Pro Shop Manager
I will start this month’s newsletter by congratulating our 2020, and repeat Club Champion, Brent Unterbrink. Brent shot a 36-hole score of 150, beating runner-up, Brent Beck, by a single stroke. I also want to congratulate our Senior Club Champion, Jack Brand, who won by one stroke over Gail Scarbrough, 157 to 158.
The only other activity I have to report on is the Par 3 Tournament that was held on Saturday, August 15. The event is a little unusual in the fact that we play 27 par 3 holes that are randomly created throughout the golf course. This year, we had six 3-man teams compete. We had two teams shoot a 12 under par 69 and decide to share the championship. Those teams were Brent Beck, Trevor Bebout, and Chris Wasson & Chadd Duvall, Jack Brand, and Roy Ringwald. Congratulations!
Upcoming events for September include the Labor Day Scramble and the Member Appreciation/Member Guest Tournament on September 12th.
In addition to our own events, we also host the Van Wert Boys and Lincolnview Girls golf teams’ home matches, and I encourage you to come out and support these young athletes. The September home matches are as follows: 9/3, 9/8, 9/10, 9/14, 9/17, and 9/29. These matches usually start around 4:00 p.m. and last a couple of hours.
I want to close by inviting you to the pro shop to take advantage of the sales we will be having in September. Sale items will include apparel, golf gloves, golf balls, and hats, at savings up to 35% off.
