The Niagara-on-the-Lake Golf Club’s women’s nine and 18 hole leagues had an awesome start to the season Tuesday, says nine holers’ captain Deborah Williams.
“Our theme was a ‘Splash of Colour’ and everyone was dressed in bright summer colours for the shotgun scramble” to open the season, she said.
Three teams tied for first place with a score of 39.
The winners were: the team of Marg Ketcheson, Peggy Larder and Rita Trudeau; the team of Cathy Saytar, Ruth Dowsett, Valerie Chubey and Janice White; and the team of Charlotte Kainola, Deborah Williams, Cathy Murray and Sue Gagne.
The sun was out and skies were clear for the morning groups. The men weren’t so lucky in the afternoon.
MEN’S RESULTS: There was some sharp shooting when the men’s Tuesday WOOFs league hit the links Tuesday afternoon, despite some wicked winds and intermittent rain.
In all, 75 players took part in the opening nine-hole scramble, said league convener Bill Katrynuk.
And playing from the farthest-forward gold tees, several teams managed to break par.
First place, with an admirable 5-under 31 went to the team of Rick Janes, Richard Cook, Cam Calder and Don Cruickshank. Second, also with 31, were Jim McMacken, Gordon Horne and Jack Hanna.
Two teams tied for third at minus-4: Glenn Murray, Earl Shore, Kerry Knapp and Don Stewart and the foursome of John Sobil, Jon Schmidt, Bill Farnell and Gary Wasylo.
