A little bit of a cooling trend brought our golfers out for the Mt. Huff Wednesday Morning Scramble.
The first place team members were: Nolan Bussey, Ralph Cote, and Bob McElman.
In second place were team members John Hackett, Phil Rodger and Bill Arave.
The chip-in competition was a tie between Nolan Bussey and Phil Rodgers.
Closest to the pin was won by Bob McElman.
The July 29th Thursday Night Scramble was a great success. We had six teams, missing three of our regulars as Dick Grace, Mike Ingle, Darel Joseph and fellow club member Ron Christensen were participating in the Northern Sierra Zone Golf Tournament at Poppy Hills and Quail Lodge golf courses in Monterey.
We had a tie at 5 under between the teams of Milo Beauchman, Bob McIlroy, Gary Metzdorf and Jeff Stevens, and Casey Kingdon, David Smuts, Gary McClellan, and Lynn McClellan. Milo and Gary chipped for the prize and Milo squeaked in for the victory. Casey Kingdon slammed the ball for the longest drive and David Smuts took closest to the hole.
Ladies are getting together 9 a.m. for their fun in the sun, all levels are welcome, we just promise you a good time.
Ken George made a hole in one on number 8 this week. It is a rare achievement with maybe 6 a year. Congratulations to Ken.

Graeagle Meadows Women's Golf Club
On Thursday, July 22, the Graeagle Meadows Women's Golf Club played a game called "Scratch Three." After completion of the round each player scratched her three worst holes. She totaled the scores of the other fifteen holes and deducted one half of her handicap for the game score.

Dink Rife came in second with Carol Jenny coming in third. Lois Childress had the best low gross for eighteen holes in the second flight. The best low net for fifteen holes less one half of her handicap in the second flight was Dee Walker. Donna Swanson came in second with Jay Fisher taking third. In spite of the warm "hot" weather a good time was had by all.
Whitehawk Ranch Ladies Golf Club
It was a "Funny Ball" day out on the course for the Whitehawk ladies last week. Each player in each group got a chance to use the 'funny ball' on several balls. The 'funny ball' rotated through the ladies on every hole and if you were lucky enough to do well on a hole when you had the 'funny ball' in your possession, you got to take one stroke off your net ball score. The game was to use one best net ball of the three players on each hole.
For one team, that 'funny ball' helped them slice their overall team best ball net score to a winning 48! The winning team consisted of Ginny Kylberg, Jenine Fraser & Lynn Smith. The second place team players were Christy Randall, Chris Hyatt & Arline Simpson who scored a close 50.
Some explanations need to be made to the status of the Whitehawk ladies' match play competition. There were four winning players in round one: Cynthia Faulk, Patty McNamara, Lynn Smith and Denise Stein. Cynthia Faulk had to pull out of the competition. So, Denise Stein and Lynn Smith played their second round match and Lynn Smith won that round. Since Patty McNamara's next match was cancelled due to Cynthia Faulk pulling out, she moved on to play Lynn Smith in a match... again, Lynn Smith was the victor!
Meanwhile, Marcia Zeigler had a match with Cynthia Faulk that was also cancelled, so she awaits the victor of a match between Denise Stein and Christy Randall. Whitehawks' match play competition is a double elimination format, so each player may lose one match and still move on to the final match play round. So far, Lynn Smith is the only player who has played three matches and won all three of them... congratulations Lynn!
