The Bluffs Bulletin Board Special Sertoma 3-person Early Bird Open results
A perfect day greeted 33 – three-person teams at The Bluffs on Saturday, May 15. The main purpose for the event was to raise funds to aid in furthering the charity, community, and youth golf programs of the Vermillion Sertoma Club. The low scoring teams won pro shop certificates. There were flag prizes as well and a steak dinner was served to all participants.
Lowest winning score of 57 was posted by the team of Bill Goodwin, Dale Erwin and Bill Mathias. Tied at 61 were Randy Houska, Larry Vietz, and Clayton Kern, and John Tipton, Bruce Oien and Dave Wobbena. Finally, a 62 was won by Guy Larson, Randy Gross and Brett Simewon. The team scored a birdie on #13 (handicap hole) for fourth place.
Thanks to all who contributed to this excellent charity event!

Senior Mens Golf
Now this is golfing weather and 41 seniors were present May 18 to help prove it! The course must be easier, the new members better, or the "old" players have finally improved because all the prize-winning scores were under 40.
Tied for first at even par 36 were the teams of Mel Marcotte, Jim Reed and Jack Stewart and Pete Berglund, Berwyn Svoboda and Pat Boyle. Tied with scores of 38 were the teams of Alan Clem, Ray Lynn and Ray Lynn and Don Baer, Vern Christensen and Don Mitchell. At 39, a three-way tie won the remaining prizes: Shorty Hanson, Quenton Oleson and Vern Lambert; Morris Marcotte, Duncan McGregor and Jack Doyle and Ron Brown, Lloyd Helseth, Louie Fostvedt and Jim Prosser. Birdies on #10 (six of 'em) indicates that the "free drop" rule can be exploited. Birdies on #11, #12, #13, #17 and #18 were legitimate!
There's more room for new joiners to the senior men's golf outing every Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. (plenty of good food) and 12:30 p.m. shotgun tee-off (approximately).
