Amoco Golfers,
We had 20 golfers sign up for the Oakhurst course on Tuesday, Aug 15 – very nice, considering it is August.

Since the weatherman has called for Tuesday to be the “coolest” day of the week, it will still be a HOT Houston Summer day. SO, on the front side, during the “cool” of the day, we will play a shamble -best ball on drives (best 2 balls on par 5’s), then play your ball to the hole. Then scramble on the remaining holes once we are warmed up.

Parings for Tuesday Aug 1 – Cypresswood – Cypress

Amoco Golfers, We only had 18 golfers sign up for the Cypresswood Cypress course on Tuesday, Aug 1. It looks like a glorious day for golf with lower humidity and temps at 85 degrees at 10am… so we will not have to worry about the excessive heat this week. With that in mind, let’s play our own ball to start the round, then shamble as we get tired. This week’s rules” ** Play your own ball on “Front Nine” counting 2 low net scores ** Play a Shamble on the “Back Nine”, Best ball on first shot all holes except par 5’s – best ball on first 2 shots – Count 2 low net scores ** Each team must count at least 2 drives from each player on the “Back Nine” Shamble ** Play will be from the “Silver Tees” making the course ~5600 yards total, which should make playing enjoyable – Par 144 ** Cost is $35.00 plus $ 3.00 for prizes – Pay at the end of the game before lunch ** Closet to pin will be holes # 5 and #14.

Willow Creek Was Hot and Not Too Long

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.

Successful day at Wilow Creek

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.

Willow Creek Coming Up

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.
