The 19th hole


Forty-six women welcomed the first real blast of hot summertime weather on Wednesday evening, July 3 for their weekly night sponsored by Brister Group.

The game played was “How close can you get’ with hidden scores created for each hole through a pick from the hat. The players got one point for each score away from the hidden hole score. 

Players with the least points were Paula Locke, Lise Steinburg and Sharon Annable with 18 point totals. Way off base with 356 points was Betty Lou Casselman.

A total of 80 men were out for men’s night on Thursday, July 4 with Lance Lepage leading the field with a 32 for the low gross in A flight. Charlie Moore won B flight with a 39 and Bob Barclay won C with a 44.

Net winners were Lindsay Weegar in A flight, Jim Annable in B and Gus Dickson in C.

Closest to the pin winners were Jeff Barclay on the par three fifth hole and Doug McNairn on the par three eighth.

The evening was sponsored by Harland Veinotte Transport.

The weather has finally cooperated and the remaining sod for the second green and the area around the putting surface on the third hole is in place and doing well. The sod for the  new green on the number three hole was laid several weeks ago, and has mended really well.

Morrisburg Golf Club members are now looking forward to the upcoming club championship tournament to be played the weekend of July 20-21. In August, the men will host their annual Men’s Open on Saturday, August 10 which was moved from its usual June date to August due to the green construction on the second and third holes.
