9. Serious Six vs. 3. Bluffs Boys
Senior Men's Fun Golf League
Tuesday, Sept. 17 gave the seniors a challenge with a south breeze, sand traps, challenging off-fairway grass and other reasons for excuses for poor scores. The seniors battled back and turned in fine scores. Congratulation to all 38 players.
Last week we had two teams sharing Mo Marcotte as he arrived as play was underway. This week found us with a two-man team who competed very well in a three-man format. In fact Vern Holter and Howard Connors turned in the low score of 35, one under par, featuring four birdies with #14, #15, #17 and #18 yielding birdies. Congratulations to Vern and Howard, two long time players.
Our other prize winners were at 37, Mo Marcotte, Jim Reed, and Bob Lund along with Shorty Hanson, Ted VanBruggen, and Ardell Hatch; at 38, Jerry Sommervold, Dick Munkvold, Louie Fostvedt and Don Bensen; at 39, Ross Johnson, Stan Munger, and Quentin Oleson along with Loren Carlson, Lloyd Helseth, Tom Walker and Harlan Schott.
Our shot of the day award goes to Jack Doyle for his 33-foot chip in for birdie on #18.
Plan to join us next Tuesday for fun at our fine golf course, The Bluffs. These fall dates will be fine for fun golf with the seniors.
Wednesday Ladies Golf, Bridge and Dominoes
Our president, Pat Berglund, started the Sept. 11 meeting with the pledge of allegiance to the flag followed by a moment of silence. The 35 members enjoyed lunch of pecan chicken breast and salad. Thelma Raines and Peg Mollet brought the dessert. The car wash donated by Kay Heikes went to Helen Brown. The membership drawings were won by Helen Brown and Glennis Stewart.
The 20 golfers played the back 9 and each player could use only two clubs plus the putter. Mulligans were available for sale. The winners were Jane Uhl, Helen Brown, Karine Amundson, Darlene Engbrecht, JoAnn Beringer, Jan Uhl and Fritz Lefler. Eileen Turner made a hole out!
The players at three tables of bridge guessed the number of jelly beans in a jar and Meryl Reed was the winner. The winners at bridge were those closest to 911, 1911, 2911, etc. The winners were Dorothy Reed, Gerry Van Bruggen, Reidella Engman, Robin Eisenmenger, Ellis Davis and Doris Mitchell.
Mexican Train Dominoes players had two tables. The high at each table was Ardyce Meisenholder and Darlene Engbrecht and the low Karine Amundson and Kay Heikes. Midpoint and double aught was Pat Pratt.
