Jared Mines led the way in the Niagara-on-the-Lake Golf Club’s weekly men’s league last Thursday, firing a 2-under 34 to win low gross and accumulating 24 Stableford points to win that category, too.

Big shooters swooped in to grab several skins by scoring eagles on the two par 5s.

Reigning men’s open champion James Grigjanis-Meusel’s eagle-3 on the third hole won him both a gross skin and a net skin, while Wil Neufeld notched his own eagle-3 on the long par-5 fifth hole.

Jim Rye scooped a gross skin with a birdie on #9.

Other net skins (all net eagles) went to: Drew Porter (#1), Max Horning (#2), Michael Sanders (#7) and Tom Elltoft (#8).

Doug Dineley was closest to the 150 marker (#1), Neil Robinson sank the longest putt on #2, Grigjanis-Meusel bombed the longest drive on #3 en route to his eagle, while Warren Tutton (#4) and Rye (#9) were closest to the pin on the par-3 holes.

In Tuesday’s WOOFs league, Jim McMacken was tops with a 1-over 37. Low net was Al Kavanagh, with 34. Jon Schmidt’s birdie on #2 won the hidden hole and Norm Kerr was closest to the pin on #4, and also had a birdie.

Lyn Sanders shot 45 in the women’s nine-hole league on Tuesday morning to win low gross honours. Next were Cathy Saytar and Penny Green (46), and Deborah Williams and Judy Wright (48).

Williams also was closest to the 150 marker on #1, while Sally Miller won a draw for a lesson with the pro.

In last week’s competition, Linda Williams won closest to the pin on #4.

The 18-hole women’s league played a hidden holes contest last week.

When their scores on holes 1, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 13, 16 and 18 were counted, Margot Richardson had the best nine-hole total with 35.

Three women were tied for second at 36: Gayle Tanner, Brenda Bell and Chris Earl.

Cathy Murray had the fewest putts, needing just 27 over 18 holes. Tied for second were May Chang, Marie Ellison and Richardson, each with 32 putts.
