Another o-Kaye Eaglecrest Club Championship

Qualicum Beach club wraps up two-day tournament

The Eaglecrest Golf Club Championship weekend was blessed with perfect golfing weather for both days.

In the Ladies’ competition, after the first day’s play the three top contenders were Jacque Bater with 85, Lois Kaye also at 85, and Wendy Paulsen with 88.

In Sunday’s match, Paulsen played an inspired front nine for 37. All three players were in close competition through the back nine. An impressive chip-in from Kaye sealed her victory, giving her a total score of 171 and her second consecutive Ladies’ Championship. The Ladies’ Club Low Net trophy went to Bev Fedorak with a net total of 140.

Jacque Bater and Wendy Paulsen tied at 172, and after a retro count, which awards the player who held the lead most recently before the last hole, Bater was declared winner of the Flight A handicap group, with Paulsen as low net winner at net 142. The Flight B low gross prize went to Barbara Pye at 191, while Carol Scott was low net winner with 143. In Flight C Michelle Kraeling was declared low gross winner after a retro count, with a total score of 214, and Jean Peterson took low net honours at 142 (also retro).

The results of the men’s championship competition were less retro-prone, and the three first-day leaders retained their respective positions after the second round.

Indeed, the rounds of 74 and 74 that gave Bryan Munro the Club Champion’s cup would have been very hard to beat. Although Rick Sing offered a challenge to Rick Christensen by equalling his second-day score of 81, Christensen’s first-day lead guaranteed him the Runner-Up trophy, with a two-day total of 158. The over-all low net winner was John Johnston at net 133, with Dennis Kaye as runner-up at net 136.

In the men’s Flight A, Rick Sing took the low gross honours with 161, and low net went to Neil Sadauskas with net 137. Flight B low gross winner was Chad Burnett with 170, while Pete Abley’s net 136 took low net. Pat Kerr was Flight C leader at 179, with Bill Stoddart as low net winner at 141.

At the celebration dinner and presentation following the second game, trophies were also presented to the winners of the Ladies Nine-Hole championship, which was played over the previous two Wednesdays to allow members to participate in both competitions. The 2017 Niners champion is Barb Parry, with a two-day total of 95, while the Low Net trophy went to Elizabeth Marsland, net 69.
