The Niagara-on-the-Lake Golf Club’s Friday night Couples League capped off its season last week by naming Joe and Victoria Interisano as Couple of the Year.

The award is a reflection of the winners’ dedication, positive attitude and ongoing participation, said Cal Cochrane, one of the league’s organizers.

Special recognition also was paid to Janice and Jim McMacken, whose stellar play found them in the winners circle for a remarkable nine of their 15 appearances this year.

The season-ending nine-hole scramble featured some excellent scoring as well. Todd and Suzanne Watson teamed with May Chang and Kevin MacLean to shoot 2-under 34 and take first place.

In second by retrogression also with 34 were Shelly and Brock Sansom, Deborah and Grant Williams.

Lenore and Rick Janes, Bonnie Lamourie and Ron Newman were third with 36, followed by Susan and Gord Horne, Carroll and Ted Baker, also 36.

Closest to the pin on #4 were Grant Williams and Patty Garriock, while Larry Blight and Suzanne Rate sank the longest putts on #8.

Club champ James Grigjanis-Meusel and Jim Rye both shot 2-over 38 to win low gross in Thursday’s men’s league. Stephen Levy and Dave Gagne were tops in Stableford scoring with 24 points.

Other winners: John Reynolds (long drive #1), Rye (closest to pin #2), Patrick Craig (closest to pin #4), Randy McCartney (long putt #6) and Doug Dineley (closest to pin #9).

Gross skins went to Mark Derbyshire (#1), Grigjanis-Meusel (#5) and Glen Murray (#7). Net skins:Rye (#3), Rai Lauge (#4), Kurt Hamm (#5) and Don Stewart (#9). Ross Smith made a 12-footer to win $70 in the putting contest.

The women’s 18-holers wrapped up league play Tuesday with a cumulative score game. The team of Cathy Murray, Marie Ellison and Cathy Taylor won with a total of 137. Carolyn Porter was closest to the pin on #9.

In the Tuesday WOOFs league, Don Allen was top dog again, with an even-par 36. Low net went to Russ Phipps (32) and John Reynolds won the hidden hole with a birdie on #6. Todd Watson was closest to the pin on #4.
