Bird Homestead Golf course is now OPEN! The course is looking better and better every day. I would like to welcome Tom Walsh to the Bird Homestead crew, he has been working hard at getting the course in shape for the season.

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 7 p.m.

Wednesdays: Ladies night — starts at 7 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.

Bird Homestead

Golf Association

We are always looking for golfers to join our fun association. What are the benefits you ask? You can keep your clubs in our club barn and they will be waiting for you every time you come out to golf. Another benefit is being able to establish an official handicap, which some golf tournaments require, and also the Bird Cup.

The golf association organizes the “Bird Cup” every year which is a handicapped, match play tournament. This is a season-long tournament, teams of two play another team each week (you organize the time and day). We are always looking for more teams to join the fun, if you want join please call the clubhouse at 260-GOLF.

Men’s Night

Tuesday night we had 17 men attend Men’s Night. First place went to Jeff Gilman, Rob Robertson and Aaron Blackburn. Second place went to Marty Radvantsky, Scott Sundberg, and J.E. Wells. Long drive went to Aaron Blackburn. Every Tuesday night the men start at 7 p.m., for a night of fun with only men.

Ladies Night

Ladies night has just started this week. Every Wednesday night at 7 p.m., us ladies go out and play nine holes and have a great time. We encourage golfers of all skill levels to come join us. Ladies night is all about having fun, leave the men at home and come join us for an evening of fun.

First tournament of the season

Our first tournament of the season will be the Quilters Tournament. Every year, the Funny River Quilters hold their annual benefit golf tournament and this year it will be Saturday, June 20. Registration closes at 9:30 a.m. and shotgun at 10 a.m. This is an 18-hole best ball tournament. This is a fun tournament where funny things happen on Funny River road! Be sure to turn in your entry forms early so they have enough time to plan for food. The number of carts is limited, so reserve one early. For more information call Marilyn @ (907) 260-5874 or Lona @ (907) 260-3982.

Junior Golf

We will be continuing our junior golf program this year. We will have more information to come on this program.
