On Monday last week the club had our Past Presidents Tournament. There were 12 teams of four players, each led by a past president. Dixon Kenny’s team won with a net 50 and the teams led by Hal Yardley and Peter Alexander tied for second place with a net 51.

Gorgeous day for Ladies Day - the sun brought out 16 ladies to play golf. We played a regular game of golf and at the end played poker with our score cards. 

There were a few full houses and a few straights but Luanne McCollum won the game with five of a kind. We had three chip ins as well - Olga Korinek chipped in on 5, Denise Anderson chipped in on 4, and Lucille Hendry on hole 1.  

Men’s Day this past Wednesday was played under blue skies, but the wind made it interesting. 

In the low handicap group Al Tanner was the low gross winner with a score of 84, and low net was won by Frank Gregg with 68. In the high handicap group Gerry Nittel was the low gross winner with a score of 98, and low net was won by Varley Bunn with 69. Don Switzer hit the green for the KP. 

The pool winners were Al and Frank for low handicap, and Gerry and Dick Sharples for the high handicap.

The Ladies Amateur is this Saturday, August 27. 

Get your application in.

Until next week, happy golfing!
