SLV Men’s Social Golf 9-Hole group (MSG9) Holds Second "Golf Fun Time" Open 9-Hole Tournament

SLV Men’s Social Golf 9-Hole group (MSG9) Holds Second "Golf Fun Time" Open 9-Hole Tournament
By: Rodney Wurst

On a hot summer afternoon on June 12th, 69 golfers came out to play "Golf Fun Time" in the mid 90 degree weather. The tournament was open to all SLV residents regardless of gender or level of play. Participants were allowed to play and compete with those using the same tee position - White, Gold, Silver or Green. Scores were then adjusted based on the Callaway Scoring System which does not require a handicap. After finishing their 9-hole round of golf, the players enjoyed a social get together at the River Grille and a wonderful buffet dinner while the scorecard data was fed into the computer and final scores calculated.

The actual, unadjusted scores for the 9-hole tournament ranged from 40 – 67 which reflected the wide variety of players participating in the event. However, after entering the scores into the Callaway System, which allows the less skilled player to have a few bad holes, scores were revised and a few players at every level were within a couple of strokes of finishing in the money. This resulted in several players being tied for some of the winning positions within the various categories. The ties were resolved by the players participating in a Putt-Off in their respective tee category.

The Putt-Off was conducted after the dinner on the Tara Practice green with each player getting 2 putts to try to win their respective tee category. Results of outright winners and Putt-Off ties are as follows.

MEN - White Tee: Roger Jameson
MEN - Gold Tee: Bob Emmons, Bob Bricely, Bob Divita, Steve Delaney Mike Tallent, Larry Slater, Jim Baily, Dan Buckingham, Ron Martin, John McGuigan, Mike Vollmer
MEN - Silver Tee: Jack Toland
WOMEN - Silver Tee: Terri McCarbery, Diana Bricely, Sandy Menard, Karen Bolin, Kathie Kase, Heidi Martin, Betty Dodge, Wendy Kvale
WOMEN - Green Tee: Beverly Buckingham
Men’s Closest to the Pin

Women’s Closest to the Pin

The MSG9 golf group plays primarily for the enjoyment of going out and having a good time with their fellow SLV residents. To that end and as the name 'Golf Fun Time' implies, the tournament was a success. In addition to the fun and great meal had by everyone, all proceeds will go to the MSG9 Course Beautification Fund.

Thanks to the Tournament Committee of Dennis Kase, Dave Menard, Ron Martin and, Bob Divita for all of their efforts to make this a wonderfully successful event. Thanks also to the SLV staff at the River Grill for the excellent Food and Service.
