Watch out for penguins at Crown Isle

Ladies Nine and Wine on Aug. 27 will feature black-and-white look

The Crown Isle Ladies Nine and Wine on Aug. 27 will be showcased with lots of penguins. Enjoy nine holes of golf, appys, wine and prizes. Wear black and white and bring your best penguin walk and penguin joke.

Shotgun at 5:30 p.m. Register your team or individually by calling the pro shop at 250-703-5031. Congratulations to Laurie Appleyard and her Comox team who won last month’s scramble.

What a fun day the ladies club had on Tuesday playing Irish 4 Ball-a team of 4 plays holes 1-4 with 1 low net lady, holes 5-9 with 2 low net ladies, holes 10-14 with 3 low net ladies and holes 15-18 with all 4  low net ladies.

The winners: 1st low net 155 Jean McCrea, Raelene Robertson, Linda Stickney and Shirley Podovosky. 2nd low net 157 Katy Macaulay, Joanne Meyers, Audrey Clark and Donna Cunliffe.

The hot weather brought out lots of winners for the birdie pot and lots of par 5s winners  for the 25 plus handicappers.

Kudos to our Val Dingwall who won the Quality Foods 26th Ladies’ Senior Amateur Tournament at Qualicum Beach. Congratulations to Val, Dee Horie, Judy Pouilot and Katy Macaulay – they did Crown Isle proud.
