With a round of golf and a banquet, the March Meadows Senior Men have wrapped up another fun-filled golf season in Honeymoon Bay.

“We had a good year, and the barrel was only won one time,” captain Jug Kalar said.

The barrel was won August 2 by Clark Ferguson. The barrel was set up in honour of local golfer Ron Gerard, who died last year. For one dollar, senior men can take a shot at the barrel, located at hole 5 1/2. Half of the pot goes to the winner, and the other half goes to the grounds crew.

This year’s totals

Low gross – Jug Kalar at 160, followed by Earl LaForge with 163.

Match play – Jug Kalar, followed by John Leach.

Low net – Ron McGovern at 138, followed by Bob Vessey at 141.

Putting – Jug Kalar (1.54) and Daryl Proulx (1.61).

Most birdies – Earl LaForge (12), John McCormick (11).

Most KPs (closest to the pins) – Jack Ringheim (4) and Earl LaForge (3).

Chip-ins – Ray Lavigne (5) and John White (4).

Most sandy pars – Jim Peterson (5) and Daryl Proulx (4).

Captain’s choice – Mike Tuck, for attitude and determination.

The men are set to start golfing again the last Tuesday of March.

The new captain is Frank Magrin. Co-captains for next year will be Rick Nott and John McCormick.
