Birch Ridge Golf Course is still open and on the rainy and cold days of fall, we only have a few players, but when the sun is shining and the temperatures approach 50 degrees the golfers are still coming out to enjoy these last beautiful days of fall.
We are still playing on the greens (the front third) and are plugging and closing down the back portion of those greens. The Pro-shop is still open from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and you can still play golf to 7:30 p.m. sunset.
On a rather cold Monday morning, seven Seniors came out to face the elements and compete for low net. Chiya Bazan and Don McGhee tied for a low net of 32, Don McGhee had the long putt and Roger Jones had the closest-to on both holes No. 6 and No. 8.
Next Monday, which is Columbus Day, the Seniors will tee off at 11 a.m.
Tuesday night, eight players (four couples) showed up to compete in a nine-hole scramble, and after nine holes in the rain, the Keatings, Dave and Sharon, won first place, the Weimer’s, Charlie and Lore, took second place. Others who braved the elements were John and Jane Tongen (the Co-chairs) and Tom and Judy Walsh.
Due to the weather conditions, it appears that a longer than normal warm-up time was required in the club house. I understand that a good time was had by all.
Next Tuesday, tee-off time will be at 5 p.m. To sign up, call John and Jane Tongen at 260-5265 or the Pro-Shop at 262-5270.
