Women’s golf in full swing

March Meadows ladies played the first round of Medal Cup and Par Day

On April 25, March Meadows ladies played the first round of Medal Cup and Par Day.

The low gross winner was Wendy Klyne and the runner-up was Corinne Floyd. Wendy was also the winner of the first round of Par Day. Low net winners were Sam Jones and Anne Wise. Corinne Floyd shot KP (closest to the pin).

March Meadows hosted the annual Grandmothers’ Tournament on May 3. It is always a huge success with March Meadows Golf Course to be one of the first of the island golf courses to be in such great shape so early in the season.

Billie Chang from Mount Brenton was low gross winner and Marg Bibby from Cottonwood was a close second. Our own Wendy Klyne was third low gross winner.

Other winners from March Meadows included Veronica Clarkson, Sam Jones, Anne Wise, Lorraine Oliver and Marion Zboyovsky.

Both KP and long drive were carded by Evelyn Cotton playing out of Duncan Meadows.

The raffle winners were Irene Creally, Billie Chang and Tina Robertson. Country Grocer from Lake Cowichan donated the hanging baskets for the raffle.

The cash from  hole-in-one was won by Tina Robertson and Cathy Brown.

May 10 saw the ladies playing the second round of the Medal Cup Competition. Sam Jones fired low gross and Corinne Floyd shot runner-up. Low net winners were Marion Zboyovsky, Lynn Girard, Christine McGovern, Irene Pearse, and Phyllis Logan.

Two birdies were carded on hole number one. Lynn Girard and  Veronica Clarkson shared the honours with Veronica narrowing out Lynn for KP
