The Rideau Glen Golf Club played host to 25 couples this past summer, every Wednesday evening. Couples of all ages got a chance to meet new friends who share a passion for the game and participate in fun activities throughout the summer. Theme nights included, Proud to Be Canadian, Colour Me Happy – Variety Night and also included a BBQ meal, a potluck, and a pizza party. Couples kept score each week and then a hidden hole scoring system was used to adjust scores, which levelled the playing field for all levels. Prizes purchased from local businesses were given out on a weekly basis for “Closest to the Pin (or unicorn)” and “Longest (or shortest) Drive” Our league champs were John Tenbult and Karen Whiteman (otherwise known as Bushwhackers) and they finished with 528 points. Our final tournament day, held on September 17, 2022, was a little bit more of a traditional style scoring system with players flighted based on their standings. The “Open” flight was won by “Par-tee Timer’s” Robert and Kim (Lynsey) Ferris, the “Master’s” flight was won by “Reckless Driver’s” Matt Melrose and Jamie Bell, and there was also a “Tour” flight. A fabulous lasagna dinner was provided by “Just Hone Cookin” Pam and Don Miller for our final dinner together. The Couples League will be back for 2023 with more fun theme nights, lots of laughs and hopefully even more faces.
