The Monday Ladies Group had a treat this week. June Szody-Gantner, LPGA Class “A” Retired Member, instructed a session on golf technique and also led a session Sunday morning. We appreciate her great instruction skills and donation of her time.
Congratulations to Julie Lenardson, 1st place in Wednesday evening ladies league. Jackie Smith won 2nd place. Julie had CTP on hole 2 and Donna Jones had CTP on holes 5 and 7. The beautiful sunset was picturesque — huge, bright orange sun with cloud coverage making some pretty blue, pink and red hues.
Men’s League results July 31 include CTP winners Gary Maggard, hole 2; Jim Perry, hole 5 and Jeremy Raney, hole 7. Congratulations to Tony Courtney, 1st place. Doug Jones and Shelby Gray tied for 2nd place.
Friday Cat & Dog Championship winners were June and John Gantner and A-Flight winners were Barbara Tate and David Walker. June had CTP on hole 2 and David CTP on hole 7.
The chestnut tree on hole 6 is loaded with nuts this year. You will not want to go barefoot in the area of the tree because the nuts are very prickly. Also, a few walnut and hickory nuts are already falling possible due to dry weather. We are in dire need of rain at Wedgewood for the trees, grasses, shrubs and ponds.
Have a great golfing week and come visit Wedgewood.
