Bird Homestead Golf course is looking better and better every day. Tom Walsh, Larry Hamilton and the Bird Homestead crew have been working hard this season getting the course to look like a pristine country club.

Bird Homestead has a weekly calendar that stays the same every week to accommodate all golfers.

Mondays: $1 a hole — all day

Tuesdays: Men’s Night — starts at 6:30 p.m.

Wednesdays: Ladies night — starts at 6:30 p.m.

Thursdays: bring a friend for buy-a-round, get-a-round free.

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 okay, that’s what golf carts are for, and we have those too!

Don’t forget to mark your agendas for a round of golf at Bird Homestead Golf Course located at mile 11.8 on Funny River Road.

Ladies Night

Last Wednesday night we had a great group of women show up for ladies night. In first, after a very interesting chip off, was Liz Hayes and Faith Link. Liz hit an amazing drive on No. 4, winning long drive, and her teammate Faith hit a great putt on No. 6, winning long putt. Kelsey hit an amazing tee shot on 6, landing only four feet from the green, and hit her putt winning pure birdie, the first lady to win a pure birdie this season. Rhonda hit a great shot on No. 8, landing on the green. Ladies night is every Wednesday night. We will be starting at 6:30 p.m., and will soon have to start at 6 p.m. I hope to see new ladies out on the course.

Mens Night

There were an incredible 39 guys out for men’s night on Tuesday. Chris Rich was on fire; not only did he get long drive on No. 5, he also got a pure birdie. Dwight Kramer hit an incredible tee shot on No. 8, landing 25 feet from the pin, and Rob Robertson shot an amazing tee shot on 8, landing 32 feet from the pin. Coming in first with a phenomenal score of minus-6 was the team of Hans Brans, Dave Kerkvliet and Terry Johnson. After a chip off, Roy Bird led his team to second place. In second was Roy Bird, Chris Rich, Dwight Kramer and Greg Harrington. In third was Harold Chambers, Cameron Davies, Ken Ubben and Chris Hafer. Men’s night is every Tuesday night. We will have one more week starting at 6:30 p.m., the we will have to start at 6 p.m. I hope to see a record number of men next week.

Fun Fact Thursday

The first golf balls were made of thin leather stuffed with feathers. Tightly-packed feathers made balls that flew the farthest. Feather balls were used until 1848.
