Larry Hamilton, Tom Walsh and Clayton have been working very hard on the course to make it look great. You have to see the greens, they are magnificent and cut perfectly, you may confuse the course with a country club because how beautiful the course is looking. As the season is dwindling down, don’t forget to set aside time to come out and play at Bird Homestead Golf course on mile 11.8 on Funny River road.

Ladies Night

Last week we had nine women for ladies night. Sissy Bird, Connie Orth and Kelsey Slough came in on top with a 38. Those three women were an unstoppable threat to be reckoned with. On hole No. 6, Connie hit a beautiful tee shot winning her closest to No. 6, and on hole No. 2, Sissy Bird crushed her drive winning long drive. Ladies night is every Wednesday night at 6:30 p.m. and we love seeing new faces.

Men’s Night

There was an astonishing 31 men on Tuesday for men’s night even in the rain storm. It shows some dedication to show up and golf in a rainstorm, luckily the rain let up about a half hour in. The team on top for the evening came in with an incredible minus-6. Greg Harrington, Jeff Gillman and Dave Kerkvleit were among the winning team. Right behind them in second with minus-4, were Matt Hopson, Ryan Ellis, Josh Kerkvleit and Dwight Kramer. Josh Kerkvleit took long drive on hole No. 3, and Dave Kerkvleit took closest to on No. 6, with his incredible tee shot only 8 feet, 11 inches, from the hole. Jeff Gillman also had a nice tee shot on No. 8, the other par 3, he landed seven inches from the hole, winning him closest to on hole No. 8. Trevor Baldwin was a one man show on hole No. 7, as he got a pure birdie. Men’s night is every Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m.

Fun Fact Thursday

Tiger Woods was only 8 when he got his first hole-in-one.
