Golf Tampa Bay

Hello and good day to you Mainlands Golfer!  After some technical internet-type issues I am finally able to post the Scramble results online.  The scores have been totaled.  Then they were tabulated, testified, and re-verified, all under the watchful eye of the golf department of the GRU.  These scores should be the most accuratest EVER.

The Saturday Scramble bounced, hopped, and rolled, along in its normal fashion.  4 Teams in two flights won some prize money.

Flight A

First Place – Stu, Bob, Frank, Rex, and Carl -11

Second Place – Karen, Mark, Bruce, and other Mark -9

Third Place – Mike, Stan, other  Mike, Jeff, and Tom -8

Flight B

1st Place Whit, Jim, Stuart, Steven, Kevin

Closest to the Pin was Team #6 – WAY TO GO PETE

The Sunday Scramble ended on Sunday.  The weather was sublime.  A nice breeze lasted the whole round as the clouds kept the burning sun at bay.  We played a standard 2 person scramble and some scores were pretty impressive.

1st Place Trent and Corey – 10

2nd Place Vaughn and Rob -2

3rd Place – Steve and Rita +1

Closest to the Pin was on #6 by Steve Hensley.

The Pot from the prior weeks rain out was added to this weeks for a total of $114  so each of the winners got paid a kings ransom of $28.50 EACH.  Who says the stakes aren’t high?

A few weeks ago I gave Rob Neighbor the attendance award for the Sunday Scramble.  But the TEAM with the most consistent attendance was Rick Pightling and Lew Tucker.  These gents were here in the sun, in the rain, and in the mud.  Sometimes all in the same day.  For being consistently considerate, and attentive attenders The Mainlands Golf Club is thrilled to give a dozen Wilson Duo U golfs balls to these gentlemen.

Finally I would like to thank all of the golfers that came out and made this summer’s Two-Person Scramble an awesome weekly event.  I truly enjoyed playing with everyone I was paired up with.  I look forward to doing it all again next year.

THE FINAL ONE… REALLY.

Well what a weekend for Golf!!  Tiger is back on top in a rather dramatic fashion.  People are going nuts and rightfully so.  The guy is beyond a doubt impressive.

The Saturday Scramble roared along with over 9 groups.  The weather has been mostly dry and the grounds crew is finally catching up giving the course the good ‘hair cut’ it has needed.

We had enough groups this week to have two flights with 3 teams in each winning prizes.

Flight A

1st Place – Steve, Stuart, Kevin, & Jim -13

2nd Place – Kenzie, Paul, Bama, & Jess -11

3rd Place – Chuck, Peter, Robert, Bob, & Kim -8

Flight B

1st Place – Matt, Johnny, John, & Brian -8

2nd Place – Kevin, Stan, & Jamie -7

3rd Place – Tom, Duke, Marlo, Dave -6

Closest to the Pin was Dan on Team #6

All of the winners have Prize money deposited into their Club Credit accounts and Dan has golf balls behind the counter from the closest to the pin.

The second to last Sunday Scramble started off with and bang and ended with a rather large clap of thunder, followed by some rather large and quite cold drops of rain.  Every team finished at least 9 holes so we did not issue rain checks.  The pot was $48 and that money carries over to next week.  Our next and last scramble of the year will be at 4pm and we are playing the regular 2 person, better ball scramble.  This summer has had a great run with only two cancelled days and two rain outs all season.  Considering all of the weird rain we got I have to say that’s pretty good.

So congratulations to all who came out and played.  I look forward to this coming Sunday Scramble giving it one last hurrah before the days start getting really short.
