The Merritt Golf & Country Club had near-perfect playing conditions for its wind-up weekend of men’s and women’s membership golf activity.

As she has done all season, Diana Lorenz topped a field of 32 local ladies on Saturday, winning the low gross title with a score of 82. Second low gross went to ageless Muriel Griffith with a score of 86. Over-all low gross winner was Peggy Plotnikoff at 61.

The men’s competition on Sunday saw low net winner Bob Simpson (the 10-handicapper shot an eye-popping round of 75) take the first prize — a set of Nike golf clubs valued at $800.

Simpson’s seven-stroke advantage in the interesting flag-race format simply could not be matched — even by low net scorers Adrian Reynoldson and Brad Carr, both of whom shot impressive even-par rounds of 72.
