Gold River’s “Jewel of the Isle” Golf Tournament – 2015
On Saturday, September 19, 2015 (under adverse conditions), the Gold River Ladies Club hosted our 23rd annual “Jewel of the Isle” Golf Tournament.
56 ladies from all over the Island participated. We are very pleased to announce that our own ladies club member, Kathy Allison of Gold River, was the winner of the Low Gross Trophy (sponsored by Gold River Builders) with a score of 85. The low net winner with a net score of 63 (sponsored by Cypress Creek Logging Ltd.) was Janie Cox of Storey Creek 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 Grace Coulter (Comox) 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 Kathy Allison (Gold River), sponsored by HB Energy and the high handicap long drive was won by Michelle Palmer (Storey Creek), also sponsored by HB Energy.
