First League Play
Even with the uneven weather patterns, we were able to get our first league action of the year in last week. The CFL (Casual Fun League) had a dozen people turn out for its debut. It meets on Mondays at 6 and is set up to be a low key, no pressure, casual and fun league for golfers of all abilities…young and old. Teams are put together to be somewhat even and a scramble format is used in some way or combination with other formats. The cost is $1 per player and the money goes toward a steak cookout at the end of the season. A quarter is also collected and goes to the hole prize winner that day. The first winners in a 4-person scramble were the Roberts family and Tom Siegrist with a 1 under 34. The Roberts family included Hudson, Rainy and Brent. Jerry Gibbons won the money for longest putt made on #9.
The Cat and Dog league will preview this Tuesday at 6. It is a male/female 2-person scramble. Cost is also $1 per player and the money goes to the winning team or teams depending on numbers and flights. A quarter is also collected for that day’s hole prize.
Members and nonmembers are invited to play in all of our leagues. Men’s League should be starting soon on Thursdays. Cost for nonmembers is only $5 for green fees instead of the normal $10. Cart rentals would be additional if you don’t bring your cart or ride with someone else.
May 4 Tournament
May 4 was originally scheduled as a Pavilion Benefit Tournament, but that has been changed. Jeff Conger and friends want to put on a golf tournament that day that will benefit the “backpack program” and Cristo’s House. The backpack program puts food in needy students backpacks on Friday for the weekend. Cristo’s House is a shelter for battered and abused women. All of the proceeds will go those very worthwhile programs. To sign up and get more information call Jeff at 417-547-3773. Do not call the pro shop to sign up.
