The 19th Hole


The rain forced the play indoors for the annual Morrisburg Ladies Friendly on Tuesday, June 11.

While the play outdoors had to be cancelled, indoors the 53 participating women played some cards and then enjoyed a wonderful lunch.

“All in all, it turned out to be a nice day,” said Morrisburg ladies captina Monique Patenaude. “We had a chance to talk with ladies we had not seen since last year.”

Twelve golfers were in attendance from Cedar Glen, six from Iroquois, two from Summer Heights, nine from Rideau Glen and 22 from Morrisburg.

Regular Wednesday evening play on June 12 was sponsored by Cook’s Corner Debbie Dennis and saw 53 ladies playing a round.

Prizes were awarded for putting skills with Tabatha Casselman winning with the least at 11. Anne Winters and Barb McWhinnie won for the most putts, their totals not given.

Jennifer Adams dropped her shot closest to the pin on the par three 17th hole, while Shannon Casselman dropped the longest putt on the 18th hole at 25 feet.

There were a few strings attached for the ladies who participated in the weekly ladies night on Wednesday, June 6. In fact there were quite a few strings attached as each golfer was given a length of string to be used to improve their ball position.

The rules of the night allowed that the string would be used anywhere, to remove a ball from a hazard, perhaps a bunker, or out from behind a tree. Why it could even correct an incorrect putt.

Using their strings to their advantage to top the evening were Monique Patenaude with a 38 and Linda Barclay with 39 in A/B flight.

In class B/C, Gisele Hooles won with a 43, and Kitty Moore was just a string away with a 44.

The evening sponsor was the McIntosh Country Inn. 

Gord Dillabough shot a 34 to lead the men’s night field last Thursday, June 13. Donnie Mabo won B flight with a 39 while Allan Patterson was the top shooter in C with a 43. Net wins went to Kevin Duvall in A flight, Sam Harwood in B and Bob Youmelle in C.

Dropping their shots closest to the pins were John Hickman on the 14th and Mick Mabo on the 17th. 

The evening was sponsored by the Morrisburg Leader.

The weather took its toll on June 6 with just 32 golfers actually getting out to play. The night was sponsored by Jim Whelan/Sun Life Financial.

Top shooters were Lee Beaupre in A flight, Dave McClenagan in B and Bob Youmelle in C. Net winners were Steve Boucher in A, Andy Patenaude in B and Bob Desrosiers in C.

Closest to the pin  winners were Andy Patenaude on the par three fifth hole, and Tom Whelan on the par 3 seventh.

Coming up this Thursday, June 20, the men’s night sponsor is Gary’s Automotive.
