Some of the Ramsden Flight winners.
The Carlson Flight winners.
Posted by Men's Golf Club
On a brisk Saturday, Nov. 17, 72 hearty Men’s Club Pilgrims took to the North Course in search of this illustrious bird. This year’s format, designed by co-chairmen John Friedrich and DJ Milligan, was received to rave reviews. This year the turkey ball was chosen by team members after all players had hit, and the other three players then played a scramble from a ball they chose. All scoring was at net. Also, many of us elderly “gophers” played the Silver tees. Handicaps were then adjusted. There was less pressure on players than previous years. “Winner-Winner Turkey Dinner.” The results:
