As summer is approaching, there is very little free time left before the kids get out of school. What is a fabulous thing to do while the kids are at school? Play golf of course. Bird Homestead is now open for the season and you will be amazed how relaxing golf can be out at this course. Don’t have clubs? No problem, we have some for rent. Don’t want to walk? Don’t worry, we have carts too.

Bird Homestead Golf Course is located at mile 13 on Funny River Road. It’s a long, beautiful drive and well worth it once you make it out there.

Men’s Night

The first Men’s Night of the season had a great turnout. There were 15 men, and the force to be reckoned with of the night was definitely Mike Gardner. The unstoppable Gardner not only won pure birdie, and closest to on No. 6, he also led his team of Travis Robertson and J.E. Wells to victory, coming in with a score of minus-1 and taking first place. Long drive on No. 9 went to Travis Robertson. Men’s night will be continuing every Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. Who doesn’t want a fun night out with the guys?

Ladies night

Our first Ladies Night of the season will be this Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. Remember it’s about having fun, and we love seeing new faces. Format is always blind draw, best-ball scramble, so every team has a chance to be the winning team. Come join us for an evening of fun this Wednesday.
