Eagle Ridge Golf League News
Tuesday, August 20, was the return of league play. The widely scattered showers' forecast hit our golf course hard, and it was wet. However, although it was the cart path only, we could hit from our newly seed fairways. The fairway grass is coming along nicely, surprisingly full.
Before talking about the league results, the league members and I want to thank Bill Copley, who passed last week, for all he meant to the league and the course. Since the formation of the golf association, followed by the League Formation, Bill acted as treasurer, a director, and a volunteer. We miss you. Our condolences go out to his wife, Dottie, and their children, especially Tom, who also was a league member.
Now to report Tuesday’s results. Closest to the pin and the longest putt were not calculated because we were not certain of the turnout, which was larger than anticipated.
August 19, 2014:
Low Net Score (31) (tie) Victory Swinney, Charlie Curnutte
Low Gross Score (36) (tie) Bobby Preece, Dan Preece, Joey Stepp
Fewest Putts (13) Drew Waller
Greens in Regulation (7) Dan Preece and Ronnie Wellman
This coming Tuesday, August 26, will be league’s last play for the year. The championship is up for grabs, as are the second and third places. Here are the current contenders:
It’s all coming down to the last round - “what a horse race!”
I will be reporting the skills section next week. The final league standings will be reported after the September 2 awards banquet.

Golf Course Update:
MissyThe golf course will open this Monday, August 4th. The Bermuda grass is coming in nicely.
Playing conditions will be as follows: Golf Carts will be CART PATH ONLY! No one will be permitted to hit out of the fairways. You may tee off and if your ball lands in the fairway you will walk out, pick your ball up, drop on the nearest side in the rough, then hit your shot out of the rough.
Until further notice these will be the rules on the golf course and they will be strictly enforced. A lot of money has been put into this reseeding process and we need to allow this process to run it's course and grow in. If you are seen hitting out of the fairway or driving off of the cart path you will be asked to leave the golf course. Until we start hitting out of the fairway the rates will continue to be discounted at $20 during the week and $25 on weekends/holidays.
