QUALICUM BEACH — Fairwinds’ Shelly Stouffer brought her A game as she grabbed top honours at the 25th anniversary of the Eaglecrest Ladies Amateur golf tournament.

Played out July 15, the silver anniversary edition of the local tourney attracted 78 players from 16 different clubs as far away as Victoria and Port Hardy.

According to Eaglecrest’s Elizabeth Marsland, eight players in the field had a handicap of less than 10.

“Given the unsettled weather of previous days, players considered themselves lucky that the rain held off until the last few holes.”

In the end, Stouffer won low gross with a score of 76, followed by defending champion Judith Hook (Morningstar) at 80, and Sally Dobler, also from Morningstar, at 81.  The net trophy went to Irene Creally of Eaglecrest with net 69; she was followed closely by Carol Ayley of Crown Isle and Dolores Appleton from Pheasant Glen at 71.

Winners of the Longest Drive contest for the three handicap groupings were Colleen McDonald (Port Alberni), Jacque Bater (Eaglecrest), and Karen Carignan (Qualicum Beach).

Closest to the Pin prizes went to Carol Ayley, Jacque Bater, and Dar Michell (Mount Brenton).
