Bird Homestead report: Something to do every night of the week

Driving all the way out to mile 11.8 seems like a long drive, but it is worth every second. You will be amazed how nice the golf course looks, Larry Hamilton and his crew have been working hard to keep the fairways and greens in immaculate condition. The beautiful drive is well worth playing a round of golf on a beautiful golf course.


Bird Homestead has a weekly calendar that stays the same every week to accommodate all golfers:

Mondays: $1 a hole — all day

Tuesdays: Men’s Night — starts at 6:30 p.m.

Wednesdays: Ladies night — starts at 6:30 p.m.

Thursdays: bring a friend for buy a round, get a round free

We always love to see new golfers at the course. Don’t have your own clubs? No problem, we have some you can rent. Don’t want to walk a round of golf, that’s okay, that’s what golf carts are for, and we have those too!


Despite it being the second week in a row that it was pouring down rain on a Wednesday night, we still had 8 die hard ladies for ladies night last Wednesday. The team on top was he triple threat of Kelsey Slough, Sissy Bird and Kimberly Nickerson. On Hole No.3 Kelsey Slough had an amazing hit off the tee and smashed her drive winning her longest drive. It is amazing how someone so small can hit the ball so far.

Do you need a reason to get out of the house for an evening? Come join our group of ladies for a kid free, husband free round of golf. Skill level does not matter, we play best ball format and are out to have a good time. Tee off is at 6:30 p.m. every Wednesday night.


We had 27 men show up for men’s night on Tuesday. It was a lovely evening and the men had a great time. The shining stars of the night that one first place was the team of Roy Bird, Max Carpenter, and Duane Tachick. On hole No. 2 Trevor Baldwin hit an outstanding tee shot, winning him longest drive. He finished hole two with a pure birdie, winning him some money. Terry Johnson hit such a precise shot on No. 8 he won closest to the pin. Jeff Gilman hit a great tee shot on No. 6 and landed a mere eight inches away from the hole, winning him closest to the pin.

Mens night is every Tuesday evening at 6 p.m. New men are always invited. Format is a blind draw, best ball scramble.


Tonight’s the last night of our junior golf lessons. With all the interest we had this year, we will be doing again next year. Following the golf lessons tonight will be an awards ceremony.
