Sunnydale ladies play Spring Scramble

As sure a sign of spring as the tulips and daffodils is the hordes of ladies taking over Sunnydale Golf Club on the first May Sunday afternoon for the Spring Scramble.

Forty women teed off in glorious sunshine to catch up with old golf friends and a few new faces and played a low stress scramble of nine holes of golf and a lot of laughs. Scores were, as expected, close between all the teams with the winners in the low 40s. After our annual spring meeting, a terrific banquet dinner was held in the clubhouse. It was a very good start to the new golf season.

Back to regular golf business on Tuesday, May 5: Low gross winner was Carolyn Walker (88) who also had low putts for the day (26). Magge Miller was pleased to erase Carolyn’s name and insert hers for the longest putt on #9. Kathy Reid (94), Chris Annand (99), Sharon Littler (100), Laurie Appleyard (101) and Frankie McCaffery (101) were the other winners in the gross scoring category.

Maylene Friesen had a great game and was low net winner (69).  Other low net winners were Lorna Fowler (71), Vicki Bombini, Margaret Ann Poje and Penny Wagenstein (all with 78) and Pat Costello (81).  Margaret Ann Poje also won KP 2nd Shot on #5 for the 25+ Hcp group.

The numbers of golfers coming out on Tuesday mornings is increasing as the weather warms up and we welcome any women golfers who would like to join us for a 9 a.m. shotgun start followed by a great lunch. Some golfers even win prizes!
