Tremblay, Smith win first low net at McQuinn Cup

Jacynthe Tremblay and Sara Smith won first low net with a count-back of 75 at the McQuinn Cup, Tuesday at the Comox Golf Club.

The trophy competition originated in 1967, created by Mrs. Goldie McQuinn, whose home was located where Fairway Place now stands. At the time there were very few competitions with other clubs and no ladies 2 ball. Originally, the McQuinn Cup was a match play competition played in the fall. It is now a handicap field event played in July. The McQuinn Cup is open to all members with an established handicap. The person with the highest handicap is paired with the person with the lowest handicap and so on until teams are complete. The team handicap is half the combined handicap of the two players. The lowest handicap person tees off on the odd numbered holes. The highest handicap person tees off on the even numbered holes. Shots are alternated until the ball is holed.

Second low net: Nancy Newton/Linda Verdenhalven, 75

Third low net: Karen Vanetta/Pat Belanger, 75.5

Longest putt 3/12: Louise Luster/Anne Patterson

Longest putt 8/17: Luster and Patterson

Chip ins: Newton and Verdenhalven
