Valley golf news

Golf updates for the Fairmont Mountainside Men’s Club and the Windermere Valley Ladies Golf Club.


Fairmont Mountainside Men’s Club

On a very cool and rainy May 2, the pair of Bill Bergman and Howard Stafford won handily in a two men, one best net competition. However, on May 2, Ed Taillieu, arriving uncustomarily late, was able to wave his magic hand in selecting three blind partners and voila, won our “sixes” team competition to the amazed chagrin of the rest of us. His ghost team included Bill, Kirk Dawson and guest Terry Lemarca. A suppressed well done!

On a sunny warm May 16, the team of John Selzler, Steve Scheult, Paul Barrett and John Denhamer (yes, he’s back!) won our four men, two best net competition. Over the course of these three membership competitions, closest to the pin awards went to Martin Hacker (four times!), Dan Wasylyk (twice), Paul, Howard, Terry, Steve, Dave Gibson and Scott Powell. Deuces were rolled in by Martin, Dave, Paul, Bill Bergman, Bill DesBrisay, Wayne Geiger, Tom Gerald and Brent Dougherty.
