IRS Wednesday Golf League Newsletter

Week 2 – April 25, 2018

 

First off for this week was the Skins/Greenies/Long Putt pot was short $10.00.  Please be careful when checking off that you are in the games and put your money in.  Only mark on the sheet for the games you are playing in.  Since the pot was short, the $10 was taken off the pay-outs/eagle pot.

Again this week it looks like there are still some that need to get in some extra practice.  Putting was still difficult since the greens are still suffering from aeration.

Treasure Chuck Reckers reports that 63 regulars are current on dues/green fees and thanks those league members.  There is only 1 outstanding; please bring your payment on May 2.

Birdie passes have been updated.  Your Birdie pass for this year’s regulars is still good from prior years.  If you don’t have your card CRC courses have your phone number listed.

Subs this week were:  Jeff Barnhorst & Mike Schwarberg (for Team Schumacher), Don Bazsika (for Team Halpin), Kelly Johnson (for Team Freeman), Bob Kendrach (for Team Buescher), Jack Snowden (for Team Patmann), and Dan Varndell (for Team Anderson).  Thanks for being there.

Absent again this week was our League President.  Col. Schu where are you?

Reminder on being at the tee box ahead of tee time.  There is a league after us, so play ready golf.

Terry Jolly from AJ Jolly Golf Course will be retiring this year after 40+ years of service.  Terry has always run a great course for our Outing.  There will be a card in the club house for everyone to sign.

Division Standings:  Division A has Team Anderson still in the lead with Defending League Champs Team Bramlage at the bottom (or top of the Team Points upside down list).  Division B has Team Harms taking the lead.  Division C has Team Schumacher taking the lead without their leader.  Division D has Team Freeman taking the lead. 

Heard or Seen in the Clubhouse:  

-Team Pfeiffer possibly changing their name to what they signed (smelly, don’t step in it?).

-Frank Leirey excited about shooting a 40 and winning the greenie on #14 and long putt on #18.  (Frank you should have gotten into the skins that would have been $45.)

 

I did get to witness two of what must have been the most painful rounds.  One was me vs. Jim Hill.  I shot a 49 (1.2 over my average) while Jim Hill (getting 4 strokes) shoots a 68 (16 over his average).  Then Don Bazsika subbing for my team vs Sherrill Swann.  Sherrill (getting 11 strokes) shoots a 55 (7.6 under her average) while Don shoots a 61 (10.5 over his average).  Don Bazsika had me laughing on #8 as his hard hit drive went through the middle of the spruces and landed about 100 yards past.  His next three iron shots managed to hit trees with one almost hitting him in return.  So painful I had to laugh.  I do have to comment on Sherrill’s play, she was hitting the ball well and put the hurt on Don.

 

Next week I will start putting in the most under and most over average.

Skins—Greenies—Long Putt

Most of the regulars and subs in the league know about Skins, Greenies, and Long Putt. For those that do not, each week there will be a sheet and a box on one of the tables in the clubhouse.  The sheet will have the names of all the regulars and blank lines at the bottom for subs to write in their names. $3.00 entry fee for Skins; $1.00 entry fee for Greenies and $1.00 entry fee for Long Putt.  Place a check mark or X for each category for which you are participating.  If the Briefcase is not out notate on your scorecard your intent to play and pay when you complete your match.  First teams out please take the markers, last teams in please bring markers in.
