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.
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.
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.
