Freeman, George1

October 27, 2016      Congratulations JOHN EVANS-  Winner Match Play

Thanks to David Wood for running the Match Play tournament (twice).  I know we all appreciate his efforts and time spent organizing it and making it happen.  Sam Strite thinks the double elimination idea is a good one--not just for David but for everyone.  

Everyone should know, though, that there is a rumor of a  "Fix" in this last tournament.  Statistically, it was virtually impossible for an "old limey" to win, without help from a biased tournament organizer. Tell me how  the  "old limey" was able to beat Pat Sullivan, Alan Edwards, Adrian (The Champ Bagger) Corral, Sam (Tiger Woods, Jr.) Strite and then the most powerful man at GlenLakes--El Presidente Tom Spangrud.  There is just no way.  By the time you organize the next tournament, the  "old limey" will be nestled away in a rest home.  At least the rest of us will then have a chance.  (I edited the Sam Strite write-up)

Evans, John

October 15, 2016

On October 14th, Jim Lorenz shots his age of 76!  Jim shot a 39 on the Vista and then followed it up with a 37 on the Dunes!  The 37 was the lowest score he has ever shot on the Dunes.   He was playing with Ron Morgan and two guest from Indiana, Eric Miller and Nathan Miller.

Jim shot his age back in July 2015 but at that time he was only 74 and shot a 74!  The older he gets the higher score he can shoot!  When he turns 90 he can shoot a 90 and get it on the website!

Congratulations Jim on the GREAT round!

Lorenz, Jim

September 7, 2016

Well, Vern Moore did it AGAIN!  He was playing Monday September 5th with Lenny’s Group and shot his age!  He was playing Vista / Dunes and shot the 76.    This makes the Fourth one in his life.  I will send out an email to all MGA Members next time he shoots his age.  It is too much trouble putting his MUG SHOT each time one the site.  Also it will be a public service not to have too many pictures of Vern around!!

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.......   Just kidding Vern!  Congratulations!!

Moore, Vern

September 4, 2016

Vern Moore shot his age for the Third Time!  Vern is 76 years old and shot a 38 on the Vista and a 38 on the Dunes for a 76!   He was playing with Mo Menk and Connie Voight on Thursday morning on September 1st.

Way to go VERN...........

Wright, Dan

April 17, 2016

On April 15, Bob Lohr was playing with Don Cook in his Match Play Tournament.   They were on Vista # 6 and Bob was 145 yards out, after hitting a poor second shot.  They saw the ball bounce, but thought it had rolled off the back of the green, because of using his 6 Iron.  They approached the green and sure enough, it was not there.  As Bob was walking past the hole, in a kinda wishful thinking, he glanced at the hole and saw the top of the ball.   Don and Bob were both stunned.   Then on the next hole hitting off the tee (Vista #7),  Bob put it in the middle of the water. Needless to say, they did not talk much about the Eagle after that poor showing....   Bob won his match with Cook and now gets to work on Kenny Whiten!Congratulations Bob on the ONE great shot!

Lohr, Bob

April 16, 2016

Ed Hewitt has EAGLE on Vista #6 on April 15th!  After hitting his drive Ed hit his five wood and ended up  100 yards from the green.  He hit on the green then hit the flag and the went into the hole.   Ed was playing with Jim Mitchell, Vern Moore, Lenny Byzewski and Jimmy Shields.   Not too bad for a 100 yard shot.  On the next hole Ed was over the green on Vista #7 and chipped in for a par!   Go figure!

Ed ended up with an 87 for the round!  Not too bad for an OLD Fart!  Congratulates Ed!

Hewitt, Ed

April 2, 2016

On April 1st,  Mark Thompson, (new GlenLakes Member) had a HOLE-in-ONE!  He was playing on the Lakes Course with Dave Dalzotto.   He was playing the Lakes #7 hole and was 166 yards from the pin located in the back of the green.  The ball hit on the front of the green, took one bounce and rolled approx. 30 feet into the hole.

He used an eight iron for the great shot.  Mark is not in the Men’s HOLE-in-ONE Club and even if he was he only had the one witness Dave Dalzotto.   Congratulations anyway Mark!

