Senior men go back to the links

March Meadows Senior Men

In spite of the cool wet start to the season, the March Meadows Senior Men have seen a growing attendance over that last two outings.

The weather, it should be noted, has not dampened the enthusiasm of the golfers.  Nor has it effected their abilities, as evidenced by the number of balls awarded.

Over the last two weeks, Closest to the Pins were made by Bruce Macdonald, Frank Fraser, Rocky Wise and Tony Tostevine.  Chip in pars were scored by Jug Kalar, Ron McGovern, Jim Peterson and  Bob Leach.  Rocky Wise, Mike Morgan, John McCormick, Frank Fraser, Don Cambridge and Tony Tostevine all sunk birdies. Bruce  Macdonald chipped in his birdie.

Sandy pars were made by Jim Peterson, John Barger and Clark Ferguson. Earl LaForge and Clark Ferguson got the low gross scores while John White and Jug Kalar tallied the low nets.

As a reminder, the Senior Men play each Tuesday.

Tee off time for the next month is 9 a.m.

The sign up sheet is outside the Pro-Shop and we ask that you sign up if you think that you will be playing.  When making up the groups it is easier to drop someone who can’t make it than it is to add a player at the last moment.

They call it golf because all of the other four-letter words were taken.~Raymond Floyd
