Those who drew the red tee’s, Arthur Barnett, Gary Cook and Bob Martintoni led the way into the wind.
They struggled to a four on the first hole, then shot par golf after that.
Since there were three players in this group, they had to use 3 drives each for the nine holes.
They finished the round with a 28, good for second place.

The rest of the teams had 4 players and had to use each players shot on two holes, leaving one hole open.

Don Reisberg, Frank Simpson, Joyce Foy and Jerry Pape made up the white team. They parred the first four holes
then the evil twin must have showed up on hole # 5 as they shot a the only 5 of the day on that hole.
Another par then 4 bogey’s gave them a total of 32 for the round.

The Blue team has Gerry Busch to thank for the 29 that they recorded.
Gerry dropped puts from all over including one from about 18 feet for a birdie on #7.
Keith’s Bess’s chipping was solid and he got the ball close to the hole and let Gerry do the rest.
Richard Lampi and Tracy Andrews rounded out the team and added a shot here and there to help.

The yellow Team was the top group of the day, made up of, Harry DeCore, Fred Kline, Tim Andrews and Dorothy Kline.
From the look of the scorecard they did not run into any trouble, they had one bogey,
six pars and two Birdies for a great round of 26.

Ron Simpson, Sid Bina, Dianna Stewart and Dee Martintoni Drew the green tees, They shot a combined score of 29 .
On the day they had three bogey’s five pars and they birdied the longest and hardest hole on the course.

Wednesday golf at treasure hills

the golfers best friend
golfers best friend

Sixteen Golfers from the LaCopa Inn group took part in our Wednesday seniors golf tour.
Each golfer picked a colored tee from a basket to make up the teams. Just the luck of the draw to see who you’re playing partner was.

the first team out of the blocks were George Coulson, Ron Simpson, Harry DeCore and Jerry Pape.
Now you may think that golf is a simple game of hitting the ball
into a small hole in the middle of a large sloping green with very short grass on it.

Team #1 thought that when they were on # 1 tee, and looked up the fairway, it took them a total of 30 strokes
to get all of the balls in that little hole.

Hole 1 is a straight away par 4, 356 yards long, from the gold tees.

Team 2, Keith Bess, Frank Simpson, Nancy Rhulow and Gerry Busch had great confidence in their game and proceeded to tie Team 1
with a combined score of 30.

Team # 3 made up of Gary Cook, Richard Lampi, Arthur Barnett and Doug Mazor, played # 1 with a total score of 23.

Team # 4 of Joyce Foy, Don Riesberg, Bill Stewart and Sid Bina, took 24 strokes to finnish the hole.

There were no Birdies on the day. Ron Simpson had the best round of the day with a 45 on his card. Sid Bina and Arthur barnett were tight on Ron’s heals with 46’s.

Honors of the day goes to team 3 with a combined average score of 48.7. Second with an average of 50.2 were team 4.
Team # 1 averaged 53.2 and team 2 had an average of 54.2.

The High scores on the first hole can be blamed on nerves, playing in front of a lot of people.

The last hole of the day, a short tough par 4, had results were much the same, on this hole everyone was tired and can use that as an excuse.
Team scores on Hole 9 a 31 from team # 1,.. a 29 for team # 2, … a 26 from team 3 and a 23 for team # 4.

Some notable scores were recorded, Jerry Pape turned in a 61 for the day.
Harry Decore took the high hole honor, with a 10 recorded on his card on # 9.

The fast greens took a toll on most of the golfers, with many puts going past the hole.