Thompson, Mark

March 31, 2016

Playing with the MGA on Tuesday, March 29th, Ed Rigor SHOT HIS AGE!!  He is 75 years old and he shot a 75.  He was playing the Lakes/Lakes but when you consider Ed is a 20 handicap that is one heck of a SCORE!!  Ed took all the money from the MGA and the DewSweepers after the round.

Ed was playing with Danny Phillips, Ron Chema and Dan Wright.

Congratulations Ed on the Great Round!!!

Rigor, Ed

March 16, 2016

Art Carvalho has another HOLE-in-ONE!!!  Playing today on Lakes #7 Art had the ACE from 140 yards.  He used his 5 iron to make the great shot.  There was just one little problem.  He was playing with Bob Axetell and no other witnesses!  :-((   With only one witness it does not count!  He is a member of the HOLE-in-ONE Club but will not join Bob Lind and Jimie Dugall in splitting the $1,560 in the POT.  Don’t feel too sorry for Art because January 25, 2013,  Art had the only ACE for 2013!!  That on shot made him $1,720.   This was Art’s third HOLE-in-ONE!   Congratulations ART anyway!!!

Carvalho, Art

March 7, 2016

On Friday, March 4th,  Bill Buck had a HOLE-in-ONE on Vista #5.  Bill was 159 from the cup and hit his 5 wood.  Bill had a HOlE-in-ONE about ten years ago but he was playing by himself.  On Friday Bill was playing with his wife Diana when he made his second HOLE-in-ONE!  Most of PGA requires two witnesses to a HOLE-in-ONE!  Bill either has two or none!!!  Go Figure!!
Bill and his wife, Diana, are from Michigan and are down for about three months each year.   Congratulations on the great shot!!!     Many golfers have never had one with or without witnesses!!

FLAGS FOR VETERANS :     GlenLakes Golf Club is collecting flags to donate to Hughes Funeral Home in Daphne.  They have requested used/torn American flags to satisfy the demand of veterans who want to be buried/cremated with  a flag at their side.  The funeral home will even come pick them up after we reach a total of 10 so all you have to do is bring your used/torn flag to the Clubhouse and leave it in the box (inside the door to the left).

This is such a great program and such a good way for GlenLakes, and all of us, to give back to our REAL AMERICAN HEROES/HEROINES.

The Alabama Women's 4-Ball (Better Ball Format) Tournament played at Lakewood Golf Club at Point Clear, concluded on Friday, September 25.  It was a two-day tournament with flight seedings done after the first day's results.  No handicaps are used and the whole tournament is gross score.
GlenLakes did itself proud in this tournament as two of our LGA members entered and both won their respective flights.  Laurie Strite, who last week won the GlenLakes LGA Championship, paired up with her longtime friend Lisa Graham from Gulf Shores Golf Club and the two won the First Flight with a score of 78-77 = 155, 4 strokes better than the second place team.
Our other entrant, Diane Hogan, playing with a longtime friend from Dothan shot a consistent 84-85 = 155 to win the Second Flight by only one stroke!  Nerves of steel!
Amazingly, the Championship flight was won by two young girls (13 and 17) from North Alabama who shot--are you ready for this?  They shot 63-60 = 123, 4 strokes better than a very tough second place team of two seasoned veterans.  Remember, that is their GROSS SCORE.  By the way, today,  they missed a birdie putt on the 18th green which would have given them a 59!
For those of you who follow the LPGA and women's golf in general, the young are taking over the sport.  Teenagers are consistently winning on the LPGA tour and the world's number one or number two ranked player (depending on how you measure it) is an 18 year old.  Who said that young people aren't playing golf?

 

Strite, Laurie

Hogan, Diana

Bill Lantis was playing on Dunes #11 last week and hit his ball to the right of the dog leg.  He thought it was out of bounds.  Bill then hit a provisional ball right down the middle of the fairway.  When they looked for his ball it had made it through the Oak Tree on the right IN BOUNDS and was only 120 yards out on the downhill slop.  He hit his  PW onto the green and it went into the cup for an EAGLE.  Vern Moore had a Birdie and lost the hole to Bill.

