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.
