Weather starts cool then warms up for Crown Isle Ladies

Early morning blustery weather gave way to sunny skies for Crown Isle Ladies’ Tuesday game of Nassau.

The winners: Front nine low net 1st Gwen Rypien, 2nd Karen Currie. Back nine low net 1st Jean Wharton, 2nd Anne Sands.

First low net 18 holes was a tie between Gwen Rypien and Jean Wharton. Jean, who had an awesome game, also won the Dorothy Olive Franklin tournament with the money raised going to junior golf.

KPs: Carol Ayley and Mathilde Schneider. Par 5s: Judy Aldcroft and Audrey Clark. The birdie pot was ravaged by Raelene, Jeannie, May, Audrey, Gwen, Mathilde and Iris.

Kudos to Dee Horie, Val Dingwall, Katy Macaulay and Carol Ayley for admirably representing the Crown Isle Ladies’ Club in the North/South Challenge at Royal Colwood and Cowichan golf clubs. The North Island has won this event five of the last seven years, but this year the South took the honours.

Make sure that you take some time between May 4-8 to watch the golfers who are trying to qualify for the PGA Tour at the Qualifying School being held at Crown Isle.

The Ladies’ Nine and Wine with golf, appys, wine, prizes and tons of fun is May 27. Register at the pro shop at 250-703-5031.

Welcome to new members Elizabeth Buchacher, Charlene Foster, Sue Fulkerth, Marie Knowles, Jeannie McInnes, Barbara Morris, Evie MacDonald, Cathy Nelson, Rhonda Ryan and Gail Soliski.
