Ladies take to course

The 11th Annual Ladies Golf Tournament was held at the Beaver Island Golf Course on Saturday, July 23. A field of 30 golfers was divided into eight teams with an early, 8:30 am ‘canon’ start provided by golf course manager John Works, Jr.

The ladies enjoyed a sunny and warm morning and the stellar play by a number of teams matched the wonderful conditions. Three teams finished the nine-hole course with sub-40 rounds, led by eventual champions Marg Charbeneau, Doris Larson, and Annette Dashiell who carded a one-over-par 36. Teammate Trudy Works was unable to join the field, but the other three rotated through her turns.

Another highlight of the day was the awarding of the two-year-old hole-in-one award. Tournament co-director Taffy Raphael said of the award, “We’ve had the Hole-in One Award and then called it the Eagle Award and no one has gotten it, so today it was renamed the Birdie Award.” Angel Welke, playing with Donna and Louise King and Margie Robbins, accepted the prize as that team earned a birdie on the always-difficult third hole.

After awarding trophies to the winning team Raphael and fellow co-director Ruth Kelly handed out door prizes to all participants.

Kelly was quick to acknowledge the many sponsors who contribute to this popular yearly highlight. As well as a number of individuals who donated gifts, local merchants who helped make the tournament a success include: The Beaver Boat-Tique, Montaage, East Wind Spa, Livingstone Studio, Whimsey, Seven Sisters, McDonough’s Market, Charlevoix State Bank, Harbor Market, The Corner Gas Station, The Beaver Island Historical Society, and The Beaver Island Golf Course.

Following the tournament the group gathered for a celebratory lunch at the Shamrock.
