Mother Nature finally shut us down! On Tuesday, the ground froze and stayed frozen all day, so Birch Ridge Golf Course is “officially” closed for the season. We would like to thank all of you who helped us survive this record-setting wet year.
Weather didn’t bother the seniors, however, and after 23 weeks of senior golf, 300 seniors have played nine holes of golf every Monday with the exception of a few rainout days. This Monday, however, was a beautiful sunny day and after we waited for the frost to go out of the greens, which was right at noon, six seniors went out to compete and everyone that played won something. Roger Jones, George McDowell and Don McGhee all tied for first with a low net of 33. Eddie Sibolboro was closest to the pin on both par 3s and Ray Hamby won the longest putt.
Thursday night is the annual meeting of the Birch Ridge Golf Association. The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. at Froso’s Restaurant. Hors d’oeuvres will be served, election of board members will take place and there will be lots of door prizes including a season pass for 2007.
