Low Net Champion Lillian Houg

Newcomer claims Eaglecrest Club title

First-year member Lois Kaye earns trophy in Ladies Club golf championship

Nobody was more surprised than Lois Kaye when the first-year member of the Eaglecrest Ladies Golf Club rode a strong second round to the annual club championship at the Qualicum Beach golf club.

Awards were presented during a wrap-up luncheon last week following a casual match on a pleasant fall day.

In the championship competition in August, Kaye was three strokes behind the leaders, Wendy Paulsen and Jacque Bater, tied at 85, after the first day’s play. On day two, however, she pulled away to finish with a two-round total of 175 and, as she was surprised to discover when she reached the clubhouse, the championship.

The 2016 Low Net title was won by Lillian Houg.

Paulsen, the overall runner-up, was Flight A winner in the Championship (flights being determined by handicap), with Nancy Neil taking low net. Flight B went to Bev Fedorak and Debbie Fontaine respectively, while Flight C went to Marj Behrman and Georgie Higgins.

The Lorraine Riva Trophy netted winners in three handicap divisions:

Division 1: Jacque Bater with Kathy Hiebert as runner–up; Division 2: Bev Fedorak followed by Elly Smith; and Division 3: Lori Roche, with Georgie Higgins following.

The trophy for the Most Improved Player went to Bater.

The club’s two hole-in-one winners, Lori Roche and Sonya Miller received their hole-in-one trophies.

After the presentations and a brief AGM, club captain Margaret Waterhouse handed the reins to her successor, Nancy Neil, who thanks Waterhouse for her years of service.
