Bird Homestead’s golf course has been in particularly great condition. You would think you are golfing in California with how beautiful the greens and fairways are. Take the nice scenic drive 11.8 miles down Funny River road to see for yourself. Golfers of all levels are invited, including brand new golfers, and don’t worry about needing clubs, we have those here to rent, along with push or motor carts.

Ladies night

There were 13 beautiful women out for ladies night last week. The first-place team was Katie Tackett, Lois Mushovic and Liz Hayes. Liz Hayes was on fire all night, as she crushed the ball on No. 3, winning her long drive. Faith “Ms. Acrruate” Link drained her 128-inch putt, winning her long putt on hole No. 8.

Ladies night is every Wednesday night at 6:30 p.m., and we enjoy having new women golf with us. Come out and join us for a night of fun.

Men’s night

There was an amazing turnout for men’s night, as 39 men showed up for an evening of nine holes without the ladies. First place went to Jeff Gillman, Jim Holliman, Rob Robertson and Dwight Kramer. With this many men, there was bound to be an infamous chipoff. In order to determine who came in second and third, there was a four-way chipoff. Roy Bird beat out Mike Fastabend’s beautiful chip, taking his team to second place. While Roy Bird, Ken Ubben, Dave Kebschull and Cliff Hoff got second, third went to Mike Fastabend, Brandon Wold, Chris Rich and Rick Relano. Daniel Rivenbark won long drive as he had an absolutely gorgeous long drive; you would’ve needed binoculars in order to keep an eye on it.

Junior Golf lessons

Junior golf lessons are continuing today at 4:00 p.m. This is FREE for children and a great opportunity to learn a great sport. Parents, how many business deals are made on a golf course? Having this skill in your children’s pockets can be a great asset to your young entrepreneurs’ future careers. The lessons are two hours long, you can drop off and pickup, play a round of golf and take advantage of buy a round, bring a friend and get a round free Thursday special, or watch. Golf pro Tom Walsh will be holding the lessons with help from Kelsey.

Fun Fact Thursday

According to the health and fitness website ShapeFit.com, a typical 190-pound golfer will burn 431 calories per hour — assuming he or she is walking across the course instead of riding a golf cart.
