With the kind of heat Nebraska has been enduring in recent weeks, it was nice for the Lincoln Senior Men's Golf League to get a break in the wooded scenery of the Platteview Golf Club July 1.
The course was in great shape, and the slight breeze made for a pleasant day, but the fairways were still tight and accuracy was a necessity. Teams were divided into four-person groups in the three flights with a total of 128 golfers for the Scramble event.
Scores were very similar to 2018, so it appears the LSMGL group has adjusted to the demands of this challenging course. No other layout the group plays has these kinds of hills, valleys, water and trees. Jerry Petersen won the pin prize for closest second shot on No. 9, and Dean Muller won closest to the pin on No. 8. The next Fun Day event will be July 22 at Woodland Hills.
