Birch Ridge Report: Fall coming fast to the peninsula ...

Posted: Thursday, August 21, 2003

I'm surmising that folks are getting ready for autumn; hence, the small turnout for last week's Wednesday Men's Night.

(You may think this is the last time you have to mow the lawn odds are, you're wrong.)

The winning team included Jay Kriner, Tony Azarra and Phil Christensen. Tony took closest-to-the-pin honors on hole six, long drive, and scored a pure birdie. At least he left closest-to on eight to Charles Benson.

One more Monday to go and the mighty seniors are still out in droves. This last Monday found Darel Jelsma and "the girls" Louise Schadle and Chiya Bazan garnering first place. Chiya beat everybody out for closest-to on hole eight; Ray Hamby for hole six. Long putt on hole two went to Don McGhee.

Regular season play in the men's Birch Ridge Cup was completed last week. Red Division winners were none other than John Lansing and Gary Dawkins; Phil Turkington and Jim McWilliams took first place in the Blue Division. Playoffs for the top four teams in each division are still progressing.

Tuesday will be the playoff finals with a format of three holes of Scotch twosomes, three holes of scramble and three holes of best ball. Kudos and punch will follow. Have a great time, gentlemen.

The Bassackward Tournament will be held here at Birch Ridge Saturday. All proceeds from this fun-time tourney will go to the Junior Golf Association. Call the Pro Shop for more information.

Sept. 6 and 7 will be the combined Soldotna-Kenai tournament. Our own Cold Weather Classic will be held Sept. 27. More on these great events next time.
