The first couple of weeks of September have been busy finishing up the schedule with the completion of four events. The first was the Labor Day Scramble. A field of eight, four-person teams was won by Trevor Bebout, Jim Loughrie, Andy Anderson, and Chris Wasson with a ten under par score of 70. Three teams tied for second with scores of 62. Don Farmer, Jana Ringwald, and Kurt Muntzinger won the skills events.
The Tuesday Night Men’s League finished up their rain-shortened second half on September 11. Chuck Koch and Jim Robideau won the Scarlet Division with 72.5 points, beating Jerry Rager and Tom Sinn by a half point. The Gray Division was just as competitive as the Bashores, Andrew and Gregg, edged out Thad Eikenbary and Mark Hurless 73.5 to 72.5.
The next completed event was the Senior League Championship. Returning champion Ron Klewer took home the top spot again this year defending against a field of 12 golfers.
Last but not least, we held the annual Membership Appreciation Tournament on Saturday, September 15, after a week delay due to inclement weather. To qualify for this tournament, members need to participate in a specific number of qualifying events. Due to a few cancelations this year, the qualifying number was participation in six of the ten events. The eight prizes include monetary discounts for next year’s membership ranging from $700 for the low net score to $100 for several skills events. This year’s top winner was Jack Brand, with the low net score and a winner of a skills event. Second place went to Bill Purmort with second place low net and one skills event.
I want to congratulate all of this year’s winners, as well as thank those that participated and supported the Clubs events throughout the year.
The end of the season sale is going on now! All items in the Pro Shop have been reduced to a minimum of 30% off retail. This is a great time to do some early Christmas shopping or cash in existing gift certificates.
Here is a Lee Trevino quote that most of our membership can relate to, “The older we get, the better we used to be.” I certainly can!
