Bailey Creek Women’s Golf
“Hot! Hot! Hot!” was the name for Wednesday’s golf game. We seven brave souls survived, a bit melted, but alive, we all so love the game of golf.
The game of the day was a new one to most of us, “Tee to the Green,” meaning no putts were counted for the game, but were counted for posting.
We did flight it, so first place, in the First flight was Ginger Birchfield, with birdies on Holes 8 and 13.
First place in the second flight was Mo Clark, who also — broke 100 for the first time, during Ladies Play Day. Congratulations, Mo; second place in the second flight went to Wynnetta Regli with a chip-in, birdie on Hole 13.
We are hoping for cooler weather next week, see you then.
Mt. Huff Golf
Even though the heat is on, the golf at Mt. Huff is still pleasant in the morning for our Wednesday Morning Scramble.
On Wednesday, Aug. 2, the gang turned out for a brisk round of competitive play.
Our first place win at 8-under-par went to Jeff Stevens, Loren Lindner and Dick Grace.
The second place team, scoring at 4-under-par, was the team of Darel Joseph, Duane Austin and Jim Battigan.
Once again, as last week, Jim Battigan hit it closest to the pin and scored the chip-in along with Bill McRoberts. Nice play, fellows.
See you next week.
