SOLHEIM CUP – RYDER CUP – JUNE 10, 2017 – EVENT SUMMARY
Solheim Cup 2017
On Saturday, June 10, 2017, the women played in the Solheim Cup. The Solheim Cup is a team event with two (2) teammates playing matches against the opposing team. We had 20 players in total, therefore two teams of 10 players each. The matches are played using 3 golfing formats of 6 holes for each format – Best Ball (holes 1 – 6), Alternate Shot (holes 7 – 12) and Scramble (Holes 13 – 18). After the 5 matches were played, the Red team came out victorious, although many of the matches were so close that they could have gone either way.
Everyone had a wonderful day of golf and fun, with the photos of the winning team and the second place team below, along with the scorecard.
Joan Barriault won Closest to the Rope on #1 and Kathy Pope won Closest to the Pin on #14. The seven draw prizes were won by Bev Goold, Dini Nugent, Joan Barriault, Kathy Pulcine, Lee Whelly, Liz Curran and Mary Betts.
WINNERS – RED TEAM – Susan Gillean, Lee Whelly, Connie Froats, Liz Curran, Anne Queen, Renate Rodgers, Karen Acton, Dorothy Price, Carole Myers, Jean Chiarelli

Solheim Cup – Results
Ryder Cup 2017
On Saturday, June 10, 2017 the men played a new event – Ryder Cup. The Ryder Cup is a team event with two (2) teammates playing matches against the opposing team. We had 28 players in total, therefore two teams of 14 players. The front nine was played as a two-man scramble and the back nine a two-man net-best-ball. After the 7 matches were played the two teams were tied…so everyone won!
Everyone had a great time, but the men failed to take any pictures, other than the scorecard. Despite what Greg White wrote on the scorecard, both teams won.
George Acton won the closest to the pin on #5 and Ross McEwan won #14. The three random draws were won by Jim Niles, Jeff Avery and Bob Austin.
Mixed Chapman Scramble – Post Event Note
May 29, 2017
The sun came out for our 2017 Mixed Chapman Scramble where we hosted 50 golfers in an absolutely beautiful day for golf.
This was a competitive, yet fun event with the following winners declared at the end of the day:
1st Low Net – Penny & Marty Wells
2nd Low Net – Jill Finlin & Gerry Hoeft
3rd Low Net – Danielle Ryza & Jeff Avery
4th Low Net – Sandy & Peter Finnigan
1st Low Gross – Joan Barriault & Bob Austin.
The skill event winners were as follows:
Closest to the Pin on #5 – Ladies – Kathy Pope
Closest to the Pin on #5 – Men – Bob Austin
Closest to the Pin on #14 – Men – Martin Buckley
There were also a couple of fun events during the competition. The first event was ‘Guess your Score’ which was won by Pierre Ladouceur & Wendy Buchanan. The other fun event was the ‘Mini-stick Closest to the Pin on #8’ which was won by Sandy Finnigan. Sandy’s shot stopped 6 inches from the pin – perhaps the Sens could have used her shot in the last game!
The random draws ($15) were won by: Anne Robson, Wendy Buchanan, Connie Froats, Patricia Downey, Kathy Pulcine, Tom Pulcine, Rene Douville, George Acton, Hannah Chiarelli & Don Betts.
Thanks to Karen Acton for organizing the fun games. We also want to thank all the staff at Cedarhill for all their support.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at our next event – Solheim - Ryder Cup on Saturday, June 10th.

Opening Get Acquainted Scramble
May 13, 2017
After a reset caused by all the rain we have had this spring, we held Cedarhill’s first member golf event of 2017 – the Opening Get Acquainted Scramble. We had thirty-three (33) golfers participate, however, given the weather forecast, we did have a few cancellations.
Although the focus was on fun, we did acknowledge the winning foursome with a low-round of 65. The winning team was: Connie Froats, Jim Niles, Ron Nezan and Ross McEwan. The most honest foursome, with a score of 76 was: Joan Barriault, Anne Robson, Nathan Dagenais and Jack Dagenais.
Justin Scanlon won the ball-drop – throwing a ball onto the 18th green to the hole – some 60-70 feet away and having the ball find the bottom of the cup. As it turned out, it was only the second ball toss of the day. Justin is reconsidering his putting stroke!
In Chase-the-Ace, the four aces were found by: Richard Lessard, Ross McEwan, David Green and Judy Genereaux. Each won $50.00. The random draws from $25 to $15 were won by: Kathy Pope, Jill Finlin, Anne Robson, Kathy Pulcine and Nathan Dagenais.
Thanks to Karan Acton for organizing the fun games. We also want to thank all the staff at Cedarhill for all their support.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at our next event – Mixed Chapman Scramble on Saturday, May 27th.
Enjoy the pictures!
