Morrisburg Golf


A small crowd of just 38 women attended the weekly Wednesday night Ladies Night on June 19, but a good time was had by all. 

After a regular evening of play with great weather finally, the ladies took their evening game to the ninth hole to decide this week’s prize winners.

The game called for the wearing of a pair of silicone oven mitts to drive and a pair of regular oven mitts for putting…a new fashion in golf clubs which completely eliminated any possibility of an interlocking grip says club captain Monique Patenaude. 

The low score winner in A flight was Brenda Stitt with a par 4 with one putt, while Barb Sheridan won B flight play with a par 4 (two putts). Lise Steinburg and Deanna Cassell tied for the win in C flight both with fives (one putt) and Helen Zeran won D flight with a five (using two putts).

High scores were carded by Lori Anne Davies with a six (two putts) in A flight, while Linda Barclay had the high in B flight with a 7 thanks to three putts.

Also three-putting was Candace Jamieson who won C flight with a nine, and Lydia Eamon who won D flight with a nine.

The evening was sponsored by Horner and Pietersma and coming up this week the sponsor is Home Hardware.
