Special to the Record

Patti Harris, a member of the host Comox Golf Club, won overall low net with a sizzling 64 at the Ladies North Island Golf Tournament on Mother’s Day.

Shelly Stouffer from Fairwinds carded a 74 to win the overall low gross trophy. The team prize, presented by Kay Dick in honour of her late husband, was awarded to the team of Brenda Kelly, Karen Wade, Phyllis Taylor and Sharon Crowe.

Of course none of this could have been possible without our major sponsors Gregg Hart, owner and managing broker of Royal LePage in the Comox Valley and our hole in one sponsors, Canadian Western Bank and Visual Sounds. Although there were no hole in ones, it was the thought that counted.  Royal LePage provided goody bags with the participation of a lot of their Realtors and a towel made by Peg Runquist, one of our lady members.

Throughout the weekend the ladies enjoyed a horse race, chipping contest, karaoke, great food and some great golf. John, Sean, Ernie and Brandon had the course in great shape and the flags in some pretty tricky places.

It was nice to have our new manager, Jesse Moussa and his wife Nadine Ash (teaching pro) take part in our weekend. Nadine provided a free lesson for registering before May 1 which was won by Tobi Norris in a draw.

Adrian, head chef of the Tee Box Restaurant, provided us with an amazing meal topped off with some awesome decadent desserts.

On Saturday night Jesse supervised the Horse Race. Lorelei Banford, Laurie Appleyard and Barb Dixson placed first when they birdied the last hole, #9 . Shawne Munro, Fran Gibson and Sue Leakey placed second and third was the team of Sue Fulkerth, Janet Edwards and Patti Harris.

A chipping contest was held also, with Kathy Branch placing first by chipping 10-1/2″ from the hole, second was Nancy Riva- 4 feet. Ian chose a hidden spot on the green for another prize won by Shawne Munro.

Our tournament is so successful because we have very generous hole sponsors. Bill Wheeldon Construction, Chinook Forest Products- Ian Leakey and Ed Leakey, CIBC Wood Gundy Investment Broker-Dave Wheeldon, Comox Fireplace and Patio, Comox Men’s Club, Creative Orthodontics- Dr. Mark Lawrence, Glacier Gutters- Rick McCaughan, Golf Life- Jesse Moussa, Holland and Cameron- Mike Holland and Chris Cameron, Investors Group-Keith Gibson, J.R. Edgett Excavating Ltd. -Jack and Lynda Hornstein, Marty Peterson Contracting, Royal LePage- Scott Fraser, Royal LePage-Gregg Hart, Scorpio’s Hair Design- Cheri Kahiamoe, Shilo Painting- Mark Vandervoort, Sun Life Financial- Rick Siddall and Tracy Branch Contracting and Finishing. A  generous donation was made by Thrifty’s, Rexall Drugstore, Independent Grocers, and Nadine Ash.

The Comox Golf Club has a very committed group of volunteers as well. Ron Pratt, Brian Buchanan, Yvonne Higgs, Hank Verdenhalven, Gus Baudais and Tom Shaw found our errant shots in the trees, water and somewhere around the green. Ian Leakey, Don Vanetta and Gerry Rautenberg  supervised the chipping contest. A cheerful group of ladies greeted us at the Registration Table. Bernice Sutherland, Margot Hope, Monique Walker, Linda Diamond and Yvonne Baker were joined by Chettie MacDonald from Royal LePage to present us with our goody bags and cards. Pat Ailles was busy polishing the trophies. Don and Maureen Taylor along with Doris Ellis and Bernice Sutherland worked diligently to tally the results in a timely manner.

As the ladies headed into the clubhouse after their golf or flog or whatever you wanted to call it, they received Bits and Bites provided by Edith Albrecht with help from the kitchen staff. In the 56 years of this tournament Edith has only missed one and that was because she was on a cross country train tour.

Chairman Kathy Branch and her committee of Sharon Crowe, Karen Vanetta, Sue Leakey, Mary Buchanan, Linda Callender, Carmen deWinter and Nancy Riva, were congratulated on another successful tournament. Following the presentations Katrina LeNoury led us astray in another rousing Karaoke sing song and dance.

Here are the top winning scores:

Low Gross: Karen Kloske-80, Darleen Michell- 82, Jenny Steel-84, Dee Horie-85, Tobi Norris-85, Katrina LeNoury-86, Pat Peden-87, Georgina Hermans-88, Carolyn Walker- 88, Suzy Venuta-90, Judy Pouliot-90 and Sue Fulkerth-90.
