The weather is absolutely beautiful, it is the perfect weather to go golfing. Bird Homestead looks so good you would think you were golfing at a country club in California.
Last Wednesday it was a gorgeous night for Ladies Night. Ladies long putt went to Kelsey and ladies long drive went to Faith. After all the teams came in, the scores were even and we called it a draw. Ladies night is every Wednesday night at 6:30 p.m. Don’t be discouraged about skill level, it is irrelevant; ladies night is a blind draw scramble.
There were 36 men out for Men’s Night. Long drive went to James Kozel, Roy Bird was on fire winning pure birdie on hole No. 5 and closest-to on hole No. 6. The first place team went to Steve Ellis, Andrew Manton, Josh Kerkvliet and Trevor Baldwin with a minus-3. Second place with a minus-2 was determined with the infamous Bird Homestead chipoff. Cuz Cousins landed only two inches away from the cup giving his team of Steve Tachik, Eric Hardesty, Hans Brons and himself the victory. In third was Richard Harmon, Skip Dove, Aaron Blackburn and Travis Robertson. Men’s Night is every Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.
