It has been a number of years since the Lincoln Senior Men's Golf League has golfed at Indian Creek in Elkhorn. That was mostly due to the mowing schedule and hesitancy by the league to have members drive in rush-hour traffic. Once those issues were ironed out, and many members requested to see it on the schedule, the return for Sept. 18 came to fruition. The full field of 128 golfers was divided into three flights using a Shamble format.
The Red Feather and Black Bird nines provided an easier nine and a more difficult nine for the seniors. The course was in great shape, and while the greens were not as fast as some anticipated, the pin placements and undulating greens provided ample challenges for the group. Pin prizes were awarded on hole 7 for longest putt and hole 5 for closest pin shot with Randy Stubbs and Pat Kappes winning those, respectively.
