Firecracker Open 2015

I hope you all enjoyed celebrating our day of Independence this last Saturday.
The weather was perfect for picnics, backyard parties and of course golf.
We celebrated here at "the dog" with our annual Firecracker open.  We've been hosting this event for over 30 years now, and it's always a blast!  After Mike M. sang the star spangled banner accompanied by Mike V. on the bugle, the usual suspects, along with some new entries set out in search of birdies and eagles. In the end one eagle and three birdies took first place.  Even though my team didn't fare so well, we still had fun! The spirit of the day continued on with a recap of every missed putt and every stray shot.  After each round purchased, each story got bigger and better..  Go figure!
It was now time to head out and play another nine hole scramble.  Six partook in the Bud open tradition. The winners end up paying for the round.  Kinda bass akwords, but that's the deal.
That's how I spend my 4th of July.   How about you? Drop me a line and share your holiday.

I have plenty of outings coming up this month with lots to do...
but I feel like the season is almost over?!
I'm posting august events on the board in the club house....AUGUST!?   Oy!
Jeff and crew have the course in excellent condition once again.  It's been a struggle with all the rain..but they trudged through and got the job done.  You guys rock!  Keep up the good work.'re the BOMB!

The weather forecast looks good for awhile.
Hope you can get out and enjoy.
5-5-5 and prime timers are starting to roll in..
Time for me to get back to work.
