Golf: Women hand out the hardware

As fall rolls in, the golf season is winding down and that means trophy season is gearing up.

The Niagara-on-the-Lake Golf Club’s 9 hole women’s league handed out some of its hardware Monday.

Helen McCallum won the B flight trophy for a competition played earlier this month and the Carmichael Trophy for nine-hole low net medal play.

Deborah Williams was the winner of the Gretchen Ormston Memorial Trophy for low gross score in the A flight competition.

The Joy Nelles Trophy, for performance in low-net competitions, was Charlotte Kainola.

On Tuesday, the 18 hole women’s league recognized the top players in the annual season-long match play competition.

Cathy Murray was the champion and Gayle Tanner was runner-up.


George Davie and Keith Dexter led the pack in men’s league play on Sept. 16, each accruing 24 points under the modified Stableford scoring system.

Runners-up were Tim Taylor, Gerry Shelly, Greg Fedoryn and Tom Wiley with 21 points each.

Current men’s club champ James Grigjanis-Meusel was where he’s been most of the season – at the top of the leaderboard, shooting an even-par 36. Former club champ Stephen Warboys was equal to the task, also coming home in even-par.

Dean McCann was the big net skins winner, scooping $200 for his birdie (net eagle) on #8. Harry Huizer (#2) and Joe Doria (#7) also had birdies and won $65 gross skins for their efforts. Peter Falconer (#4) and David Gagne (#9) were closest to the pin.

In WOOFs league competition on Sept. 14, Mark Derbyshire had low gross with a 1-over 37 and Jeff Jacques was low net (35). Don Allen won the hidden hole (#9) and Jim Panetta was closest to the pin on #4. Ross Smith won $55 in the 50/50 draw.

The WOOFers season will wind down on Oct. 5 with the annual scramble.


Some members of the club’s 18 hole women’s league travelled to Whirlpool Golf Club in Niagara Falls on Sept. 14.

Low gross winners were Martha Cruikshank and Yolanda Henry (87) and Lisa Allen (90). Low net winners were Sharron Marlow (74), followed by Cruikshank, Henry and Allen (76).

Marg Ketcheson had a chip-in on #2 and Henry birdied the par-3 #17, “an inch from an ace,” said NOTL associate pro Ricky Watson, who witnessed the feat.

Closest to the pin winners were Ginny Green (#3), Valerie Chubey (#12), Janice White (#14) and Henry’s near hole-in-one on the 17th.
