Bill JacksonBill Jackson Eagle Ridge Golf League News

Tuesday Night was a beautiful evening for golf, but the scores were anything but beautiful

The golf league could not ask for better playing conditions on Tuesday. The course was in great shape although the greens are still rather slow. The conditions were just what league members want to post low scores. However, after the great birdie barrage of last week, it appeared as all the players had been replaced. No one broke par, and as a group, there were only 2 birdies for the night. On average, each player shot 5 strokes higher this week than last. After our initial start last week, the league is beginning to work quite smoothly, and Troy did not become frazzled. That is a good thing.

The league has added one new player and now stands at 26 members. If anyone out there is interested in joining the league, now is the time to make the commitment. I guarantee that it will be the best evening you can spend during the week. You will always be looking forward to Tuesday. It is still not too late to join.

If you believe you are too old to play, or you think your golf game is not quite good enough, be aware that the handicaps and the tee boxes are all adjusted for both age and score. These modifications will place everyone on equal footing. Age is not a factor because whether you are 20 or 80+, you will find players within that group.

Now for the scores and the highlights for May 8. No one was “on,” and the results reflect it.
