It was another great week out here 11.9 miles down Funny River Road. The ladies played Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. and Susan Ellis won long drive with a nice shot up the middle at the fifth. Faith Link won long putt on No. 2. We would love to see some more ladies join us. We play for fun and exercise. Sissy Bird, Elaine Taylor and Connie Orth took first place with 2 over par. Always a good time.

Tuesday night was another big hit with 31 guys for men’s night. They teed off at 6:30 and finished around 9:00. Jake Eubank was a big winner this week taking long drive, closest to on hole No. 8 at 9 feet, 5 inches, and splitting pure birdie with Ricky Relano at the ninth. Aaron Blackburn landed 15 feet from the sixth hole, winning closest to.

The first place team of Ken Ubben, Mark Orth, Nick Beeson and Jake Eubank came in 6 under and close behind for second at 5 under was Matt Federle, Jerry Norris, Ricky Relano and Harold Chambers.

The Bird Homestead Golf Association is starting its free junior clinic June 12 to 15 at 4 p.m. for ages 6 to 16. Bring your kids to learn some golf skills or tune up what they may already have. The association is having its first tournament Saturday at 1 p.m. The Annual String Tournament is a lot of fun. It is an 18-hole, blind-draw scramble. Every team gets a roll of string to assist with those close shots that you just can’t quite make on your own. Come join the fun and enjoy the potluck afterward.

The season is off to a great start and hopefully the weather will cooperate for another great year. The greens are filling in nicely and we are looking to place a couple more new tee boxes to make things a little more challenging. Come check out our daily specials and have some good golfing fun.
