not start until just as the last player sat down at the clubhouse.

The evening’s winners were: in 1st place with a -5 score, Stan Mills, Brian Hotsenpiller, Nick Mykitiuk, Bernie Golding and Luciano Rollin (representing Panago Pizza); in 2nd place, on a CB, at -4 was the foursome of Jim Larocque, Jack Jackson, Rudge Wilson and John Lahey; in 3rd, losers of the CB, were Dave Wacowich, Wayne Wood, Claud Dufault and Doug Mann. Taking 4th spot, on a CB over three other teams were Wayne Ogilvie, Adrian Haut, Russ Parker, Fred Williams and Alan Richards.

Hole prize winners: #1, sponsored by A-Lure Barber Shop, Dan Dupuis; #2, Jo Klassen’s Grill, Bud Bryan; #3, Panago Pizza, Bryan Hotsenpiller; #4, Scott Fraser/Royal LePage Real Estate, Alan Richards; #5, Chad’s West Coast Grill, John Lahey; #6, The Wine Cottage, Dave Wacowich; #7, Westview Ford, Doug Mann; #8, Yiamas Greek Taverna, Dave Wacowich and #9, Brian McLean Chev, Doug Mann. Two snips also stood up with the Stan Mills team winning one and Dave Wacowich’s group winning the other.
