Lake Windcrest - December 2013
80 degrees in December...beautiful Fall day. Shorts. Lake Windcrest played very nice today. The greens were so fast that, like Sam Snead once said, we had to hold the putter over the ball and hit it with the shadow. We had a great turnout with 29 players. Scores ranged from 115 to 130. The winning team was Rodney Keeling, David Jones (welcome back), and Dub Farmer. The next team with 119 was Derryl York, Hank Nelly, Tom Patterson Jr., and Tom Senior. There were three 123's. Closest to the pin were Joe Ellis and....wait for it....Tom Bowen, with a DRIVER...I assume he at least choked down on the thing. What was it? 100 yards?
A great way to support the USO this month is by making a donation to the USO which will be matched by a Secret Santa. Hurry you only have until 23 Dec to act. See attached for details.

High Meadow Ranch - Nov 2013
Eight teams at HMR. The winning team with a 117 was Derryl York, Mike Holy, Jim"the putter" Quance and Woody Madden. Alan Holzberg barely missed a hole in one for CTP on #5.
Harry is still working with our Course Coordinators to fill out the playing schedule for next year.
We're playing at Cypress Lakes next Tuesday. If this weather holds we should have a great outing...enjoy. If you feel you need more motivation to go out and play, look at last week's post on the web site. The week after next is December and we have another pairings coordinator. Tim Van Dinter and Derryl York are working together to cover December.
Ravenueax November 2013
Ravenueax got a great turnout with 8 teams playing. Scores ranged from 11 under (95) to 6 over (112). The winners were Larry Allen, Jim McKernan, Steve Carr and Randy Hiriart. We always welcome newcomers even if they win...so long as they don't do it too often. Closest to the pin were Jim Patterson and Bob Rall.
Bill Durfey is doing pairing this month...thanks Bill. This next week we play the Cypresswoood Traditions course. Its another real nice course, and the weather should be ideal. Now is the time to enjoy golf is Houston.
