Hello out there Mainlands Golfers.
It has been a truly hot and scorching week. There was no rain this weekend and both scrambles went off with out any issues.
The Saturday Scramble . . .
1st Place Matt, Brian, and Tony -12
2nd Place Stu, Rex, Carl, Charlie, and Frank -11
3rd Place bob, Chuck, Pete, Rob, and Tim -11
1st Place Jim, Stuart, Kevin, Ed, Charlie -8
2nd Place Greg, Al, Craig, Marc, Ron -7
Team #6 and Bob won closest to the pin!
Sunday 2 Person Scramble . . .
22 teams showed up which is a great showing. There was no chance of rain and the sun was glaring. Very minimal wind came into play and it was HOT. I apologize for running out of water in the coolers on two of the water stations out on the course. We recently hired a weekend hydration steward, or a ‘water stew’ as they are more commonly known. I let the poor fellow go with out notice. I actually had Mike fire the guy because I am a little intimidated by him to be honest. In any event I am pledging resources to combat the water crisis in the hopes that this will not be a concern going forward. In all due honesty I do take the hydrational health of everyone on the course rather seriously. That is why I am also cutting the price of Powerade and Water in HALF for anyone who golfs in the Sunday Scramble.
Now with out further Mt Dew . . .
1st Place Rob Neighbor and Vaughn Rodriguez – 62 $42 EACH goes into their club credit accounts!
2nd Place David Lanham and Mike Corley – 65 $25.20 EACH goes into their club credit accounts!
3rd Place Matt Easterman and Matt Powers 65 $16.80 EACH goes into their club credit accounts!
Closest to the Pin was #17 and Dennis Haysley ! Way to go everyone.
Mike and I also shot 62 but as everyone should know we are not competing for prize money just bragging rights. Rob and Vaughn eagled the lowest handicap hole #11, to secure 1st place.
I was just happy to be out golfing on Sunday after battling some personal medical crap. It is just good to be healthy enough to golf. On a similar note the Mainlands Golf Club lost one of our own this past Wednesday. Bud Weber our head starter and front counter position passed away after having a heart attack while out golfing. My thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family. Bud was a kind and genuine man. I never heard him say anything negative about anyone and in fact most of the things he said were thoughtful and wise. He will be remembered fondly.
