Gwen’s Golfin’ Gab

Things have really been busy since my last column and I do apologize for not getting you the news last week, but as you all know it was a holiday weekend and we were very busy. From Friday, Aug. 31 through Monday, Sept. 3 we had 268 rounds of golf played and of that 268 rounds 129 people were from out of town. We do appreciate these people for taking time out of their busy holiday schedules to come out and enjoy playing on our course! My news may be a bit old but the Thursday Hully-Gully of Aug. 30 had 34 players out for the evening. Posted scores ranged from 30 to 34. There were three 30s, one 31, two 32s, one 33 and one 34. The first place team won the score card playoff with a 30 score and consisted of David Graves, David Hernandez, Oscar Gracia and Jaymie Graves. Second place went to Ted Epley, David Brown, Wayne Rawlings, and Bobbie Williams also with a 30. Third place went to the Leroy Keese team with a 30. The team consisted of Leroy, Gray Carrithers, Dax Millsap, Joe Millsap, and Liz Rudder. Congratulations to each of you! The ladies were to have had their evening of golf on Wednesday but with the shower that we had Wednesday afternoon only 5 showed up to play, and they only played amongst themselves without putting any money up. The ladies also went to Blanket Monday and 10 ladies went out for that venture. I know they had a full day of fun! The Sept. 6 Hully-Gully had six five-person teams and and one six-person team with scores ranging from 30 to 32. There were four 30s, one 31, and two 32s posted and the winning team after a score card play-off went to the Curtis Copeland team of Curtis, David Brown, Jack Roberts, Bobby Williams and Liz Rudder. Second place also with a 30 went to the Leroy Keese team which consisted of Leroy, Clay Jones, Donald Owens, Jay May and Dannye Calley. Third place went to the Michael Valdez team also with a 30 and consisted of Michael, John Rudder, Gabe Moreno, Red McFarland and Doris Jones. Congratulations to each of you! The Sunday 18-hole Hully-Gully was canceled due to the rain that we had on Sunday morning. We had 2.20 inches here at the course. If you haven’t been out to see the course in the last two weeks I do invite you out to see just how pretty and green the course is at this time. We have grass growing in places that haven’t had grass for a few years. This is keeping JT and Cheryl very busy moving almost non stop, but we are very thankful for the plentiful rains and the beauty it has brought to our course. We are in the final week before the Tres-Amigos tournament and it has been full for two weeks. This will be our final two-day tournament of the year. There are 44 teams signed up to play with a waiting list that has four teams on it. We are looking forward to this tournament as it is always a good one. On Thursday this week there will not be a Hully-Gully as the association has called for a work day to tidy up the course for the Tres-Amigos Tournament. If you can come out and help do something during the day or even in the afternoon just contact JT and he will direct you to the right place that needs your helping hand. All help is greatly appreciated and welcomed.! As you all may know, L.A. Gotcher had heart surgery on Monday, Sept. 3 and I am glad to say that Peggy reported that he is home and recovering nicely. I’m sure they would appreciate a call, card or visit from all their friends. L.A. we do miss you and wish you a speedy and full recovery. I also got news this morning that another of our regular golfers has been in the hospital but is also back at home. James Price we also miss you and wish you a speedy recovery. The next regular Hully-Gully will be Thursday, Sept. 20 and you may sign up by calling the Golf Shop at 597-6010 by 4:30 p.m. on that day. Well that is about all the news for this week. I hope to see you out on the course soon or just come by and see how green and pretty it is out here now.
