Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Aug. 15, 2012 3C COUNTRY HIGH GOLE00 GOLF RESULTS Whitehawk Ranch Ladies Golf Another beautiful day on the golf course, Tuesday was thb fourth round of Ace of Aces. Qualifying were Cassie McNamara, low gross, and Chris Hyatt, low net. Congrat- ulations, ladies. On Sunday, Aug. 5, the pro shop at Whitehawk put on the third nine-hole couples tour- . nament. The theme was sports and Tad and his crew went all out. On one hole we had to tee off with a tennis racket, another hole featured an aluminum baseball bat, a third hole had a left-handed driver (no one here plays left- handed) and to round out the event one hole featured a 1950s set of golf clubs (at least I think they were of that vin- tage) that everyone had to use from tee to green. We are still talking about the fun we had. Following play, Shirley, Marcie and the crew put on another great meal, which fea- tured popcorn, peanuts and Cracker Jacks presented in sports bags. Thanks, ladies, for joining in on the sports theme. Happy golfing! Mt. Huff Wednesday Morning Scramble Aug. 8 dawned bright and relatively smoke-free, bring- ing out a good number of golfers for the Wednesday Morning Scramble at Mt. Huff Golf Course. First place team members were Gary Metzdorf, Don Mc- Connell and Mike Ingle. In second place was the team of Bill McRoberts, Greg Stevens and Leo Sorosinski. Closest to the pin honor was taken by Jerry Quam. Again this week, we had a three-way tie for the chip-in contest, with the award going to Gary Metzdorf, Don Mc- Connell and Mike Ingle. Graeagle Meadows Women's Golf Club On Aug. 2, the Graeagle Meadows Women's Golf Club played a game called "O.N.E.S." Scores were kept only on holes that begin with the letters O, N, E and S. This included holes numbered 1, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 16, 17 and 18. Players added their total score on these holes and subtracted one-half of their handicap. Members could play either the combo tees or the red tees. Annie Fischer won first place on the combo tees, with Giuliana Glazer taking second place and Dink Rife coming in third. There were two flights playing the red tees. Taking first place in the first flight was Dee Walker, with JoAnn Lake coming in second. Jen- nifer Baker took third place and Bey Reynolds came in fourth. In the second flight, Renee Miller took first place with Donna Swanson taking second and Esther Rimbault coming in third. Lake Almanor West Women's Golf Club The Aug. 2 game was "low net & low putts." First place went to Pat Fricke with a 71. Great play- ing, ladies; all the scores were really close. Low putts was a tie between Kathi Shennan and Carol Regimbal; each had 33 putts. On Aug. 9, we played "3 clubs & a putter." It is a tough game to play; it always seems like later you think, "Why did I pick this club?" First flight winner was Julie Azevedo with a 74. Second flight winner was Judy Cooper with a 71. We also had three birdies today: Julie Azevedo had a birdie on No. 12 and Carolyn Willhoit had two birdies, the first one on No. 6 and the sec- ond one on No. 15. Mr. Huff Thursday Night Scramble The Aug. 9 world-famous Mt. Huff Thursday Night Scramble was again a super success. Seven teams came out in spite of the heat, but a slight breeze kept both the heat and the smoke at bay. The team of Greg Stevens, Bob McIlroy, Mike Edwards and Doug Euper came in at an astounding 6 under for first place. After a chip-off between Dick Grace and Darel Joseph, the team of Dick Grace and Gary and Carol Metzdorf came in second at 5 under. Longest drive went to Smashin' Don Sheffield and closest to the hole went to Ea- gle Eye Darel Joseph. Summer is waning, but not the enthusiasm at scrambles. It is never too late to experi- ence the fun and camaraderie. Every Thursday night check-in is 4:30 p.m., tee-off at 5 p.m. Call for more informa- tion on super golf and great food, 284-6300. Graeagle Meadows On this hot summer day when only the most insane golfers would be out on the course (that would be most of us), it's nice to reflect on the first half of the golf season. The Men's Club installed the Graeagle Men's Club Marker to acknowledge mem- bers of the Graeagle Men's Golf Association who have made significant contribu- tions to the club over their lifetimes. The next time you are at the course please spend a moment in silence thanking those deceased members who spent many enjoyable years helping the club become bet- ter for all golfers. The weekly golf activities take up eight days of the week only in Graeagle is this pos- sible. On Monday, there is "Monday Madness" in which mixed couples play any game the tournament chairperson selects -- it is always a fun surprise. On Tuesday, many of the men play on the Travel Team and the ladies have their own games of the day. Then on Wednesday, the men play their games and the ladies are glad the men are out of the house. On Thurs- day, the ladies have their day on the course and the men lick their wounds from Wednesday play. Then on Fri- day, there is "The Bandits" and "The Banditos" slugging it out. Come Saturday, there is usually some special tour- nament where most all show up -- we are like rocks -- all over the place. Finally, on Sunday groups magically as- semble for afternoon prayer sessions on the tees, fairways and greens. I think prayer is for another week of fun -- their prayers are kindly an- swered. On the eighth day of the week some grocery shop- ping, house cleaning and laundry are done -- maybe. So let us report on some of the special tournaments that have occurred this summer: The "Guys & Gals" 2012 Couples Championship took placeJuly 18 and 19: In flight 1 (nef), the winners were Kathy Sipel and Ken Stevenson with a score of 198; in second place, there was a tie between the teams of Dee Walker and Jim Adams and the team of Annie Fischer and Tom Balestri with a score of 199; and in fourth place, the team of Bey and Jim Reynolds had a score of 203. In flight 2 (net), the winners were Sue and Tom Taylor with a score of 187; in second place, the team of Lor- raine and Jack Cornish had a score of 192; and in third place, Dottle and Ken Hattich had a score of 195.

He can be reached at 836-2323 for lessons or information. Q: What are some of Graea- gle Meadows' highlights? A: I think some of the high- lights of our golf course is that we're an old-style golf course. There's nothing terribly tricky about it. Everything is right in front of you and it's an easy golf course to walk. Other than our first hole there's nothing really tricky. It's an easy walk. It's enjoyable. We offer the same rate six days a week; walking is $55 and driving is $75. We have one special day at $55, which includes your cart. We have four sets of tees and a combination of tees for any type of golfer. If you're a low handicap golfer we offer a blue set of tees all the way down to juniors and begin- ners which we have a shorter set of green tees for. Q: How long does it take to play the course? A: Well if you come down here at 5 in the afternoon you can do it in 2-1/2 to three hours. But typically if you are coming in the middle of the day it's going to be four to 4- 1/2 hours. Q: What would you say is the most difficult hole at Graeagle Meadows? A: I think it's the fourth hole. It is our No. 1 handicap hole. It requires a good drive down the left center. We have a group Of trees near the green you need to navigate around. Q: Do you have any tips on navigating that hole? A: Drive down the left side of the fairway and it will open it up to the green. If you are on. the right side it will be tough to get over some of the trees. LakeAlmanor Open FEATURING ALL THREE LAKE./iLMANOR GOLF COURSES!
