2017mcquinn-cup2017 McQuinn Cup winners

Pat Everett and Edith Albrecht combined for a 66 to win the McQuinn Cup, Tuesday at the Comox Golf Club.

The trophy competition originated in 1967, created by Goldie McQuinn, whose home was located where Fairway Place now stands. At the time, there were few competitions with other clubs and no ladies 2 ball.

Originally, the McQuinn Cup was a match play competition played in the fall. Now it is a handicap field event in July.

The tournament is open to all members with an established handicap. The person with the highest handicap is paired with the golfer with the lowest handicap until teams are complete. The team handicap is half the combined handicap of the two players. Shots are alternated until the ball is holed.

Lorelei Banford and Pat Schmidt were second with 67, and Janice Nicklin and Jean Kirby third with 70.5.

Anne Patterson wins Low Net – trophy presented by Nancy Riva, Chair and Sandy Kurceba, Pro. Anne Patterson, a member of the Comox Golf Club won Overall Low Net with 69. Christina Spence-Proteau from Port Alberni carded a 74 to win the Overall Low Gross trophy. The team prize was won by Christina Proteau, Shelly Stouffer, Karen Kloske and Medissa Morrow.

Of course none of this could have been possible without our major sponsors Gregg Hart, owner and managing broker of Royal LePage in the Comox Valley and our Hole in One sponsors, Mike Paroshy from Westview Ford, Canadian Western Bank, Visual Sounds and Comox Fireplace and Patio. Although there were no Holes in One, it was the thought that counted. Royal LePage provided goody bags with the participation of a lot of their realtors.

Throughout the weekend the ladies enjoyed a horse race, chipping contest, karaoke, great food and some great golf. Aaron Sorenson and his crew of Rod Ware, Chris Coffee, Barry Ross and Jen LeBleu defeated all odds against the weather. The work ethics of this crew are top notch. Too bad it was so wet out there but we got to play thanks to this dedicated team.

Anne Sullivan “What a Fireball”. She has turned the Food and Beverage operation into a friendly and welcoming environment with amazing food and a lot of fun. Her staff is dedicated to provide great service and that we thank her for. Come for lunch to the Sannd Trap Bar N’ Grill at the Comox Golf Club.

Sandy Kurceba joined us in January to become the new GM and Pro. Coming from Winnipeg Sandy and Anne heard about our warmer winters with some rain and possibly golfing all year. Apparently this was one of the coldest and wettest winters on record. Sandy is a teaching Pro and trick shot artist so watch for further information on his next show. What an asset to our club. Come visit his pro shop staffed by Sean, Tyson, Linda, Lachlan and Tom.

On Saturday night Sandy, Jim Eremko and Pat Riva supervised the Horse Race. This year it was a par 3 event and so much fun. Holly Sanders and Patti Harris placed first, second was Sharon Crowe and Pat Belanger and third was Phyllis Taylor and Nancy Newton. A chipping contest was held also with Sue Leakey placing first and second was Barb Buchanan. Ian chose a hidden spot on the green for another prize won by Sue Hawley .
