Bailey Creek Women
A near freezing north wind didn’t keep six of the Bailey Creek Ladies off the Course last Wednesday, Oct. 9. Dressed in layers, they played a game of “Front Nine or Back Nine.” Coming in 1st was Ceci Dale-Cesmat, shooting a personal best on the back nine with a net of score of 29. Placing second, was Kim Holliday, following closely with a net 32 on the front nine. Barbara Pescio chipped in for a birdie # 16.
With only a few play days left, we are saying goodbye to many of our “snow birds.” “Happy Trails” to them until we meet again.
The ladies club will continue to play until the course closes in October. Guests are welcome to join them.

Second place was the team of Anderson & Chegwin with a total of 60. Third place was the team of Miller & Bellows having 61 as their score.
On Friday there were a total of 5 skins, going to Norm Miller (hole 4), Andy Knudsen (hole 1), Don Zumwalt (hole 2), Dan Anderson (hole 15) and Steve Harding took skins on holes 5 & 17. Skins for Wednesday were taken by Reihsen (hole 1), Anderson (hole 6), Miller (hole 8), Chegwin (hole 11) and Grasso on hole 15.
The forecast for the near future looks to be in the 60s so the season isn’t done just yet!

Awards were presented in several season-long events, including Most Birdies over the season,andthe Eclectic (in which, the player plays ten rounds and her best score on each hole counts as her game score, minus her handicap). And the Most Improved Golfer award was alsopresented.

Karen Linde was the Most Improved golfer, with a reduction of her handicap from 17.1 to 13.7.
Earlier this month, the GMWGC hosted the 34th annual Turd Tournament on Oct. 3. The Turd Tournament is so named because at this time of year the fairways are aerated which, in days of old, left mud plugs (turds) all over the golf course (the grounds crew nowleaves enough for “atmosphere” and nostalgia).
The weatherwas sunny,and the players got into the Halloween themewith their attire. There was a “trick” or a “treat” on many holes, to make things more interesting, and of course pumpkin bowls of candy onseveral tee boxes.
Play was followed by a festive luncheon at The Restaurant at Graeagle Meadows. The 2019 Turd Queen isHollyAnderson,whotied for lownetwith a 65 and won in a “card off.”The team game was the best two net balls of the foursome, with each foursome consisting of an A, B, C and D handicap player.
First Place, went to the team ofCynthia Baldwin, Bev Reynolds, Dee Walker (and a blind draw), with a team net scoreof 113; Second Place Team,Sharla Scott, Karen Fraser, Jan Bray (and a blind draw); and, Third Place Team, Janis McCreary, Suzie Wiese, Mickie Burdick (anda blind draw).Priscilla Piper captured closest to the pin honors on hole #3,at 4’7″, and Cynthia Baldwin took second place with 6’7″.Cathy Churchill and Debbie Fuetsch each made one “chip-in.”
The weather is changing and so will the time for starting. Wednesday morning scrambles now begin at 10 a.m. Sign in starts at 9:30 a.m.
Fall definitely arrived as golfers stepped on to the course Oct. 9, the winds were chilly but spirits were still bright as scrambles continued. Coming in at 8 under was the team of Mary Trafton, Don McConnell, Leo Sorosinski and Darel Joseph. From the conversations at the clubhouse after the round, it couldn’t have been done without Mary’s consistent playing. Well done!! Coming in close behind at 7 under par was the team of Ron Carter, Bill Arave and Margie Joseph.
Close behind but out of the payoff, we’re two more teams. Closest to the pin was won by Dick Grace, and chip in’s were made by Mary Trafton, Don McConnell as Jeff Stevens.
All golfers are already talking about next week, when once again scrambles will start at 10 a.m. Everyone is welcome to participate.
Mount Huff golfers had a chilly start for the day Oct. 2, but it ended up beautiful and lots of happy golfers. Two teams came in with a tie, but a competitive chip off resulted in the win for the team of Mike Ingle, Ron Christensen and Jeff Stevens. The team of Dick Grace, Bill McRoberts and Margie came in second.
A close following of two teams rounded out the day.
