It was a perfect day for the Cornwall Curling Club’s annual nine hole, best ball golf tournament today at Countryview Golf Club. The teams played a standard “scramble” format, except that the 9th hole had to be played with nine-irons only, except for the green, where a provided curling broom had to be used. Greg Groves managed to sink the putt on the first shot.

Back in the Clubhouse, after a meal of burgers and fries, the scores were tallied, with the foursome of (L-R) John and Shirley Berry, Donald Weeks, and Kimball Blanchard coming in first by a single stroke, and getting first pick of the prize table.
Next up were the closest to the pin and long drive awards.
Jean Anderson won the ladies closest to the pin (hole 2)
Brent Irving won the men’s longest drive, for hole 4
Paul Durant won the men’s closest to the pin (hole 8)
Now, back to the team prizes. There was a tied score for second place, between the Brent Irving and Greg Groves teams, with the Groves threesome, which also included Paul Durant and Derek MacEwen, winning after retrogression rules were applied.
Team Irving (L-R): George Younker, Brent Irving, Angela Sanderson, Rob Gallant
Other teams in order were the Gary O’Sullivan foursome, followed by the Chris MacDougall team, then the Bill Hope squad, and the “Most Honest” team, the Cornwall women’s club champions from last season, captained by Kim Nicholson.
Thanks to organizer Gary O’Sullivan, the prize sponsors, and the Countryview Golf Club for another great event!
Annual Golf Tournament
The forecast called for 60% possibility of showers, but by noon, it was apparent that the showers had turned into full-fledged rain, as around 50 Cornwall Curling Club members and friends made their way around the front nine of the Countryview Golf Course for their annual 9-hole, best ball, golf tournament. Those lucky enough to get an early tee-time emerged a little dryer than those who drew a later start, such as the Danny Kneabone foursome, pictured here heading to the 9th green:
Meanwhile back at the clubhouse, Golf course owner Carl Currie, under cover of the deck roof, was cooking up burgers and hot dogs for the hungry masses, closely supervised by his son Kris, along with Bob MacWilliams and Paul Neima.
Others stayed warm and dry inside the clubhouse:
Still others braved the covered part of the outdoor deck, and enjoyed a new Beach Chair Lager or two:
Finally, everyone arrived back at the clubhouse, finished their burgers, dogs, and cake, and the crowds assembled for the prize presentations:
Organizers Karen Currie from Countryview, and Bob Fowler, got ready to hand out a huge table-full of prizes, from generous sponsors including Countryview, Kenmac Energy, Traction Heavy Duty Parts, Prebilt Steel, and KFC.
This year’s winners were the Gord Peters foursome, which included Dan Hughes (Elaine’s husband), Lynda Turnbull, and Derek MacEwen.

There was a new wrinkle in the best ball format this year, on the 9th hole, where playing order was chosen at random, with each player in turn hitting the same ball to the green using a seven iron, and then using a putter on the green. Some teams pulled it off in six or so, but one team, playing in heavy rain, as we saw pictured earlier, took nine strokes to do it, winning prizes for “nine on nine”:

“Closest to the pin” winners were Darlene Kneabone, Kris Currie, and Rick Doiron:

Long drive winners were frequent women’s winner Brenda Campbell, and Dave Hunt who won the “longest men’s drive for a person whose last name is not Currie” category, after Kris and Carl, who were first and second, opted out of the prizes.

Following the awarding of the main prizes, a large number of door prizes were handed out, with just about everyone in attendance going home with a prize or two.
Thanks again for another great event, thanks to the sponsors (mentioned previously), to Carl, Karen and Kris from beautiful Countryview Golf Course, who have been hosting this event for 13 years, and to Bob and the other organizers. See you back on the curling ice in the fall!

The golfers also had a tenth “hole” this year, with each player getting four chances at “washer toss” with each successful toss resulting in a reduction in the teams score.

Gord Peters foursome wins annual golf tourney
The weather couldn’t have been any better again this year at the Cornwall Curling Club’s annual 9 hole best ball golf tournament at beautiful Countryview Golf Course in Fairview, with a great turnout again this year. As usual, there was some fine golfing on the course:
There was also lots of great conversation, and a drink or two, on the deck:
There were two barbecues in action, as Kimball (pictured), Bob, Carole, and others cooked the burgers and sausages to perfection:
Finally, all the teams had finished their rounds, and it was time to hand out the hardware. Roy Coffin picked up a prize for closest to the line (he was ON it), and for the long drive on hole number 6 (open to men and women).

Linda Fairhurst was also a double winner, capturing both closest to the pin and longest drive honours for the women.
Gord Peters was the closest to the pin on the men’s side, while Leigh Carragher had the longest drive.
The team of (right to left) Neil Smith, Marg Stewart, Eileen Blanchard, and Rupert Sweetapple won the coveted award for the “Most Determined” team. There were actually three teams tied for the highest score, and the Smith team were the lucky winners of the random draw.
The winning team of the day was the foursome of Gord Peters, Melody Beck, Matt Thomson, and Mike Lafontaine:

It was a hot day as the combattants hit the links for the Cornwall Curling Club’s 2009 annual golf tournament at the Countryview Golf Course. As part of Countryview’s tenth anniversary celebrations, course owners Carl and Karen Currie had just opened two new holes, turning the best-ball tourney into an 11 hole event.
Here’s a couple of shots of some of the teams finishing up:
While the last teams were still out on the course, the early-finishers kept to the shady part of the deck, and kept hydrated with copious quantities of liquids.

