PRICE FIVE CENTS
MERRIMENT REIGNS SUPREME
Women's Team Monkey Match Frolic
from Start to Finish.
MIh Check and Sir: Paterson Decide
Tie at Elg-lity Other Teams
Close Up.
JOLLIER company of
golfers than the twenty
four women who partici
pated in the "Monkey"
medal play team match,
has never trod the links
together. Their merry voices and laugh
ter echoed between shots, from start to
finish, and their white gowns glinted in
the sunlight, making a pretty picture in
keeping with the occasion.
And withal, there was the spirit of
friendly competition, which always goes
hand in hand with all co-operative con
tests, and in spite of the merriment there
was an effort on the part of all to play a
part and play it well.
Four teams of six each, captained by
Miss Check, Mrs. Faterson, Miss Dutton
and Mrs. Dana participated, each team
playing one ball, and players using the
club assigned by lot throughout, and in
order. The brassie came first, the cleek
second, the midiron third, the niblick
fourth, the mashie fifth and the putter
sixth, and no matter where the ball lay
the club of the player-up had to be used.
Driving with putters, niblicks and
mashies and putting with brassies or
cleeks, came as a natural consequence,
not to mention playing out of pits, bunk
ers and hazards with improper clubs.
lint this was all a part of the game and
the contestants adapted themselves to
conditions, did admirably and found no
end of enjoyment in it.
The ninth and last hole found Miss
Check and Mrs. Paterson tied for first at
eighty, with Miss Dutton a stroke away
in eighty-one, and Mrs. Dana fourth,
in eighty-nine. On an extra hole play-off
Miss Check's team won.
The popularity of monkey golf and
frolics of a like nature here, is a pleasant
indication of the good fellowship which
reigns supreme, and which gives an open
sesame to scores of pleasant acquaint
ances among both men and women.
