On Saturday, September 16, 2017 (under sunny conditions), the Gold River Ladies Club hosted our 25th annual “Jewel of the Isle” Golf Tournament.
56 ladies from all over the Island and one from Saskatchewan participated. We are very pleased to announce that Holly Sanders of Glacier Greens Golf Club in Comox was the winner of the Low Gross Trophy (sponsored by Gold River Builders) with a score of 76. The low net winner with a net score of 67 (sponsored by Cypress Creek Logging Ltd.) was Nancy Booth, also from Glacier Greens Golf Club.
Our Hole-In-One prize was not won this year, but our sincere thanks to the sponsors for this. They were: Gold River Golf & Country Club, Get West Adventures, the Ridgeview Motor Inn and the Ridge Roadhouse.
The low handicap KP was won by Pat Peden (Sunnydale) sponsored by GR Auto Parts Plus and the high handicap KP was won by Michelle Palmer (Storey Creek), sponsored by Reliable Auto Body. The low handicap long drive was won by Holly Sanders (Glacier Greens), sponsored by HB Energy and the high handicap long drive was won by Michelle Palmer (Storey Creek), also sponsored by HB Energy.
