The Oct. 23 Best Ball Fun Day at Pioneers Park yielded some low scores, and while the day started cool, it warmed up nicely and provided great weather for the field of 122 golfers.
Three flights of four-man teams with 11 in A and C and nine in B found the course in good condition and the greens fast, especially on the tricky downhill putts. As would be expected, this format put a premium on higher handicap players utilizing the strokes they received, especially on the more difficult holes.
Pin prizes were awarded to Ed Svensen on hole No. 9 for closest to the pin in two, and to Tom VanDevelder on hole No. 18 for the longest putt. The final Fun Day was supposed to be a mixer event at Holmes, but cold temperatures canceled that.
