Labor Day and Starting Early

No league on Labor Day. Enjoy the time off!

After Labor Day, we will begin early and start closing registration at 5:45.

Even with the earlier start, expect to finish in the dark for the last few weeks. Bring glow discs, glow tape, and lights as needed. Flashlights are ok, but you must be careful not shine your light at people on other holes!

Week 15 & 16

Two aces in the last two weeks. Jimmy Collis hit hole 13 in week 15 and takes $192 from the regular ace pool. Brad Frase hit hole 15 the following week. Only $65 for Brad from the regular ace pool, but he will collect a big pot from the Super Pool as well which hasn't been hit since Hundo got it 7 weeks ago.

Sean Adkins had the hot round of 43 last week.

It's starting to get darker out, so slower groups should begin thinking about bringing glow discs or lights. (Yes, that's ... more

We may not be able to award a berth to every division signed up for. Priority will be given to MPO, FPO (or FA1), MA1, MA2, MA40. Will consider other divisions as needed to make 5 total.

Week 13

77 Players on another beautiful evening.

A lot of good scores in the AM1 division, topped by Brendan Toggweiler again who shot 43.

No aces. $67 will carry over to next week. Been several weeks now since the Super Pool was hit by Hundo, so that pot is also growing.

Week 12

Week 12 was a beautiful evening. Very little wind and the discs were flying true (for the most part). Ty Alfano took full advantage and deuced his first 9 holes of the round on his way to a 13 under 41! That was the hot round of the night and ties the hot round for the season.

Another ace, this time by Brendan Toggweiler who hit hole 8. He will collect $201 from the ace pool. Congrats Brendan! BTW ... Brendan also shot an impressive 42, closing the gap in a tight AM1 division.

Remember, your name must be on the ace pool list to collect.

Week 11

11 Weeks are done ... half way through the season.

Brad Frase led the pros this week with a 45.

Luke Czarnik hit the 3rd ace of the year. On hole 12! That is a pretty rare hole to hit since most of us can't even get it that far. Well done Luke!

As we head into week 12, good it's a good time to remind everyone that it takes 12 weeks to qualify for overall awards for the league. You must also sign up for membership before the end of the season to qualify.

Awards will be given ... more

Week 8

74 Players in Week. A very brief rain shower gave way to a beautiful evening for golf.

Justin Hundich tossed in the second ACE of the year! Again on hole 2. He collects $250 from the $1 ace pool, leaving $169 carry over for next week. Congrats Hundo!

Dan James   June 17 at 1:46pm

Week 7

82 Players Showed up last week.
2J led the Pros with a 45. Moreno and 'Teach' also shot 45 in the Pro Masters division.

No Aces once again. The pot has grown to $353.

Couple scorecards without last names and divisions this week. Please completely fill out the scorecard so I don't end up giving someone the wrong score.

Week 6

101 Players last week. Ty Alfano had the hot round for the Pros with a 43, but a couple of AMs lit it up too! Brendan Toggweiler racked up 12 birdies on route to his 42 with Josh McGrath close behind at 43. Nice!

No aces, so the ace pool now has $283.

Enjoy the long holiday weekend!

Week 5

83 Players for Week 5. 42 was the score to beat once again, this time by Justin Hundich.

There were no aces. The ace pool is up to $197. Reminder, the $1 ace pool pays out a maximum of $250 for each ace. We will probably pass that amount next week.

Week 4

86 Players came out for week 4. Alfano, McCool, and Herzog tied for the hot round of 42! Impressive!

There were no aces, so $130 carries over in the ace pool.

As the weather becomes nicer and the turnouts are larger, please make groups of 5-7 platers.

The grace period for membership is now over. Guests can still play and are eligible for the weekly prizes, but are not eligible for the Super Pool or Hot Round Bonus (Pros). Amateur guests also pay $2 each week (instead of $1 for members ... more

Week 3

60 Players for Week 3. One of these days we will start getting warm weather on Monday, but at least the rain held off for the most part.

The scorecards were better this week. Thank you!

Week 2

64 Players for week 2.
Kevin Rose hit the first ACE of the year on hole 2! Kevin's name is on the ace pool list, so he will collect $183 ! Congrats Kevin.
