Although the sun couldn’t make its way through the clouds, it didn’t discourage the 38 Non-Fair-Weather golfers who attended the 3rd Annual Sunshine Ladies Tournament held at the Morris Riverview Golf Course on Saturday, August 22.

The Mexican Fiesta themed day opened with a Champagne Registration sponsored by Mabel Maxim Realty, and fruit platters were generously donated by Bigway Foods.

After a short delay due to showers, the ladies made several attempts to get their game underway and finally the Best Ball 2-Some game was on.

Due to the threat of more rain and lightning everyone agreed to forgo the second round and shorten the game to 9 holes.

First, second and third cash prizes were awarded in two flights and were sponsored by Mabel Maxim – Royal LePage Realty of Morris.

First in 1st Flight winners: Jalna Thurston and Olga Driedger from Morris. Second in 1st Flight winners: Val Bennett and Anne Klassen from Altona. Third in 1st Flight winners: Nicole LeClaire and Dana Dixon from St. Jean.

First in 2nd Flight winners Erin Nixon from Redvers, Sask. and Tara Braun from Morris. Second in 2nd Flight winners Janet Desautels from St. Jean and Bridgette Doerksen from Morris. Third in 2nd Flight winners Tamara Blezniuk from Morris and Angela Dueck of Rosenort.

Participants were awarded other door prizes and the day was a success due to the generosity of their hole sponsors: Access Credit Unions, BSI Insurance, Bruce Gregory Law Office, Dale Air Services, Graphic Intuitions, Prairie Fine Finishing, Rempel Insurance Brokers, St. Jean Grocery, and Sun Valley Co-op

The Morris Ladies League golf takes place every Tuesday at 6 p.m. from early spring when the golf course opens to mid-September. 2-Somes, 4-Somes and individual golfers are all welcome to come out and join or come any Tuesday as a Drop-In on the evenings when you can get away.
