Well, the rain has finally let up enough to let us get back to playing golf! As a result, it has been a pretty busy month.
In June, we welcomed 44 Junior Golfers to a program that has been going strong for three years now. I continue to hear positive feedback from both the kids and the parents on how much they enjoy it. Thanks to Brad and Kim Doidge, and their high school golfers, for making this the success that it is.
Since my last newsletter, we have played two tournaments as well as completed the first half of the Tuesday Night Men’s League.On June 22nd, we held the first Handicap Scramble. A total of five teams participated with the team of Kevin Merkle, Jim Loughrie, Dave Froelich, and Chuck Steele winning with a net score of 54. Second place with a score of 57 was the team of Bill Purmort, Jack Brand, Rick Boley, and Juanita Plyler. Skill winners were Bill Purmort and Gale Scarbrough.
The annual 4th of July Scramble was held on July 4th with a total of 8 teams participating. The winners, with a score of 60, were Al Welch, Trevor Bebout, Tim Clemens, and Dick Waters. Runners-up were Brent Unterbrink, Denny Knittle, Andy Anderson, and John Lahmon with a score of 62. Skill winners were Bill Purmort and Stephanie Zabicki.
Congratulations to the winners and a big thank you to those who participated and supported the activities of the club.
On July 9th, we crowned the first half champions of the Tuesday Night Men’s League. Scarlet Division winners were the team of Al Welch and Dave Froelich with 2nd place going to Chuck Koch and Jim Robideau. In the Gray Division, the winners were the team of Arnie Miller and Roy Ringwald with Andrew and Gregg Bashore finishing second.
August is a busy month with two tournaments scheduled: Best Ball and Par 3, and the Club Championship. I ask that you please consider signing up, or better yet, ask a guest to join you in playing.
For someone who plays golf, there are a lot of goals to set. One might be a hole-in-one or maybe shooting par. If you play the game long enough, another goal is to shoot your age. Although we have had several members hit this goal, Jack Brand shot a 71 the other day making it the 18th time he has accomplished this feat. And, as Jack would say, “wait until you get my age”! Congratulations Jack!!See you soon!
