Team event

The May 15 competition for the Crown Isle Ladies golf club was a team event.  Following each hole, the team chose the two best net scores and added them together for their team score on each hole.

It was a tight race.  The first low net team with a score of 121 was Audrey Clark, Carol Ann Roulston, Sheila Vangisbergen and Donna Wilson. They were closely followed by four teams tied for second low net at 122.  These included: Pat Chalmers, Jan Macfarlane, and Barb Parker; Mavis Baines, Katy Macaulay, Joanne Meyer and Eveline Shaw; Jean Curry, Gillian Kirkpatrick, Maggie Maclean and Raelene Robertson; Marilyn McCusker, May Mitchell, Sandra Morton and Shirley Podovsky.

There was a ton of birdies: Carol Ayley (#7), Sandy Dudley (#9), Dee Horie (#9), Shirley Ketter (#14), Gillian Kirkpatrick (#7), Sandy Linhart (#2), Katy Macaulay (#10 and 14), Maggie Maclean (#11), May Mitchell (#2, #6 and #8), Barb Parker (#15), Raelene Robertson (#7 and 14), Carol Ann Roulston (#13), Eveline Shaw (#17), and Donna Wilson (#13).

KP winners were Carol Ayley on #7 and Jean Wharton on #16.  The par 5 pot (25+hcp) was shared by Margaret Forgeron (#10) and Pat Johnson (#1).

The game was followed by a great lunch at which special mention was made of Marilyn McCusker’s success last season.  Her low net score of 62 won the Dorothy Olive Franklin competition here at Crown Isle and was submitted for the Zone 6 championship – which she won.

“Tarbuck takes on Pinke.”

Sounds like a strange western movie, but it was beer and burger night at Sunnydale as both golfers shot matching 32.5s. Bob won on a countback for low net honours, followed by Mike Turnbull half a stroke behind with a 33.

On the gross side Shane Robinson had 38 and Damon Gaudet 39. Long drive #1 Mitch Carr Hilton. Silvio Alberti won the KP and for closest to the pin on #3 he won a head cover and cash plus a pot of gold.

Randy Bennett won a shirt from Sunnydale clubhouse for his KP 2nd shot #8. Long putt went to Bob Tarbuck on #9 thanks to the Whistle Stop. Ed Tanner won a set of darts from Pacific Western breweries for most sportsmanlike round of golf – better luck next Wednesday.


Sign up 5:30 for 6 p.m. shotgun.
