The season is coming to a close very shortly. The weather is getting colder, but the one good thing about golfing in the cold, is when you come in after a round of golf, the hot soup from the kitchen tastes even better. There is still plenty of time and light to play a few rounds before the snow starts to fall. You will not be disappointed when you make the drive down Funny River Road, you will be stunned how beautiful the course looks. Larry Hamilton and his crew have done a remarkable job this summer keeping the course looking beautiful.

Ladies Night

Last Wednesday night, we had a great bunch of ladies for ladies night. Long drive on hole No. 9 went to Kelsey Slough. First place team was the unstoppable pair of Elaine Taylor and Susan Ellis.

Ladies night starts at 6 p.m. every Wednesday night. Don’t be concerned with your skill level, it’s a blind draw, scramble format and it’s all about fun with the ladies.

Mens Night

Even though it was pouring down rain, 10 diehard men showed up for men’s night last Tuesday. The winning team was the team of Roy Bird, Aaron Blackburn, and Mike Gardner. Aaron was on fire for the evening, as he also won long drive.

Don’t forget men’s night is starting at 6 p.m. now. Every Tuesday night the men play a fun round of golf with no ladies. New men are always welcome to play.

B&B Recap

Unfortunately for Birch Ridge, they were not able to “Cook the Bird” on Sunday. Bird Homestead prevailed once again winning the traveling trophy at the annual B&B. There was a great turnout. Andre, James, Matt Hopson, and Tim Bornowski led the Bird Homestead team and won first place after a chip off. Thank you to all the Birch Ridge members who cooked a great dinner for all the golfers after the tournament.
