Golf in Texas Dec 30th 2016

The La Copa Group Winter golf has started today.

 With  those  who play in the  La Copa group golf league arriving in larger numbers, the players got together at the Cottonwood golf course and played their first round of golf on Dec 30th.

The weather was mostly sunny with a few clouds and the temperature about 65 degrees and a light breeze blowing.

Kieth Bess , Joyce Foy and Richard Lampi from the La Copa were joined by Jim and Teresa Williams to play golf.

Keith had the lowest score of the day when he shot a 32,  Jim had the only birdie of the day. He got that on the number seven which plays 95 yards.

Joyce and Richard both had 35s and Jim shot a 38.

The fairways and the greens are in good shape, the canal that runs through the middle of the course claimed a couple  of balls during the days play.

Missing this year will be Sid Bina from North Dakota, George and Betty Coulson along with Gary and Helen Cook, from North western Ontario.

 

The Highs and the lows of golf

Yesterday Don had climbed up to top of our golf world with a sizzling round. Today some of the sizzle kind of fizzled as he slipped to a 38 with the help of a 6 on # 8.

Today the sun was shining and very little wind which brought Gary Cook out today and played great steady golf, He mastered # 3 with a great Birdie and finished up the day with a 33, the low score today.

Richard kept up his love affair with the water on # 7 taking a 6 there and came in with 35 for the round.

George played steady golf up the middle of the fairway most of the time and capped it off with a Birdie on #7 . His score for the day was a 34.

All had a good time with some good natured fun.

Judy, Joyce and Sid were out in front and missed some of the fun.

We saw Bill and Jerry and Arthur comming up behind us but don’t know how they did for scores.
They did help in recovering and returning the phone that Richard lost. Another golfer at Cottonwood found the phone, Thanks to everyone who had a hand in the return.
