Senior Mens Thursday golf Aug 31 2017

 

Dice, Red, Cubes, Die, Shapes, Two

Golf for the Thursday’s seniors golf, wound up on Aug 31 this year as the weather in past September’s has been rainy and cold.

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.

Jean Lambert , Vern Herbert and Lance Beauregard, turned in a 77 with a birdie on #8.

Jerry Cripps, Harold Mosley and Steve Splowski, rolled the dice poorly and ended up with a score of 83.

Thanks to Ed Kennedy for organizing the teams every week and for looking after the winners and losers all summer.

Thanks  to Motown for a great meal at the end of the day.

Senior golf on Thursday mornings will continue until the course is closed, with a start time of 9.30 am. for the next couple of weeks.

A moment of silence for senior golfers Ted McLeod and Leo Lamarche was  observed .

Golf season is coming to an end at Little Falls Golf Club

Little Fall Golf Coarse closes for the season on October 1st again this year.

It does not mean the end of golf , just that the clubhouse is closed and the locker area will will be closed.

The season was hit and miss during May, June and part of July  due to poor weather conditions.

The greens suffered bad damage from the severe winter and the late spring did not help .

The Seniors group, made up of some very hardy  golfers survived the early bad weather only missed one Thursday and that was due to heavy rain and lightning.
