The course has been looking absolutely gorgeous lately. Larry Hamilton and Tom Walsh have been working very hard to make Bird Homestead look like a picture perfect course. Summer is winding down and you have to find time soon to make your way out to Funny River road for a round of golf to see the incredible greens and fairways for yourself.

Ladies Night

Last Wednesday night, there was one golfer that was unstoppable. Kelsey Slough not only won closest to on hole No. 6, she won long drive on hole No. 3, long putt on hole No. 5 and helped her team to win a first place victory. Faith Link and Liz Hayes joined Slough for the first place team. Ladies night is every Wednesday night at 6:30 p.m. We love seeing new golfers join us for a night of fun.

Men’s Night

On Tuesday night there was an incredible 33 men out at Bird Homestead for men’s night. In first place with a minus-1 was Roy Bird, Cliff Hoff and David Kebschull. With 11 three-man teams, of course there was a chip off. Two teams came in 2-under and had to chip off for second place. After the chip off in second was the team of Dwight Kramer, Richard Harman and Brandon Wold. And in third was Greg Harrington, Mike Fastabend and Mark Orth. Long drive was on hole No. 9 and it went to Chris Rich. Royce Yeager hit an incredible tee shot on No. 8, getting closest to. There were many pure birdies, and based on hole difficulty, Mike Gardner took the prize money and bragging rights, since his pure birdie was on hole No. 7.

Tournament recap

The string tournament was incredible success. Thank you to Judi Artman and Jeff Gillman for their hard work and preparation. In first place was the team of Faith Link, Roy Bird and Steve Ellis with a score of 171. Yes a 171, with the format of shamble, scrabble, waltz, is a great score. In second after a chip off was the team of Rob Robertson, Hans Brons,and Margie Ubben. In third was Pat Bird, John Pollock and Jeff Gillman. Thank you to everyone who participated in this fun association tournament.
