Good day

After the rain Friday night, Sept. 24 was a good day for both weather and golf scores as 101 Glacier Green Saturday Men played the white tees. Next week it’s the dreaded blue tees with tee times and then a reverse shotgun.

Sept. 24 results:

Hcp. 0-10: Low gross Stan Gibb 71, John Ringstead 73 c/b, Randy Robinson 73. Low net Wayne Ogilvie 67, Rob Cobham 68 c/b, John Pringle 68 c/b. Hcp. 11-14: Low gross Mike Worley 78 c/b, Bud Bryan 78, Paul Schroeder 79. Low net Al Donovan 64, Mike Gibbs 66 c/b, Barry Howell 66.

Hcp. 15+: Low gross Al Basinger 81 c/b, Ross Dowe  82, Glen Parsons 84. Low net John Holley 66 c/b, Len Doyle 66, Frank Gibson 67.








After Monday’s weather, the Crown Isle ladies were dubious about their chances of playing their final game of the season on Tuesday, but play they did – and it was quite a nice day for the game of Tombstone.

With Tombstone, each person plays the course until she has taken as many shots as the par of the course plus her handicap.  The player going the furthest around the course is the winner.

Judy Aldcroft was the winner with a minus 1 net. She was closely followed by three at even par net – Sandy Dudley, Sandy Linhart and Katy Macaulay.

KPs were awarded to Linda Foreman (#16), Anne Kostiuk (#7), Katy Macaulay (#12) and May Mitchell (#4).  Birdies were scored by Judy Aldcroft (#8), Shirley Ketter (#15), Sandy Linhart (#18) and Shannon Nelson (#1, 12, and 15).  The Par 5 Pot (for 25+ hcp) went to Liz Ellis (#1).

A nice lunch and awarding of prizes followed the game.

The members of the Crown Isle Ladies golf club wish to take this opportunity to thank Barb Guthrie for the refreshments served each week for so many years. Barb is relocating and will no longer be at the 16th hole providing such delicious snacks.







Final game

On Sept. 22, the Comox Thursday evening ladies league had their final game of the season.

Despite the wind and rain, Suzy Venuta had a low gross score of 41, followed by Sue Leakey and Laurie Appleyard who both shot 44. Low net for the evening was Pat Belanger with 34 and second was Linda Callender with 35. Low putts went to Karen Vanetta, Brenda Good and Laurie Appleyard, each with 14.

The Thursday night ladies league would like to thank our sponsors – Signature Wines, Panago Pizza, Sprinklers Grill, our Avon representative, Arizona Gifts, Videos ‘n’ More, Shipwrecked on 5th, Chinook Forest Products, Dr. P. Nasralla and Double G Golf. The hole prizes went to Phyllis Taylor, Darlene Macauley, Suzy Venuta, Brenda Good, Carmen VanVeller and Laurie Appleyard.




Last putts

Sept. 20 was the Glacier Green Tuesday Men’s last night for this year with 60 players playing nine holes followed by a barbecue chicken dinner and prizes.

The results: 1st -6 Dave Lacoic, Al Nichols, Wayne Mabee, Russ Wreggett; 2nd -5 Chris Kalney, Bud bryan, Murray Polson, Al Waddell; 3rd -5 Chris Pouliot, Henry Bonde, Mike Gibbs, Doug Mann; 4th Don Buchan, Jim Larocque, Richard Wand Dennis Viclund.
