Bird Homestead Golf Course and the Caribou Hills Cabin Hoppers hosted the 13th Annual Fall Classic this last weekend. The weather held out all day and we had a great 18-hole scramble.
Congratulations go out to Mike Navarre, Harold Chambers, Tommy Carver and Don Davis for winning first place with 9 under par. Second place went to Pat Bird, JE Wells, Travis Robertson and Faith Link with a 6 under.
Trevor Baldwin planted a nice drive down the middle of the fifth fairway to win men’s long drive and Faith Link crushed a drive on the second fairway to win the ladies long drive. Mike Navarre had some great aiming skills and landed closest to the pin at the eighth and Don Davis landed 15 feet, 5 inches from the pin at the sixth.
A huge thank you to Mike and Sherry Parrish for the amazing pig roast and to all the people who provided the awesome side dishes. We had a great time and great food.
Men’s night is still going strong. Twenty-six guys teed off at 6:30 p.m. for a nine-hole scramble on a beautiful, sunshiny evening. Don Davis, Richard Harman, Mike Gardner and Ken Ubben came in with a nice win of 4 under. Following with second place at 2 under was Jeff Gillman, Dwight Kramer, Cliff Hoff and Mike Fastabend. Trevor Baldwin landed long drive on the first fairway and Jeff Gillman beat out Roy Bird for closest to the pin on No. 8. The men will play again next Tuesday at 6:30.
