The kids’ program had their tournament on Thursday of last week and will be having the awards pizza and ice cream party this Thursday. Feel free to come cheer for your favorite Jr Golfers. Winners will be posted next week.
The ladies have been gaining numbers and more ladies find out how fun and easy-going the group is. I think they had 16 ladies out in 4 groups this week. The weather has been just marvelous in the late afternoons lately and the sound of women’s laughter is a cheerful noise out there.
The Jesse and Mighty Memorial Tournament was a huge success with nine teams competing. Activities included a Splash for Cash competition, Mulligans for sale, a “toss” shot, which is an extra free shot that you must throw but does not cost you a stroke. There were also quite a few spectators who rented golf carts and made the rounds visiting their friends and enjoying the good-natured teasing. There were also quite a few postings on Social Media that can be found of the younger folks being silly and having fun and a few of the little kids tagging along with parents. Taylor’s Sausage served a burger lunch following the tournament. Jesse’s Dad, Ken was kept company all afternoon and after the tournament at his post on #8 teebox, where we have a lounge chair in which he keeps track of closest to the pin shots.
Winners were: 1st Tyler, Mike, Brandon, Andy; 2nd Matt, Gabe, Jesse, Lucas; 3rd Graham, James, Colby, Casey; 4 h Rhino, Ali, Woody, Dusty. KPs were won by Tyler, Mike, Gabe and Andy. Long drive was won by Moe.
And finally, about 12 of us traveled to Centennial for the annual Sasquatch Pro-Am Tournament. The tournament had 240 golfers playing in two flights, first flight starting at 7:45 (after a hosted party until late in the evening Friday night) and the second flight starting at 2, ending at about 8 p.m. They served us nice meals all three days and all we had to do was golf. Our group was John, Todd, David D’Lynn’s high school golf buddy-Ron and me. D’Lynn brought Troy, Poke, Tyler and Dave Muswieck. We also had Dustin, Danny, Roger Demouy, Adam from Illinois Valley, who joined up with Patty Dodero from Red Bluff. We got to see a bunch of old friends from GP golf club, Rogue Valley, Centennial, Beau Pre and Applegate.
We also met some new friends from local courses and some more new ones from beyond the Rogue Valley. Winners included: Tyler with a low net of 65 for winnings of about $350; Poke with some cash for a low net score; Troy with some money and David Scott with some nice prize winnings. David has some Bud Bros logo balls printed up and we both played the same ball and I teased him about always picking the best shot because we had the same ball. He finally drew a blue line on his to prove that his shot was best, bursting my fragile ego.
