Fairmont Ladies’ Club

June was a busy month for our club and from all appearances July will be much the same. The challenge between the rival Fairmont clubs of Mountainside and Riverside was to take place on June 2nd but was cancelled due to rain. Interclub was also hosted by Mountainside on June 9th with four teams competing. Riverside received the most points with Radium in second place. Mountainside and Golden tied for third. The last day of the month was, of course, the monthly cup challenge and it was won by Shirley Bergman with a score of 84 which gave her a net 65. Well done, Shirley. Stay cool.

On July 12th, the annual Tunnacliffe Interclub Tournament was held at Windermere Valley Golf Course. Forty competitors from the Radium Course, Riverside, Mountainside and Windermere Men’s Clubs braved an initial downpour to complete the 18 hole event in record time. This year, the format of the tournament was a four-man match play with points being awarded for the lowest net score within each foursome on each hole. For the second year in a row, the team from the Windermere Men’s Club emerged victorious to retain the Tunnacliffe Cup. The team from Mountainside was a close second followed by the teams from the Radium Course and Riverside. Skill prizes went to Mickey Riches for the longest putt on Hole #14 and to Dan Steele for Closest to the Pin on Hole #5. Deuces were worth $27 each.

Thanks must be given to the Windermere Valley Golf Course for hosting and especially to Anne Riches and her staff for the excellent meal and service. We look forward to renewing the competition in 2016, which will be hosted in Fairmont.
