It is rare at the end of July that a Fun Day experiences 80 degree weather, no wind, intermittent breezes and sun, but the July 23 Shamble saw just that along with a Woodland Hills course in stellar condition.
The format allowed each group to use the best drive. Then each member played his own ball utilizing 60 percent of his league handicap. One best net score was used on the par 3s, two on the 4s and three on the 5s.
The top score for the 88 participants was a 110, which won both the red and white flights. As has become a tradition, players were able to purchase burgers for lunch cooked by owner Todd Flodman himself. There were pin prizes on No. 6 for closest to the pin with the tee shot and No. 18 for longest putt, with Gary McCown and Jerry Edmunds winning those, respectively. The league’s next Fun Day was a mixer July 30 at Iron Horse.
