Over the Hill gang hosts a poker party
July 4, 2019
Call it a poker party played on the fairways and greens, and only very rarely from the bunkers and trees.
The Over the Hill gang decided to play a friendly game of golf poker to usher in the week Monday morning at sunny River's Bend.
Using their scorecards instead of playing cards, players would then put together their scores from each hole to arrive at their hand to be played.
Playing the hands they arrived at best, Charlie Hooten won high hand honors, John Pritzkau finished second and Don Hansen third. In the low hand category, Gary Thompson won out, Lana Nolen was second and Ron Sharp third.
In other Hill highlights, Rick Kendall carded a 41 for men's low gross honors, Don Hansen shot the men's low net, and Liz Morkert shot 40 for women's low net.
In individual hole play, Kendall was closest to the pin in 2 on No. 10 and knocked in the long putt on No. 17, Mike Gillmore put the rush on the long putt on No. 11, Mike Normandin earned long putt honors on No. 12 and hit the men's long drive on No. 18, Sharp shooed in the long putt on No. 13, Larry Eddy was closest to the pin off the tee on No. 14, Doug Deck hit the long drive on No. 15, Rusty Haggard converted the long putt on No. 15, Sam Bernhardt made the long putt on No. 16, and Ron Beaty dumped in the long putt on No. 18.
Bernhardt and Beaty both knocked down chip-in shots on No. 10 and Deck got one down on No. 16.
Weather permitting and bodies willing, the Over the Hill players will again gather at the Bend for another round of fun in the sun next Monday morning.
