A Hole in One in the Weekday Fourball!

Tom O'Connor recorded our 6th Hole in One of the season. The Ace took place on Monday at the 12th hole during the Weekday Men's Fourball. The feat was witnessed by playing partner John Elia and Norm Erickson and Ed Simmons.

The ace helped Tom and John finish in a tie for first place with Ray Northey and Brian Murdoch. Both teams had a score of net 60. Needless to say Tom won the Closest to the Pin on #12!

The Haig Results!!

This past Saturday the Men's and Women's Haig events were held.

The Women's Haig was won by Jan Pugh and Jennifer Hogg. They shot a great score of 62 which topped the field by 4 shots. There score was helped by a couple of chip in birdies! Second place went to Josette Bell and Lucy Blais who shot 66. There was a tie for third place between Ann Griffin and Barb Rogers and Lynda Lennon and Lori Sheffield. Both teams shot 67.

The Men's Haig went to the team of Bob Doyle and Brent Wiens who fired a net 63. There was a tie for the gross event between defending champions Mark Burrell and Jared Docking and Mike McGarragle and Wade Brackenbury who had one under par 71's.
There was a three way tie for second net with the teams of Craig Ferns/ Dave Sutton, Bob Nebel/ Bob Spahn and Tim Charlton/ Don Pickthall all shooting scores of 65.

Team Spirit!! - the group of Tim Charlton and Don Pickthall and John and Brian Guenther sported Japanese headbands for some team motivation. We were told that the inspiration messages were "Win" and the other said "Champions"! We have no way to confirm this!! For their sakes we hope this is true!!

Another Hole in One!

It had been a strange lull in the Hole in One activities - we did not have one for the whole month of June!

Brian Godin made his first Ace ever on Wednesday afternoon. His shot on the 12th hole was witnessed by Kevin Collins and given the heat that afternoon, the party didn't last long!

Congratulations Brian!

Oh Canada!

The Annual Canada Day fixtures on the golf calendar saw some amazing performances this year. Women's Flag Day and the Men's Better Ball took place on Sunday July 1st and the golf was as hot as the weather.

The Flag Day format lets players see how far around the Course they can go before exhausting their combined handicap and par. When you have used all your strokes, you plant your Canada Flag.
This year we had an number of players who were able to play on after 18 holes. The winner was Zona Pereira who was ale to tee of on the 2nd hole. Pamela Cooper finished 2nd by holing out her putt on the 1st and Ann Griffin set the pace early in the morning made it onto the 1st green which was good enough for 3rd place. Joanne Kajganich finished 4th and Sharon Pullam finished 5th. They also got to play down the 1st hole.

The Men's Two player Best Ball had some great individual and team performances. The winning team of Pat Scanga and Al Billington had a blistering 59 net which featured Pat shooting a round of 70 gross. There was a tie for second place between the teams of Ed Griffin /Peter Schuch and Mike Lindsay/ Ryan Trimble. Both teams shot 61. Peter shot a fine round of 74 gross. A tie for 4th place between Craig Burrell/ Pat Burrell and Mark Brown/ Stephen Stuart saw both teams shoot net 62.

The Gross Event also had a tie for low with defending champions Dave Walker/ Cam Hreljac and Jeff Sinovic/ Jared Docking both shooting 68 gross.

This year's Event had 68 players and most showed their national pride by dressing in our Nation's colours!
