On Saturday, September 17, 2016 (under adverse conditions), the Gold River Ladies Club hosted our 24th annual “Jewel of the Isle” Golf Tournament.

62 ladies from all over the Island participated. We are very pleased to announce that Caroline Anderson of Cordova Bay Golf Club in Victoria was the winner of the Low Gross Trophy (sponsored by Gold River Builders) with a score of 86. The low net winner with a net score of 73 (sponsored by Cypress Creek Logging Ltd.) was Deb Hutchinson of Storey Creek Golf Club.
