On Thursday, April 6, the 2006 Mens' League met and elected officers for the upcoming season at The Bluffs.
Co-presidents are Kurt Kuiper and Wade Hansen, who appointed Rusty Jensen as treasurer.
This is a handicap league, so each member must pay an annual fee of $20 to activate their handicap � pay at the Pro Shop.
If you intend to have a team this year, please let the pro shop staff or league officers know soon.
TEAM CAPTAINS � please get the team roster to Rusty or Eric ASAP.
There will be a team scramble on May 11 (make your own tee times). There will be free food served between 7:30 and 9:30 p.m.
Regular league play commences May 18 (shotgun tee-offs at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.)
Scoring system will be the same as last year � match is worth 2 points, one per session; medal is worth 2 points, one per session; each hole won is worth 1 point (9 points per session); and one point added for total medal. Twenty-three points available per week.
W.E.L.L. all strung out on fun night
The Wednesday Evening Ladies League kicked off the 2006 season April 26 with a fun night that involved the use of string to help move the ball in the right direction.
Each player received a card wrapped with string. The amount of string was determined by their handicap. The string could then be used anywhere on the course to get a player out of trouble, into the fairway or into the hole. That is, as long as the golfer had string remaining, the ball could be moved from where it was lying to a new position by a length of string.
The amount of string used was then cut from the starting material, leaving less to be used on future holes. Needless to say, no one's scores from this evening will be used in computing their handicap, as most string was used to move the ball those remaining few inches into the hole. Oh, and by the way, moving the ball with string did not count as a stroke.
Three prizes were awarded for string management technique. One prize was awarded for the most string remaining. This was won by Tammy Baisden. On the other end, a prize was given for the least string remaining, which went to Robin Miskimins (probably due to greater need [or poorer golfing?]). A third prize was awarded to Pat Durkin for having a length of string left that was closest to one foot long.
In addition, there were a variety of string management techniques discovered among the players. Susan Oberle had no string left, indicating the "complete utilization" technique was at play. One player ran out of string by their third hole, the "use it all at once" (or why save it for later?) technique. All in all, a good time was had by everyone.
