Great golf week, the best, in a long while. The His ‘N Hers was a nice event, attracting 40 players, including, a Grand Father/Grand Daughter team of Kevin Waite and Brittany.
The Low score, in the Alternate shot event was recorded by Sandy Anderson and Audrey Bryar (87), edging former winners Cynthia and Danziel Rosario by one stroke. The Northern Savings partnership of Bill Nicholls and Josie Lam were very sharp and took a five shot victory, with Carol and Mark Bryant in second place. Alain and Margaret Chan finished a half stroke back in third spot. This was another trip to the prize table for Josie Lam, as she partnered with Janet Sheppard in the Ladies event in Terrace and was a member of a winning team in Kitimat.
In Ladies Day golf last Tuesday, Cynthia Rosario topped the Gross with a 49. In the special scoring competition, involving a calculation of strokes and putts, Judy Fraser was the winner. Closest to the Pin awards went to Patrizia Stevens and Jean Eby. Long Drivers were Jean Eby, Carol Schaeffer and Annette Richards., while the Long Putt was sunk by Rita Danielle.
Men, playing on Wednesday afternoon were entertained by the SnowBirds practice, but managed to play some fine golf. Layne Young shot an even par 70 for Low Gross by six strokes over Ian Robinson. Andrew Schaeffer recorded the Low Net at 62, followed by John Hunt. Danny Wright had his irons working, taking two K.P. awards, as did Layne Young, Trevpor Clouthier and Robert McDonald. Chris Troutman hit the Long Drive on the 18th hole.
This weekend Junior golfers will play a two day, 36 hole tournament.As well as young local golfers will compete for the Club Championship.The field, while likely small in numbers, will be high in energy as golfers from the four Northern courses gather in Prince Rupert.
