The Thrifty Foods low gross winner was Shelly Stouffer. She is seen with Glacier Greens pro Bill Kelly (left) and Thrifty Foods' assistant manager Dan Wright.

Golfers were threatened with black clouds on June 11, but a few sprinkles did not damper their spirits for the Glacier Greens Ladies Open Tournament.

In an exciting playoff starting on hole 15 then moving to 16, Shelly Stouffer beat Christina Proteau to win the overall gross with a low score of 75 sponsored by Thrifty Foods.

Kathy Allison from Gold River shot a great round to win the overall net of 63 sponsored by Signature Wines.

On Friday night, between the cloud bursts of rain, Tracy Kenneth captured the Big Break and Amber Dufour and Janine Harder stayed alive to win the Tombstone Race.

The ladies were divided into three flights.  A flight Gross – 1st Christina Proteau, 2nd Dee Horie, 3rd Georgina Hermans, 4th Karen Kloske, 5th Katy Macaulay. Net winners in A – 1st Joanne Braun, 2nd Gene Renaud, 3rd Marilyn McCusker, 4th Karen Hopwood, 5th Nancy Riva.

KP winners were: #4 Chora Eilertson, #7 & #12 Dee Horie, #15 & #17  Christina Proteau. Longest drive: A flight Shelly Stouffer, B flight Chora Eilertson, C flight Barb Sheare. Longest first putt – Kathy Allison.  Squiggly line – Rosslyn O’Rourke, and winning her entry fee back from the early bird draw was Patti Harris.

Following the golf we were treated to a wonderful meal catered by our own Ben Gill and staff.  Our head pro Bill Kelly was MC and called the ladies to come and pick up their prizes from the table.

A special thank you  to Bill Kelly Golf and his pro shop staff,

club manager Paul Dashkewytch, green supervisor  Wayne Woods and staff, Sue Guitard and her tournament committee, and all the Glacier Greens Golf Club volunteers.
