We revised our play schedule for the balance of 2017 to adjust for the loss of Cypresswood, and Raveneaux. Our revised schedule is attached to this article and can be viewed online here.6-2017-Amoco-Golf-Playing-Schedule-2017-09-21
We’re playing Windrose next week….this is a great time of year. Don’t miss out.
Lake Windcrest is open. We will be playing. I’ve talked with the course and it looks like all is well.
The rough was too high. The greens had been “punched”! The weather was hot & humid. BUT those iced mango towels were fantastic!
Willow Creek had nineteen golfers and ten of them cashed in their rain checks from a previous outing. The rain checks were worth $33 so they were not inconsequential! We had five teams with only one threesome. The scores were “tight” ranging from 82 to 86 (par was 102).
The big winners were Messers. Blackburn, Dahl, Holzberg, and Odunsi. Mr. Odunsi was an “add on” and proved to be the winning margin. In second place, also with an 82, was Messers. Townsend, Godschalk, Newton, and Russell. In the third and final “money” place was Messers. Walsh, Holy, Hunter, and Van Ditner (84).
Left out of the mix was Mr. Cooper’s (86) and Mr. York’s (85) teams.
Mr. Blackburn’s team was able to make a five on the par 4, no. 15 that put them in a tie with Mr. Townsend’s team. Mr. Blackburn’s team then won the “card off”.
Mr. Townsend’s team had gone ahead on the par 3, no. 14, when they recorded a net of “3” for three scores. Yes that’s a total of three scores!
Closest to the pin was Mr. Walsh on no. 3 (18-feet) and Mr. Newton on no. 17 (12-feet).
The meal today was BBQ chicken and it was definitely first class. Too bad we don’t eat this well every week
Thanks, to Mr. Kelly Russell who will be doing the pairings next week at the Cypresswood Cypress Course.
Thanks to the 19 players that participated today. We played the front tees, so we finished up earlier than usual. It was very close with the five team scores ranging from 82 to 86 – Very close.
The winning team was Irvin Blackburn, Bob Dahl, Alan Holzberg, and the last minute addition Doks Odunsi. Second team was John Townsend, Doug Godschalk, Dan Newton and Kelly Russell. The team of David Walsh, Mike Holy, Harry Hunter and Tim Van Dinter came in third.
As always at Willow Creek, the food was great. It was especially good for those of us who used our rain check from earlier this year – only $12 instead of $45!!!
Next week is the Cypress Course at Cypresswood. Kelly Russel will be doing the pairings. Hope we have a good turnout.

We're playing a great location next Tuesday. Willow Creek is on our schedule.
If you have a rain check from our rainout bring it. They will accept it!
Our turnout has started to struggle a bit with the summer heat, but I know you all aren't girly men. You're tough guys. Let's have a good turnout.
We actually need a good turnout to maintain our playing rights at many clubs.
I’ll apologize for the scrambled pairings. Jide posted them as instructed. My cute little system didn’t work. Jide will get you straightened up at the course. See ya out there!
