Betty Divok of Rockway Vineyards and Louise Robitaille of Niagara-on-the-Lake teamed up Tuesday to post the best score in the NOTL Golf Club’s Women’s Invitational  tournament.

Golfers from across Niagara competed in the popular bi-annual event, which culminated in an outdoor awards presentation and luncheon near the 18th hole.

The twosomes played nine holes of aggregate team score and nine holes of alternate shot.

Other low net winners were: Flight A: Cindy Wegg and Barb Smith (first); Leah Taggart and Cathy Long (second); Michelle Fraser and Kim Eros (third).

Flight B: Martha Cruikshank and Lisa Allen (first); Pam Kilmer and Anne Trimble (second); Carolyn May and Sharron Marlow (third).

Flight C: Tillie Lopinski and Sandra MacDavid (first); Lea Jensen and Saundra Barreca (second); May Chang and Linda Anderson-Kozik (third).

Tuesday was a busy day as the men’s WOOFs league also played its nine-hole summer scramble, with 17 teams competing.

The foursome of Rob Yamamoto, Bill Garrioch, John Read and Dean McCann carded a spectacular 6-under 30 to edge out several teams by two shots.

Second-place teams, all with 4-under 32, were: John Sobil, Neville da Silva, Charlie Rate, Norm Kerr and Rob Lowe; Ted Wiens, Jim Cosgrove, Don Stewart and Randy McCartney; John Reynolds, Peter Danaskas, Ted Baker and Brock Sansom; Harry Huizer, Bill Jenkins, Jack Hanna and Gary Wasylo; Rick Janes, Russ Phipps, Steve Ferley and Bill Farnell.

On Thursday, July  7, in men’s league play Mark Derbyshire  won low gross while Al Bannister and Lou Puglisi  were tops in Stableford points scoring.

Other winners: longest putt: Jim Meszaros (#2), John Kozik (#5); longest drive W.K. Smith (#3); closest to the pin: Ricky Watson (#4), Puglisi (#9); closest to 150 marker #8: Rob Patterson.

Neville Da Silva and Alan Robb won net skins while Derbyshire, Watson and Robb claimed gross skins.
