The Bluffs Bulletin Board Men's League
The back nine at The Bluffs, with refurbished cart paths on #14, #15 and #16, still gave the golfers a rough time on June 19 as only two of the 72 competitors parred the course and several posted scores in the 60s (even a couple in the 70s).
However, the gross and net awards were both accomplished by Justin McVay (36 gross, 31 net). No flag prizes were available for this session.
Results of the sixth week in the American division had a best team score of 18.5 points from Divots who improved their spot in the standings from ninth to seventh. Chalky's scored 15 points; also, Serious Six made its presence known with a 14.5 score.
Nobody made par as an individual, but Kevin Brown posted a 37 (net 33) while Joe Bjorkman and Matt Ellis each had a 39 (net 34). Drew Barns recorded a 40 (net 33) and Harland Durkin, Brian Steele, and Nick Hovden each scored 41. There were 15 birdies reported, with Ellis, Durkin, and Mike Brewer having two each.
The scoring in the National division had Bluffs Boys, Ace Hardware, and Community First Insurance tying with 16.5 points each, in a top of the standings scramble, which left First National in first, Bluffs Boys in second, and Ace Hardware at third.
Not too much excitement about the individual scratch scoring in the National division, except for McVay's and Romney Jones' par 36s. Jones had lowest net 28 and 38 was the next best to be accomplished � Chad Lavin had that honor. Gary Prosser, Tim Christopherson, and Rick Haught each recorded gross 40 scores. There were 13 birdies reported for the day with McVay claiming three of them on #11, #14, and #18.

to skip golf
Twelve seniors agreed to walk the front nine at The Bluffs on June 24. The Senior Men's Fun Golf League had a group of seniors who opted to have coffee and rolls and skip the golf. We are all thankful for the rain and the absence of serious storms Monday (June 23) night.
Our next meeting will be Tuesday, July 1 with coffee, rolls, and conversation at 8:30 a.m. and golf promptly at 9:30 a.m.
her first birdie
June 18 was a beautiful night for the Wednesday Evening Ladies League: warm, but not hot, breezy enough to keep the bugs from landing but not so much wind as to affect play much. Taking advantage of the evening was Jenny Chandler who shot the low gross of 39. Audrey Ticknor also had a great night shooting one of her best scores, but she was edged out for low net by a single stroke by Robin Miskimins who netted at 31 (47-16). (Sorry about that Audrey).
Birdies on the back 9 (in "competition") were had by Deb Heyl on #14, Nora Remily on #11 and Mary Gauer on #10 and #14. Playing the front nine, Mary Ellen Jensen birdied #2 and Leigh Washburn shot her first ever birdie on #5.
Our hosts awarded pin prizes to Julie Heine for the longest putt on #18, Donna Schott for the closest chip on #10 and Kathy Chandler for closest to the pin on #12. Jenny Chandler also had her name on the list for closest to the pin but was beaten out by her mom. In the Quackson drawing we had trouble giving the money away as the first two names drawn out belonged to persons who had already left. The winner needs to be present to collect those quarters.
Ultimately, the winner was Tammy Baisden.
