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.


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!

Lake Windcrest on Tuesday 18July

We will be playing next at Lake Windcrest on Tuesday 18July. Right now only 9 people have signed up. I understand this is far below the minimum number used to negotiate the price for the group. I hope more people will still sign up to make up to 20 at least. To speed up the play and mitigate the hot weather, we will be using the following format: · Front 9 – Scramble play and record only one score for the team. · Back 9 – Modified shamble i.e use best drive on all holes and also best second shots on par 5s. We will count best two (2) low net scores. Please sign up to play. Registration will be cut off at 4:00pm tomorrow. Do let us know if there are any questions.

Fwd: Lake Windcrest is NEXT

Time To Sign Up! >>> Meat Balls and Spaghetti is not the only attraction at Lake Windcrest. The golf course also offers 18 holes of great golf with beautiful well-kept Tif-Eagle green, each preceded by a generous fairway that winds through dense vegetation. Each hole offers a different challenge, providing a superb experience for all levels of golfers.  Jide Ayo-Vaughan 

High Meadow Ranch Scorcher – not so bad

HMR provided a great outing today, again as they usually do. We had a good turnout for a warm summer day, and Tim (our Pairings guru) made sure we were entertained by some really complex rules. Great creativity Tim! Our winning team was the David Maggard, Mike Holy, Jide Ayo-Vaughan, and Jim Quance. We are playing Lake Windcrest next week. Come on out. Jide will be our pairings coordinator for next week. Its his first time to try this task and I thank him for stepping forward. You can help him out by making sure to sign up reasonably early and not make him rush the last few hours of next Monday to put the pairings together. Thanks.

a wide brimmed hat was left at the Cypresswood’s grill yesterday. It had a sleeve of balls in it. Sound familiar?  If you think it’s yours contact Dan Newton at dnewton@pdq.net.  If he doesn’t hear from you, expect him to be sporting a new lid next time you see him. 

Again, no golf next Tuesday.
