“It was a great day out there on the course,” said Kathy Hardy of Iroquois, “just a little warm.”
The 70 players who took part in the 2015 Valley League Competition on Sunday, August 16, hosted by the Iroquois Golf Club, might consider that a bit of an understatement. The five clubs had to play through some very hot and steamy conditions all day long.
When play ended, the host club Iroquois had put up a good fight, but lost to Summerheights by a slim 16 strokes. With this victory, Summerheights took its second Valley League title in a row.
Summerheights took a total of 860 strokes, followed closely by the Iroquois players with 876 strokes. The team from Cedar Glen came in third with 886, followed by Prescott with 893, while the Morrisburg contingent rounded out the teams with a score of 906.
The Ladies Valley League teams are made up of 13 players plus one spare. There are three players in each flight of A-B-C-D, and the team must count the best two scores in each flight, plus one seniors score, to get the team total.
The A flight was won by Robyn Campbell, from Summerheights, with a score of 74, while the low net in A flight went to Sarah Smith of Iroquois with a 65 net.
Low gross in B flight was shot by Sue Sloan, from the host club Iroquois, and the net honours was won by Elise Muir of Cedar Glen.
C flight low gross was Cathy Wright from the Prescott club with a 98, while Lynda Lafleche from Summerheights had a 69 net.
D flight low gross of 104 was shot by Marie Beckstead of Cedar Glen and the net honours went to Betty McDermid of Iroquois with a net of 69.
Helen Greer of Summerheights fired an 87 to take the seniors gross and Morrisburg’s Linda Barclay took took the net honours with a 69. The spare from Summerheights was low with an 88 gross and Cedar Glen’s Janet Levere took net honours with a 70.
In 2016, Prescott will host the Ladies Valley League. This will also be the 45th anniversary of the League.
