Golfers celebrate Canada Day in style


The women of the NOTL Golf Club were colourfully dressed in all their red-and-white finery on Tuesday to celebrate Canada Day one day early. 

The women also paused to toast and remember the late Elaine Lavery, a popular, fun-loving member of the club who died last week.

Meantime, 30-time club champ Mark Derbyshire and lefty Jim McMacken shot 2-over 38 to tie for first place in Niagara-on-the-Lake men's league action last Thursday.

Jim Sifton and John Wiens earned 22 points under the modified Stableford scoring system to share top honours. Larry Mantle, Joe Mulholland and Tim Taylor were runners-up with 20 points each.

Birdies by Brodie Townley (#4) and Warren Tutton (#6) won gross skins worth $40 each. No net skins were won.

The previous week, Glenn Young shot a blistering 2-under 34 to win low gross.

His round also was good for 23 points, earning him first place on the day.

Doug Dineley and the ageless Doug Garrett, who is 93, were right behind, tallying 22 points each. Alan Dickson and John Gursky followed with 21 points apiece.

No net skins were won, but three golfers won $20 gross skins for birdies during their rounds. Stephen Warboys took two skins (#3 and #5), while James Grigjanis-Meusel (#6) and Sean Simpson (#8) scored one each.
