Men’s Night
July 31st saw a record turnout enjoy the conditions at BlackHorse for the 13th Men’s Night of the year. 
Scoring was tough, but that just makes the game more interesting. One of the highlights was a great eagle by Rob Liddle on the 4th hole – a par 4. Glen Chaput and Kent Schaefer tied in “A” flight with 20 points. Rick Hodgson and Bob Ogilvie had the skins. Cory Zettler and Dave Plourde tied in “B” with 21 points. They shared the skins with Tom Pegg. “C” flight was won by Rob Liddle with 22 points and Bryan Astles was close behind with 21. Rob and Bryan had skins along with Evan Rivett and Ray Guay.

July 24th was another great day to enjoy on the golf course and there were plenty of guys taking advantage of the conditions at BlackHorse for their 12th men’s night of the year. After their golf, they were able to sit down to a full steak dinner and brag about their golf games. Three of them shot even par for the 9 holes, Rick Hodgson, Glen Chaput and Matt Aubrey. Glen Chaput won “A” flight with 23 points and also picked up a skin. Rick Hodgson was second with 22. Bob Parks and Doug Wilson had the other skins in “A”.

Dwight Leslie and Mike Kittel, winning with a score of minus 7.
July 17th was our 11th Men’s night of the year, and we had a record turnout. Humidity levels were down and it was a good day to be on the golf course.
