Paul Chapman led the field in the NOTL Golf Club men's league on July 1, totalling 24 under the modified Stableford scoring system.

Jim Sifton was right behind with 22, and Warren Tutton and Jim Ricci tied for third with 21 points each.

Reigning men's open champion James Grigjanis-Meusel continued his dominance this season, winning low gross with a 2-under 34.

Birdies earned Rai Lauge (#1), Ron Newman (#2) and Jeff Jacques (#3) $67 each in gross skins. Lauge and Newman also added $43 in net skins on the same holes. John Kozik scooped the prize money wiith his birdie on #6. 

Joe Interisano (#4) and Rick Blouin (#9) took closest to the pin honours.

Tuesday WOOFs: Mike Eagen and Jim McMacken shared low gross as each carded a 2-over 38 in WOOFs league play on June 29. Jim Ricci was net winner with 33. Hidden hole winners were Don Allen, Glen Murray and Ted Wiens, with birdies on #6.

After a measurement, it was determined Eagen and Cal Cochrane were close to the pin on #4. Peter Falconer scooped the $50 prize in the 50/50 draw.

Women's leagues: Two foursomes – Trish Anthony, Margot Hickson, Sharon Allen and Barb Werner, and Maureen Dickson, Penny Green, Suzanne Rate and Helen McCallum – tied for first with a 5-over 41 in nine hole women's league competition on June 29.

The group of Judy Cardiff, Linda Williams and Charlotte Kainola were next with 44.

Our extreme weather played havoc with the 18 hole women's league the past two weeks.

On June 29, overbearing heat forced many of the women to limit play to just nine holes, but several birdies and chip-ins were recorded. And on July 6, a torrential downpour soaked everyone and cut short rounds.

Last week, Michele Darling (#2), Barbara Ahluwalia, Marie Ellison (#7) and Nikki Jenkins (#9) all had birds, and Darling chipped in on #7 and #8. It was a big day for Jenkins, who played a full round and broke 100 with her milestone score of 99.

This week, before the deluge, the top three low gross winners were Lisa Allen, Yolanda Henry and Cathy Murray. Low net honours went to Allen, Marlene Sibbald and Murray.
