Sunnydale Ladies support battle against breast cancer

Par for the Course: A round-up of action from Comox Valley golf courses




Sunnydale  Tuesday Ladies golf had a great day on Aug. 7. I think Janice would have been very pleased with the turnout and with all the thought and work that went into  the day.

First we will thank Jane Keoughan and Bel Brown for the draw and figuring out who won what. They kept track  of who won the gifts  and  the door prizes and who donated them, so many thanks.  Vicki Bombini decorated the tables and Irene Peason and Bev Aitken did the flowers and they looked lovely. We even had a visitor from Hong Kong, Gung Winchester, and also Pat Ailles from Comox.

We played as teams and used cards and everyone was given a card designation: ace, king, queen, jack and a couple of jokers were put in the mix just to spice up the game. Then a card was put on each hole and that is whose score had to be used for the team score. The holes that had jokers you could use the team’s lowest score. It is fun to play as you don’t know who will be used till you are on the green.

The winners were Magge Miller, Gung Winchester, Suszanne May and Kathie Reid. Second were Sharon Littler,Penny Wagonstein, Fran Shaw and Cindy McPherson.

KP on #3 second shot Marlene Gerrie, KP on #5 hdc. Suzanne May, closest to the bucket on #6 Susie Currie, #8 long putt Kassy Cessford, KP #19 Kathie Reid, KP #15 Sharon Littler.

After golf we had the door prizes and the hole prizes. All in all it was a good day and when it is all totalled up it will be a good donation to the breast cancer fund in Janice’s name.

T & F Holes

Bright and early Tuesday morning, Aug. 7, 42 members of the Crown Isle Ladies golf club turned out for the game of T & F Holes – an individual game where you count only the holes beginning with the letters T and F, eg. two, three, four, five, 10, etc. and then take half the handicap.  Sunshine and a light breeze made it an ideal day for golfing.

The low net winner was Donna Cunliffe at 31.5 followed closely by Barb Parker and Iris Peterson who were tied at 32.5. KPs went to Carol Ayley on #7 and Julie Tuepah on #12.  Birdies were scored by Liz Ellis (#16), Barb Parker (#16), Eleanor Peters (#4), Iris Peterson (#16), Raelene Robertson (#3), Julie Tuepah (#12), Jennifer Turner (#9 and #11), and Sheila Vangisbergen (#1).  The Par 5 Pot (25+hcp) was shared by Donna Cunliffe (#15), Liz Ellis (#5), Eleanor Peters (#1) and Janet Phillips (#1).

Last week was the two-day Senior Club Championship at Crown Isle and there were some great scores posted.  Valerie Dingwall was club low gross champion with 165; Second went to Sandy Dudley for her 170 and third to Marilyn McCusker at 173.

Club net champion was Sandra Morton with 143.  On a count-back, Donna Wilson was second low net at 144 and Helen Flynn third with 144. KPs were awarded on all par 3s both days. Day 1: Marilyn McCusker (#16), Rosemary Smith (#12), Andrea Spitz (#4) and Donna Wilson (#7); Day 2: Sandy Dudley (#4 and #7), Andrea Spitz (#16) and Donna Wilson (#12).
