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 is $1 a hole, Thursday is two play for the price of one, Tuesday night is men’s night and Wednesday 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 night for men’s night. Can you believe 42 men flooded the course for a fun evening of golf?

Some of the men outshined the others. Roy Bird hit a great tee shot on No. 4, winning long drive, and Greg Harrington was a man team on hole No. 5, winning pure birdie. John Overway landed one on the green on No.6, while Terry Johnson landed on No. 8, both winning closest to the pins.

With the massive amount of teams, a chip-off was bound to happen. Coming in with minus-3 and winning the chip-off was the team of Mark Orth, Trevor Baldwin, Dwight Kramer and Leroy Stigen, leaving Larry Taylor, Greg Harrington, Gary Stubblefield and Harold Chambers in second place.

Men’s night is every Tuesday night at 6:30. Stop by and join the fun. Remember more players equal more for the winning team.

Ladies Night

Last Wednesday night the ladies had a wonderful time in the gorgeous weather. The team on top for the evening was Margie Ubben, Kelsey Slough and Connie Orth. Kelsey had a very precise hit on No. 5, winning longest putt, and also had an amazing pure birdie on No. 4.

Remember, ladies night is all about having fun. If you haven’t joined us for a Wednesday 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 Wednesday night at 6:30 p.m. It is blind-draw, best-ball scramble.

Fact of the day

You will have a 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 in Scotland.
