It was a fun day, too, for we had a guest, Dick Gates, from Chamberlain, introduced by Berwyn Svoboda. He is a fine golfer and a former outstanding baseball player in his younger years.

Ladies rained

out Wednesday

Having received over four inches of rain in the previous couple days, pull carts were the only option for the day. Five gals decided to venture out but only four holes were completed before the rain brought the players back to the clubhouse.

The golf committee was Darlene Engbrecht and Helen Brown and two clubs and a putter was the game. Since only four holes were completed prizes were awarded for � longest drive on #4, Darlene Engbrecht; chip in on #1 by Helen Brown; closest to the pin on #5, Jan Uhl; most fun in the rough on #4, Rula Hatch; closest to the pin on #2, Ardyce Meisenholder.

Cherry Street Grille served 27 ladies for lunch. Peg Amant and JoEllen Tipton furnished a variety of cheese cakes for desserts. Jeanne VanBalen announced more volunteers are needed for next year's committees. Glendae Anderson was a guest. Rydella Engman won the five dollar drawing.

Rain falls early

for senior golfers

Some rain fell in the early morning and more was predicted for early afternoon on Tuesday, Sept. 21, but the 38 seniors gave it a try and finished the back nine without rain bothering them. We were happy to have Buzz Richardson as a guest this date. Remember Buzz, you are always welcome here at The Bluffs.

All prize winners this date scored 37 or 38 strokes so the score on handicap holes became important in placing the teams for prizes. Our winners at 37 were Bob Boone, Louie Fostvedt and Ray Lynn. Congratulations to these senior regulars for this steady play.

Two additional teams at 37 were Harlan Schott, Ken Beringer and Ron Brown, joined by Van Pierce, Cleland Cook, Howard Connors and Gene Iverson. Then at 38 we found four teams: Turk Pilker, Jim Reed and Dave Zimmer, then Sid Davis, Jim Grabowski and Vern Christensen, followed by Buzz Richardson, Ross King, Maurice Erickson and Bob Lund, and finally Don Baer, Jerry Sommervold and Jack Doyle.

The seniors had eight birdies this date, with hole 14 yielding four of the eight.

Our shot-of-the-day awards go to two senior regulars, Ron Brown and Howard Connors. Ron was recommended for a great approach shot on #14 that led to a birdie and Howard for a 29-foot birdie putt on #17. Congratulations, men.

Play for the seniors will be at the regular time through the month of September with a 9:30 a.m. tee time. In October we will return to the afternoon schedule with senior lunch at 11:15 a.m. and tee time at 1 p.m. sharp.

This year the South Dakota State Championship Golf Tournament for Class A men will be held on Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 4-5 at The Bluffs course. Seniors will shift to Wednesday, Oct. 6 for one week only and play our afternoon schedule.
