Golf: WOOFs celebrate their season finale

More than 70 golfers hit the links on a misty, foggy Tuesday morning to compete in the Niagara-on-the-Lake Golf Club WOOFs league final shootout.

Teams of four scrambled around for nine holes then, over pints and burgers, shared memories of the putts they missed and the almost-birdies that got away.

Everyone played from the “forward” gold tees and the foursome of Peter Falconer, Ross Smith, Ian Rutherford and Bill Garriock lit it up, coming home in 5-under 31, which took top spot on the podium.

The teams of Glen Murray, Oleh Hrycko, Terry Catney and Rick Schulz along with Jeff Jacques, Richard Cook, Earl Shore and Peter Chilibeck were next, just one shot behind at -4.

Prior to the morning’s festivities, league co-ordinator Bill Katrynuk announced the winners of the WOOF’s Top Dog and Golden Dog trophies.

Cam Calder, joking that he earned the prize due to his longevity, was Golden while Grant Williams was crowned Top Dog.


In the final week of the 18 hole women’s league on Sept. 28, club champion Yolanda Henry was once again the low gross winner, shooting 87. Martha Cruikshank was next with 81 and Cathy Murray shot 93.

Low net winners were Henry (74), Murray (75), while Marie Ellison, Kim Hrycko and Lorraine Busbridge all at 77.

The day’s competition was also divided into flights.

In the Brown flight, Hrycko was first, followed by Christine Earl. In Green, Cruikshank edged out Murray and in the Red flight, Busbridge was first, followed by Carolyn Porter. Earl also recorded a birdie three on the seventh hole.
