Windy day for Glacier Greens lady golfers

Tuesday, June 9 and another fantastically beautiful morning for the 25 women playing golf at Glacier Greens.

The wind played havoc with the high shots to the green and messed about with the KPs, but despite that Lori Cameron took the honours on #4 and Monica Rim was the close shot for #12. The longest putt on #18 was won by Lynne Pringle.

The game for the morning was one using the shots on the odd numbered holes only and subtracting half your handicap. A nightmare for those that forgot their third grade math! However, despite the take away with borrowing the winner, with a 29.0 was Rosslyn O’Rourke, followed by Janet Edwards with 29.5 and Lynne Pringle with 29.5. Brenda Livingstone scored 30.0, Gene Renaud 31.5,Twylla Graff 32.0, Tobi Norris 33.0 and Lori Cameron 34.0.

Welcome to new members Twylla Graff and Monica Rim. They both show great promise and we are so glad to have them aboard.

Card Game

On Tuesday, May 26, the Glacier Greens ladies were out in almost full force to play the annual Card Game. It’s a team game with three on each team with handicaps as close as possible.

The players are designated as King, Queen and Ace and the net score is discovered by a card on the following tee. Add up the scores and start clapping.

First place team of Leslie Hauser, Janet Edwards and Monica Kim scored a net 67, second place with a score of 68 included Tobi Norris, Wendy Dowe and Lynne Pringle. Last but not least in third position was the team of Marg Rushton, Marie Israel and Lori Campbell. And that’s not all; KP#4 won by Lynne Pringle and KP #15 won by Wendy Dowe is proof that good eyesight is a bonus in this game. Rosslyn O’Rourke took the prize for longest putt on #18.

It was a grand day for golf and lunch on the patio where several people helped put together goodie bags for the Ladies’ Open on June 13. We hope to see you there.
