The 91st Blaylock Ladies Club Championship teed off at Birchbank Golf Course last weekend.

The 91st Blaylock Ladies Club Championship teed off at Birchbank Golf Course last weekend.

Defending champion, Terry Van Horn, added excitement to the tournament by acing the par 3, 13th hole and finishing with a birdie on the par 5 18th hole on the first day, which was played from the red tees.

Her score of 80 gave her a 6-stroke lead over fellow-competitors Maureen Elliott and Susan Kim who both came in with an 86.

The second day, played from the white tees, proved to be more challenging, however, Van Horn’s 93 was good enough to maintain the lead and earn her the Blaylock Bowl as club champion two years in a row.

Her two-day total of 173 was 2 strokes ahead of runner-up and low-gross winner Maureen Elliott who shot an 89 on the second day for a total of 175.

Winner of the Elsie Buchanan trophy for overall low net for the two days was Anita Cameron, with a low net of 138.  Elliott also won the Francis Lauriente Rose Bowl for the least putts (60) over the two days.  Elliott beat out fellow-competitors Barb Secco and Ann Skinner in a putt-off.

Judy Davidson and Janis Bower, family representatives of the Blaylock and Buchanan families, traveled to Trail to join the 27 ladies who played in the tournament to present the Blaylock Bowl and Elsie Buchanan trophy. Sponsor AM Ford’s Kelly Zaytsoff, presented low-gross and low-net winners their prize of a hybrid club. Low gross winners in the flights were: flight 1-Sophia Park, 180; flight 2-Dana Haas, 201; flight 3-Colleen DeRosa, 211.
