Bird Homestead Golf Report: Men’s, ladies nights shine on

Have you seen the hidden treasure 12 miles down Funny River Road? It is quite the gem. It has nicely mowed fairways, pristine greens and immaculately groomed tee boxes.

YES, I’m talking about Bird Homestead Golf Course. Heck, it might even be the best looking golf course in Alaska. Come check it out for yourself!

What makes this course even better than the great quality of the greens, fairways and tee boxes? The specials, of course. Monday and Wednesday are $1 a hole, Tuesday night is men’s night and Thursday night is ladies night. Stop by to enjoy a nice round of golf.

Men’s night

There were an incredible bunch of men out Tuesday for men’s night. Some of the men shined more than the others.

Derin hit a great tee shot on No.4, winning long drive. Trevor Baldwin was a one-man team on No.3, winning pure birdie. Ken Ubben landed one on the green on No.6, while Greg Swank landed on No. 8, both winning closest to the pins.

Coming in with minus 5 and winning first place was the team of Jamie Queen, Derin, Travis Robertson and Richard Harman.

Men’s night is every Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m. Stop by and join the fun. Remember, the more equals more for the winning team.

Ladies night

Last Thursday night the ladies had a wonderful time in the gorgeous weather. The team on top for the evening was the duo of Susie Ellis and Angie Nishimura.

Remember, ladies night is all about having fun. If you haven’t joined us for a Thursday night, you definitely need to come out and see how fun it is for yourself.

Did I mention the more ladies that show up the bigger the pot is? Wouldn’t you like to play the best sport ever, with a group of fun women and take home some cash winnings? Ladies night is every Thursday at 6:30 p.m. It is blind-draw, best-ball scramble.

Fact of the day

You will have the greatest time of your life playing a round at Bird Homestead Golf course. OK, well that wasn’t quite a fact, so here’s one. The world’s first ever golf tournament for women was held on New Year’s Day in 1811 at Musselburgh.
