Men's League

After the rainout on May 16, the regular league competition began on May 23 with a 3 p.m. shotgun start using all tee boxes on the front 9. The league is made up of two divisions � American and national, each with 14 teams. The summer season will run every Thursday through Aug. 22, and then there will be a final elimination tournament involving all 32 teams until a final champion is determined in September. Remember � the course is closed to league play on July 4 and 11.

The new scoring system precludes the chance of a weekly perfect score. It would take a total whitewash in both sessions � a highly unlikely event. There are some new teams and some renamed teams in both divisions so unfamiliar names might show up in the weekly reports!

So, results of the first week in the American Division shows best scores for Team Noonan � 20.5; and Bud Light � 18.

Low individual score of 35 went to Dave Chickering who had a net score 32. Bill Willroth had a 38 while 39's were registered by Brett Hogen and Steve Ward which gave him a low net of 35.

Also, other under par low net scores went to Mike Stewart (32), and Harland Durkin (34).

There were 17 birdies and one eagle reported for the day. Gregg Peters had the eagle on #2. Chickering had birdies on #1, #3, and #6; and Hogen birdied #3 and #6.

The National Division had three teams with high point scores: Rich Job � 19.5, Par Plus � 17.5, and Chalkys � 17.5.

Kevin Brown played both sessions and had 38 and 39 low gross scores as he recorded a birdie on #1, two birdies on #2, and an eagle on #6 during his two rounds. Low net scores were: Vern Holter, 32; Troy Nicks, 34; and net of 35 for Bob Mayer. Ten birdies and one eagle were reported with Eric Berg and Ken Green being the only golfers in the division having two birds.

Senior Men's Fun Golf League

Tuesday, May 28, due to early morning thunderstorms, found the course closed to driving carts so the Fun League had to be cancelled. We will meet again next Tuesday for fun, food, golf, and conversation. Don't miss these great spring golfing days.

Wednesday Evening Ladies League

It looked like Mother Nature was going to be against us again on May 22. However, a group of intrepid women held out against the threatening weather and withstood the onslaught of rain just prior to teeing off to enjoy another evening of golf on the back 9. Our host for the evening was The Bluffers. They were able to award prizes for the longest drive on #11 to Sheila "Boom-Boom" Prosser (What a shot!), the longest putt on #18 to Lynn Hatle and the shortest drive on #10 to Jill Kjose.

No one got inside the rope, raising the stakes to $15 next week. In addition to the pin prizes, two ladies were able to remove their pigs from the tree. Getting birdies were Amy Hammerstrom (#12) and Susan Oberle (#17). Inside the clubhouse Jill Kjose added to her winnings on the night by also collecting the Quackson monies.
