Birch Ridge Report: Scramble: Strive, struggle and grapple

Posted: Thursday, May 22, 2003

To "scramble" in golf is to play a format where all members of a foursome give it their best drive and then hit successive shots from the ball position of the player with the best lie (whew!).

My personal definition? Strive, struggle and grapple. With apologies to my mate, that's why you won't see my name amongst the following:

Couples Golf

Sunday was our first Couples Golf at Birch Ridge Golf Course. Judy and Tom Walsh were our lucky first-place scratch winners, trailed closely by Myrna and Pat Cowan in second place.

First-place handicap was Kathleen and Jerry Herring; Sharon and Dave Keating proudly placed second in that division.

Our next scheduled Couples Golf is June 8. Come on out ... be not afraid.

Men's Night

Wednesday's Men's Night was another successful trek into the realm of hit or miss.

George Stein arrived closest to the pin on hole No. 6, as did Roy Stuckey (familiar name, yes?) on hole No. 8.

Pete Wolf showed up with the longest drive for hole No. 4 and Rob Smithwick showed them all how to score a pure birdie on hole No. 8.

Upcoming Events

A couple of reminders:

Men's Birch Ridge Cup matches start the week of June 2. May 28 is your deadline, gentlemen. Bring $100 for your twosome to the pro shop to get your names down. Now.

Don't forget, June 9 is the start of Junior Golf clinics. If you haven't done so yet, give Tom Walsh a call at the pro shop and sign up.

Hey, how do you think Annika got started.

Show 'em what you're made of.
