First Food Bank event a success

Bird Homestead Golf Report

Posted: Tuesday, August 09, 2005

On Sunday August, we held our first and hopefully annual Kenai Peninsula Food Bank Tournament. Close to $350 was raised and we hope to do even better next year.

The winning team consisted of Dick Gallaway, Roy Bird and Len Janson. Long drive for the men went to Sam Morford and for the ladies long-drive honors went to Sissy Bird. Closest to the pin went to John Brewer and Mary Ann Pickard. We would like to thank all that came out for this great event.

Don’t forget about our Fall Classic on Aug. 27. It’s only $260 per team and lots of prizes will be awarded, including trips for two.

As always, Ladies Night is Mondays at 6:30 p.m. and Men’s Night is Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. Come out and see what everyone is calling the best-kept secret on the peninsula.

Golf Tip Of The Week

I learned a big lesson this last weekend at the Kenai Chrysler Golf Championship at the Kenai Golf Course. You should always read the back of your scorecard to find out the local rules. Not reading the back of my scorecard could have cost me a lot of money if I had been in contention. If you’re ever in doubt on a rule, remember that you can always play two balls. Then when you are done with your round you can figure out which ruling was correct.

I want to thank everyone at the Kenai Golf Course for all of their hard work. I didn’t play as well as I had hoped, but I’ve never had more fun at a tournament.

The Bird Homestead Golf Course is located at Mile 12 on Funny River Road.