Meanwhile, Karen Currie grilled up burgers and dogs to feed the hungry golfers.
Photo: Karen on the ‘cue
Finally, the last teams finished play, and it was time for the awards ceremony.
It turned out that the last team on the course, a three-person team consisting of Bob Fowler, Bev (Nucker) Richards, and Dan MacRae (who seemed to know his way around the course) emerged the winners, with an amazing three under par. Organizer Rick Doiron was determined not to give the trophy to any team containing Bob Fowler, and presented them each with a golf ball instead.

Finally, he relented, and brought out the trophy.

Other winners included:
Closest to pin number 8 (women) – Tracy MacDonald
Closest to pin number 8 (men) – Dick St.John
Closest to pin on new par 3 – Bob Fowler
Closest to the line – Bob Tucker
Ladies Long Drive – Krista Affleck
Men’s long drive – Rob Young
The last prize presented was for the “most determined” team, which included Paul Arsenault and Mary Plamondon.

After the awards, door prizes were drawn for those present. As usual, very few, if any, went home empty-handed.
The great weather resulted in one of the largest turnouts ever, around 60 participants. Incoming curling club president John DeLuca was on hand to thank the golfers, and the organizers, including Bob Fowler, Rick Doiron, Carol Sweetapple, Ray Biage, and Karen and Carl Currie, and said that he hoped to see everyone back at the Cornwall Curling Club in October.

Golf tourney reminder
Posted Tuesday, June 2, 2009 by derekm
June 27 is the date for our annual Club golf tournament at Countryview Golf Course, route 19 in Fairview. Cost to participate is only $25.
This is a nine hole best ball event, which means that you don’t have to have much (any) experience in order to participate. If you are less experienced, you will be put on a team with more experienced players. Following the golf, there will be a barbecue on the clubhouse deck, and a winners circle with prizes for lowest score, longest drive, closest to the pin, most “determined” team, etc., along with lots of door prizes (I don’t think anyone went home empty-handed last year).
Putting Contest Decides 2008 Golf Tourney
It was a cool, windy and drizzly day, but the real rain stayed away for the 2008 Cornwall Curling Club golf tournament at beautiful Countryview Golf Course. There were a few no-shows due to the weather, so organizer Bob Fowler divided the event into two divisions – one for three member teams, and one for four-person teams.
While the final teams were on the course, the teams from the earlier rounds discussed their play back at the clubhouse.
Photo: Warm and dry
Outside, Karen Currie (missing from photo while she went to the kitchen for more burgers), Ray Biagé, and Valerie Acorn cooked up a delicious burger, hot dog, salad and brownies meal to feed the hungry multitudes.

On the course, the last two teams were wrapping up:
Photo: Looking good!
Photo: Job done!
Photo: No birdie for Bob!
Photo: Good game!
Oh no! Looks like we’ve got a tie between the four-member Kentucky Fried Chickens, and a three-member team, anchored by course-owner Carl Currie.
Bob decides to engage the two teams in a putting contest. A four-hole course is mapped out on the practice green, and the two teams play off for the coveted trophy.
Rick and Tracy from the Chickens think they have it aced, as they line up Tracy’s shot:

Head Chicken Angus Davies also misses a close one to give the lead to the other team:

When it was all over, the hardware went to the three-person team of Marie MacDonald, Carl Currie, and Rupert Sweetapple.

The Kentucky Fried Chickens had to settle for second:

The prize for the team with the “most dedication” went to Chick Morrison, Greg St. John, and Daphne Crosby. Longest drive went to Gary Crosby (men) and Karen Currie (women) . Valerie Acorn took the honours for “closest to the line” (new event this year) on hole number one. Closest to the pin for the men was Donald Weeks, while no-one was able to hit the green to take the honours for the women.
Following the distribution of the main prizes, a large number of door prizes were drawn for.
Thanks to the many organizers, including Bob Fowler, Carl and Karen Currie from Countryview, Allan and Valerie Acorn, Ray Biagé and Barb Duncan-Biagé, and Rick Doiron for another successful Golf Tournament!
Have a good summer everyone, and we’ll see everyone back at both Countryview Golf Course and the Cornwall Curling Club for the Golf and Curling Transition Spiel in mid-October!

While the final teams were putting-out, the organizers were preparing a feast of hamburgers, potato salad, coleslaw, and yummy chocolate brownies.
While Bob Fowler was reviewing the scorecards, the attendees soaked up the sun on the deck and enjoyed the fine food (and a drink or two).

When the scores were tallied, the three-player team of Carl Currie, Tracey Lee MacDonald, and Hank Kamphuis came up the winners, with a score of thirty-three.

The prize for men’s longest drive went to big Rob Young, while the women’s went to (not so big) Tracy MacDonald.
