Chevaliers win St. Ignatius scramble

The annual St. Ignatius Church and School Golf Scramble earlier this month raised nearly $6,000 for the school and church development fund.

Nineteen foursomes took part in the scramble on March 18 at the North Sound Golf Club.

The winning team was The Chevaliers, with a net score of 53.5: Beth Biega, Nick Leighton, Mark Hay and Paul Arbo. Second place was Island Surprise, with a net score of 54.2: Chris Weaver, Alison Gregg, Dan Andersen and Dermot Troy. Third place was IMS-Ogier, with a net score of 55.9: Karl O’Reilly, Cary Marr, Justin Savage and Paul Murphy.

The champions each earned $150 gift cards courtesy of Kirk Freeport, while the second and third place teams won gift cards from the pro shop.

Closest to the pin winners were Sebastien Guilbard on hole nine and Dan Anderson on hole 13. Each received $100 worth of gift cards.

Longest drive winners were Nisha Bismallah for the ladies on hole two and Jeff Johnstone for the men on hole 12. Both won watches courtesy of Kirk Freeport.

Alex Cowan won the putting contest, leaving his 70 foot putt just 8.25 inches from the hole. He earned a $200 gift card from the pro shop.

Island Heritage Insurance was voted best dressed team, in a unanimous decision by the five judges. The Consolidated Water team finished 19th with the highest score of the day, earning each player a free round of golf courtesy of the North Sound Golf Club.

David Seerman, Ronan Guilfoyle, Mark Hennings and John Collins split the jackpot for correctly guessing that 23 golf balls would end up in the water at the fifth hole. Richelle Woodcock won the jackpot for being the nearest to predict the worst team score on the day.

She guessed 70.01 just missing the actual highest score of 70.0.
