Halifax Country Club will be hosting their annual men’s Member-Guest Golf Tournament this weekend at the local club.
Festivities start today with practice rounds. A pool party for the ladies and a social for the golfers. It will continue Saturday with 18 holes of stroke play, and a social and dinner Saturday night along with a dance. It will conclude Sunday with 18 more holes of competition followed by the awards ceremony for the winners.
Tournament director Drew Lewis has put together a fun filled event that should be fun for all. Check out Wednesday’s Gazette for all the results and scores.
Kinderton Country Club concluded their Member-Guest this past weekend and several local golfers played well. Bryan Bevell and James Newcomb won the championship, but Ronnie Moore and Chuck Nelson tied with them for low round on Saturday with a two under 69.
Chris Young and Harold Driggs finished third in the championship flight. In the first flight, Nookie Green and Greg Meeks tied for first, but lost in a match of cards and settled for second.
Bob Tysinger and Harrell Parker were first in the third flight. It is always fun to go to Clarksville to cover golf. They are so hospitable to you and go out of their way to make you comfortable.
You also get to see a lot of folks you know but have not seen in awhile. Saw Wayne Hutson of Hutson Pulpwood fame. A lot of you older softball players will remember Wayne.
I also got to see Harold Bagbey who finished third in the fourth flight. Lest we not forget the world famous Billy Bob Hite, a legend according to him was there with partner James Lewis.
The Burnett boys, Doc and Jay played well also, but did not have a good back nine.
This n’ That
The ladies will be playing a makeup Dixie 6 at Ringgold on Tuesday. We will try to have you results Friday.
Some pretty strong pairings this weekend at Halifax. Woody Clay and Jimmy Clay, Brad Thomasson and Jeff Kidd along with Doc Moore and Jackie Thomasson, just to name a few.
Robert Fallen went all the way to Alabama to get his partner Mike Dunn. No mention of Toll Tide please.
My buddy, Walter Robertson, is playing with the mouthpiece of Greens Folly, David Day. Wear earplugs, Walter.
Our vice president is playing with Brad Schraeder. I hope Luke doesn’t get jealous.
Good luck to all. Have a great week, and when you hit your knees Monday, think about the ones that did not make it back.
