Pitch ‘n Putt: Cross is the boss at division tourney

Alberni's Janice Cross won the 18-hole division championship with a three-game total of 264.

The 18-hole ladies division championship was finalized this week by their third game total.

Pat Nicklin’s stellar game today just wasn’t quite enough to beat out Janice Cross’s consistent good play so Cross takes it with a three game total of 264. Second low gross goes to Carol Bouchard with Patsy Gauthier taking third spot with her score of 281.

Nicklin is the low net winner with a score of 200.  Sandra Simpson takes second place in the low net with 215 while Carol Hastings with her score of 223 places third low net.

In the senior division, we find Bouchard (276 strokes) in first low gross position.  Anna Marie Krikke (281 strokes) in second and Gayle Rhodes (211) in third.

Low net seniors are Sandra Simpson (215) in first place, Marie Randal (222) in second and Hastings (223) in third.  It was a  tight very competative competition.

Nicklin’s score of 87 was the score to beat today giving her the low gross honours.  Low net went to Linda Christian.

The fun part of the game was the ball sweep which gave a new ball to the member who sunk the longest putt.  On hole No. 6 for the under 26 handicappers it was Patsy Gauthier who’s steady hand and good eye took the prize.  Shannon Haggard had it for the high handicappers sinking hers on hole No. 17.

Everything seems to happen at once on the course.  It was also the day to determine the qualifiers for the handicap cup.  The final round for this competition must be played by Sept. 16.  The line-up will be posted in the ladies lounge for those that qualified.

The “B” Team will be having a home game on the Sept. 23 and needs more players.  Contact Carol Bouchard if you can come out and play.

The “C” Team  will be playing at Arrowsmith on Sept. 24.

Solheim Cup players will be on deck this Friday (17th) here at home.  Format will be a Stableford with an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start.

Any questions?  Call Shirley Goodman.

The Zone 6 – four ball net was held at Morningstar over the weekend.

The Alberni team of Sandra Simpson and Olga Kanigan placed third low net.  Kudos to them.

Nine-hole division

A: Division.  Nancy Clayton not only had the low gross score of the morning but also tied Lois Robinson with low putts.

Marta Williamson was in with the low net.

B Division.  June Parks tallied up the low gross placing with Lorraine Wilson taking low net and Yvette Pedersen taking low putts.

Betty Adair had a sweet little chip-in on No. 12.  Not just one, not two, but three ladies had pars on No. 17; Gwyn Bowen, Williamsen and Robinson.

Hole No. 13 was pretty popular today as well with three more players mastering it; Wilson, Marilyn Merwin and Clayton(who also parred No. 11).

A busy day on the links with good results.
