Club Championship 7.20 A
Course:
Altadena

Thu, July 23, 2020

The first round of the Club Championship saw 19 players on a cool morning, some might call June gloom.  Halfway through the championship, it is not surprising that Kim, Jim Nelson, and Ralph are battling it out for low gross honors.  Andy has low net so far with Bob Bowdoin, Ray, Paul, Tom, and Richard all vying for a place on the leaderboard.

Course:
Altadena

Thu, July 16, 2020

What happened to summer?  We had a spring-like morning for our team event of 4-Man Scramble.  It was good to see Doc back playing golf with his regular group. It was a tight finish as expected with these team events with one stroke separating the top finishers but Vester, Park, Paul and Tom took top honors.  Richard, Doc, Paul and Jim were close behind for second, while Kim, Ralph, Jim and John had to settle for third place.   (There are no on-in -ones or skins in our team events.)

Montebello Away game
Course:
Montebello

Tue, June 16, 2020

We fielded two foursomes at that very nice Montebello GC for this month's away game. The course was in OK conditions, the greens were in good shape but the fairways were only fair. Jim Nelson ran away from the field carding an 84 and 5 strokes ahead of Ralph who took second in low gross.  Bill hung in there for third.

Jim Stowell took low net honors edging out Tom Story in a tiebreaker with Richard taking third.

Six Blind Holes 6.20
Course:
Altadena

Thu, June 11, 2020

2 Man Best Ball
Course:
Altadena

Thu, May 21, 2020

There was a turnout of 16 members playing 2 Man Best Ball on Thursday. It doesn't seem like we've lost that much game during the shutdown with Vester carding a 39 gross and his partner Tom took low net honors at -5 net to par combining as a team for Best Ball honors.    Jack and Richard took 2nd place with Park and Paul close behind for third.

Irons Only 5.20
Course:
Altadena

Thu, May 14, 2020

With the opening of many golf courses in our area, some of us are back to playing golf.  The course was reported to be in good shape.  We had eleven brave golfers testing both their COVID and golf skils playing "Irons Only"  (Instead of saying irons-and-hybrids-but-not-drivers-or-fairway-woods).  It seems the layoff didn't really hurt play much with Kim taking low net honors and posting the low gross of 39 for the day.  Jim Stowell was a close second and also had a nice gross score of 42.   Ralph took third in low net and also had a nice 42 gross.  Paul and John shared fourth place.

Skins were taken by Kim, Jim, and Jack, but no on-in-ones were carded.

2 Man Scramble
Course:
Altadena

Thu, March 19, 2020

We were able to field only three teams for the 2-Man Scramble this week.  The weather was a factor but I'm sure the corona virus kept people away too.  Don and Ralph played well enough to take the low gross honors for the round but not good enough to beat Doc and John who took first place honors with the low team net.  Since payouts for team events go to the first three teams, all players were on the money list!  

Hansen Dam 3.20
Course:
Hansen Dam

Tue, March 17, 2020

There were only 3 intrepid (i.e. crazy) golfers that showed up at Hansen Dam GC on St Patrick's day for the March "away game", Jim Stowell, John Kirk, and Jack Jourden. Playing from the white tees they were joined by a Mr. Lee. Jim took the day for the club by winning both low-gross and low-net, at least one skin and an on-in-one. Unfortunately, when the rain began on #14 Jack and John headed back to the clubhouse leaving Jim and Mr. Lee to finish by themselves---which they did regardless of the weather!! It was a cold and wet morning for sure but these 3 gave it a go---with Jim besting the day! We are unable to tabulate just how much the club owes Jim!!"

Criers
Course:
Altadena

Thu, March 12, 2020

There was a relatively small turnout for our Criers tournament, either due to the chance or rain or maybe the coronavirus?  We were able to just avoid the rain which came as the last group finished.  The winners were closely packed due in part to the bunching effect of the format where the two worst holes are eliminated coupled with the 2-putt used on sanded greens.  Richard came out on top with Doc, Jack and Joe one point behind tied for second. Doc added to his take with one of the two skins with Kim picking up the second skin. Ludi carded the only on-in-one. 

