Low Net winner Neil Fraser pitches one down to the sixth green during Sunday's round at the Port Alice Men's Open golf tournament.

Port Alice Open sees hole in one

Rory Bondue takes the Low Gross as Gerry Johnson holes from the tee at the Port Alice Men's Open golf tourney.

PORT ALICE—He may not have landed among the top scores of the Port Alice Men’s Open, but Gerry Johnson can take consolation from the fact that he played hole 16 perfectly during Sunday’s round.

After posting a double bogey on the hole Saturday, the golfer saw his tee shot sail over the creek, fly the 100-odd yards and roll in for a hole-in-one during Sunday’s half of the tournament.

A field of 26 took to the course over the weekend, with scratch player Rory Bondue taking the top spot. Bondue’s consistent play throughout the event netted him rounds of 60 and 66 for the top Low Gross of 126.

In the same flight as Bondue — along with Fletcher Crook and Trent Cunningham — Men’s Captain Neil Fraser, playing off a 16, posted rounds of 76 and 76 for the Low Net of 120 for the weekend.

The other scratch player on the course, Darren Schmidt, posted scores of 64 and 69 to take the second Low Gross, while Jim Gordon’s 122 net for the weekend saw him just behind Fraser in the Low Net standings.

The men step aside August 16 for the fun-filled, fancy-dress Ladies Open — this year with a Rock ‘n’ Roll theme.

Before then, July 19 sees club members battle it out in an alternate drive/ alternate stroke-format married/ odd couple event.

The weekend of August 2-3 sees the return of the fun, mixed-sex Donny McLeod Memorial tournament.
