Eaglecrest ladies host Zone 6 event

Amateur-senior competition brings out some remarkable talent

From the desk of Elizabeth Marsland comes word the Eaglecrest Ladies Golf hosted the 2012 Women’s amateur/senior competition for Zone 6.

Sanctioned by the BC Golf Association and played out at the Eaglecrest Golf Club May 17-18, “several members of the Eaglecrest Ladies Club were on the honours list for the Senior (over 50) section.”

In the Senior Net competition, Sandy Plumb placed second overall with a score of 145 over the two days.

Kathy Hiebert was Gross winner in her age category, with 171, while Diane Johnson, in the next age group, placed second with a 182.

Liz Gillies, at 151, and Irene Creally, with 157, both won First Net in their respective categories.

In the Zone 6 ‘Beat the Champ’ competition, participants at their individual clubs compete against the Zone 6 Amateur champion in exchange for a small donation for Junior Golf.

According to Elizabeth, “this game involves deducting one’s worst hole score in each nine and subtracting one’s handicap, after which a magical calculation brings an equitable comparison with the score of the Zone champion, Christina Proteau.”

When the Eaglecrest Ladies played their competition on May 29, only one participant, Liz Gillies, succeeded in Beating the Champ.

 

In the same competition, division winners were Gillies followed by Dianne Johnston in Div.1; Ellie Smith and Sandra Braithwaite in Div. 2, and Lillian Houg followed by Jane McKamey and Elizabeth Marsland (tie) in Div. 3.
