At the end of 36 holes of golf last weekend at the Prince Rupert Golf Club’s His and Hers tournament, it was no surprise who found themselves on the top of the leaderboard.
Brian and Rose Holkestad, perennial favourites in the annual couples competition, carded rounds of 77 and 79 for a two-day total of 156 to earn the low gross prize.
On the net side, Gerard and Trudy Dolan took the top spot following rounds of 82 and 84 for a 166. Playing to a 22 combined handicap, that was good for a 20-under-par 122 and the low net title.
The weather gods smiled upon the tournament with two days of sunshine, unseasonably warm weather and no rain.
Tournament organizer Carol Schaeffer was very pleased with the weekend.
“I thought it was a great success,” she said. “It was a good turnout and the weather was a bonus. Everybody said they enjoyed themselves, enjoyed the food and enjoyed the golf.
A total of 34 couples in three flights participated in the alternate-shot event, in which both partners teed off, chose the most advantageous tee shot, then took turns hitting the ball until they holed out.
The consolation prize for the tournament went to Byron and Chris Gordon. The couple tied for high gross with Thom Barker and Melissa Ash at 225, but took home the title on a countback.
