Greetings and happy golfing from Bird Homstead Golf Course, located at Mile 11.8 Funny River Road.
We have been open now for about two weeks and men's night started Tuesday evening, with 20 golfers showing up and enjoying the great weather that has made us all remember why we love the great Alaska summers, even though it seems a little late this year.
Five teams teed it up at 6:30 p.m. and they wound up with the usual chip-off on the infamous ninth hole for first place.
The team of Royce Yeager, Trevor Baldwin, Steve Skolnik and Justin Rasmussin took the victory. Trevor Hordeman won long drive on the third, Roy Bird got closest to the pin on No. 6 and Trevor Baldwin raked in the money on No. 8 with pure birdie. Since there was some holdover money from last season he was really happy.
It was great to see all the guys and I hope to see even more next week. Ladies night will begin next week Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. The seniors and anyone who wants to join them for a fun day will begin next week also, Wednesday at 10 a.m.
The Moose tournament will open our tournament season on June 8. The Bird Homestead Golf Association string tournament will be June 15. Their goal this year is to hold junior clinics for eight weeks.
They also plan on putting up a building in which all association members will be able to store their clubs for the season.
We will still have $1 per hole on Mondays and 2 for 1 on Thursdays. Hope to see you all out on the links.
