Season’s end not far away

Bird Homestead Golf Report

Posted: Friday, September 22, 2006

Fall is in the air, colors are beautiful and the course is playing superbly! Hello again from Bird Homestead Golf Course, 11.8 miles out Funny River Road. Welcome to another week in the continuing saga of fun here at the course. As we are all aware, the season is quickly coming to an end, so come out and get in a few more rounds before the snow claims the fairways and greens and the only golf here will be in our dreams of the upcoming year.

First and foremost, we want to thank everyone who showed their support by coming out and playing, being involved in the tournaments we held here and cheering us on in our quest to make this course an enjoyable experience. For our workers, who strived to keep the fairways and greens in great shape, and the pro shop workers who tried to give all here an all-around hard time! To Elmer and Pat Bird, for their vision and hard work.

Men’s night was a huge success this year, each and every week brought men out rain or shine, and nothing seemed to keep them away. This past week was no exception to the rule. There were 16 men on Tuesday night, four teams of four. Roy Bird’s team consisting of Roy Bird, Jerry Herring, Tyson O’Quinn and Dennis Linell, took first place with a 37. Long drive also went to Roy Bird. Not to be outdone, Dave Kimura took closest to on No. 6. However, the elusive No. 8 will carry over to next week. Come out and enjoy next week with these guys. They teed of at 6 p.m., but almost finished up in the dark, so next week’s tee time will be 5:30 p.m.

The last big hurrahs for the season will be held on Sept. 30, tee-off time at 8 p.m. No folks, this isn’t a typo, the tournament is held in the dark. Now everyone knows just how crazy we golfers really are.

The format for the Glo Ball Tournament will be a two-person team, scotch doubles. You can pick your partner, and the other team as well. However, at the end of play there will be a blind draw to see who your other team members really were. Prizes will be given accordingly, immediately following will be a chili dinner. Cost for this is $30 per person, which includes one glow ball and glow necklace for each person. Additional ball can be purchased at the pro shop. For more information, contact the course at 260-4653 or come on out to sign up. A great time will be had by all!

Until next week, dig out the cold-weather gear, pull down the hats and come join us on the fairways.
