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.

 

Winter Texan golf

As the weather starts to get better up north, the winter texans feel the need to get home before all of the snow melts away.

Some of the group that stay at the La Copa Inn have already have left and over the next 3 weeks all will be gone to their summer homes, some to Saskatchewan, Alberta, Manitoba, North and South Dakota, Iowa, Illinois, Ontario (north and south)and a few other places.

This weeks golf outing of the LaCopa group saw us play with individual scoring and the best score on each hole used for the group bragging rights.
There was very little wind and since we are not used to golfing in calm weather no one could adapt and most of the scores were higher than normal, George had the best round of the group with a 32, congrats to George.blue team mar 14 2014
