From the desk of Sandi Reed comes word 67 players from clubs up and down the Island turned out for the 23rd annual Qualicum Foods Ladies Senior Amateur Tournament at Qualicum Beach Memorial Golf Course, many of them sporting fashionable head wear.
The event was played out last Friday under warm and sunny conditions.
According to Sandi, Deb Hutchinson of Storey Creek was the Gross winner with 82 — the final was decided by a sudden death playoff on the par three hole number 9, where a gallery awaited the result.
Hutchinson, said Sandi, “sent her drive onto the green, and Bille Chang from Mount Brenton ended up a little short, but her second shot was not far from the pin.
“However, Deb’s second shot gently rolled into the hole for a birdie to win the playoff.”
Worth noting is that this was Deb’s fourth win in a row at this event. — James Clarke
