Unlike the previous week, when only three ladies showed up for ladies day at Glacier Greens and competitive play was cancelled (again) due to unpleasant weather conditions, June 18 was a beautiful sunny day and proved  again that our club consists mainly of fair weather golfers.

The other winners on the net side were Rikki Farrell 69, Janet Edwards 70 (cb), Bernice Hendersen 70.

Low gross honours went to Ellie Nicholas 88, Brenda Livingston 90, Judy Brown 93. Low putts Ann Johnston 27. Janet Edwards and Bernice Hendersen tied for second with 28. “Most honest putter(er?)” was awarded to Kelly Gibb.

Crown Isle  ladies were finally treated to a gorgeous day of golf last week. After all the rainy Tuesdays, we certainly deserved it.

The game was Criss Cross where we combined holes 1 and 10, 2 and 11, and so on taking the lowest net score in each instance for a nine-hole winner.

First low net was Donna Cunliffe 26 followed by Rosemary Smith and Pat Johnson 27. Par 5s: Donna Cunliffe, Linda Foreman, Judy Alcroft and Linda Stickney. KPs: Daneen Karch #7 and Donna Cunliffe #16.

Congratulations as well to the Crown Isle ladies who golfed in the Zone 6 Club Team Championship in Port Alberni. Mathilde Schneider, Audrey Clark and Judy Alcroft won one of the low net prizes.

We wish a speedy recovery to Marilyn McCusker and Julie Tuepah.
