Great weather and course conditions made for a wonderful day Aug. 23 at both Highlands and Mahoney courses as the Lincoln Senior Men's Golf League wrapped up its 2017 league play.
This split Fun Day allowed a record 225 league members to enjoy the drop out scramble format that preceded the yearly meeting to announce league division winners as well as elect officers. Red, white, and blue flights were played at Highlands; green, yellow, and orange were at Mahoney.
Pin prizes were awarded at Highlands on holes 9 and 18. Rob James was closest to the pin and Ed Svensen had the longest putt on those respective holes. Mahoney also had pin prizes on holes 9 and 18 with Gary Wells making the longest putt, and Larry Younger closest to the pin on those respective holes.
Officers for the coming year were re-elected with Bill Allen-president; Dean Bergman-vice president; Dave Pauling-treasurer; and Glen Schmieding-secretary. New and old business was discussed and division winners were recognized as hamburgers were enjoyed. The league's Fall Fun Days began Wednesday (Aug. 30) at Tiburon Golf Course in Omaha.
