Small golf critic has a big sting

Unfortunately one golfer had to quit her game when she had a run in with a hornet

It was a rather hot night for a game of golf on Aug. 27. However, we had 17 ladies sign up and start out.

Unfortunately one golfer had to quit her game when she had a run in with a hornet on hole #7. It may not be as big as a bear or alligator (like some courses have) but it carries a big punch and even the bravest have to call it off sometimes.

The rest of us made it through the nine holes and into the clubhouse unscathed.

The winners for this week were: Flight #1: Lois Vandamme – low gross, long putt; Tanya Desjarlais – low net, KP; Carol Hindle – long drive, long drive in two.

Flight #2: Jan Johnston – low gross; Joan Slingsby – low net; Joan Streadwick – long drive; Madeline Klassen – long putt, long drive in two.

Flight #3: Korinne Isbister – low gross, long drive, long drive in two; Reita Vandenborre – low net; Abbey Bates – long putt.

Lois and Reita owned up to their lost ball in the water and received a replacement one. Joan Slingsby had the longest putt for all flights and also had the least putts for the game. Joan also got to change three hole scores on the Ringer Board (well done).

Stephanie Turner had the most putts and Joan Streadwick was the closest to the windmill. Only one KP this week. The balls were flying far in the hot air but not always in the right direction. The Deuce and Birdie Pots continue to grow as no winners this week.

Our sponsors for the week were: Pharmasave, Home Hardware, Hop’N’Hog, Painted Turtle, Century 21 Realty, Wells Gray Inn, MacLennan Farms, and O’Bryans Café.


See you all next week. We will have our final Ladies Night on Sept. 17, so we can hold our annual general meeting.
