Men’s Golf Club

The second Leisure World Men’s Golf Club Tournament of the month was played on July 27. Three groups of three flights of variously skilled golfers vied for best net scores (gross score minus handicap), plus two circle holes (shots within a 5 foot radius are rewarded) and two closest to the pin challenges. The Turtle Lake Golf Course is a 1658-yard 18 hole-par 54 course, that tests all who play.

Scores and winners of the last 3 tournaments are now available. Results will be posted at the starter shack bulletin board as they become available.

A total of 49 golfers teed off and played 18 holes. There were only eight circle hole winners but a remarkable 57 birdies. Closest to the pin on the second hole was Hyon Shinwtug, and Gene Archambault on hole No. 11. The lowest gross score was carded by Dong Kim at an even par-54 and the lowest net score was Sam Williamson at 49.

All golfers are responsible for their tee box divots and ball marks on the greens. Golfers are asked to repair their own marks, plus one more.

The next men’s tournament will be on Aug. 10 and then every second and fourth Wednesday of the following months. Those who planned to play in any tournament and cannot, should contact Alan Sewell at (541) 324-8558 or Dave LaCascia at (801) 674-5975 as soon as possible. Golfers should arrive 10-15 minutes prior to their scheduled tee time and be ready to play.
