At the March 16 Guys & Gals Tournament at LW’s Turtle Lake Golf Course, two golfers scored holes-in-one. Terry Thrift aced the difficult 115-yard fourth hole, while Bert Thompson scored her ace on the 100-yard 12th. Prize money will be shared with their playing partners.

A St. Paddy’s Day theme was evident throughout the course, with green balloons on flags, green-frosted doughnuts and LW leprechauns to greet golfers. Several give-away items (golf balls and water) were distributed throughout the round.

A total of 36 one-man-andone- woman teams participated for best net scores, eight circle holes (within a 5-foot radius) and two closest-to-the-pin challenges on par-3 holes. Playing conditions changed quickly throughout the day. At the opening 7:30 a.m. tee time, it was a relatively warm 57 degrees, and the course damp from overnight watering. But the sun was out early, and a mild wind came up mid-morning. This week, an incredible 35 of the 36 teams posted a net score at or under par. In addition to the two holesin- one, there were a remarkable 64 birdies and a season-high 24 circle holes.

All scores below are net (gross score minus handicap). A Flight handicaps are 0-9, while B Flight are 10-12 and C Flight are 13-18.
