Special thanks to Perry, Deb and anyone and everyone else that took part in the Gold in the Net Golf Classic on Saturday to benefit the Aaron C. Cornwell Memorial Scholarship fund. Always a great time! Hopefully we will see you there next year! Someone commented about the price of the tournament - I certainly respect some things are too expensive for some people - keep in mind that if you went golfing at Morningstar 18 holes of Golf plus a cart would run you about $95.00. So $85.00 to golf in the tournament is actually a DEAL. Paying that much for golf isn't my style too often - but you really do get what you pay for at Morningstar - it's a great challenge and a very nice course that I enjoy playing on once or twice a year. The Alberni Golf Club is more my style in the end though!

Speaking of the Alberni Golf Club - here's the latest update from Gerry Fagan

What is going on with the weather? For the second time this season the Sunday Men’s Club was a washout. Not to worry the Alberni Chrysler/ Toyota two man best ball will be held this coming Sunday May 22nd. It’s the long weekend but the weather promises to be much improved.
 The format is two man teams with the best net and best gross counting on each hole. The shotgun is set to go off at 8 AM. Please try to be there no later than 7:45. Register with your partner in the Pro Shop or as a single and Bruce will find you a partner. You can also sign up by phoning, 250-723-5422 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting            250-723-5422      end_of_the_skype_highlighting.

Congratulations go out to Junior member, Greg Palmer playing at Arbutus Ridge May 13th & 14th. On the Friday he came in with an outstanding 73, followed on Saturday by a 68. The field consisted of 72 players from across Canada, including National Junior Team Members. Greg’s 4th. place finish earned  him a spot on the Canadian Junior Boys Team. Way to go Greg. Jeffrey Dagg also playing in the event shot 80 & 73 to  place 33rd. in the field.

Due to soggy conditions the Stableford was cancelled on Monday, but will be held next Monday May 23. There will be a shotgun start at 8:30, although the early birds who wish to enter the competition may tee off earlier. If you compile 36 points which is right around your handicap you will automatically win $35 in club money.  The more points you rack up the more you can win. For those who may be off their game be sure to turn you score cards in as there will be several draws each day.

There will also be closest to the pin prizes of sleeves of balls, #2 will be for men with Handicap of 15 or higher, #4 will be for all the women, #13 for men with handicaps lower than 15 and #17 will be for all competitors. The cost remains the same as other years at $20.

The new score cards are working out well, thanks to Houle Printing for donating them.
