Wet weather taking its toll on golfers

Par for the Course: A round-up of action from Comox Valley golf courses

 

A few Tuesday Crown Isle ladies with webbed feet played through the torrential downpour last week and the rest were tucked safely in the Timber room having coffee.

Winners were: KPs – Rosemary Smith #12 and Pat Johnson #4. Par 5s – Janet Phillips. Birdies – Carol Ayley and Rosemary Smith.

Hope some of you got out to watch the B.C. Juveniles under 16 tournament last week at Crown Isle. The brother-sister team of Alex and Sumie Francois from Shaughnessy topped the leader board for the boys and girls. Abigail Rigsby was our best Comox Valley girl.

Speaking of Abigail Rigsby, she won the Crown Isle ladies club championship low gross and Janet Phillips won the low net.

Thanks to Val Dingwall for coordinating the season’s interclub play with Crown Isle, Storey Creek, Myrtle Point, Glacier Greens, Sunnydale and Comox. Comox won  the finals at Myrtle Point.

Lots of ladies enjoyed the successful Nine and Wine last Wednesday. Winners were Sharon Hastings, Dorothy Turchansky and Tracy Kennett.

The last Nine and Wine for the season is Sept. 18. Call the pro shop to register at 250-703-5031. All ladies welcome.

Wet night

On a rainy evening, 35 stalwart men showed up to golf in the weekly Tuesday night mens’ league at Glacier Greens.

The scramble selected for the players was to tee off the red tees. This proved a difficult selection, particularly for the long ball hitters as several tried to drive the #1 and #8 holes and clear the trees on #2.

When the last putt had been holed, it was the Mike Gibbs’ team of Dan Dupuis, Nick Mykitiuk, Bernie Golding and Reg Meeres taking first place with -7. Second with -6 were Bill Girard, Phil Ball, Wayne Mabee, John Lahey and Greg Conway. Third on a CB over three other teams were Ted Sauve, Russ Wreggett, Leo Lamothe, Rod Verchere and Russ Parker.

Hole prize winners: #1, sponsored by Chad’s West Coast Grill, Chuck Kennedy; #2, A-Lure Barber Shop, Chuck Kennedy; #3, Bill Kelly Pro Shop, Rod Verchere; #4, Scott Fraser/Royal LePage Real Estate, Russ Wreggett; #5, Yiamas Greek Taverna, Doug Messer; #6, Jo Klassen’s Grill, Henry Bonde; #7, Griffin Pub, Keith Ross; #8, Billy D’s Pub, Bob Edwards and #9, Brian McLean Chev, Buick, GMC, Fred Williams.

The wrap-up event for the season will be held Tuesday, Sept. 17. For the regular members get your entries in early as entry spots are limited.
