March Meadows Senior Men’s golf report

A short sunny break during the recent deluge provided a great chance for the final men’s event of the season and the annual awards banquet.

The winners of the Iron Man Challenge (players use only two clubs and a putter), were Tom Clarkson, Ken Floyd and Jim Peterson with a net score of 32 over the nine holes.

There were other great scores and several birdies recorded. It makes Duffer O’Doul wonder why we normally carry 14 weapons in our golf bags!

After a great lunch we got down to business, presenting trophies and awards for the year.

Dale O’Connel appeared genuinely flabbergasted as he was called upon to accept one of the more sought-after trophies, the Low Net Champion. Lance Lingren was runner-up.

Floyd won the Low Gross Championship. Peterson is the new Match Play Champion and accepted the new trophy donated by Galaxy Motors. John Barger, last year’s champion was runner up.

Roy Lavigne won the Captain’s Pick Award for his long-time membership and dedication to the game, not to mention his ability to entertain us weekly with new jokes.

In the golf skill awards, Jug Kalar had the most KPs (closest to the pins), with Ray Bourassa as runner up. Most birdies was won by Dave Huggins, Kalar was runner up.

Bourassa had the most chip-ins, while Frank Fraser was second. John McCormick had the most sandy pars, with Don Cochrane in second place.

A putting average of 1.55 per hole won Jug Kalar first place while Leo Tardiff with 1.61 was second.

We would like the management, restaurant staff, pro-shop staff and the greens keepers that we appreciate their contributions to another great year of senior men’s golf.

Although some players continue to golf all year, weather permitting, our official season will begin again next April.
