Well the Golf Course certainly is GREEN. That is what happens when you get almost 3 inches of rain on a Saturday. You also get a Scramble that is closed down. Again. The picture in the caption was taken by me on #18 at the rounds conclusion. The rainbow was an awesome end to a wet and awesomely fun round. Something about wading through the mud makes me reminisce fondly of my childhood.
The Sunday Scramble started off on a Saturated and Soggy course. The course was about the most wet conditions I have ever played. But we finished the round much to my surprise, with 8 groups starting the day and only 6 groups completing the round. Due to the extremely hydrated course conditions we did not play the 4 club scramble rather a regular scramble with up to 15 clubs in your bag. After the score cards were methodically and precisely dehydrated we fed them into the Golf-Tabulator 9000 for the official scramble results.
1st Place – Stuart and Rich +4
2nd Place – Dave and Rob +12
3rd Place – Tristan and Ryan +12
(Ties are broken by team score on lowest handicap hole)
Closest to the Pin was the 6th hole when Rob Neighbor plugged an AWESOME shot to like maybe 12 feet. You know when the greens are that soft at least it makes it east to repair your ball mark, even when you hit it so high that the entire ball plugs into the green. I think everyone in our group on Sunday hit at least one ball that was completely enGOLFed in grass.
The prize money pot has been dispersed to the top three teams from a pool of the prize money of the teams that completed 18 holes. The 2 teams that did not finish their round will have their money rolled over into the pot for next weeks scramble. The winners have money in their club credit accounts and Rob has a bunch of golf balls behind the counter with his name on them.
Next week we will attempt my favorite, the 4 club challenge.
Stay dry my fellow golfers…
