Seniors participate in open tourney by Jim Prosser The weather conditions were favorable � winds at 15-20 mph, and temps in the low 80s � so the Senior Tournament was on the schedule and the course was in pristine condition, compliments of superintendent Mark Clark�s hard working crew.
The clubhouse staff, led by Len Griffith, had the breakfast prepared, with the help of Matt Hock; the leader in the Pro Shop, Kirk Hogen, along with assistants Rusty Jensen and Eric Stevens had the tee times worksheet ready to receive about 120 senior golfers. So all that was left to do was to get the group registered and assigned by the 9 a.m. shotgun start time.
Senior golfers, from all points of the compass, converged on The Bluffs on Tuesday, June 18. From Omaha in the south to Huron in the north and Sioux City from the east to Gregory in the west, with several towns in between, came enthusiastic aficionados of the game. Flighted by age only, groups of 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-75, and 76+ were assigned and then flighted after the final scores were recorded.
After the 18 hole tourney was completed, there was a buffet luncheon while the pro shop workers determined the results, which follow:
