Two nights ago, I played my last Men’s Night of 2019. Given the cold temperatures and lack of light, the sad day of had arrived for me. Although there is one more night left (next Wednesday) at Osprey Links, alas I cannot make it. I am in the middle of a move and cannot spare the time!
This year’s strings of Men’s Nights were very successful. We played many a crazy game mixed into some traditional events. The food was great and company always fun. Jeff and his team, as always, provided a great atmosphere for camaraderie and competition. Overall, I would declare this year’s events a huge success.
If you have never played in a Men’s Night, I recommend you find a local course that hosts these type of events and give it a try. For those business minded, it is a great networking tool; for those who like to meet new golfers, then this is the place to be; if you like competition, then how can you lose. Men’s Night is great fun worth the experience.
During this year we expanded our team for Blair, Rick and I, to include Murray. I have mentioned him before and was a great addition to our team. His booming drives and smooth putting (well at least last Wednesday his putting was excellent) rounds out our team very well. He has already asked about playing with us next year and we agree that this is a great idea.
Last Wednesday, we won B Flight with a 3 under on the front nine at Osprey Links. It was very cold and windy, but we managed to play bogey free in a four man scramble. Our challenge is that we could not get close to the hole. The three birdies we had were the closest approach shots we had and converted. The other six holes were no closer than 30 feet. Although we burned the hole a fair bit, we could not convert on those holes.
Being the first team finished, we went into the club house to wait for supper. It was delicious as usual and very filling. The peppered steak was very flavorful and a great meal for the end of Men’s Night season.
Finally, I want to thank Jeff and his team for the great customer service during Men’s Night. It is a challenge to process 100 players, feed them, and give out prizes in a short time. Yet each week, his team is ready with a smile and helping hand to make our time at the course fun and rewarding.
Well, now I have to wait 7 months for the next Men’s Night. I am not sure what I am going to do with my Wednesday nights. Not to worry, I am sure I will find something.
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
