Golfers enjoy tournament, picnic
The second Leisure World Guys & Gals Tournament of the month was played on the Turtle Lake Golf Course on June 30 and was followed by a picnic at the Clubhouse 1 picnic area. There were numerous raffles of Roger Dunn discount cards, plus golf balls and hats provided by United Healthcare and Optum. A good time was had by all. Eighty-five golfers and family members enjoyed a delightful feast of grilled hamburgers and hot dogs, potato salad, coleslaw, beer, soda, wine and water. Dessert was apple pie and cupcakes.
In the tournament, three flights of a one-man-and-onewoman teams participated for best net scores, four circle holes (within a 5-foot circle) and two closest-to-the-pin challenges. A total of 32 teams of golfers competed through the early morning and into the afternoon. At the initial 7:30 a.m. tee time, the weather was overcast, cool and windless. Only 1 of the 32 rounds was net above par. Bill Long recorded a Hole-In-One—his second this year and on the same hole.
The greens and course fairways remain in very good condition, with the wet and muddy spots mainly gone. However, the tee boxes are still in poor shape, with very low growth and many bald spots.
The golfers extend a special thanks to the Starters, who are a big help in keeping the various ladies’ and men’s tournaments on time and running smoothly.
