Bird Homestead Golf Report: Course rounds into shape

The weather has been great and the course is looking beautiful. It is the perfect time to drive the 15-minute drive down Funny River Road and hit the course.

Don’t forget about the daily specials — Monday and Wednesdays are $1 a hole, Tuesday night is men’s night and Thursday night is ladies night.

Ladies night

Last Thursday the ladies had a marvelous time. The gal gang of Wendy Brons, Margie Ubben, Kelsey Slough, Linda Robertson and Sylvia Shim had a blast golfing together. Wendy Brons hit an incredible drive on No. 5, winning long drive. Ladies night is every Thursday night at 6:30 p.m. We play for fun, it’s a blind draw scramble, and we just like to have a night without the men.

Men’s night

Tuesday night, we had a great turnout with 21 men.

Of course, it couldn’t be a true men’s night without having a tie and settling with a chip-off. Walt Krieger hit an incredible chip sticking the green and leading his team to victory.

The top team of the night was the team of Bruce Skolnick, Walt Krieger and Ryan Ellis with 1 under. Second place, also with 1 under, was Mark Orth, Kelly Reichart and Greg Swank.

Although 21 men showed up, no one found the green off the tee box on Nos. 6 and 8, leaving the closest-to pot for carryover for next week. The pure birdie pot is also rolled over for next week. Men’s night is every Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m.

Upcoming Tournaments

The first tournament of the season will be June 18, the Funny River Quilters will be hosting their annual fun and wacky best ball scramble tournament. Some wacky golf shots will include hitting with a hockey stick, putting with a tennis ball, and even putting into a toilet seat. Don’t miss this great tournament, and the quilters also feed the players well.

June 25, BHGC will be hosting the 2nd annual Special Olympics tournament. All proceeds go to Special Olympics Alaska.

Call the clubhouse to sign up or for more information at 907-260- GOLF.

Fact of the day

On average, 300 million golf balls are lost in the United States per year.
