Tom Wiley and Brock Sansom were top point-getters in NOTL Golf Club men’s league play last Thursday.

They each accrued 23 points under the modified Stableford scoring system.

Runners-up were Arthur Wosinski and James Grigjanis-Meusel, with 21 points each.

Grigjanis-Meusel continued his dominance of the men’s leader board, carding a 3-under 33. His round included an eagle 2 on the tough par 4 sixth hole.

His 300-yard drive left him less than 25 feet from the front pin placement and Grigjanis-Meusel drained his putt from the fringe.

Closest to the pin winners were John Kozik (#4) and Jon Taylor (#9).

Gross skins winners of $25 each went to Tom Goodbody (#2), Stephen Warboys (#3), Grigjanis-Meusel (#6) and Doug McCulloch (#9).

Goodbody’s birdie on the second hole also won him a $66 net skin. Other net skins went to Rob Chubey (#3) and Peter Danakas (#8).

WOOFs league: The Tuesday WOOFs league has resumed competition with 96 men participating, says co-ordinator Bill Katrynuk. Rob Yamamoto and Kevin MacLean were low gross winners this week, shooting 39, while Doug Dineley was low net with 34. Drew Porter was closest to the pin on #4 and Don Cruikshank won the hidden hole prize with a birdie on the fourth. Big money winners in the 50/50 draw were Jim Sifton ($61) this week and Mike Eagen ($66) this week.

Women’s leagues: In 18 hole women’s league play, two groups tied for top spot in Tuesday’s “shamble” format team scramble, with a total score of 90.

The winners were the grouping of Louise Robitaille, Judy Mantle and Marg Ketcheson and the team of Martha Cruikshank (with a birdie on #9), Yolanda Henry, Marie Ellison and Marilyn Cochrane.

During Tuesday's 9 hole women's league play, the challenge was to be closest to the 150-yard marker on the first hole and Sherry Gysler had the best shot.
