Around the Club

The US Curling Championship for seniors was held in Portage, WI with 19 teams from all over the country. Nils Johansson’s (far right) team went 8 and 0. Nils played every match (only 4 of the 5 players shown in the picture play in a game). There will be at least 20 teams from all over the world participating in the World championship in Dumfries, Scotland. Congratulations and good luck Mr. Johansson!

Hole in One - Are You Covered?

We have seen a half-dozen holes in one over the last couple weeks. Have you joined the Hole in One Club?

There is an initial fee of $5.00 and an additional $5.00 is charged whenever the fund needs to be replenished. When a Hole in One is made, the Golf Shop staff will notify Accounting and $500 will be credited to the member’s account to be used at their discretion, within 30 days.

Two Feats in One

On January 22nd during the Solheim Cup, Carol Colton aced # 7 on the South Course for a DoubleEagle AND a hole in one! Watching in awe were Pat McTavish, Cindy Smith and Bette Fredericks. Very Well done Mrs. Colton!!

Last to First in 4.2 Seconds Joan McHugh was playing with Carol Colton, who one week prior, had a hole in one during the Solheim Cup. They were taking pictures because no one had a camera before. They arrive at the next tee and Mrs. McHugh comments how ‘she does not like this hole’ (#8 - South Course). Well, she might now because she holed it out for an ace!! Also witnessing were husbands Don Colton and Michael McHugh. 14000 Dove Mountain Blvd. • Marana, AZ • 85658 • (520) 744-2555

Golf ‘Course Record’

“Don Colton was with me yesterday and took this picture on the 7th green North. Also with us was Ed Joyce and Steve Stuebner. The 171 yard shot was a “beautiful” sweeping hook with my 7 iron that started on the right side of the green and came back all the way over to the left side. While it was fun to get a hole in one (#3 for me), more memorable was the fact that I probably shot a course record. On the scorecard was an 8, a 7, a 6, a 5, a 4, a 3, a 2 and a 1. Is there some sort of fancy trophy for that?” Cheers. John Beamish We LOVED the story Mr. Beamish! Congratulations on your third hole in one!

Team Support Pays Off Alan Rothberg only took one shot on #14 of the South Course from 155 yards out using a 6 iron. Witnesses were Ed Joyce, Guy Shoemaker, and Wanasa Zhou from the U of A Girl’s Golf Team during UA Girl’s Golf Team Fundraiser. Well-done Doctor!
