Indian Creek men's golf club
Our annual President's Trophy Tournament was a most interesting affair for those who played today. For the first time I can remember, only one player landed the green on Hole #6, a closest to the pin hole. With the greens as firm and fast as I've ever seen them, Rich Elwell should feel fortunate his ball stayed on the green at all. Putting was also a challenge today with a fair amount of high putting scores. However, we did have several standouts.
The player with the best score today was Bill Danaher. He shot a net 55 and had the greens down as he only needed 25 putts. He easily claimed the 1st place trophy in the 2nd flight with his great round!
Carey Winborne overcame a terrible range session yesterday in which he texted me saying "I'm going to shoot in the triple digits tomorrow! I hate this game!" Well, he didn't shoot in the triple digits. In fact, he shot a net 58 and cruised to a first place trophy in the 3rd flight.
Ed Kopfle has shot under his handicap all four tournament this year (cough *sand bagger* cough) and today his net 62 was the winner in the 1st flight. Congratulations to Ed, Bill, and Carey! They will get their 1st place trophies at our end of the year awards banquet in November.
As for our 2nd place trophy winners, Warren Rickard needed a tie breaker on the back 9 to beat Matt Quinn and make him cry as both players shot 1 under. Warren's birdie on #11 was difference. Tom Wise was good enough to earn 2nd place in the 2nd flight. Ken Nash shot a net 64 which earned him another trophy for his garage. Congratulations Warren, Tom, and Ken!
We had a men's club meeting following our round today. We had a few members jump on to some committees which is appreciated. We also talked about a road tournament and based on the positive feedback from last year, it sounds like many players want to go back to Yo Che De He Golf Club at the Cache Creek Casino so I will book that soon and keep you posted on the details. Roy Harrison also set up the annual Carson City trip and details are up on the board in the club house. These two events are open to anyone, not just men's club members so if you know someone who's interested, let them know about these great trips.
I will be sending out a survey this week about the Zone Qualifiers. Please respond to the survey. Your feedback will be very helpful!
Our next tournament will take place on March 3. It will be the Blind Partners tournament. It's play your own ball and after the round is concluded, you'll be randomly paired up with a partner and get a combined score with handicaps. Tee times will start at 7:30. I hope to see you all then. Enjoy your weekend and see you next time!
