Ladies have day in the sun at Nakusp Open

At least there was sun for the Nakusp Ladies’ Open Golf Tournament on July 4, even if the grounds were still a bit soggy.

At least there was sun for the Nakusp Ladies’ Open Golf Tournament on July 4, even if the grounds were still a bit soggy after the torrential downpours the area had been experiencing.

Thirty-five ladies in three flights competed for a variety of prizes ranging from vases with cut flowers to a golf bag, to a knife sharpener, and what looked like a previously tried-on pair of shoes.

A contingent of 16 women made the trek from Revelstoke to compete, many of them making the journey year after year to enjoy the sport and socializing, as well as the lunch.

Lisa Longinotto took first overall, and greeted her trophy with a kiss. Sandra Webster earned first gross overall. “Hardest worker,” also known as highest score, was given to Mary Kwong, who was still working hard bringing three cups of coffee to her table when the award was announced. She accepted it with aplomb.

The Birdie Pot was split between Judy Gran and Kathy Tencza who each won $35 for their birdies.
