On. Sept. 24, 11 senior men came out to play their own games (handicapped) and the winner was Gary Dawkins, who shot a net 32. Mike Hollingsworth was closest to the pin at the sixth and Gary Dawkins was closest at the eighth. The longest putt was put in by Darell Jelsma.

Tuesday, six ladies played on a beautiful fall day. They played a three-lady scramble and the winners were Rita Geller, Leona Jackson and Sally Hoagland. The Bingo, Bango, Bongo game was won by Chiya Bazan.

For Men’s Night (Big Wednesday), 13 golfers came out to play a blind-draw scramble and the play resulted in a tie. The team of Max Conradi, Steve Hammarstrom and Darell Jelsma tied with Steve Griglione, John Davis and Kevin Downs. In a chip-off with head lights from trucks (Bagger Vance style), the team of Max, Steve and Darell came out the winner.

Kevin Downs won long drive for the second week in a row. Bill Engberg got the greenie at the sixth and Tom Hodel got it on at the eighth. Pure birdies were recorded by Jarod Ramm on No. 4 and Kevin Downs on No. 7. Men’s night will start at 5:15 p.m. on Wednesday to try and finish before dark.

As you all know, we are experiencing a beautiful Indian summer and it looks like it will continue for the next two or three weeks, so come out and enjoy some fall golf and while here observe some of the changes that are happening at Birch Ridge.

Some changes are a clearing behind the driving range that someday will be a turf farm, an expanded tee box on No. 2 and No. 3/12 next year will be a par 5. Much work has been accomplished cleaning out the rough between Nos. 3 and 7 and of course, because of the bark beetles, many spruce trees have been cut down.
