It was another hot sunny day in southern Texas, playing on the 9 hole, par three course, a Cottonwood Country club, which is open to the public. It is a well maintained course with holes that vary in length from 95 yards to 205 yards.

 

18 of the finest senior golfers took advantage of the nice weather to show off their golf skills , and to have fun with a group of like-minded golfers, who like to gamble on the roll of the dice.

This weeks format best ball, with the exception of off the tees.
On each hole, players hit their tee shots and then a player rolls the dice to see which ball would be used to finish the hole. from there it is a scramble.

Bragging rights for the week went to Bill Stewart, Dee Martintoni and Tony Guadagnolo.
The total reported on their scorecard was a one over parr 28.
Bill made the putt on the last hole to win for the White team. It has to be noted here that Bill, took putting lessons all week getting ready for this weeks game.

Don and Donna Reisberg left to try their luck in the casinos on their way to florida and we wish them well, if the are playing dice.

Seniors Mixed golf La Copa League Jan 20th 2017

17 players took part in the Friday league with 6 more golfers who just arrived this week.

The format this week was ‘roll the Dice’ . Each player hits the ball off the tee.

If they are playing as a threesome, each player is assigned 2 numbers off the dice.
one player will roll the dice and the number showing on the Die will determine who’s shot is played. Players can take turns rolling the dice as the holes are played.
From that point on everyone plays the best ball.This repeats on every hole.

On a four player team each player is assigned a number 1 through 4, and if those numbers turn up
then that is the ball played.
If the number 5 turns up they play the best ball, if the number 6 turns up then they play the worst ball.
From there everyone plays the best ball.

This week there were 5 teams.

Red team—- Bev Guadagnolo, Duane Miller, Jo LaCore and Don Reisberg.
White team– Harry LaCore, Dan Luensmann, Dorothy Kline and Doug Mazur
Blue team— Fred Kline, Bob Martintoni and Keith Bess
Pink team—-Bill Stewart, Joyce Foy and Dee Martintoni
Green team–Gerry Busch, Tony Gaudagnolo and Richard Lampi.

The White and Pink teams both turned in 29s to tie for the weekly Honors.

The Red and Green teams both turned in 30s to take second place.

The Blues shot a 32 having turned in the only 5 on the day, this coming on the tough 5th hole.

Despite of all the valiant efforts of all the golfers no one could get a Birdie.
