Lois Pynn stole the honours for Sunnydale Thursday Night Ladies final night on Sept. 22. Eighteen women turned out in the howling wind and pouring rain to play a scramble and we had some “different” hole prizes which made for a lot of fun and laughter.
Lois won closest to the pin, water bucket on #11, closest to the tree on #13 and she was a member of the winning scramble team of June Fuller, Erma Derkson and Judy Hughes. Erma Derkson won the water bucket on #17 and Anna Butler won longest drive.

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.
