S3

This sportswriter apologizes for the late entry but with the cold weather delaying our play I had no scores to report on. However, now that play is underway we will be a week behind until the weather wants to cooperate with us (fingers crossed).

Rain, wind, thunder and lightning aside, team Fore Dirty Birdies cleaned house on The Fab Fore. Fore Dirty Birdies are Loni Grant, Rita Jo Smith, Holi Weatherwax and Cassandra Weatherwax. The Fab Fore consists of Dana DesRosier, Jessica Sure Chief, Noel Stewart and Laurel Bullcalf. 

Even though the Fab Fore didn’t beat their opponents on the June 27 day, Dana Gilham made a 15 foot putt on hole 6 on the make up game on Tuesday, June 25!  Leaving her opponents speechless except for the loud yell, which probably scared a few deer away. 

This Thursday the ladies will be doing a team scramble so look for next week’s paper to see whose team came out on top, who fell out of a cart, and who threw a club or two.

July 2 Results

Does it seem like Mother Nature might be a bit confused on what season we’re currently in? We have played in wind, rain and a little snow this golf season so far. While the weather’s been cold, team Bud Light has kept their game on ice until the team scramble held on July 2. 

 Jonnalea Tatsey, Darcy Skunkcap, Rose St. Goddard and Rachel Redhorn won the team scramble with a net score of 27.2. Team 3 Rivers Telephone Communications came in second with a net score of 27.3. Looks like that 10th of a handicap came in handy as both teams shot a 35. So, have to say “Bird, Bird, Bird is the word”! The 3 Rivers team consists of Sherie Blue, Mary Blue, Skye Gilham, and Shannon Connelly. 

Also, unofficially the memorial golf tournament for Ollie Kay Hall and Mona Matthews has been scheduled during Heart Butte Indian Days. These lifelong friends and co-workers were essential in the beginning of the East Glacier Women’s League, so be on the lookout for entry dates.

Look for our article next week to see how the gals did in the Mixed Scramble. This year we wanted to switch up play a bit and add a few scrambles on days that were close to holidays or NAID. The mixed scramble mixes up all the 1, 2, 3, and 4’s of each team to form a new team. What a way to put an individual on the spot and get a chance to golf with some gals you normally don’t get a chance to golf with!
