Rain holds off for Sunnydale Ladies

Par for the Course: A round-up of action from Comox Valley golf courses




Sunnydale Ladies golfers had a few drops of rain on July 3 but did not get rained on.

The nine-hole girls low gross winner was Jenny Lavery and low  putts went to Ardene Larison. Honourable mention goes to Irene Hilchey for a chip-in on #2.

Next week will be regular golf for them. We hope the nine-hole girls will come out to play a fun game for Xmas in July on the 17th with us.

Our low gross winner was Bev Byerley with an 83. Second was Carolyn Walker with 89, third Judy Berkeley 93, fourth Sharon Littler 95, fifth Trish Heyland, sixth Sandra Gallaway 99 and at 100 was Teri Sleigh.

Low nets were Marlene Gerrie with 70, Trisha Harris 72, Fran Gibson 73, Lys McCcrone 74, Magge Miller 75 and Pat Costello and Penny Wagonstein, Ev Andrews 77 and Joan Brown 77.

Best putts Sharon Littler with 26; longest putt on #9 Marg Poje; KP on second shot #5 Darlene Clark; KP #10 Bev Byerley; KP #15 Trisha Harris.

There were lots of birdies and chip-ins.







Pin Day

Charitably described as a ‘comfortable’ day for golfing, July 3 saw members of the Crown Isle Ladies golf club play their fourth Pin Day of the 2012 season.  Pin Day is an individual game of total net score for 18 holes with all putts holed out.  Six pin days are played in a season, with RCGA, BCGA and Zone awards.

Donna Wilson had first low net with a score of 66.  Second was a tie at 67 for Lesley McFarlane and Jenny Steel. For low putts, Brenda Barrigan, May Mitchell and Judy Pouliot were in a three-way tie at 30.  First low gross went to May Mitchell for her 80 and Valerie Dingwall was second with an 83.

KPs were awarded to Margaret Forgeron on #12 and Katy Macaulay on #4. Birdies were scored by Audrey Clark (#16) and Donna Wilson (#2).  In the Par 5 (25+hcp) category, Pat Johnson and Donna Wilson both had pars on #15.

This was also the Zone 6 Net Tournament Qualifier for players with a handicap factor of 18.1 to 40.4. The tournament will be held July 16 at Qualicum and Crown Isle will be well represented by Liz Ellis, Margaret Forgeron, Kathy McGillis, Sandra Morton, Linda Stickney and Jean Wharton.




Fun game

On Tuesday, July 3, the Comox Ladies played a fun game – a match game between the player and the golf course, where the golfer used handicap strokes to gain or lose points.

There was a three-way tie for the best score among Anne Patterson, Cathy Dash and Pat Everett. Second place was also a tie among Maureen Taylor, Phyllis Taylor and Barb Buchanan. Long drives: Sharon Crowe, Monique Fawcett; KPs: Linda Diamond, Linda Callender, Maureen Taylor. Longest putt: Cathy Dash.
