Ties will be worth 1/2 point per team. In the event of a forfeit, the offended team will be awarded their average points per week for the season.
NOTE: THIS AS A HANDICAP LEAGUE AND EVERY PLAYER MUST HAVE A GHIN HANDICAP #.
The May 8 team scramble was pretty much a bust, with the weather refusing to cooperate. Only a few hardy souls played team fun golf but no scorecards were submitted.
League President Jere Chapman cancelled the event for this year.
Senior Men's Fun
Rain was in the forecast and clouds with windy conditions made the weather a big factor for 32 seniors who played the back nine at The Bluffs on Tuesday May 13. The scores were unbelievably good and everyone deserves to be proud of these seniors and their fine golf course at The Bluffs.
Our winners this day had a 34, two under par with the team of Elmer Mount, Bob Lund and Rod Tieman shooting great golf. Following in order were, at 35, Jerry Sommervold, Ted Van Bruggen and Bob Boyle; also at 35, Dave Bak, Ken Beringer and Ray Mount; at 36, Mel Marcotte, Dick Munkvold and Howard Connors; at 37, Ross Johnson, Vern Christensen and Cleland Cook; and then at 38, Vern Holter, Jim Reed and Van Pierce.
There were 11 birdies recorded this date.
We have a week off from seniors golf next week since The Bluffs will host the Girls' State Class A meet on Monday and Tuesday. We will be back in full force on Tuesday, May 27 with food at 11:30 a.m. and golf at 12:30 p.m. sharp. See you all then.
Golf begins season
Oh, what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day. Such a nice way to welcome the ladies to their first day of activities.
There were 35 enthusiastic ladies who met for a delicious taco salad served by Jere Chapman.
Dessert was furnished by Eileen Turner and Jayne Merrigan.
Eighteen golfers were delighted with the weather and with the beautiful golf course. We were to guess our score. That proved to be a little tough after not playing for months.
Helen Brown and JoAnn Beringer were in charge and the winners were one stroke off � Ardyce Meisenholder, Ardith Baer, Rula Hatch and Glennis Stewart; two strokes off � Pat Pratt and Fritz Lefler. Ardyce Meisenholder had a chip in on #9 and Lynn Hatle a chip in on #8 � good job.
During a short meeting our president, Pat Berglund, discussed prize money for the coming year. After much discussion we will decide at our next meeting. Kirk Hogen explained new rules for the wetlands and other hazards. Thanks Kirk, we appreciate your advice.
We welcomed a new member to our group, Pat Steckleberg. Thanks for joining. Anyone is welcome to join and enjoy the day at The Bluffs.
Jan Uhl made a quilted project in memory of Kay Heikes � the gift was won by Ardyce Meisenholder. Kay was one of our willing helpers and she will be missed by all. She was always there when we needed her.
There was one table of six for dominoes � on hand was the "Queen of Rules" who looks over all. Winners were Ardyce Meisenholder, first, who was a very calculating player, Lou Mary Bartles (the Queen) and Dodie Eicker, midpoint. Dodie was welcomed back as the expert from Sioux Falls. She's also welcomed by the golfers.
We are always happy to welcome new members. Come join in the fun.
Wednesday Evening Ladies League
After a rain-out of our first scheduled evening of play, we got the best day of the week to go out and hit the course. Many golfers made the most of the opportunity. In fact, there were eight birdies on the first outing! These were Mary Gauer on #4, Robin Hansen on #9, Nancy Scheidel on #8, Barb Weyrich on #3, Kris Gregoire on #8 and Nora Remily got two on #4 and #9. Scorching.
Pin prizes were also awarded to Sheila Prosser for the longest drive on #9, Julia Cheney for the most shots out of the sand on #6 and Lisa Wood for the most putts on #1 (greater than 4 and less than 6). The real money was won by Katie Mockler who received the proceeds of the Quackson drawing.
