Birch Ridge tourney raises over $5K for Seward booster club

On July 21, the town of Seward traveled to Birch Ridge Golf Course to hold its 15th annual Seward High School Booster Club Tournament. The Tournament was filled with sunshine, friendship and best-ball golf. This year’s event raised over $5,100 for the high school’s athletic program.

The 2018 winning team was Nicole Lawrence, Colby Lawrence and Rodney Roemmich, shooting 13-under par. The second-place team was Clint Droper, Darian Draper, Paula Saindon and Mike Thompson at 10-under par and the third-place team was Dan Murphy, Packy Dick, Cliff Draper and Ruth Parker and 9-under par. Long drives went to Jeremy Horn and Willow Hetrick Price. Closest to pin contests went to Gene Minden and Kristi Larson. The people of Seward love and support this tournament and they have lots of fun.

7/23/18 — Senior Men’s day only seven seniors showed up to play on this rainy day. The winner was Tim Bowser with a net 30. It could have been better as Tim discovered a rule we all ought to know. He hit (from the tee box) one of the stakes guarding the green from carts on #8. He discovered that’s “the rub of the green”, you do not get a second shot. He could of walked down and removed those stakes prior to hitting, but his comment was “it was 165 yards”. Closest to the pin on #6 went of Mike Hollingsworth and on #8 to Steve Tachick, and longest putt also went to Steve Tachick.

7/24/18 Ladies Day — Again rain, four ladies showed up. However, after a discussion they decided to go have coffee together and socialize with their 2 1/2-hour allowed time.

7/25/18 — Men’s night, rain again. However, 10 men showed up. Team #1, Trevor Baldwin, Tim Bowser, George Stein, Mike Hollingsworth and Darell Jelsma. Team #2, Pedro McCall, Jay Kriner, Gary Davis, Steve Griglione and Jacob Brown. Both teams tied but a chip-off decided that team #1 was the winner. Long drive went to Gary Davis. Closest to the pin contests went to Pedro McCall on #6 and Darell Jelsma on #8. Pedro McCall had the only pure birdie.

Next upcoming event: Phil Turkington Classic/Soldotna Elks Club Charity Tournament. August 11 with a 9 a.m. shotgun start. One of the best scrambles of the year, big prizes and a steak dinner, sign up at either the Soldotna Elks Club or Birch Ridge Golf Course Pro Shop.
