Driving all the way out to Mile 12 Funny River Road seems like a long drive, but it is worth every second. You will be amazed how nice the golf course looks.
Jeff and Curtis, the two-man show, have been working hard to keep the fairways and greens in immaculate condition. The beautiful drive is well worth playing a round of golf on a beautiful golf course.
Bird Homestead has a weekly calendar that stays the same every week to accommodate all golfers: Mondays and Wednesdays: $1 a hole – all day; Tuesdays: Men’s night – starts at 6:30 p.m.; Thursdays: Ladies night – starts at 6:30 p.m.; Friday: FlingGolf.
We always love to see new golfers at the course. Don’t have your own clubs? No problem, we have some you can rent. Don’t want to walk a round of golf, that’s OK, that’s what golf carts are for, and we have those too!
We had 26 men show up for men’s night on Tuesday. It was a lovely evening and the men had a great time. Chris Rich was definitely a force to be reckoned with. Not only did Chris win long drive and pure birdie, he also led his team of Dan Smith, Rich Harman and himself to a first-place victory.
Mike Fastabend hit a great tee shot on No. 6 and landed on the green winning the closest to the pin. Mark Orth had a fabulous tee shot on No.8, winning him closest to the pin.
Men’s night is every Tuesday evening at 6:30 p.m. New men are always invited. Format is a blind-draw, best-ball scramble.
