Birch Ridge Report: 'Fore!' Or rather, 'Duck!'

Posted: Thursday, September 04, 2003

I'm going duck hunting. Oh, don't get your feathers ruffled; I will be nowhere near a golf course, so no need to worry about anything straying your way.

In fact, if I hunt ducks as well as I play golf, we'll be eating Spam and turnips all winter.

But I digress.

Most of the players for last Wednesday's Men's Night competition must have gone on to their own respective duck shacks ... the winning team came in with only three players.

But a win is a win, what with John "where-do-I-live-now" Tongen, Dave Keating and Bob Sizemore coming in first.

There weren't enough players to round out second- and third-place teams, but Pete Wolfe and Charles Benson beat out the field for closest-to-the-pin honors on holes six and eight, respectively.

Long drive was performed by Tim Cowan, who also joined Papa Pat Cowan with a pure birdie on hole one.

Our sensational seniors just don't give up; 10 of these hearty souls played the back nine this Monday.

Gordon Briscoe had closest-to on hole six; Ray Hamby for hole eight.

George Collum not only had the longest putt on hole two, but beat out all for the day with low gross.

Eagle Glen Golf Course hasted a men's pro-am Monday, with our own illustrious Tom Walsh heading up a cast of winners.

For first place with a 20-under (yes, that's what I thought, too), Dandy Dan Murphy, Tony Azzara, Tim Walsh and Steve Dexheimer joined Tom for a great day on the links.

Tony showed a personal best with a 67. (Geez, the only time I'll personally see that number will be when I turn it.)

ONE MORE TIME: September 6 and 7, the combined two-day, two-course tournament that's this weekend!

Deadline to sign up is noon Friday at either course. Call Birch Ridge at 262-5270, or Kenai Golf Course at 283-7500.

A safari it's not, but I suppose I should get weapon and ammo ready (now that's hyperbole).

See you on the front nine!
