Eaglecrest ladies take to the links with gusto in tourney

When the Eaglecrest Ladies 9-Hole Club played out the final of their Match Play competition recently, the decision came down to the last hole.

A team competition with an alternate shot format, the final saw Joan Kartz and Anne Albertini up against Myrt McGraw and Elizabeth Marsland.

Although Marsland “showed a nasty tendency to put shots in sand bunkers for her partner to retrieve,” after eight holes the teams were equal, but with a lost ball on the ninth from the Kartz and Albertini team, it was McGraw and Marsland winning a close one.

In other action, the Eaglecrest Ladies Club’s “18-holers,” competed on June 19 and 26 for the Bea Copeland Trophy, an eclectic competition where players record only their better score for each hole. The results are based on net scores, with three handicap divisions. Ties were decided by retro count.

Division 1 (handicap 0-22) was won by Kathy Hiebert (net 64), followed by Diane Johnston (net 66-retro). Div. 2 (handicap 23-29) went to Dale Marshall with a 62, followed by Elly Smith at 64, and the Div. 3 (handicap 30+) winner was Lillian Houg at 62, with Elizabeth Marsland (63) second.
