Sports: Planche is big winner in men's golf kickoff
The golf season is in full swing at the NOTL Golf Club.

Ron Planche was the big winner as men's league play resumed at the Niagara-on-the-Lake Golf Club last week.

Planche tied for first with Johnson Hu and Steven Levy, accruing 21 points each under the modified Stableford scoring format.

A birdie on the fifth hole proved very valuable as it won Planche a $43 gross skin and a $66 net skin.

Other gross skins went to Ted Wiens (#1) and Michel Trudeau (#2). Net skins were won by Trudeau (#2) and Stu Young (#8).

Reigning men's club champion James Grigjanis-Meusel lit up the field with a low gross score of 3-under 33. He also was closest to the hole on #9. Rob Haylor won closest to the pin on #4.

WOMEN'S LEAGUE: The foursome of Susan Gagne, Patty Garriock, Sue Sherk and Janice White earned the best team score with a 93 in the 18-hole ladies league kickoff.

The special "Pink Ball" contest was won by Ginny Green, Lisa Allen, Carolyn Porter and Mary Powers.
