The weather is not stopping the golf game. Despite the cloudy skies and the raindrops the course was busy this last week. We saw a lot of kids with their dads on Father’s Day out spending some good quality time together. Spoke to a couple of the groups and they really enjoyed the time with each other and said they were going to make it a point to do it more often.
Last Thursday night we had nine ladies play a nine-hole scramble. It was great to have a couple new ladies join the group. The Iowa girls that managed to get drawn together took first place with 1 over par. Nice job to Connie Orth, Cindy Garvey and Kelly Pelz. Cindy also crushed a long drive past the pipe on the fifth fairway to win the cash. Faith Link took home a little cash for longest putt on No. 3 at 10 feet, 8 inches. The ladies tee off every Thursday at 6:30.
Rain … what rain? Tuesday night we had 22 guys that took their chances and managed to play a dry round of golf. JE Wells helped his team to a first-place win at 5 under by shooting a pure eagle at the fifth. Trevor Baldwin, Dwight Kramer and Matt Federle were pleased to play with JE. Second place went to Aaron Blackburn, Joel Overway, Ricky Relano and Rob Robertson, finishing 3 under. Joel Overway smashed a drive down the third fairway to win long drive and Harold Chambers landed closest to the pin on No. 8.
We would like to extend a thank you to all the people who supported the Alzheimer’s Tournament on Saturday. The hole sponsors and donations really helped make this tournament great. It was a good turnout and a lot of fun. Karen Berger put together a great event and fed us all very well when we finished.
Trevor Baldwin, Aaron Blackburn, Duane Tachick and Scott Sundberg took first with 5 under and Pat Bird, Roy Bird, JE Wells and Jeff Gillman took second with 4 under. The third-place team consisted of Tim Newby, Joe Newby, Tammy and Jim. Joe Newby also took long drive for the men and Cindy Garvey won ladies long drive. All in all a great evening for everyone.
The Funny River Quilters are hosting their 14th Annual Tournament this Saturday. If you don’t have a team, call the clubhouse and we will help you build one. This is always a great tournament to play and the ladies always treat you very well. They are also holding a silent auction during the tournament and have a lot of great things to bid on. Be sure to call the clubhouse and reserve your power cart early.
We have reached the official first day of summer and if you haven’t been out to visit the course, take a beautiful drive 11.9 miles out Funny River and test your golfing skills. Visit the staff and shop the clubhouse for your golfing accessories.
