Golf Report for August 9, 2016

Gabriola Golf Club

Tuesday, August 9 2016

It was a rainy day for Ladies Day. Only nine brave ladies took to the course. We played Bingo Bango Bongo for nine holes and then dried off in the clubhouse and had grilled cheese sandwiches with broccoli and bacon salads for lunch, yummy. After everyone added up the soggy cards, Carolyn Pickett was the winner with 13 points.   

It was again a sunny day to play golf on Men’s Day this past Wednesday. In the low handicap group Dave Hendry was the low gross winner with a score of 82 and low net was won by Bill Cliff with 67. In the high handicap group Dick Sharples was the low gross winner with a score of 99 and low net was won by Alex Hart with 69. Mike Shannon hit the green for the KP. The pool winners were Bill and Dave for low handicap, and Andre Lemieux and Alex for the high handicap.

On Friday our Gabriola course was more British Isle’s style with very gusty winds blowing. We had a couple of off-island guests join in, Paul Cooper and Walter Russell. Mike Garrett managed to conquer the winds with a nice net 65. Dick Sharples had a 68 for second place and third was Mike O’Rouke with a 69. The greens were in good shape but fast. Alex Hart managed a few three-putt greens to take home our monkey mascot. Three others had four-putt greens. 

Happy golfing!
