good day of golf
July 14 was another good day for golf and 16 players took advantage of it. Helen Brown and Jan Uhl signed up the players to play dice.
Must be several gamblers who like to roll the dice as we played once this year. The best throwers were � Helen Brown, 13; Lynn Hatle, 18; Darlene Engbrecht, 22; JoAnne Berringer, 25; Karon Benson, 25; and Rula Hatch, 25. After each score the dice is rolled and that number subtracted from your score.
Cherry Street Grille served 38 ladies Sloppy Joes. The dessert of chocolate sundaes was served by Arlene DeVaney, Lynette Spencer and Vaneta Youngworth.
Pat and Jeanne were co-chairman � the five winners were Lynette Spencer and Sue Ann Stutheit. Happy Birthday was sung to Robin Eisenberger for her 90th birthday. Mary Bartles entertained us with a joke � she also was in charge of 15 domino players.
High was Ardyce Meisenholder, Gayle Bliss, Lynette Spencer. Lows, Mary Bartels, Jan Chapman and Lynn Hatle.
Lynette Spencer won the traveling prize for the double aught � twice. There were four tables of bridge. Arlene DeVany gave prizes to Sue Ann Stutheit for sign up and first to declare a hundred honors. High scorer was Jeanne Van Balen, first to have a hand with three jacks was Thelma Raines.
Wednesday, July 7, was a great night for Wednesday Evening Ladies League golf on the back nine. Our hosts for the evening were the Lucky Shots who gave out pin prizes and collected our quarters for the Quackson drawing. Winning the pin prizes were Sheri Ellis for the closest second shot on #10, Kelly Heine for coming closest to the sand on #15 without going in, and Nikki Peters for the longest putt on #18. Inside the clubhouse, Sue Navrat won the Quackson drawing and took home the cash.
The course yielded few birdies, only on the par three holes. Hole #12 yielded two, one to Sheri Ellis and one to Edith Nelson. Hole #17 was birdied by Susan Oberle. Sheri Ellis capped her night by shooting the low gross score of 43.
Two players tied for the low net: Shelly Brunick and Polly Stewart both netted a 33, but by different means. Shelly shot a 57, with a 24 handicap, and Polly shot a 58 with a 25 handicap.
Our hosts for Wednesday Evening Ladies League on the evening of July 14 were the Mollies Follies. They gave us a warm, windless night for golf on the front 9. Our hosts did not place pin prizes on the course, but asked us to keep track of the number of putts that were made on each hole. For most of us this merely points out where a large number of our stokes come from.
In fact, it was suggested that one measure of golf prowess might be to determine what percentage of the total score was derived from putting. Nevertheless, prizes were awarded to Mary Vlasman for the lowest total number of putts, 14, and to Cheryl Seney for the most putts, 28. To round things out a prize was awarded to Donna Schott for the best poker hand of five 7s. Winning the Quackson was Val Anderson.
The front nine yielded better scores than the back did last week. Shooting the low gross was Karrie Plate with a 35. Kate Geise shot her best score so far this summer and had the low net of 28 (46-18). Welcome back to league play, Kate. Unlike last week, none of the par three holes yielded birdies. Karrie Plate had two birdies, one on #1 and one on #4. The only other birdie came on #6 for Wendy Johnson.
The shot of the night, however, goes to Jennifer Steel. She hit a strong drive on #6, ending up to the left of the 200 yard marker. She lined up for her second stroke and hit the ball well. The ball traveled 50 yards and hit the 150 yard marker stake. When I hit the stake, the ball bounces off and dribbles to a stop. The ball Jennifer hit was moving with such force, it lifted the 150 yard post out of its slot and drove it 8 yards down the fairway. The ball managed another 20 yards before stopping. The post was returned, unscathed, and play went on.
Hot, humid day
can't stop seniors
Tuesday, July 20, dawned with a threat of thunderstorms but 37 participants ventured out for Senior Men's Fun Golf.
Leading the pack today with a score of 35 was the team of Mo Marcotte, Lloyd Helseth and Gene Iverson.
Two teams followed with 37 scores. They were, in order of tie-breakers, Van Pierce, Ted Van Bruggen and Rod Tiemens; and Jim Stewart, Vern Holter and Berwyn Svoboda. At 38 was the team of Dave Bak, Butch Parkinson and Jack Doyle. Next at 39 was Jerry Sommervold, Pat Boyle and Ron Turner.
Two teams at 40 happened to win balls this day. They were Shorty Hanson, Jim Grabowski, Quentin Oleson and Louie Fostvedt; and Mel Marcotte Jim Reed and Jack Stewart.
Guests today were Butch Parkinson of Irene, brought in by Dave Bak and Jerry Bartels with Fritz Bartels.
Seven birdies were made on the bottom nine, mostly on holes 12 and 17. Shot of the day was claimed by Jim Stewart for a 15-foot birdie putt of #12.
The team missed the services of Howard Connors who was attending a family reunion but will be back next week.
The teams are vying for the services of Berwyn Svoboda who will pass the 80 mark this week.
