Pole Creek Ladies
On Thursday, June 4, the Pole Creek ladies golf league enjoyed a spectacular day of sunshine and warm breezes playing a “Hate Em” tournament. Before they started playing they selected the 3 holes they hated the most and recorded par on their score card for those holes. After they completed their round, they subtracted their full handicap and turned in their net scores. The Low Net winners were: 1st Place (tie) Andrea Singleton and Gloria Pielke, 61; 2nd Place Darlene Klancke ,63; 3rd Place Betty Williams, 64. Mary Brooks had the fewest putts with 29 and won the generous chip in pot.
Grand Lake Men
The Grand Lake Mens Golf league held its season opening “Cabin Fever” tournament and dinner meeting on Wednesday, June 3, at the Grand Lake Golf course. The Low Gross winners were Skip Peck (75) and Larry Burk (76). The Low Net was a tie between Jim Negri and Tom Jenkins (68). The golf course is in wonderful condition and the new food and beverage service was a big hit with the mens club membership. Looking forward to a GREAT season.
