QUALICUM BEACH — From the desk of Elizabeth Marsland comes word the Club Championships for the Eaglecrest Men’s and Ladies’ Clubs were played out Aug. 18 and 19.

The ladies’ tournament saw 30 participants, while the men’s competition had 42.

According to Marsland, at the end of the first day Kathy Hiebert, eager to reclaim the trophy that she lost narrowly last year, had a comfortable lead over her nearest contender, with a round of 84.

Margaret Waterhouse was sitting second at 91, with Diane Johnston and Wendy Paulson close behind.

“Although a troublesome bunker that led to a score of 8 on a par-3 had Hiebert worried for a short while, she maintained her lead throughout the day and finished in fine style, with a total score for the two rounds of 168. Waterhouse took second place with 181, beating Paulson by just one stroke.”

For the third consecutive year the Low Net Trophy went to Barbara Parry, whose net score was 141.

Flight A, for handicaps less then 25, was won by Waterhouse, with the low net prize going to Irene Creally at 144. Flight B winner was Lynne Smith with 202, while Cathryn Bolton at 148 took the low net.

Taking the Men’s Club title for the second time was Jordan Fraser, who grossed 156 for the two days. Runner-up was Brian Anderson at 160, followed by Dave Crowley and Brian Munro at 161. The Men’s Low Net Trophy went to John Smith, with net 135.

“A good weekend’s golf enjoyed by all, despite some challenging hole placements that one lady described as horrendous, and others far less politely,” said Marsland.
