Don’t let this little bit of rain scare you from playing golf. We aren’t made of sugar and won’t melt. Playing a round at Bird Homestead is worth the little bit of rain that you may endure. Not only are the greens immaculate, the fairways are beautiful and tee boxes just look gorgeous.

There is only a little bit of golf season left, so stop by Bird Homestead to take advantage of the great specials. Monday a buck a hole, Tuesday men’s night, Wednesday ladies night, and Thursday, buy a round, bring a friend for a round free.

Upcoming Tournaments

The annual fall classic is Saturday. Come out and support the Caribou Hills Cabin Hoppers. Call the clubhouse for more details. 260-GOLF.

Men’s night

There were 31 men who played Tuesday night. John Pollock crushed the ball with an amazing drive on No. 3, winning long drive. Travis Robertson and Dwight Kramer both had excellent tee shots on the par 3s, securing closest to on Nos. 6 and 8.

Tom Walsh has done a great job keeping us golfers on our toes with the placement of the pins, so great that none of the men were successful in getting a pure birdie. Can you believe there was no chip-off?

The team on top with minus-3 was Jeff Gillman, Travis Robertson, Garry Stubblefield and Scott Sundberg. Right behind them with minus-2 was Brandon Wold, Roy Bird, James Kozel and Dwight Kramer. Men’s night is every Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m.

Ladies Night

Despite the rain, a handful of us ladies still had a great time. Who can complain? No men, no children, no problems while playing a round of golf. Nothing can be better than a stress-free evening.

Margie took long putt, and Pat took long drive. The team on top was the duo of Faith Link and Pat Bird. Funny story of the night: Pat Bird hits an incredible shot, Margie Ubben says to Pat Bird, “I want to be just like you when I grow up.”

Come join the fun every Wednesday night at 6:30. Believe me you DON’T have to be great at golf, honestly not even good. It is blind-draw, best-ball scramble. We are all there just to have fun.

Fact of the day

Golf season here is almost over.
