September has been a very busy month here at the Bend. In the past four weeks, we have crowned a Club Champion, a Senior Club Champion, a Senior League Champion, a Presidents Cup Champion, as well as completed the Labor Day Scramble and the Member Appreciation Tournament.
I will start with our Club Championship results. The competitive two day tournament was won by Brent Unterbrink with a score of 151. Second place went to Kevin Merkle with a score of 155. The low net for the Championship Flight was won by Chadd Duvall with a score of 142. The Senior Division was won by Gale Scarbough with a score of 157, with Willie Williams taking second place shooting 159. The low net for Seniors was won by Jim Loughrie with a score of 140. Congratulations guys!
The President's Cup is a summer long Match Play Tournament. This year included a field of 11 golfers who play head to head in a single elimination format. This year’s final came down to Mike Zedaker vs. Arnie Miller, with Mike being the eventual champion. Congratulations Mike!
The Senior League is played on Mondays and Thursdays throughout the summer with Dick Waters at the controls. They finish the year with an 18 hole low net tournament. This year’s winner was Roger Okuley. Congratulations Roger, and a big thank you to Dick for putting in the time to coordinate the league.
The Labor Day Scramble was won by the team composed of Merkle, Merkle, Johnston and Wasson with a score of 61. Second place went to the team of Brand, Sinn, Trittschuh and Plyler with a score of 62.
The final event of the golf season is the year end Membership Appreciation Tournament. To qualify to play in this tournament, an individual must play in at least 60% of the clubs identified events. The tournament is a, 18 hole net (with handicap) event that has prizes ranging from half the cost of a family membership to as little as $100.00 credit off your membership. This year, Gale Scarbrough won first prize (50% off a family membership) with a net score of 64.73. Jim Loughrie finished second (50% off a premium cart package) with a score of 66.54. In total, 8 of the 11 participants won at least $100.00 worth of credits towards their 2020 membership. These participants are the individuals who continually support the club by participating in the club sponsored events. Thank you!!!!
In addition to these club sponsored events, the club also hosted the County Calcutta, the WBCC Girls Invitational, as well as several high school matches and practices.
As the golf season winds down, I do have all apparel, Callaway golf balls, and golf gloves reduced by at least 35% off the retail price. Please stop by and check out our selection.See you soon!
