What’s happening in the Graeagle golf world?

Wednesday Play Day July 20 had 23 participants and they played a four-person team event called “In The Box.” For the first 16 holes, each player was assigned every fourth hole, and that player’s score on that hole was the team score, plus the best net score of the other three players on that hole. On the final two holes, the team score was the combined best two net balls of the foursome. The team of Dan Anderson, Steve Peterson, Leo Reihsen and Jay Hendrick took first place. There was a tie for second between the team of Burt Bellows, Ron Deicke, Andy Knudsen, Ralph Wittick, and the team of Norm Nichols, Jim Oster, Bryan Hansen and Norm Miller. Five “skins” were awarded: One each to Jim Reynolds, Norm Nichols, Chuck Franck, Bryan Hansen and Dan Anderson. Note: Dan Anderson shot a gross 77, two strokes over his age, for a net 61 — old guys rule!
The Play Day game Friday, July 22 was “Nine and Nine,” with 26 players competing in two-man teams. The format was that each player’s score must be used for any nine holes and the other team member’s score will be used on the other nine holes. First Place was won by the team of Jim Reynolds and Larry Gregg, with a net score of 56. In Second Place, the team of Steve Peterson and Ron Eaton, with a net score of 57. Third Place was taken by the team of Mike Gibson and Nate Coates, with a net score of 59. Fourth Place was a tie between the team of Gene Carr and Jack Gilbert, and the team of John Mitchell and Jim Oster, both with net scores of 61. Five “skins” were awarded: One each for Jim Reynolds, Jim Oster, Ron Eaton, Steve Peterson and Andy Knudsen,

Twenty members of the GMWGC braved the heat July 21 to compete in the July Ace of Aces Qualifier, as well as a game of “O-N-E-S”, in which only the player’s gross score on holes beginning with the letters O-N-E-S count toward her game score, minus one-half of her handicap. Congratulations were given to July’s Ace of Aces Qualifiers: Low Gross, Debbie Fuetsch, with a gross score of 84; and, Low Net, Dee Walker, with a net score of 71.
