Norris, O’Rourke winners at Glacier Greens Club Championships

Two days of intense and focused play (rivalled in intensity only by the British Open players) at the Glacier Greens Club Championships culminated in a stunning 154 by low gross winner Tobi Norris and a well-executed 137 by low net winner Rosslyn O’Rourke.

The Ladies Club Field Low Gross was sponsored by Chances Casino and Bingo, and Field Low Net was sponsored by  Bob Scott Bobcat Services and we thank them for their continued support.  Canadian Western Bank sponsored the hole in one which went unclaimed.

The women played well all weekend and their awards were well earned. Bill Kelly and Donna Scott presented each winner with their trophy and the few words of acceptance from each winner were heartfelt. Tobi’s win was especially memorable as she shot a 74 on Sunday.

A Flight winners: Low gross – Gene Renaud 168, Liz Stirrett 174, Sylvia Neckoliachuck 184. Low net – Joanne Braun 138, Ann Johnson 140, Janet Edwards 150.

B Flight winners: Low gross – Lynne Pringle 196, Liz Van Boeschoten 197, Janine Harder 201 c/b. Low net – Gillian Iddiols 140, Rikki Farrell 141 c/b, Glenda Kinney 141.

Saturday KP winners: #4 Gene Renaud, #7 Judy Brown, #12 Judy Brown, #15 Liz Van B, #17 Gene Renaud. Sunday KP winners: #4 Ann Johnston, #7 Sylvia Neckoliachuck, #12 Ann Johnson, #15 Janet Edwards, #17 Tobi Norris.

There are so many people that make events like these a success. Thank you to all the participants who played this weekend. Thank you to all the volunteers; Richard Martin, Janet Edwards, Kevin Hunt, Doug McArthur, Sue Guitard, Jim Hume, Dave Brooker, Dan Fitzgerald, Henry Bondi, and a huge thanks to the Bill Kelly Pro Shop team.
