Fantastic Fourth!!

What a great stretch of weather we're having.  Just in time for the Holiday weekend.
We hosted our annual Firecracker Open yesterday here at "The Dög" and the day was a great success!  16 teams competed and the competition was tough.  My partner and I started out strong on the front nine (5 under!), but then like a sparkler, we fizzled out on the back. 3 bogies...oops!
"can I say CHOKE?!"  Yikes!  Yep......we were bummed. Oh well, nothing a few Michelob lights won't fix.
In the end team Arko/Cabot took first place, team Kerns/Pniewski took second, and team Spence/Karras rounded up third.   A total of 3 skins were amassed with my arch nemesis Laurie taking two....oy!  Good shooting girlfriend!  Prizes were awarded, kegs were tapped, and we all relived each missed putt and each botched shot.  Sounds like a typical holiday on the porch at
St. Bernard Golf Club.   I couldn't have asked for a better way to spend the day.

We have few projects going on around here (never ends) one of which is improving the pavilion area in the middle of the course. This has been on the list for some time, but now with the help of some volunteer members, we are prepping to make way for what we are calling, for now, "Jakes Dog House".  We are asking  suggestions for the name of the pavilion area.  Some are....Jakes dog pound, the pound at Jake's. 
Check things out as your turning towards 5 or 13. Let us know what you think.
We're looking forward to many events to be held there.
Bridge construction on 6 should be complete next week, and sand trap construction should start after that.   One day at a time....

So that's all I got for now.
Hope you're enjoying your weekend.
Make time for some golf. Or even just  drop in for a libation or two, and say how do?
Look forward to seeing you soon.
