End of season for the la Copa group

With the weather in the 90s and most of the winter Texans gone north, Howard and Dianna were the only ones left to play golf  from the LaCopa group on Friday  march 30th.

They had no problem of being the winning team and will carry the championship colors until the league starts up in December , when the winter Texans start to return.

Feb. 23rd Senior Mixed golf at Cottonwood Golf Course.

Golf on Friday feb. 23 started out with a slight breeze and the temperature at about 65 degrees and ended up at 78 degrees and the wind picking up during the round to about 30 mph, and that will test even the best golfers skills.

The wind did test the skills of the 16 golfers who turned up to play and the scores showed a higher than normal amount of strokes to get around the course.

thanks to Tracy for the two guests he brought to this weeks outing.

Paul Martin and Carl Aitken, from Southwestern Ontario,  got their first test of golfing on the narrow fairways and the Texas wind.

Carl adjusted to the wind and narrow fairways and turned in a round of 38, his first time out golfing in a few years. Paul had a bit more difficulty with the width of the fairways, as they were not quite wide enough  or long enough to contain his ball. His first round in five years was a 48.

For the team scores ( the lowest score on each hole), the Green team of Tony Gaudagnolo (35) , Dwayne Miller (39), Doug Mazur (36), and Howard Stewart (39), led the field with a team score of 31.

The Blue team of Dan Luensmann (36), Bev Gaudagnolo (37), Tracy Andrews (42) , Harry LaCore (41) had  a team score of 32 good for second place. ( Tracy only plays golf in texas , about 4 times a winter, he turned in his first par, on hole #8 which is a 200 yard par three and one of the hardest holes on the course).

Gerry Busch (35), Richard Lampi (37), Paul Martin (48), and Carl Aitken with his (38) brought the Red team into 3rd place with a team score of 33.

The White team of Becky Luensmann (43),  Bill Stewart (45), Dianna Stewart (43), and Jo LaCore (38), turned in a team score of 36.

Gerry Busch and Tony Gaudagnolo each shot 35s for the lowest rounds of the day.

Next weeks format will be ” roll the dice” which will add a bit of chance to the game.

seniors mixed golf

Roll the Dice was the format of week 3, for the LaCopa Inn League, (Week two was rained out).

While the bulk of the Golfers in this league stay at the LaCopa Inn on Tyler Ave, there are other golfers from other Winter Texan parks who play with the league every Friday morning at the cottonwood golf Course on Ed Cary Drive.

Tee time is at 10 A M every Friday,  untill the end of March when most of the Winter Texas head north to the colder climate.

20 golfers took part in the golf today with nice weather.

Roll the dice : Each player is assigned a number from the dice, then tees off , after the tee off the dice is rolled to see  which ball will be used.  this is done on every hole. From that point on it is scramble golf, ( best ball) with each player hitting the ball from that point.

The white team (Dee, Dwayne, tony and Keith) led  the charge around the golf course, turning in a blistering 28 for their round ( they must have had better luck with the dice) than the  Blue Team  of Bob M, Dan L, Jim W, and Gerry B.  Their score was a 36, good for fifth Place. 

The Green of Bill S. , Jo L. , Dianna S. , and Joyce F. turned in their card showing a total score of 31,  they shared their score with the The Red team made up of Nancy R. , Becky L. , Doug M.  and Harry L.

 

 

 

 

 

 

In not quite last place were the Pink Team with a 34 on the day. Teresa W. , Howard S., Bev G. and Richard L, made up this fine team.

The only Birdie of the day went to Becky, Nancy, Harry and Doug, from the Red team.

It was breezy on the course. Bob and his wife Dee are missing from the pictures as they had to leave to play at Treasure Hills golf club.
