On May 6 the first round of the Eclectic play took place. The second and final day was May 13. First of all, congratulations to Dolly Schaedel for her hole-in-one on No. 6. The flight winners in the Eclectic rounds were: 1st Sandy Patton-Joseph, 2nd Ann Hammond and 3rd Dolly Schaedel; Flight 2 winners were Sharon Claude, Jo Ann Hicks and Mary Sanchez; Flight 3 winners were Pattie Seiberling, Ellen Bond and Kathy Jones.

The scramble played on May 20 was won by the team of Rachael Rainville, Marlene House, Sharon McKoy and Judy Dingledine. In first place the team of Sandy Patton-Joseph, Paula Elbery, Ellen Bond and Dorthy Zander; in third place the team of Jan Hawks, Shirley Reisendorph and Wanda Johnson. The low gross play on May 27 was won by Donna Purcell, Ann Hammmond and Carolyn Hoffland tied for second. The Flight 2 winners were June Parks, Pattie Seiberling and Ellen Bond tied for second; Pat Kreiling, Jan Bazzill and Marj Rasmussen were winners in Flight 3.
I came across an article titled “Let’s Hear it for the Golf Tee. It’s such a simple thing.” This simple thing is the humble golf tee, a peg made of wood, plastic or some other materials that most of us grab by the handful and stuff in our pockets. It’s as much of the game of golf as the ball and flag sticks are. In 1899 a Harvard-educated African-American dentist designed this “mighty accessory that props up the game.” A factory in Maine churns out two million a day. Early in the 20th century a little mound of dirt was formed by a player or his caddy, the dirt or sand was moistened and kept in a box; hence, “tee box.” The hot weather is upon us so take care! Talk with you next month.
