Tuesday June 8th at Fox Hollow vs. Bunker Hills. First tee time is at 1:00 pm.

Well our return match at home against Bunker Hills did not go as planned. I tried to shake some things up a bit with some new partnerships but was %^$#@ slapped.
The team of Heitkamp Geiger won a point. Batman & Robin managed a split 1 1/2 points. Payne & Martin won 2 1/2 points. Our anchor team of Dodd & Sicora were shot out. They did run into a buzz saw with team Bunker Hills making 7 birdies.
With that it left us with a loss 7 to 5 at home!

Tuesday June 29th at Fox Hollow vs Green Haven. First tee time is at 1:00 pm.

Well we finally had our first victory!! Our match against Green Haven at Fox Hollow was a good spirited match. First I would like to thank Mr. Ness and Mr. Beal for stepping up and filling the empty spots. They did so in a wonderful fashion THANK YOU !!
The Heitkamp Pratley duo were strong and got us off to a wonderful start with 3 point sweep. Your beloved Captain and Rick (Elliott) Ness could only manage a half point. After 2 matches we were up by 1 which is a good feelin…
 Was a bit nervous as a Captain as Mr. Dodd asked the question? I will be in the warm up lounge if anyone would like to join me!! Mr. Geiger and Mr. Warm up lounge Dodd took control and with a 3 point sweep game over. Now what is the final going to be?
Our anchor team of Sicora Beal were strong and gained another point and a half for an 8 to 4 victory! Now we are onto Majestic Oaks and will need a strong showing!!
Be good Be great!

We really need a win on Tuesday to help us advance to the playoffs! With that said here is our line up against the mighty Majestic Oaks. Where the greens are slow and the trees overhang the fairways.
12:30 ish first tee time.
1. Gary “I can’t drive my cart to this course” Heitkamp / Dave “Band back together” Sack
2. Mark “I am the batman” Ferber / Ken “The boy wonder” Pratley
3. John ” Lounge warm up” Dodd / Jim “Can handle the radiation” Geiger

Majestic is a strong team and we will need our best for a victory! Again be prepared for a slow golf course. We are playing the Gold tees and starting on #1 Signature course.
Lift clean and place in the bunkers. We are allowed to remove pins your choice.
Make it a great day!


Morning Men,
Another tough loss yesterday at Majestic ” Can you say velcro” Oaks.  A 9 to 3 ass whooping which puts us 1 & 3 to date. We have two remaining matches to finish the season. There is still a chance if we can come up with some victories!!
We are Fox Hollow August 3rd against Wild Marsh and at The Links at Northfork August 10th. At least we can finish with play real golf courses!
Make it a great day!

Tuesday Aug 3rd at Fox Hollow vs Wild Marsh. First tee time is at 12:57 pm.

Fox Hollow wins 6.5 – 5.5

Tuesday August 10th at Links at Northfork.

Well another Senior 8 man season has come and gone. While we defeated the Links at Northfork 8 to 4. We needed Bunker Hills to defeat Green Haven to advance to the playoffs. Green Haven won at Green Haven 7 to 5 leaving us out!!
The home defeat at the hands of Bunker Hills 7 to 5 is the reason we are out. As we look forward we have some players coming up in the age ranks and should be a bit stronger for next year. Until them enjoy the rest of the season and go out and play golf!!
Make it a great day!
