May 1st 2019

Fourteen golfers (including one guest….Derek Southern) turned out to play. The competition for the day was closest to the pin on the second shot on the 7th hole as established by our starter Dave Perkins.  However, it seems the team of Phil Philpot., Dick Hixson, Roger Lakwara and Frank Kilarr who were tasked with leaving the tape measure and score sheet at the 7th hole were so engrossed in ????? that they forgot to leave the tape and recording note pad at the hole….net, net no competition for the day event this week;  how many golfers does it take to remember ………   As a group we had 13 pars and 1 birdie and low score for the day was a second lowest of the year 39 shot Dick Hixson.

August 8th 2018
Twenty one players turned out despite the smokey conditions, not a good day for those with respiratory problems!
Competition for the day was closest to the pin, hole #4, won by Rich Knowles at 24′ 5″ (unfortunately, no birdie). Low score for the day was also Rich with a 42.
Bob Sherman made a great birdie on hole # 4 and additionally the group had 19  pars.
Thanks to Don Atwater and Glen Gilman for reinstating the “gift box” for the CTP competition. Once again the winner will be able to choose a prize (a piece of golf stuff?) from the box instead of an “attaboy”. Unfortunately this is not retroactive! (Sorry Judd).

August 1st 2018
Twenty players turned out under the watchful eye of Mike Anderson who arrived with a supply of muffins (flattened but very edible!).
The group had 19 pars with one birdie. Low score for the day was a 41 shot by Rich Knowles (this is becoming a regular occurrence, is there no competition out there?). 
Competition for the day was closest to the pin on hole #3 won by Bob Jones with a shot to 14′ 9″.

July 25th 2018
19 players turned out on a very hot July day. With a twist on contests Rich Knowles decided closest to the pin on the second shot on hole #4 was appropriate (a little ironic on the shortest hole on the course) won by Bob Jones! Low gross for the day was a 41 shot by Barry Brown and the group as a whole had 19 pars and one birdie carded by Hans Pable on hole # 7, way to go Hans!
 It was nice to see a fleet of new golf carts awaiting those who chose to ride although the increase in fees was not so well received! Next month we welcome Mike Anderson as our leader so lets have a good turn out.
The monthly stats for July will be posted shortly,courtesy of Mike Frey,  take a look at your performance!

July 18th 2018
A very warm day and our Marshall. Rich Knowles turned up with donut holes ready to send players out! 
Contest for the day was closest to the pin on hole #4, won by Phil Philpot at 26′ 4″, which qualified for on the green realistically rather than closest to the hole, but as no one else managed to land and stay on the green it wins!
The group as a whole had 18 pars and 1 birdie and low score for the day was a fine 40 shot by Mike Frey.
