Birch Ridge Report: Senior Tourney set to go

Posted: Thursday, July 22, 2004

Senior moment notwithstanding, forgive me for not mentioning this before. Starting July 22 (yes, that's today) the Peninsula Senior Amateur Tournament gets under way. Play today to qualify. Tonight, one of our trusty pro shop technicians will call you to let you know what your starting time is for Friday. (If my memory serves me correctly, I had a great time last year ... come on out and join me this year.)

The Family Affair winners have been posted. First-place winners were Bob Sizemore and Caleb "Little Size" Sizemore. Second placers were Mo Redford and Garrett Redford.

Between red runs, the men of Wednesday nights show up in full force. First placers last week were Dave Stein, Eric Boudreaux, Don McGhee and Jay Kriner (who also had a pure birdie on I-don't-know-which hole).

Undaunted second-place team members were Caleb Sizemore, Charles Benson, Mike Hollingsworth and Bill Rolph. Pat McElroy scored closest-to on No. 6, while No. 8 closest-to went to Eric Boudreaux. Long driver was Paul Zimmerman.

Our 31st Anniversary Par 3 Tourney took place last Saturday and was enjoyed by all who were lucky enough to play in it because they didn't have company! (Okay, I got that off my chest.)

The consensus is, however, that it may be renamed the Gary Stackhouse Par 3 Invitational. I mean gee, Gary, did you notice the other members of your team? First, he won three out of four closest-to pin prizes, then birdies No. 18 in a playoff for first against a team scoring 37. The man's a dynamo!

However, he did have help from play pals Judy Christiansen, Phil Turkington and Don McGhee. The other oh-so-close team was comprised of Mark Matarrese, Dave Stein, Jane Stein and Jan Stenga.

Tuesday morning ladies haven't caught the fishing bug, obviously. Team members Louise Schadle, Dee Richards, Kathi Nelson and Cheryl Hammarstrom won by one stroke, with fewest putts kudos shared by Elaine Anderson and Cheryl H. Kathi N. won closest-to on No. 6. Come join these fine friends next Tuesday for a scramble and potluck.

A few notes on August happenings: Soldotna Elks Charity Tourney is slated for August 7; August 21 is the date for the Bassackwards Tournament (for some reason I always do well on this one ... I'm not sure if that's a good sign.) Well, lest I forget, see you on the back nine!
