AJ Eathorne of Predator Ridge, Vernon’s Jesse Crowe (Salmon Arm Golf Club) and Chris Hinton of Kelowna’s The Harvest shared the pro purse with 69s in the 7th annual Fairview Mountain Ladies Pro Am Saturday in Oliver.
A total of 26 professionals and 104 ladies battled 40-degreet heat in a six-hour plus round. The pros chose to avoid a playoff and pocket $1,300 each.
Crowe also canned a 110-yard wedge approach shot for a deuce on the par-4 fourth hole, worth $300. Crowe’s amateurs from Spallumcheen were Cheryl Parker, Janet Kuhn, Barb Fox and Julie Pisch. They finished 11th.
The winning Pro-Am teams each carded 202 for prizes. They drew cards to decide final positions and Danny Long of Fairview won with his amateur team of Linda Schultz, Vajai Vaagen, Noella Ferguson and Deb Andreychuk. They won Scotty Cameron putters.
Hinton’s team of Sally Mae Houghton, Lisa McDonald, Shawna O’Neil and Karen St. Martin took second spot for drivers.
Jamie Stevens of Kelowna Golf Club and his team of Holly Lansdowne, Dani Sheehan, Beth Killaly and Eileen Sallis were third (won hybrids).
