Opening Day

The Sunnydale Tuesday Ladies Club and our nine-hole golfers, and others, held our opening day on April 30. It was followed by a luncheon and business meeting. We started our 9-hole scramble in a very cold wind with the sun shining on our faces.

The low gross winners of our prestigious Sunnydale logo golf ball, with a score of 41, were Lois Westbrook, Andrea McGuiness, Fran Gibson and Trudi Garratt. Second low gross winners, with the same prize, with a score of 42 were Patricia Lowe, Betty Lund and Barbara Dixon.

We had a great turnout for the beginning of the season with 51 golfers.  Everyone welcome. See you next week.

Pin Round

Except for being severely windblown, the Glacier Greens Tuesday Ladies were none the worse for wear following a beautiful sunny day on the course on April 30.

Our first Pin Round of the year was the order of the day. Marie Israel was the winner with a low net score of 64 and literally went home with the gold. Gillian Iddiols came in second with a net 65.

Liz VanB won first low gross with a 92 followed by Brenda Livingstone with a 95 (beating her friend, who shall remain nameless, in a countback).

KP winners were Roberta Cadieu on #4 and Liz VanB on #12.
