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.

The sun was out and the temps were about 10 c at tee off and climbed to 23 c by the time play was finished afer 18 holes.

12 players signed up for the day’s outing, the 4 lowest handicap golfers each picked two players names out of  hat to form the teams.

The format for the day was “roll the dice” .each player is assigned a number from 1 to 3 and #4 was a roll over, # 5(happy face, take the best ball) #6 (sad Face, take the worst ball.) Each Player hits their Drive off the tee and then the Dice is rolled to see which drive would be used.

From that point on each player hit from the spot which was the best position on the fairway or green.

The team of Wayne Thomas, Ed Kennedy and Richard Lampi had the best luck with the dice and ended  with a 74 on the day.

Ray Laquerre, Gary Ladouceur and Pete Barna followed with a score of 76, with one birdie on  Hole #13.

The  golfers survived strong Texas winds and had a good time
Friday, March 24, 2017.

This was the ending of the La Copa League for another year.
The winds were gusting to 35 MPH, we also had a sprinkle of rain  on holes 5,6,&7.

(the rain always seems to start when you are at the farthest point away from the clubhouse)
You can see by the flag straight out in the picture of the men’s foursome the strength of the wind.
The luck was with the girls as they beat the boys. Howard  thinks it was the rusty golf balls they had to play with after the rain.
