Four teams

share first place

The men's regular league met on Thursday, May 22 with a 3 p.m. shotgun start using all tee boxes on the back nine. Weather was a slight problem with unusually low temps and high winds which seemed to affect the play.

In fact, the conditions had the leveling effect on individual and team scores. A couple new features for league play include a voluntary gross and net competition, and flag prizes on two of the holes each week. Also, president Jere will award a weekly prize for most disastrous event during league play. Here are the results of those happenings: Gross score winner � Ryan Baedke, 37; Net score � Tim Christopherson, 33; Longest putt (#18) � Joe Villalobos; closest to flag (#17) � Dick Brown; Disaster! � Matt Moen, who took 15 strokes before sinking the putt on hole #16.

Results of the second week in the American division had a best team score of 20 points for "Still Smokin." The second highest team score of 16.5 was recorded by both "The Pickups" and "Alkota."

Low individual score of 37 was shared by R. Baedke and Scott Hansen. Other 40 and under scores were: Jeremi Cowman � 38 (net 32); Kevin Brown � 40 (net 35), and Matt Ellis � 40 (net 36).

There were eight birdies reported for the day, two each by Cowman and Dennis Tomhave.

The National division demonstrates the competitive nature of the game when four teams share first place after two weeks! The only best team score worth mentioning was 17 by "Pros," which moved them up to the weekly standings tie. Eric Stevens had a 1 under par 35, "Coach" Christopherson reported a 38 (net 33); Don Harris was at 37 (net 35); PJ Maloney � 40; Steve Eide, Harlan Schott, and John Hemenway tied at 41.

Only seven birdies were reported (three by Stevens, and two by Christopherson).

Cook sinks

hole-in-one

The Bluffs was very cooperative for 34 seniors on Tuesday, May 27 as they played the front nine. One of our seniors had the thrill of a golfers lifetime when his tee shot on #8 ended in the cup ? a hole-in-one. Congratulations, Cleland Cook.

Our top team this date scored an even par 36 with Ross Johnson, Dan Baer and Ray Lynn on the lead. At 36 we had two additional teams Sid Davis, Max Andersen and Cleland Cook along with Mo Marcotte, Ron Brown and Tim Prosser. At 37, Mel Marcotte, Ken Beringer and Ray Mount and the team of Harlan Schott, Jim Reed and Loren Carlson. Our final winners at 38 were Alan Clem, Bill Rasmussen and Jack Stewart.

There were nine birdies scored this date in addition to our eagle ace on #8.

Shot-of-the-day honors go to Cleland Cook for his hole-in-one and strong mention goes to Ron Brown for a 60-foot putt and to Jack Stewart who hit two birdie putts from 28 feet and 21 feet and had a 150-yard approach shot to inside four feet from the pin.

The summer schedule will begin next Tuesday, June 3, with coffee and donuts at 8:30 a.m. and golf to start at 9:30 a.m. sharp. Our seniors meal will follow the golf. See you there.

Wednesday Evening Ladies League

Another beautiful day for all the ladies activities at The Bluffs. Great day for golf and to see the lovely golf course makes you feel good.

We were happy to welcome a new member � Jeanne Van Bolen. Thirty-eight ladies enjoyed a delicious chicken salad and a very tasty veggie salad served by the Cherry Street Grille. Dessert of chocolate cake was served by Pat Olson and Lorraine Brunick.

There were 16 ladies to play golf. The players with the best poker hand were the winners and they were Ardyce Meisenholder, Edith Nelson, Jan Uhl, Helen Brown, Pat Steckelberg and Pat Berglund. Seemed like some of the ladies weren't good poker players but "A poor day on the golf course is better than cleaning house, though."

Babe Hurowitz had charge of the dominos � high was Karen Benson; low, Fritz Lefler and middle Dodie Eicker. There was one table of seven.

Winners in the Quackson drawing were Cynthia Chaney $5 and Helen Brown $5.

Pat Olson and Dorothy Reed were in charge of bridge. There were four tables and high went to our new member Jeanne Van Bolen, 5330 � congrats. Pat Olson � 3600 � came in second. Middle was Reidella Engman with 2860. Low was Robin Eisenmenger � 1590.

Time to hit the road. See you all again next week. We always have room for more � see you!

Wednesday Evening Ladies League

We returned to the front nine May 21 for this week's outing. Sheri Ellis took advantage of the night to shoot the low net score with a blistering 29! Jenny Chandler shot the low gross with a 35. Several other golfers were playing well as there were six birdies carded: Mary Vlasman on #1, Jenny Chandler on #8, Sheri Ellis on #5, Lois Hazen on #5 and #6, and Rhoda Grant on #8. (Hope Susan ordered those birdie pins.)

Pin prizes were also awarded to Julie Lewison for shortest drive on #1, Susan Oberle for closest second shot on #2 (it was beautiful; no birdie however), and Lois Hazen for closest to the pin on #5 (and she made her birdie). Coming into money was Lynn Mortenson who won the Quackson.
