Beat the Pro

On a beautiful Sept. 4, members of the Crown Isle Ladies golf club played an entertaining and enjoyable game called Beat the Pro.

The pro plays a couple of holes with each of the foursomes of the day and his gross score for 18 holes is matched against each woman’s net score. We all would like to thank club pro Evan Webber for coming in on his day off in order to take part in this annual fun event and for kindly allowing some of the women to better his gross score with their net.

It was a big day for birdies:  Brenda Barrigan (#13 and #16), Pat Chalmers (#16), Valerie Dingwall (#6), Sandy Dudley (#16), Katy Macaulay (#5 and #16), Jan Macfarlane (#12), Maggie Maclean (#3), Sandra Morton (#16), Judy Pouliot (#16), Raelene Robertson (#10 and #16), Carol Ann Roulston (#14), Eveline Shaw (#12), Rosemary Smith (#1 and #16), and Pauline Yelland (#16).  The KPs went to Valerie Dingwall on #4 and Eveline Shaw on #12, while Liz Ellis won the Par 5 pot (25+hcp) for her par on #1.
