Birch Ridge still has 2 important tournaments before snow starts to fly

As golfing season winds down, don't forget two of the most fun, important tournaments of the year are still left to play. The first is the Peninsula Senior Tournament.


It will be Friday and Saturday and include 18 holes of competitive play per day. It will be scratch play, flighted by age and handicap. Men's flights are for ages 50 to 64, and 65 and over. Women's flights are for 50 to 59, and 60 and older.

Golfers must sign up by today no later than 6 p.m. Call 262-5270 or come in to the pro shop to sign up.

The second tournament is the Cold Weather Classic. The format for this event is a man and woman Scotch double. There will be awards for first and second place low gross and first and second place low net.

The event will be held Sept. 24. Tee-off time will be dependent on weather. We're assuming an 11 a.m. shotgun start. Call the pro shop for more information.

Winding up league play for the week, the senior men played Monday. Ed Robinson and Tom Boedeker tied for first with a 31. They then flipped a coin to see who would be awarded prizes, but Tom Boedeker did not trust Ed's coin, so they decided to split the prize.

Ed Robinson was closest to the pin on the sixth and Don McGhee was closest to on the eighth. Chuck Rider had the longest putt. Next week on Monday the seniors will tee off at 10 a.m. and celebrate their last senior day with pizza.

The Ladies of the Morning also had unofficial league play Tuesday, but again they obviously didn't want the public to know who won, so again no information.

Couples had a beautiful night Wednesday, but only four couples showed up to play. They played a handicapped, nine-hole team scramble. The winners were Steve and Sally Tachick, and Dee Richards and Don McGhee. The losers were Darell and Susan Jelsma, and Tom and Tanya Boedeker.

They also decided that would be their last night of couples for the season, but they will play together again as couples in the Cold Weather Classic.

Fall weather is beautiful, the course is beautiful, come on out and get in your last rounds for the season. You'll be happy you did when the snow starts falling.
