In addition, there will be games of skill such as accuracy, longest drive (by handicap) and closest to the pin plus, just for fun, some games of luck on a number of holes.

Wednesday morning scramble
The weather is warming up, but mornings are still great for golf! The July 14 Wednesday morning scramble at Mt. Huff Golf Course gave us the first place winning team of John Hackett, Randy Jennings and Bob McElman.
In second place were Phil Rodgers, Ralph Cote, Dick Grace and Al Brubaker.
Chip-in was won by Bob McElman and there was no winner for the Closest to the Pin Competition.
After a very blustery July 1 scramble where Margie "the Bomb" Joseph won longest drive, and Lynn McClellan won the longest drive on July 8, Milo Beauchman reclaimed the longest drive for the men during our very hot July 15 scramble. Closest to the pin on July 1 was Jerry Quam and, to not be outdone, Barbara Quam won it on the 8, and Darel Joseph won on the 15.
During our July 15 scramble (did I mention the heat?) there were seven teams and the teams of Dick Grace, Mike Ingle, Loren Lindner and Ralph Cote tied with Richard Mauldin, Paul Eagan, Wes Morgan and Joe Pogue, and after a final finish chip off between Wes Morgan and Dick Grace, Dick Grace's team came in first.
Everyone seems to have a wonderful time no matter the weather and we would love to have you join us on Thursdays, Check in is 4:30 p.m., tee off at 5 p.m.
Also on July 24 we will be having a full handicap two man scramble at 9 a.m. with check in at 8:30 p.m. Cost is $35. We would love to have you.
The course is in great shape, and if you haven't ever played here, give us a try, and if it's been a while, we would love for you to come back.
