Beauty Bay Golf Course, Senior Men’s League, June 13, 2023

Another fine day was had at Beauty Bay Golf Course by the senior men’s league. Our group today consisted of 65 members and 5 guests. The round was followed by a gathering in the clubhouse enjoying brats and a beverage to honor the fathers in our league

Asked, by show of hands, how many were fathers, a large majority raised their arms in gleeful acknowledgment. Grandfather representation was also high and even a great grandfather was on hand! It is important to point out that the few nonfathers were still allowed to indulge in the food fare but had to pay regular price. Just kidding! A big thank you to Beauty Bay for discounting their prices for our little celebration.

Here’s going back a few years… In days of yore Beauty Bay leagues had coordinated trips to various other courses. Locations included Oakwood, Granite Hills, Pinawa, and River Oaks. One such trip, this time to Buffalo Point in 2005, produced more memories than expected. At first glance, the picture on the left below just looks like a bunch of folks that decided to get out of their bus and take a picture. Look a little closer and you might wonder why the bus is canting so severely to the right. Turns out that an oncoming tractor trailer was borrowing too much of the road. Ray Howard had this picture in his archives. Here’s his description: “Most people got out of the bus by the window behind the driver. Some others by a window further back. The door of the bus was already under water. The only thing that stopped the bus from turning over was the weight of the golf clubs.” The group arrived at Buffalo Point five hours late. Although a few of the golfers were somewhat traumatized by what had transpired, they persevered, and got their round of golf in.

You know, we should do trips like that again. Maybe skip the tow truck!

Results for the league on June 13 are as follows:

Back nine scramble winners were Dave Schott, Jim Beaman, Marvin Koski, and Brian Jones with a -3 score of 32. They won on a countback with a birdie on 18 against three other teams. Congratulations! By the way folks, it takes magical powers to birdie 18. Better check their golf bag for a magic wand!
