Feb. 23rd Senior Mixed golf at Cottonwood Golf Course.

Golf on Friday feb. 23 started out with a slight breeze and the temperature at about 65 degrees and ended up at 78 degrees and the wind picking up during the round to about 30 mph, and that will test even the best golfers skills.

The wind did test the skills of the 16 golfers who turned up to play and the scores showed a higher than normal amount of strokes to get around the course.

thanks to Tracy for the two guests he brought to this weeks outing.

Paul Martin and Carl Aitken, from Southwestern Ontario,  got their first test of golfing on the narrow fairways and the Texas wind.

Carl adjusted to the wind and narrow fairways and turned in a round of 38, his first time out golfing in a few years. Paul had a bit more difficulty with the width of the fairways, as they were not quite wide enough  or long enough to contain his ball. His first round in five years was a 48.

For the team scores ( the lowest score on each hole), the Green team of Tony Gaudagnolo (35) , Dwayne Miller (39), Doug Mazur (36), and Howard Stewart (39), led the field with a team score of 31.

The Blue team of Dan Luensmann (36), Bev Gaudagnolo (37), Tracy Andrews (42) , Harry LaCore (41) had  a team score of 32 good for second place. ( Tracy only plays golf in texas , about 4 times a winter, he turned in his first par, on hole #8 which is a 200 yard par three and one of the hardest holes on the course).

Gerry Busch (35), Richard Lampi (37), Paul Martin (48), and Carl Aitken with his (38) brought the Red team into 3rd place with a team score of 33.

The White team of Becky Luensmann (43),  Bill Stewart (45), Dianna Stewart (43), and Jo LaCore (38), turned in a team score of 36.

Gerry Busch and Tony Gaudagnolo each shot 35s for the lowest rounds of the day.
