Birch Ridge gears up for end-of-season Cold Weather Classic

The last “official” Seniors Day was Monday, and 12 guys showed up.


John Davis (KSRM fame) won with a 32 net. Frank Harper had the longest putt and Chuck Rider had the closest to on No. 8.

No one hit the green on No. 6, so the money just went into the party fund that was used to purchase pizza and beverages.

Ed Robinson’s wife brought a wonderful cake for dessert. Even though Monday was the last “official” Senior Day, the seniors are going to continue to play at 10 a.m. Mondays until the snow or frost run us off the course.

Ladies of the Morning League

We had seven ladies and one man show up for and unofficial Ladies of the Morning League on Tuesday.

The ladies played for the best poker hand and the winner of the event was Tanya Boedeker with a full house, 9s over 6s.

The weather was beautiful, partly cloudy with sun, warm and no rain. The ladies will also continue to play at 10 a.m. Tuesdays, weather permitting. Of course, we continue to lose the occasional snow birds from now on.

Cold Weather Classic

The Cold Weather Classic is our last tournament of the year, coming up Saturday.

Many of the prior participants consider this the best tournament of the year. The format is a scotch double with a two-person team consisting of a couple further described as a man and a woman.

There will be an 11 a.m. shotgun start. Trophies will be awarded to the first-place low gross and first-place low net team, and gift certificates will be awarded to first and second low gross teams as well as first and second low net teams.

Please sign up no later than 6 p.m. Friday. Call 262-5270 to sign up.

As usual Birch Ridge Golf Course will continue to be open until either the snow or frost drive us away. Daylight hours continue to be shorter and frost delays could occur. Call 262-5270 to check weather conditions and for tee times.
