Birch Ridge report: Games continue

The Senior Men’s Monday is getting more interesting every week. Darell Jelsma is thinking up many games. This week, it was blind draw partners and the winners were Tim Bowser and Kevin O’Fallon. The Greenie on No. 6 went to George Stein and on No. 8 to Mike Hollingsworth. The longest putt went to Sid Cox.

Tuesday was rainy and only three ladies played —Denise Cox, Chiya Bazan and Margaret Stanley. It was reported that the bugs were out in force. No contest, but the girls had fun.

Wednesday, 26 men came out to play Men’s Night. First-place team was Trevor Baldwin, Dave Brown, Steve Hammarstrom and Darren Honda. Second was the team of George Stein, Jakob Brown, Earl Mathis and Mark Baker.

Third went to Jay Kriner, Jake Eveland, Steve Griglione and Robert Stiver. Long drive was Brad Carver, closest to the pin at the sixth went to John Davis and at the eighth went to Earl Mathis. Darren Honda had an eagle at the fourth and a birdie on No. 7, hands down winner of the Pure Birdie Pot, he even put some money back to prime the pot for next week.

Upcoming events include the Kenai Peninsula Open on Saturday and Sunday. This is a two-day, 36-hole stroke play tournament for amateurs and pros. For more info on this event, call the pro shop at 907-262-5270.

Also upcoming in September is the Combined Birch Ridge and Bird Homestead Classic, tentatively scheduled for Sept. 16. Choose your own team, play for the course of your choice. Format at each course is three holes Shamble, three holes Waltz and three holes Scramble. More on this tournament later.
