Remember � the course is closed to league play on July 3 and 10.
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 �Still Smokin�� � 18.5; �Multiple Putts� � 15.5 and Coldwell Banker �15.
Low individual score of 37 went to Harland Durkin who had a net score 30. Nick Hovden had a 38 while 39s were registered by Matt Ellis and Ted Wilharm.
Also, other under par low net scores went to Greg Bates(34), and Hovden( 34).
There were eight birdies reported for the day. Durkin had birdies on #3, and #4; and Troy Nicks birdied #3 and #6.
The National division had two teams with high point scores: �Misfits� � 16.5; and �Back 9 Grill� � 15.5; tied for third were: �S&H Construction� and �Char Bar� with 13.5 points.

Seventeen birdies were recorded with four members getting two each � Villalobos, Prosser, Lavin, and Mike Wettstein.
battle windy course
As the golfers sat in the club house waiting to tee off and looked out to see such beautiful blue sky with white fluffy clouds, it seemed like a good day for golf but that changed when they went out and, wow, South Dakota wind met them.
The wind did as it pleased to a lot of shots � (windy windy).
The wind didn�t keep 37 ladies for another delicious meal by Cherry St. Grille. Pat Berglund and Sarah Brown were responsible for dessert of lemon and chocolate bars.
There were 14 golfers ready to hit the greens despite the wind. The golfers played Bingo Bango Bongo. One point is given for Bingo � first on the green � one point for Bango � closest to the cup � one point for Bongo for first in the cup. A total of three points a hole.
The winners were, first � Jan Uhl, Meryl Reed, Dodie Eicher, second � Pat Steckelberg, third � Ardyce Meisenholder.
Meryl Reed chipped in on hole #13 for all three points. Imus said �Golf is for Birdies� and Jan Uhl proved so by getting a birdie on #16. Good job, Jan.
Jo Ann Beringer and Helen Brown were in charge of the golf. Mary Bartels was manager in charge of dominoes. There were two tables of dominoes � 13 players in all. Marleen Amundson and Ardyce Meisenholder were high. Lows went to Pat Berglund and Mary Bartels. Midpoint was Dodie Eicker and Babe Horowitz.
Jan Uhl was in charge of four tables of Bridge. High score � June Wagner 4690; and high � Sue Ann Stutthile 3950; low Jean Marshall 1310. In the middle was Reidella Engman � 2390, and Deanie Christopherson � 2390.
We�re looking forward to getting together next week. Come join us for a fun-filled Wednesday afternoon.
Wednesday Evening Ladies League
It was a chilly evening for our outing but at least there was no rain. The back nine was more stingy with the group this week than the front was last week. There was only one birdie on the night � Deb Heyl on #16. Actually, the chill didn't bother Deb Heyl at all as she also netted the low gross (40). Low net went to Michelle Maloney with a 31.
The chill and a shoulder injury pushed Leigh Washburn to the high score for the evening (let's just say it hurt). Rhoda Grant won the Quackson drawing. And, for those who follow the ups and downs of golf closely, we want to be the first to report that Katie Mockler beat Susan Oberle. See everyone next week.
