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.

LaCopa League Golf

What a difference a week makes on the golf at cottonwood, last week the windy conditions resulted in the highest scores of the season.

This week there was just a gentle breeze, and sometimes no wind at all.  there was only 4 strokes separating the 4 teams made up of 15 players.

the format for this week was “Roll The Dice” and as always, the dice were not kind to some of the golfers and some had good luck with the rolls.

the Red team started on hole # 2 and had to have a birdie on their ninth hole (# 1) to take the weeks top spot, Jeff Miller chipped in from off the green for the birdie.  Keith Bess and Dwayne Miller were the other players on the team. there score was a 28 .

The blue team of Bev Gaudagnolo, Dan Luensmann, Jim Williams and Richard Lampi took second spot with a 29. the dice were hot and cold, Dan’s Drive on # 5 was about 5 feet from the pin but could not be used as we could not roll his number.

On # 6 they scored the only 5 recorded on the day. the dice was hot on #7 as richard put one on the green, 10″ from the cup and rolled  his own number and had an easy Birdie on the hole. Richard Drove the green to about 4 feet from the cup but the dice had cooled off and that shot could not be used, they ended up with a 4 on that hole

Tony Guadagnolo, Joyce Foy , Dianna Stewart and Teresa Williams of the Green team shot a 30 for the round and took third spot. they had 6 pars and 3 bogies for that 30.

The team of Tracy Andrews, Sandra Olson, Gerry Busch and Howard Stewart suffered from the fickle dice and Scored four Bogies and 5 pars for a total of 31.

Some of the Winter Texan’s will be headed north before next Friday’s golf. Everyone of the LaCopa group wishes them a safe journey and hope to see them again next year.

 

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.
