Men's night going strong at Bird Homestead Golf Course

Men's night is still going strong at Bird Homestead Golf Course. We had another great turnout Tuesday night with 21 guys showing up to play, no matter what the weather.


Roy Bird took the long drive on No. 3 and Justin Bird had a pure birdie on No. 1. Gary Rogers won the closest to on No. 6 and Jeff Gilman had the closest to on No. 8.

The guys ended the night with a three-way chip-off for first and second place. All three teams came in with an even par. After two attempts, Paul Zimmerman, Tim Moeglein and Tom Sigurdson took first, and Danny Hughes, Scott Sundberg and Roy Bird took second.

It has been decided that we will get at least one more week of men's night with the guys teeing off at 6 p.m. Tuesday.

On Sunday, it will be Bird Homestead vs. Birch Ridge. This is an 18-hole tournament played at both courses. This is the fourth annual B&B.

The tournament entry forms must be in by 6 p.m. Friday. All players must be checked in at Birch Ridge by 8 a.m. Sunday with tee time being 9 a.m. The first nine holes will be played at Birch Ridge. A snack will be served after that, then everyone will be off to Bird Homestead for the second nine-hole round, with a dinner following tournament play.

If you haven't got your entry form they are available at both clubhouses. This tournament is open to anyone who wants to play. If you don't have a team, we will be happy to help you build one. If you will need a power cart at either course be sure to contact the clubhouses to reserve one. Come out and show your support for your course.

The annual Glow Ball entry form is available at Bird Homestead clubhouse and is scheduled for Sept. 17. This is the final tournament of the season for Bird Homestead and is always packed full of fun and people. If you want to play be sure to get your entry in soon, as the tourney is already filling up quickly.

There will be the standard chili feed before play and the bonfire afterward. Glow Ball is a two-person team and is limited to the first 27 teams. We will not have carts available for this tournament but you will find the course is an easy walk.

Bird Homestead Golf Association wrapped up the annual Bird Cup with Amanda Bird and Mark Hordemann coming out on top and Marty Radvansky and Greg Harrington taking second. Justin Bird and JE Wells came in third. The association will be holding its final meeting Saturday at 2:30 to present awards and elect officers for next season. We will be doing a fun round after the meeting to practice for Sunday, so be sure to join us.

We only have a couple more weeks of the season left, be sure to come and visit us at Mile 11.8 Funny River Road.