The shot was witnessed by Vern Moore, Rich Garcia and Larry Morgan.  Way to go Bill!!

The shot was witnessed by Jim Brown, John Melvin and Mike Welsh.

Congratulations Doug!!!!

Harrall, Doug

August 27, 2015

Our new GM David Musial (PGA PRO) had an EAGLE while working on his skills!  After work Wednesday afternoon, August 26th,  David was practicing to keep his Golf Game #1 playing  the Vista Course.  Playing the white tees on Vista #9 he was 115 yards after his drive from the green.  He hit a Wedge and it went into the HOLE!  His only statement was since he was playing by himself he is glad it was not a HOLE-in-ONE since there was no witnesses!!  As you can see even if you are great player you still need to PRACTICE and keep up your Golfing skills........  Anyone need a lesson ??    (251-955-1220)

THANK YOU DAVID MUSIAL

On May 18th, Sam Strite took his first lesson from David Musial as part of the 3-lesson package currently being offered.  Sam's game has been deteriorating at a rapid rate in the last few years so he decided enough was enough.  David wasn't horrified by Sam's swing but did make some constructive changes.  He told Sam to practice the new swing 25 times a day and to not bring it to the course until he had it  "grooved."

On Saturday, May 30th, playing in the MGA with Connie Voight, Mike Phelps and Danny Phillips the group started on number 16.  As Sam approached the tee box on number 14, after playing 16 holes, he was 3 over par.  He knew that he had a great round going and also knew that he needed a par and a bogey on 14/15 in order to shoot his age.  He got the bogey on 14 and now the pressure mounted.  On 15, he hit a poor second shot but rallied with a punch shot that rolled up on the green, about 10' short of the pin.  He lined up the putt but it came up short--another bogey, giving him a 77.  Oh well, being 76 and shooting a 77 is not bad--maybe next time! 

If you think your game is gone and hopeless, don't give up.  Give our new pro, David Musial, the chance to bring the  "old you" back on the course.  Sam is mighty glad that he did!  And, he has two more lessons to go!

Strite, Sam

May 13, 2015

ON Tuesday’s MGA Event Tom Hallberg had a great roung!!  Tom Hallberg started out on Dunes 18 with a par.  Three and a half hours later, Tom hit the green on 17 and two putted for a par.  The amazing thing is that in between, Tom had 16 straight pars, including at least one sand save and three chips and one putts.  I don't know how rare a round of 18 consecutive pars is but no one in the group ever remembered seeing such a feat in amateur nor in professional golf.  Quite a day for Tom and not only did he accomplish a remarkable feat but he also won the A flight, front and back.  Now that is quality golf at its finest.

Tom was playing with Wayne Foster, Pete Mitchell and Sam Strite.

Hallberg, Tom

April 30, 2015

On Wednesday afternoon, Ed Rigor had an EAGLE.  Certain Eagles are better than others since this one was on Dunes #11!!!  After his tee shot,  Ed was 160 yards from the green.  After his next shot the ball was on the way to the green.  Everyone lost site of the ball.   When they got to the green they had a hard time finding the ball.   They then looked in the cup and there it was!  In the hole for the EAGLE!

Ed was playing with Jon and Diane Hogan.  Congratulations Ed!

Rigor, Ed

April 9, 2015

Playing the Vista #5 on Saturday afternoon by himself Bryan Ussery had a HOLE-in-ONE!  Bryan lives  on Dundee Circle in Carnoustie Gardens here at GlenLakes.  He is a member of the GlenLakes Club but not a member of the Men’s Association or the Men’s HOLE-in-ONE Club.

He was playing Vista #5 from 168 yards and hit his 5 iron.  The only problem is with no witnesses around it doesn't count as an official Hole-in-One.  This was the first one he has made!  He works with the Government full time in Pensacola and does not have time to play much golf.   Anyway you look at it “Congratulations” maybe next time you will have two witnesses!!!

