Bird Homestead Golf Course, located 11.9 miles down Funny River Road, had another amazing week on the course. We defied the odds of rain all Memorial Day weekend and enjoyed a lot of friendly faces on the course.

The ladies played last Thursday evening at 6:30 with Sissy Bird, Pat Bird and Margie Ubben taking first. Margie had an awesome chip-in on the seventh hole for a birdie. Faith Link took long drive at the ninth, landing at the top of the hill. Sissy Bird landed closest to the pin on No. 6 and Susan Ellis won long putt on No. 3. We play every Thursday at 6:30 and it is open to all women 18 and older.

The men had another great night Tuesday with 27 players. The sun was out the entire evening and much warmer than last week. The weather brought out the big shooters with Rob Robertson, Chris Rich and JE Wells taking first place with an incredible 6 under par. (Nice job guys!!) Second place went to Kevin Lauver, Josh Kerkvliet, Paul Zimmerman and Steve Skolnick with a 4 under.

Aaron Blackburn walked away a winner taking long drive at the second and closest to on No. 8. Mike Gardner was a big winner, taking four weeks worth of carryover by landing closest to on No. 6. A big shout-out for Josh Kerkvliet. He crushed a drive on No. 4, landing inches away from the pin for a pure EAGLE!!!

A huge thank you to Missy Becker for our new website, Be sure to check it out. We would love to hear your thoughts. We will be adding to it as time goes on but we do have a complete listing of rates, tournaments, events and hours posted. Along with some great pictures of past events.

Larry Hamilton and his crew have been hard at it, making our course one of the most beautiful on the peninsula. The greens are filling in nicely and the fairways are just about moose-track free. The sand traps have been manicured and the tee boxes mowed. Our course would not be what it is without the hard work of this crew.

Stop and see us. We have a clubhouse full of supplies and snacks and we also have rental clubs and carts.
