First week of Men's League Results!
Neal Holmes walks away with week 1 honors. In a effort to grow this new league, combined with not enough USGA handicaps established yet, we went with a Blind Bogey format. 16 players entered the first week. We certainly hope it will grow. Neal shot a net 65 to win $64.00 Second place to Greg Jones ($48), then Pete Mills ($32) and last money went to Dave Farrell ($16.)
There were 9 skins out. Bob Sparks (1), Pete Mills (2), Steve Turner (1), Dave Farrell (2) and john Humphries (1). Each skin was worth $1.75. $19.75 remains to start the skin pot for next week.
Thanks to all who played. The league is growing.
Where Golfers Feel at Home with Their Game
We like to think that Sandy Creek Golf Course is the Tri-State's most golfer friendly course. It is a place where you can have a great time, pay a fair price and not spend the entire day traveling around our 18 holes. But more, this is a place where you will get a warm welcome and the ultimate in friendly service from our staff.
Although our layout is shorter than some local courses, plenty of excitement awaits you out here at Sandy Creek. We are bordered by the East Fork of the Little Sandy River. So get ready for some adventures with water. The greens are small and sometimes sneaky. Even when some of the best local amateurs have held tournaments here, low scoring was at a minimum. Just when you think you have got a birdie going, you may have to think again. So get ready to exercise your best strategy and accuracy or you will be replaying favorite holes in your mind for hours.
This is also a course where beginners can find their game and grow to love golf with a passion. We have poured energy into introducing youngsters and all members of the family to our great game. No matter what your skills, we invite you to come out and give our course a try. Ask about our lesson plans as well.
Are you looking for a place to simply spend a calm summer evening working on your game? Do you like the idea of a steady competition against your buddies? Do you have children you are eager to spend some time with? Those are some of the things we see happen here at Sandy Creek. We pride ourselves in attracting golfers for their different reasons. It is not uncommon to hear from our customers they recognize there are other places they could play, but they "just like it here". As Ron Charles from Dallas, Texas told us;
"...this is the best value I have ever had playing golf."
