Three Queens and a Jack at Crown Isle

One of the fun traditions for the Crown Isle Ladies golf club, dating back some 15 years, is Three Queens & a Jack, a team event with each team made up of three Queens and one volunteer Jack from the Men’s Club.




One of the fun traditions for the Crown Isle Ladies golf club, dating back some 15 years, is Three Queens & a Jack, a team event with each team made up of three Queens and one volunteer Jack from the Men’s Club.

The team score is three low nets on each hole but the Jack’s must be counted on nine of the 18 holes. Any three low nets may be used on the other nine holes.

A 7:30 a.m. shotgun start on a beautiful day saw a large field of competitors. Crowned Queen for 2011 was Barb Parker with the low net of 65, while Ramsay Poucher was crowned Jack for his low net 63. Roger Shaw tied the low net but  unfortunately couldn’t attend the coronation.

Low net teams were as follows: 1st net 193 Barb Parker, Shirley Podovsky, Linda Stickney, Harold Stevens; tied 2nd 196 Gillian Kirkpatrick, Eveline Shaw, Rosemary Smith, Paul Kingham; and Judy Aldcroft, May Mitchell, Mathilde Schneider, Chip Wilson; 3rd net 197 Liz Ellis, Linda Foreman, Eleanor Peters, Keith Libby.

KPs for the Queens went to Liz Ellis (#12) and Barb Parker (#4).  For the Jacks it was Grant Compton (#7) and Ramsay Poucher (#16).  For this event, the longest putts on #18 were recorded and, keeping it in the family, Cheryl Davies won for the Queens and Lawson Davies for the Jacks.  Birdies and par 5 pars were too numerous to list.  Congratulations go to club captain Liz Ellis for her hole-in-one on #16.

The perfect end to the day was a barbecue, held at the home of Judy and George Aldcroft.
