Kenai Golf Report

A great summer of golf

Posted: Wednesday, September 24, 2003

The weather is still allowing golfers to take advantage of the great condition of the course, especially for this time of the year. Aside from dealing with leaves on the greens, the greens are putting true. Many golfers are getting the last days of golfing in for 2003 one day at a time.

What a summer it has been! The golfing has been incredible!

Single scramble results

Over the weekend there was a Single Person Scramble and it appeared to have been a hit with the 30 participants. Golfers at one time or another have wanted to replay a shot. The format allowed each golfer to take two shots from tee to green.

Low gross went to Billy Applewhite with 66. Second gross went to Doug Jung with 68. Jesse Wade and Ken Liedes tied for third low gross at 70.

The net winner was Teresa Sibolboro with 48. Second net winner was Max Pate with 53. Third net winner was Shelley Ramsey with 56. Keith Stuart was fourth with 57.

The skin winners were Billy Applewhite, Jim Bradford, Mike Navarre and Rita Botelho.

Mixed Doubles

The mixed doubles had their last evening on Monday. Regulars to the event showed up and played the last holes with a winter chill evident and slightly in the dark.

The Dave and Shelley Ramsey team carded the fewest putts and lowest scores for the evening. Taking second place was the other regular mixed doubles team of Buzz and Patty Rome.

Working at the desk Monday evenings certainly has been fun. I have especially enjoyed dreaming up various formats for the event. Thanks to all the teams who showed up each Monday evening to play.

Glow Ball Tourney

Friday, there will be a Kenai Golf Association annual meeting at the clubhouse at 6:30 p.m. Kenai Cup awards will be presented along with the most improved golfers of the season. New board members will be elected.

All current KGA members in good standing will be eligible for drawing a 2004 season pass. One must be present to win the pass. There will be food served compliments of the Kenai Golf Association.

The Glow Ball Tourney will get under way at 9 p.m. Sign up at the pro shop. There will be teams of four playing a scramble in the dark. Get your team together or get on the list of those looking to be on a team.

Last Chance Partners Results

Partners recently played six scramble, six best ball and six alternating shots in an 18-hole tourney.

The low gross winners were Ken Liedes with 73. Second low gross winners were Jesse Wade and Doug Jung with 77. Third place were Paula Crowley and Bill Engberg with 79.

The low net winners were Dan Cabrera and Bob Drewes with 68. Second net winners were Noel Widmayer and Dana Bassel with 70. Third place went to Mike Kebschull and Charlie Kahakauwila with 70.

A Birdie Told Me

It seems Bill Hatch recently reached his goal this season and shot his all-time best nine-hole score at Kenai Golf Course.

This season was exciting for many golfers who shot their best rounds. Congratulations to those who did shoot their best rounds ever at Kenai Golf Course.

2003 Hole In One Club

Congratulations to the new 2003 hole in one club members. Gene Diamond, Jerry May, Trey Miller, Eric Meyer and Eddie Sibolboro all joined the Hole In One Club and have their names on the clubhouse trophy. They all carded a hole in one this season.
