An early birthday present for ROSEMARY CLAYTON of Pender Island!!
What a day for Rosemary; not only did she record her first Hole-In-One on #17, but held the trophy high at competition’s end as the 2017 NET CHAMPION with a Net Score of 60.
Our congratulations to all the players, and a huge thank you to the Pender Island ladies who once again surpassed all expectations of hosting a great BBQ on the Thursday evening at Janet Ellis’ home; to Donna Smyth for coordinating all aspects of the tournament, and to all those ladies who billeted players; and the volunteers.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!
With enthusiastic support from participants, the NET Tournament at Pender Island on July 14th was chosen to celebrate CANADA’S 150th BIRTHDAY.
A sea of red and white could be seen throughout the course as the ladies dressed appropriately for the occasion. Flags and colourful boxes were placed on each tee box, with questions to test players’ knowledge of current and historical CDN, B.C., and Zone personalities and/or events.
After lunch, everyone enjoyed a slice of the beautiful cake donated by THRIFTY FOODS at Broadmead.