Aces Wild 3.20
Course:
Altadena

Thu, March 5, 2020

Bob Bowdoin's putting put him in first place for Aces Wild taking 5 strokes off his net 35.  Richard was one behind taking 3 off his net 34. Doc, Vester, Paul and Jim Stowell were tied for third place. Jim was also putting well tied with Bob with a 5 stroke reduction.

Match Play 1.20
Course:
Altadena

Thu, January 23, 2020

We had a fine morning with clear skies and nice warmer weather... a  perfect morning for golf. Most enjoyed this new format where it's nice that when you lose a hole, it doesn't matter by how many strokes, so you just move on to the next hole. You can see in many of the matches there can be a back and forth through the match. 

2 Man Shamble 1.20
Course:
Altadena

Thu, January 16, 2020

De Bell 1.20
Course:
DeBell

Wed, January 15, 2020

Our members arrived this morning wondering why they came in the first place, and may have left feeling the same. But De Bell is an interesting course and I do look forward go playing it again, just not too soon.  Many of us learned to use the new Equitable Stroke Control method of picking up at triple bogey. (That is our club local rule for an otherwise complicated ESC system)

 

Kim led in low gross with  his 91, and Jim Stowell was not that far behind even with lost balls and several hikes up the mountain side. He added a skin and on-in-one to his take.  Vester hung in there for third and posted the other on-in-one.

Wilson 11.19
Course:
Wilson

Tue, November 19, 2019

It was the best of times.   Beautiful morning, lovely grounds, scenic skies, course in pretty good shape, greens were well tended.

It was the worst of times.  Long long course. Fast and tricky greens and quite a few three putts and maybe a couple of 4 putts?

But we had fun, didn't we. Ralph took low net honors with a skin and Don settled for second in low net but added a skin and two on-in-ones. Kim had low gross with Jim Nelson taking second.

Match Play
Course:
Altadena

Thu, October 24, 2019

We only fielded four foursomes today perhaps because of the match play format. It was a beautiful morning to play and we noticed that the greens have recovered nicely from earlier maintenance and most of the fairways are looking.... better than fair.  

 

I think most found the match play interesting and a different focus for playing golf.  There were no all square matches. 

Tri Golf-a-Thon
Course:
Altadena

Thu, October 17, 2019

We managed to play Tri-Golf-a-Thon without a hitch! Scorecards looked great.  It was a close match but Vester and Tom beat the field by two strokes with a net 30. There was a tie for second at 32, with Doc, Harry, Kim and Jim R in the mix and a bunch at 33.

Don and Vester had strong rounds at 40 gross each.

5 Of Clubs 10.19
Course:
Altadena

Thu, October 3, 2019

Today's 5 of clubs saw scores not much above average suggesting that those other 9 clubs are superfluous, but not really right? We were playing up on all the tees because the regular tee boxes were under maintenance. Still there were some pretty good scores. 

 

Charles took low net today topping the leaderboard while Leo added a skin to his second place placing him at the top of payout list.  Ray had enough nice holes to take two skins. Doc took third and added one of the five on-in-ones.

Low Putts/ Low Net
Course:
Altadena

Thu, August 22, 2019

We had a nice turnout today with great weather. The fairways are looking fantastic.  How nice to enjoy such a fine muni course!  From the looks of the scores, I wonder if people were playing for low putts?  Vester had a very reasonable 42 with a bunch of 46's behind him.  Vester wins low gross honors, but Herman takes the money in Low net.  Richard carded the lowest putt count and we're assured there were no gimmes.  Doc was a close second with a bunch tied for third in low  putts.  The skin pool was split between Leo and Jim Rutledge.
