Rose Holkestad added her name to the 2011 Honour Roll at the Prince Rupert Golf Club, winning the Ladies Club championship following a spectacular weekend for the 36 hole event.

Holkestad, winner of many events on her own and with husband, Brian, trailed Cynthia Rosario by four strokes after the Saturday round, but shot  a fine  89 on Sunday, giving her the victory by two strokes over Rosario. Defending champion, Janet Sheppard, finished in third place and was awarded Championship Flight Gross honours, with Carol Bryant taking Gross in the First Flight.

In the Net competition, Andrea Pollock enjoyed a fine weekend, taking Overall Net. Joanne Sylvester was Net winner in the Championship Flight and Kim Sugiyama in the First Flight.

There are no results to report from the flooded out weekly events, of last week, but we are very optimistic this week as golfers prepare for the Duffers Tournament.

Entries will be accepted all week, for the Grand Daddy of Prince Rupert golf events.

The Duffers Tournament was the first competition played on the Centennial Course,  celebrating the opening of the facility in 1969.

The two day tournament is open to all Men and Women golfers, in the area, featuring a Modified Scoring Flight for players, who do not have an Official Golf Handicap. In addition to 36 holes of golf, players will enjoy a Buffet Dinner on Saturday evening.
