The women’s section of the Morrisburg Golf Club closed out the 2011 season Saturday, with their annual “Scramble Fun Tournament” played in perfect weather conditions.
Club captain, Lori-Anne Davies reports 45 women participated in the event which included golf, dinner and prizes.
The winners of the day of the ‘bragging trophy’ was the four-person team of Davies, Judy Laurin, Shannon Casselman and Barb Sheridan.
The day’s events included a chipping contest from 60 yards out and that was won by Laurie Dillabough who collected a barbecue donated by Jim Annable/Chevron.
Recognized for her Birdie collection for the season was Linda Barclay who canned a very solid nine birdies to win the A/B flight category. In the C/D flight, the lone birdie of the season went to Joan Larocque.
This year’s Ringer Board winner was Linda Barclay who decreased her opening round scores by 32.65 per cent. Anita Cooper was second with a 29.90 per cent improvement and Laurie Dillabough was third at 29 per cent.
On Tuesday, September 6 our senior men’s Intersectional team was at Mont Ste-Marie where they finished second behind the Mont Ste-Marie host team.
Mont Ste-Marie collected 28 points for the win, while we totalled 16. Heritage managed only four points and the Twin Rivers entry did not show up.
Lawrence Larocque and Donnie Mabo swept their matches to collect four points each in their matches (Four points were the max as there were only three teams playing). Two points each were added by Jim Jamieson, Gary Breyer, Dave MacClenaghan and Ron Lapier. Ray Baker and Charlie Moore were blanked. Bob Youmelle and Andy Patenaude, playing in the alternate positions, collected three and two points respectively.
The final men’s night of the season is scheduled for this Thursday, September 15 with Eldon Horner the sponsor. The course will be closed this Saturday for the final Men’s Day Tournament.
This Sunday the seniors will tee off at 1:30 p.m. for their fall final mixed event followed by dinner at 4 p.m.
