Carolyn Walker and Greg Koster claimed the Sunnydale women's and men's club championships.

Sunnydale Golf and Country Club held its club championship on Aug. 23-24.

For the first time we combined the men and women playing on the same two days, with Carolyn Walker and Greg Koster claiming the respective titles.

We had a shotgun start Saturday with the women starting on the front nine and the men on the back nine. On Sunday we reversed the starting positions. It was a great turn out, as we had 36 women and around 60 men. This year our organizing committee made a great effort to encourage our high handicappers to come out and join in.

Walker earned the women’s club championship with a two-day low gross 176. Crystal Friesen was runner-up with 185. Net winner was Lois Westbrook with 143 and runner-up Frances Shaw with 146.

There was a battle for longest drive both days. Crystal Friesen won both days on #14 and Joan Rallison won both days on #7. KPs Saturday: #10 Betty Lund, #15 Charlene Cebryk, #17 Doris Squire. KPs Sunday: #10 Monique Fawcett, #15 Terri Sleigh, #17 Maylene Friesen.

Bente Wilkes won closest to the squiggly line on #6. Most improved golfer over the two days was Pat Rudolph. Most sportsmanlike golfer Rita Dalby.

Team Prize went to Barb Dixon, Kathy Reid, Maggie Miller and Sheila Coad. Cheryl Bickle won a dozen golf balls donated by Planet Clean

Pat Costello won a wine and chocolate basket donated by Charlene Cebryk.

On the men’s side, low gross and club champion is once again Koster, who carded a 139. Runner-up was Tyler van Anrooy with 143. Low net winner was Scotty Matoon with 137 on a count-back over Damon Gaudet.

The 55+ low gross was Mitch Carr-Hilton with 150, 55+ low net Rob Heron with 139, 65+ low gross Butch Williams 156, and 65+ low net Rick Bono 139.

We thank our sponsors who generously donated to our club: Chinook Forest Products, Uptown Yarns, First Insurance, Speer Golf Ltd., Planet Clean, Fifth Street Florist for the amazing bouquets, Charlene Cebryk, and Sunnydale Ladies Club.

The men’s club was very helpful with their time and enthusiasm. An extra thank you to Rob Heron and Dave Pye. Susie Currie and Sharon Littler planned all the details to make sure our joint venture went smoothly. (The bottled water in iced coolers on some of the tee boxes was really appreciated).

On Sunday afternoon our kitchen served us with either barbecued steak or chicken and fresh veggies and salads. Thanks so much to you all for your hard work.
