23 ladies play
for least putts
Another good day for golf on June 18.
Twenty-three ladies played golf for Wednesday morning golf and the game was for puttless score. Those who had the least putts were Jane Uhl, 27, Mary Mock, 33, Edith Nelson, Karine Amundsen, Helen Brown and Glennis Stewart had 35, Meryl Reed, 36, Rula Hatch and Jan Uhl had 37.
As usual Cherry Street Grille served a very good chicken salad luncheon. The dessert was bars made by Eileen Turner, Marsha Bruning and Karine Amundsen.
Sixty ladies were present for lunch. Doris Mitchell won the $5 membership drawing. Roberta Bensen's name was drawn but she was absent.
There were two tables of dominos and low was Jayne Merrigan and Pat Pratt. High was Ann Stewart and Karen Benson. Karen was also caught with the blank, as was Mary Bartels.
Dorothy Reed was in charge of bridge and winners were Doris Mitchell, Sarah Brown and Marsha Bruning. Jo Ellen won the travelers prize which was the player who won the last trick with the two of trump.
I overheard an interesting conversation on the course when a foursome was waiting to tee off. They were discussing their ailments and what to do for them. One lady said her doctor told her as a part of her diet to stay on greens as much as possible and that's the reason why she golfs every day.
Ladies play golf
Wow � our fine weather took a different route June 25 as did the play for the Wednesday morning golf. Wet course, no carts and nasty weather � but nevertheless two brave stalwart ladies decided to play.
The game they played was low score on the par fours. Our players Pat Berglund had 37 and Pat Steckelberg had 39.
Cherry Street Grille helped the ladies get in a better mood by the tasty beef luncheon they served to 32 ladies. Babe Hurowitz and Jo Willroth brought the desserts. Our guest was Lori Hurowitz.
The domino players had 11 present and from what the bridge players could tell they were having an exceptionally good time from all the laughing.
High was Jayne Merrigan and Ardyce Meisenholder, low was Karine Amundsen and Lori Hurowitz.
An interesting thing happened as Ardyce Meisenholder was caught with a double blank for the most times, which was three. Darlene Engbrecht, Jayne Merrigan and Pat Pratt all one time.
Marsha Bruning has always been able to come up with different ideas and today she brought four special prizes. She played a different number game and those who were fortunate to have the right numbers she had passed out were Pat, Sarah, June and Meryl.
The bridge players had four tables and the winners were June Wagner, Dorothy Reed, Meryl Reed and Jan Uhl.
Fun Golf League
It was a fine day for golf and 38 seniors responded with some fine golf. We had some new members this date, Joe Zuppo and Tim O'Connor. We also had a visitor from Arizona, a former regular at The Bluffs, in the person of Atwell Stewart, a friend and a fine golfer. In addition we had a regular, Mo Marcotte, join the 80 and older gang so now Mo hits from the red tees.
Our top team this date was Rod Tieman, Pete Bergland, and Tom Walker with a 37. Other prize winners were, at 37, Sid Davis, Vern Christensen, Duncan McGregor; Mo Marcotte, Quentin Oleson, and Joe Conroy; then at 38, Elmer Mount, Ken Beringer, and Howard Connors, with the team of Max Andersen, Jim Reedy, and Loren Carlson and the team of Ross Johnson, Bob Lund, and Berwyn Svoboda followed by, at 39, Shorty Hanson, Jim Grabowski, Ted Van Brugger, and Milo Gilbertson then at 40, Vern Holter, Atwell Stewart, Ray Lynn, and Don Bensen.
Birdies were hard to get with only five reported. Our shot of the day honors go to Tom Walker who drove the green on #12 and made a 30 foot birdie putt. Special mention goes to Sid Davis who chipped in on #14 from 20 yards out and Jim Grabowski for his 40 foot putt for par on #10.
See you next on July 8 at The Bluffs. Check in early, play starts at 9:30 a.m. sharp.
On June 19 with cool breezes and temps in the low 80s the seventh week of league play (before a two-week hiatus ) was contested on the front nine at The Bluffs. The course appeared slightly benign as there were a couple 35s, a par 36, and several under 40 scores.
Rick Haught won the scratch pool at 36. Jere Chapman and Ron Johnson shared the net pool with 31s. Brian Steele won for closest to the pin on #8; and longest putt on #9 went to Randy Stueffen who had the embarrassing score of 10 on the hole.
Results for the week in the American division had best scores for Still Smokin' and Recuerdos/Silver Dollar both with 16. Playing summer rules has made some of an effect on the scoring on the tournament ready course. Low individual scratch score of 37 went to Jeremi Cowman (net 31), and Jon Dimmick. Greg Baedke � 38 and Nick Hovden � 39 were the other under 40 scores. Dave Geise and Doug Bye scored 40 with Bye netting 32. There were 13 birdies reported for the day with Baedke and Dimmick each recording two Drew Barness claimed an eagle on #6.
The National division had three teams with high point scores: Pros � 16.5; and First National � 16; and Bluffs Boys � 15.5, each of whom maintained or bettered their places in the standings. Several players had scratch scores 40 and under, with a 35 (net 30) for Gary Prosser, and Eric Stevens; Haught (36); Mike Anderson � 37 (net 30); Bill Willroth (38); Ron Johnson � 40 (net 31), and Mike Wettstein � 40 (net 33). Twenty three birdies were reported, three each for Stevens and Prosser; two each were claimed by Willroth, Anderson, and Wettstein.
