It is hard to believe that summer is coming to a close and that we only have about a month left to play golf this year. And what an amazing summer we have had -- the weather has been great and the golf course remains in great shape.
There have been quite a few holes in one this year, the most recent by Richard "Ace" Atuk on hole No. 8. Others who have had the great fortune of getting a hole in one this year include Taylor Jackson, Derrill Weaver, Mike Chenault, and Mo Redford.
While there are no official results to report, seniors continue to play on Mondays. Check with the Pro Shop at 262-5270 to get tee times.
The team of Jay Kriner, Darrell Jelsma and Dan Gensel took home first place at Men's Night last week. Mike Hollingsworth's short game was in fine shape as he picked up closest to the pin honors on both hole No. 6 and hole No. 8. Ezra Johnson had the long drive on hole No. 2.
As the days are getting shorter, tee times for Men's Night will be adjusted with the last Men's Night of the year scheduled for next Wednesday.
Women's Birch Ridge Cup
Final standings in Women's Birch Ridge Cup for the regular season are: In first place, the team of Myrna Cowan and Jan Stenga; and in second place, the team of Barb Winkler and Lynne Reynolds.
With the regular season coming to a close early in the year, the women decided to extend play. Nan Weaver and Tana Chenault were victorious in the second half of the Women's Birch Ridge Cup. Pat Bird and Rhonda Dittmer took second while Myrna and Jan captured third place.
The end of season party for Women's Birch Ridge Cup will be Sunday at the Pro Shop beginning at 4 p.m. Please RSVP by Friday by leaving a message for Jan or Myrna at the Pro Shop. As winners of the regular season, Jan and Myrna have agreed to barbecue steaks for all Women's Birch Ridge Cup participants. Hope to see you there!
Mark your calendars for the last tournament of the year. The Cold Weather Classic is scheduled for Sept. 28. This is a wonderful event and a great opportunity to get out and enjoy the beautiful fall colors with your friends and neighbors.
The course is still in great shape and there is opportunity to play golf before winter.
Get out and enjoy it!
