Bird Homestead Golf Report: Golf season enters its back 9

The guys have been working very hard on the course to make it look great. You have to see the course. It looks magnificent and cut perfectly.

As the season is dwindling down, don’t forget to set aside time to come out and play at Bird Homestead Golf course, a short 15-minute drive down Funny River Road in Soldotna.

Ladies Night

Last week we had 14 women for ladies night. First place went to the triple threat of Margie Ubben, Faith Link and Connie Orth. Those three women were an unstoppable threat with which to be reckoned.

First place was just the icing on the cake for Faith Link. She crushed her tee shot to win longest drive, and also won long putt Thursday night.

Ladies night is every Thursday night at 6:30 p.m. and we love seeing new faces. Remember it’s best ball, so don’t worry about your skill level, we play for fun.

Men’s Night

There were 20 men who showed up Tuesday for men’s night. The team on top for the evening came in with an incredible minus 4. Steve Ellis, JE Wells, Greg Swank and Roy Bird were the fantastic four-winning team.

Andy hit an incredible drive on No. 9, winning the longest drive. Greg Swank took closest to the pin on No. 6, with his incredible tee shot only 5 feet, 5 inches, from the hole.

Rich Haller also had a nice tee shot on No. 8, the other par 3. He landed 31 inches from the hole, winning him closest to. Danny Hughes was a one-man show at No. 2, as he got a pure birdie.

Men’s night is every Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m.

Fun Fact Thursday

Tiger Woods was only 8 when he got his first hole in one.
