Bird Homestead Golf Report: Bird Homestead playoffs finished

Posted: Friday, August 13, 2010

Bird Homestead Golf Association had its final playoff this Sunday at 2 p.m. What an exciting couple of matches. The third-place team of Mark Hordemann and Jackie Risch beat out the fourth-place team of Rob Bird and Faith Link by one hole. Steve and Susan Ellis beat out Jeff Gillman and Richard Harman to take the Bird Cup. There was an excellent spread of food prepared by Judi Artman and Jeff Gillman. They both worked for days preparing a great feast for the golfers and the gallery of people who showed to support the playoff teams.

Even with the first day of bow season we still had 12 men show for men's night Tuesday. Carl Forsyth took long drive of the night. Neil Warren took the pot for closest to on the eighth hole, landing 19 feet from the cup, and Al Dettmer took the sixth hole, landing 20 feet, 4.5 inches, from the cup. Nice job guys.

Frank Keener, Max Carpenter and Neil Warren beat out the rest of the boys, shooting 1 under par. It has been a great season for the guys and we hope to continue to see you all on Tuesday nights.

We did see some folks for the Senior's Plus on Wednesday morning. Marilyn Eskelin and Steve Ellis were the first-place winners of the morning and Steve Ellis had the longest putt of the morning. No one landed a drive on the sixth or eighth holes so those pots will be there for next week.

College Heights Baptist Church held its annual Coed Tournament on Saturday morning with a very nice turnout. They had 14 golfers show for the day even with the rain. They got rained on most of the day but it was such a great cause that no one minded getting a little wet. Al and Rhonda Dettmer prepared a great meal for everyone. The food was ready when they finished golfing.

Our next scheduled tournament is open to everyone -- the Bird Birthday tournament. This is just a fun event celebrating all the Bird's birthdays. This tournament has been put on by the Bird Homestead Golf Association since its inception and is always a lot of fun. There will be a great meal after golfing so come out and join us Aug. 22. Call if you would like to reserve a power cart as they are limited.

We still have entry spaces available for the Fall Classic on Aug. 28. Be sure to get your entry in soon as this is usually a full tournament. There will be a lot of great prizes and Pat Bird is looking to do something special for dinner afterward. Power carts are limited so call the clubhouse if you need to reserve one.

You can always call for a tee time or just come out to Mile 11.8 Funny River Road and we will be sure to get you out on the course. Our time is running short so get in as much as you can before it is over.
