Lake Chelan Senior Men’s Golf Division - June 12

CHELAN - The Lake Chelan Senior Men’s Golf Club Members on Wednesday, June 12 held a Field Day at Desert Canyon Golf Resort.  Dr. Darrell Richards, the Field Day Captain arranged for the group to receive  discounted green fees and cart costs along with a lunch special at the Oasis Restaurant.  
All 24 participating Club Members teed off at 8 a.m. with the assistance of a shotgun start.   

Six teams of golfers competed in a “Pink Ball” contest which required each team player to use the pink ball for an entire hole.  The team members then rotated the use of the pink ball for all 18 holes.  Three teams were successful in not losing their pink ball.  Team #6 consisting of Ellis Nierenberg, Dan Dedo, Ed Ferguson and Phil Sifferman were declared the winners of the event by recording the lowest net score while playing the pink ball.  The other team members that finished play without losing their pink balls were Tony Montoya, Lyle Burns, Mike Storey, Scott Patrick, Mark Babcock, Ron Carver, Patrick Sullivan and Phil Stalcup.

The results of the other Field Day Game Competitions are as follows:
Cliff House recorded the Most Net Eagles by posting a Net Double Eagle and an Eagle.  Mark Babcock and George Nickle also scored Net Eagles.  Cliff House was also the winner of the Long Drive Contest on Hole #10.  Stefan Dobratz led the Long Drive Contest prior to Cliff House posting the longest drive of the day.  The winners of the Closest to the Pin Competitions on the Par 3 Holes were Phil Sifferman (13’ 10” – Hole #4), George Nickle (3’ 5” – Hole #8), Ellis Nierenberg (3’ 8” – Hole #14) and Stefan Dobratz (2’ 11” – Hole #16).  In order to win the Closest to the Pin Competitions all four of these golfers had to post at least a Par on the holes.  After play, members from Teams #1-#3 were paired with members from Teams #4-#6 in a Two Man Blind Draw Scoring Contest.  Phil Sifferman and George Nickle won 1st Place, Cliff House and Scott Patrick won 2nd Place, and Ed Holst and Phil Stalcup along with Ed Ferguson and Bob Matson tied for 3rd Place.

The Senior Men’s Golf Club welcomes guests and prospective new members to join the group for play every Wednesday at the Chelan Municipal Golf Course. No advance notice is required.  The Tee Time for the month of June is 8:30 a.m.