We have a new DISTANCE SIGN on the back of the Range Ball Shed.  Bill McKay is going to exchanging the sign each time the tee markers are moved.  We have four signs for the lower tees and five signs for the upper tee area.   The distances are correct from the center of the tee box.  From left and right of center they will be off a couple of yards

If you happen to see the yardage way off please let Bill McKay know or give Jerry DuBose a call on his cell at 978-3069.

New Sign on Shed

On Saturday, May 18th,  Jamie Dugal made a HOLE-in-ONE!   He was playing the Vista #3 and with his 6 iron made the shot.  Jamie was playing with Jim Lorenz at their very early tee time as usual.  Ron Morgan was supervising his new roof job and Dan Gormley was up in Illinois. 

Jamie is in the HOLE-in-ONE Club but one rule is that you have to have two witnesses.  I know of several golfers that did not join because they only play most of the time as twosomes. 

Congratulations Jamie and Ron Morgan and Dan Gormley needs to buy drinks!!!

Several players witnessed something  during MGA Saturday play that is worthy!  After playing his average game for the first three holes on the Vista.  Bob Boosveld teed off on number Vista 4.  His tee shot was less that his average and his second shot was short.  Bob hit his third shot just right of the right green side bunker.  He chipped his fourth shot over the bunker to a back side pin,  the ball took two hops then rolled into the middle of the hole and salvaged his par in pure Phil Mickelson fashion.  His confidence soaring, he teed off on the par three fifth hole.  His tee shot fell short and left of the green.  With renewed confidence in his short game although unable to see the pin, Bob chipped his ball over the hill on the left of the green.  He landed the ball perfectly on the downhill slope with just the right speed.  Dead on line, the ball rolled, once again, dead center for a birdie.  Although Bob couldn’t see the ball go in, his playing partners all yelled and the smile on Bob’s face was as they say, PRICELESS!  Bob ended his day with two birdies, better than anyone else in the foursome.

On Wednesday playing with the Wednesday Warriors, new MGA Member Richard Decker had a HOLE-in-ONE!  He made the ACE on Vista #3.  He was about 150 yards out when the great shot was made.  This was Richards second HOLE-in-ONE.  He made his last one over 25 years ago.  He was playing in a five some with Ted Dupre, Tony Crawford, George Gonzalez and Dez Powell.

Richard did get $50 from the MGA for the Bar Bill but had not joined the $1,960 Men’s HOLE-in-ONE Pot.  That means Bob Lind is still the only one  this year to get the pot.

Congratulations Richard!

Ken Duncan long time resident of GlenLakes and now over at Lakewood Golf Course had his 79th Birthday on Wednesday.  For the past 10 or 15 years a group of about 6 couples go to Valarta’s Mexican Restaurant every Wednesday night.  Ken ended up getting cake in the face with the help of Jim Syphurs (owner of Jim’s Golf Cart).

Over the years they have probably consumed over 500 gallons of Margarita!  Happy Birthday Ken hope next year when you hit the big 80 you invite all of GlenLakes for some FREE Margarita!

On November 30th during the Saturday MGA Tournament Jim Brown had a HOLE-in-ONE on Vista #3.  Last year Jim had a hole in one and this year ANOTHER ONE!  He was playing Vista #3 when he made the one this year.  Playing with Jim was Kenny Whiten, Jorge Gonzalez and Gene Voelk.

Since Jim was not in the separate HOLE-in-ONE Club, he will not share with Art Carvalho half of the $1,720 in the pot.

Congratulations Jim on the HOLE-in-ONE!!!

Merlene and Jerry DuBose played in the Auburn/Opelika AL, Robert Trent Jones Golf Digest Tournament October 2 / 3rd.  They ended up in Second Place with a winning of $310 in Certificates!  The first day was a Best Ball and Merlene used 11 of her scores and Jerry used 3 of his.  They tied scores on the other four holes.  After a night of Merlene telling Jerry how bad he played he came through on Sunday’s round.  They ended up in Second Place due to Jerry’s GREAT PLAY during the scramble round.

Congratulations to Jerry DuBose with a little help from Merlene DuBose for the 2nd Place win!!!
