On Saturday, September 17, 2016 (under adverse conditions), the Gold River Ladies Club hosted our 24th annual “Jewel of the Isle” Golf Tournament.
62 ladies from all over the Island participated. We are very pleased to announce that Caroline Anderson of Cordova Bay Golf Club in Victoria was the winner of the Low Gross Trophy (sponsored by Gold River Builders) with a score of 86. The low net winner with a net score of 73 (sponsored by Cypress Creek Logging Ltd.) was Deb Hutchinson 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 Caroline Anderson (Cordova Bay) sponsored by GR Auto Parts Plus and the high handicap KP was won by Penny Wagenstein (Sunnydale), sponsored by Reliable Auto Body. The low handicap long drive was won by Marge Bibby (Cottonwood), sponsored by HB Energy and the high handicap long drive was won by Cathy Watson (Gold River), also sponsored by HB Energy.
