First night of play for W.E.L.L.
The weather came through for our first night of competitive play, a reprieve from the cold of fun night a week ago. Eighteen teams came out to golf and enjoy the company. Opening things up on a high note, playing the front nine, were Karrie Plate, who shot the low gross score of 35 and Ann Jensen with the low net of 30 (47-17).
Our hosts for the evening were the Plain J.A.N.E.S., helped along by W.E.L.L. funds which provided appetizers. Our hosts awarded pin prizes for the longest drive on #2, which went to Karrie Plate, the longest putt on #5, which was won by Jennifer Steele (nice recovery from your eight putts on hole #6 on fun night), and closest to the pin on #8, awarded to Ruby Plate (keeping those prizes in the family). The Quackson was won by Barb Ballensky.
Out on the course a number of ladies had hot hands and started out being able to remove their pigs from the tree their first night out. Netting birdies were Nikkie Erickson on #2, Karrie Plate on #3, Judy Hanson, Kathy Merrigan-Manning and Jennifer Steele (with a long putt) on #5 and Ruby Plate on #8 (not wasting her closest to the pin shot). Playing the back 9, LeAnn Safar scored a birdie on #18.
In addition to golf balls, there was apparently a lot of sand flying on hole #6. Susan Oberle had a little trouble with the sand there. Her second shot landed in the first sand trap. She hit out of that trap only to land in the third sand trap. Coming out of there the ball shot over the green and into the fence line. Finally she landed one on the green, after her drop in the sand from the fence line. We won�t count those strokes here in public.
Senior golfers hit the links
May 10 came in mostly cloudy with a good E/SE breeze. In spite of possible showers, 38 seniors came out to enjoy the game.
Scores were not the best but two teams came in with a 37. Leaders were Sid Davis, Ken Beringer and Howard Connors, followed by the team of Bob Boone, Cleland Cook and Quentin Oleson.
Two teams shot a 38: Mo Marcotte, Turk Pilker and Dick Gregory, plus Elmer Mount, Tim O�Connor and Bill Wilson (a guest of Tim today).
Prize winners at 39 were Shorty Hansen, Jim Grabowski and Gene Iverson, followed closely by Dave Bak, Jim Reed and Bob Lund.
Shot of the day honors go to two men from the same team. Bob Boone sunk a 36-foot birdie putt on #6 and Quentin Oleson hit a 36-foot birdie putt on hole #2.
Play will resume on Tuesday, May 17 at 1 p.m. sharp. We will alter our play on May 24, the following Tuesday, when play will move to Monday, May 23 because of a conflict for use of the course. We will repeat this warning next week.
