Senior mixed golf at Cottonwood

Feb 10th laCopa league golf

The biggest turnout of the winter season for the laCopa league mixed golf,
turned out  20 golfers.

the format for the day was “roll the Dice”, with five groups of four taking to the links.
With this format , it was not often that the best drive was used. 
It was reported that one team, had to take a penalty shot on # 5,
when they rolled the number of an unknown player who hit the ball into the water off the tee.

the Red team of Becky, Dianna, Jeff Dykstra ( his first week out) and Keith turned in one of three birdies recorded on  the day on # 8. their final score was a 29 , good for a tie for Second.

White team made up of Dee, Jo, Doug and Duane won the bragging rights for the week with a 27,
they score a birdie on # 3, a 115 yarder.

The Blues had one of those days, with tough luck with the dice and shot a 32, Bill, Howard, Bev and Bob made up this team.

The green team ( Gerry, Fred, Harry and Tony) started of with a bang,
getting a birdie on the first hole, playing the first four holes at even par, them they got to the fifth hole and their fortune changed. They took a  5, then repeating that on # 6 for the only 5’s turned in on the day.
They finished with 3 pars and a total score of 31.

The pinks turned in a 29 to tie for second, thanks to the Dorothy’s hot putter,
( she drained two putts from outside of 20 feet). they rolled a six four times , that is for the worst shot.
Dan, Don and Richard made up the rest of the team.

missing this week were Jim and Teresa Williams, Joyce Foy,

Sunday and Monday Golf

February 8th golf

The foursome of Gary Cook, Don Riesberg, Richard Lampi and George Coulson braved the sun and warm temperatures at Cottonwood.

They hoped that the nice weather would show up on the score cards with nice scores.

Gary led the way with 8 Bogeys and a par to score a 35. Not much to write about on Gary’s game , it was up the middle, chip, put, put, and on to the next hole.

Don played the first four holes great but on the 5th hole he had a guest sitting on his shoulder
telling him to hit ball hard to get acrossthe water.
He hit it as hard as he could and was rewarded with a 50 yard drive, just short of the canal, hit his second onto the green,took 3 to get it in the hole, for a 5.
On hole # six, another comment from his guest got him a 30 yarder, resulting in another 5.
From there Don was not listening to his guest any more and finished his round with a 36.

Richard was playing bogey golf until he scored a 5 o # 5. Then on #8 he tried a lob wedge from about 30 yards out,and like Tiger Woods only hit it 10 yards and finished with a 6.

#9 proved no better, his drive went over the green then chip, chip, chip, put, put for a 6 and all the strokes added up to a season high of 41.

George was doing fine until # 5 where his putter failed him and he had a 6, hole # 7 and # 9 he scored 5’s and his total for the day was a 40.

Monday Feb. 9th:

Sid joined Don, George and Richard on a nice warm day that started out with a few clouds then turned into a sunny day.
Everyone played well, and were tied on the score sheet with 31’s after eight holes.

Sid parred the last hole and ended up with a 34 for the round. Don had a bogey on the last hole, his score was a 35.
George and Richard both shot 5’s and ended up with 36 for the round.

Morning Golf

Morning golf at cottonwood on Jan. 26th and 27th.

The last two days we have had real nice weather, with very little wind for our morning golf at Cottonwood.

We generally go out around 10 am. There are other groups of golfers who belong to other leagues
from some of the R.V parks in the area. They have tee times earlier and are finished by ten in the morning.

Our golf has been steady for the last few days. Don has been the most consistent the last two days with scores of 33 and 34.

Sid had a 34 today despite being wild off of the tee, he was good with chipping and putting.
George shot a 35 yesterday but had bad luck on the greens today, lipping out on 4 holes and ending up with a 40.

The water canal claimed a ball from George and a ball from Sid on hole # 5.

The only highlite for Richard was a birdie on # 2 as he shot a 38 yesterday and a 35 today.

Other golfers from the La Copa play golf later in the day.

Cathy Sanders started her golfing career today under the capable hands of Judy and Keith Bess

Welcome to the world of golf and all of its ups and downs, Cathy.

Who showes up to golf

who showes up to golf

It seems, in golf that each golfer has two persona’s, one that is a good golfer and the other is

the evil twin.

On any given day, we do not know which person will show up when we go golfing. Todays golf at Cottonwood

George Coulson, Sid Bina, Don Reisberg and Richard Lampi, teed off # 1.

George and Sid hit to the left side if the green, Richard to the right. Don hit the green and was left with a 15 footer
which he drained for a Birdie, a great way to start the game.

On # 2 Don’s Evil twin showed up and for the next two holes, he hung around resulting in a 5 and a 6. Then he was gone and Don played

good golf for the rest of the round, adding another Birdie on #7, for a 31

George matched Don’s Birdie with one of his own on #7, with Sid and Richard with pars on that hole.

Sid shot steady golf all day and finished with a 33. Richard stayed out of the water for a change and shot a 32.

George’s evil twin kept on comming back to visit him which resulted in a score of 37.

Judy Bess was out in front of us and Arthur Barnett played with her from hole # 2.

As we were finishing our round Howard and Dianne Stewart were starting thier round, hope they had a good round.
