THURSDAY NIGHT MEN’S TWILIGHT NEWS
 
Smiths Falls Kia was behind the wheel of the June 18 edition of the SFG&CC’s Thursday Night Men’s Twilight with a great prize table and a great format. The game was Twilight best ball in which the best tee shot of the group is chosen and each member of the group plays his own ball from there, finishing the hole with an individual score, with the best individual score going on the card. It’s a great mix of team work and individual play.

On the front side, the threesome of Dave McKenney, Steve James, and Rod Hunt played over their heads, posting the low score of the evening. Twilight committee members Rocky, Tommy, Drummy, Brussy, and Rob Crogie earned back nine honors, proving they don’t just run a good game, they play one too.
The Roosteraunt closest to the pin prizes went to Dave McKenney and Tom Henderson for their tee shots on holes 3 and 14.

Rod Hunt and Mike Milks hit their approach shots tight on holes 4 and 15, earning them the Burns’ Jewelers gift certificates.

The Town and Country Chrysler longest drives of the night were launched by Mike McKenney and Jordan Winter on holes 5 and 17.

Mick Wilkinson was the lucky 50/50 prize winner, Art Rent won the bottle draw, and Kevin Hewitt along with Gerry Simmons took home some merchandise from the pro shop.

Finally, Bob James was awarded a Rocky’s Road Rash ball and will take to the tee on 18 for a shot at the big prize to kick off the Closing in September. My money’s on Bob.

Last week’s Obsessed with Golf trivia question: Where did Arnold Palmer make his last official start as a competitive golfer in 2006? Answer: B. Administaff Small Business Classic.

THURSDAY NIGHT MEN’S TWILIGHT NEWS
 
Sponsorship of the June 4 edition of SFG&CC’s Thursday Night Men’s Twilight was a team effort by our friends at New Horizons Communications and Century 21. Twice the sponsors meant twice the prizes and everyone went home happy.
It was a variation on the “gamble scramble” format whereby each member of the group teed off and a die was rolled to see whose shot would be taken. Sometimes you hit your second shot from the fairway, sometimes from the trees; it all depended on the roll.
The team of Mike Ross, Dennis Koluk, Craig McDonald, and Bob Mulrooney played and rolled well, claiming victory on the front nine. Equally good (or lucky) were Matt Wallace, Pat Bulley, Bill Ballantyne, Mike Milks, Rick Thompson, and David Kayser (aka King of the 20 boards). They took the honors on the back side.
The Roosteraunt closest to the pin prizes went to Rob Garvin and Rick Thompson for their tee shots on holes 3 and 16.
John McKenney and Justin Jennings took home the Burns’ Jewelers gift certificates for the best second shots on holes 9 and 10.
The long balls of the night were pounded by Steven Blair and Matt Wallace on holes 1 and 11, earning them the Town and Country Chrysler longest drive prizes.
Don Ross was the lucky 50/50 prize winner, John McKenney won the bottle draw, and the pro shop prizes went to Rick Thompson and Garth “hey buddy” Hannah.
Finally, Rodney Parent earned a Rocky’s Road Rash ball giving him a chance to win the Hunt and Dopson hole in one prize at the Closing. He’s already practicing.
Last week’s Obsessed with Golf trivia question: Which of these players is a two-time winner of the World Championship of Golf? Answer: A. Ben Hogan
This week’s question: Outside of Bobby Jones, who was the only other British Amateur champion to win a U.S. Open?
A.    Walter Travis
B.     Lawson Little
C.     Jess Sweetser
D.    Frank Stranahan

THURSDAY NIGHT MEN’S TWILIGHT NEWS
 
Rob Roy’s Pub was the generous sponsor of the May 28 edition of the SFG&CC’s Thursday Night Men’s Twilight and, as usual, gave away a ton of prizes.
Although “scramble and pink ball” might sound like an unusually painful communicable disease, it was actually the format for the evening. While the rest of the team chose the best shot and advanced through the hole, one member of the group had to play the pink ball from tee to green and (hopefully) not lose it. At the end of the night, teams had a scramble score and, if they were lucky, a pink ball score. Not many pink balls made it back to the clubhouse. 
The team of Ed Garrett, Craig Wylie, T.J. Wylie, Mick Wilkinson, Steve Anderson, and Scott Wilkinson kept their pink ball alive and cruised to a front nine victory.
On the back side, Graham Merpaw, Colin Brown, Mike Patti, Billy Crawford, and Rico Dopson also managed both games well, earning them the night’s honors.
The Roosteraunt closest to the pin prizes went to Dan Imbeau and “Steady Steve” Hull for their excellent tee shots on holes 8 and 14.
Jerry Edwards and Matt Wallace took home the Burns’ Jewelers bling for the best approach shots on holes 6 and 17. Jeannie’s going to love her new earrings, Matt.
The Town & Country Chrysler longest drives were sent into orbit by Greg “Champ” Hull and Mike Donovan on holes 9 and 17.
Chris Cullen was the lucky 50/50 draw winner and Jeff Smail won the bottle draw, while the pro shop prizes went to Dan Cyr, Eric Maitland, and Ron Bernicky.
And finally, John McKenney won a Rocky’s Road Rash ball and a chance to win the Hunt and Dopson prize at the Closing. I would advise you not to park your car close to the pond on 18 that day or you may be talking to Rod and Rob about a claim.

THURSDAY NIGHT MEN’S TWILIGHT NEWS 

 

The May 14 edition of the SFG&CC’s Thursday Night Men’s Twilight was sponsored by our friends at ServiceMaster. The weather was perfect, the prize table was full, and the three man scramble format made for a great night of golf.  

Experience matters, and no group had more of it than Bruno Patti, Bob James, and Don Ross. Rumor has it Bob James helped build Noah’s Ark, in charge of sanding. He and his partners showed a lot of grit on the golf course too, cruising to a win on the front nine.  

If grit’s important, so is heart. In fact, the winning threesome on the back nine had two of them (minus the “e”): Doug and Hank. Along with George Thomson, they “beat” back the competition to claim victory. 

The Roosteraunt closest to the pin prizes went to Bob James and Rocky for their tee shots on holes 8 and 16. Rod Cook and Garth Hannah won the Burns’ Jewelers gift certificates for the best approach shots on holes 4 and 12. 

The Town and Country Chrysler longest drives were launched by Mike Milks and “Tricky Nicky” Vaillancourt on holes 6 and 13. Scott Devonshire was the lucky 50/50 prize winner, and Billy Crawford won the bottle draw.  

Finally, the pro shop prize winners were Norm Devine and Greg “Champ” Hull, while Rob Dales will be a Rocky’s Road Rash competitor at the Closing.  

If you haven’t played with us in a while, or if you’re new to the area and looking for a fun night of golf with the guys, a special Twilight discount is being offered just for you. Come on out and enjoy the best men’s night in Eastern Ontario!

THURSDAY NIGHT MEN’S TWILIGHT NEWS
 
The first Thursday Night Men’s Twilight of the year at Smiths Falls Golf and Country Club can be described in one word: BIG. A big turnout. A big prize table offered up by Goldie Dixit, dentist extraordinaire. And big changes to the club, including a more streamlined head table that the patrons loved. It all made for a night of big fun!
The scramble format offered players a chance to shake off the rust and cobwebs without feeling too much pressure on their first night out. The Staples, Coleman, Rent, Francis, Sanderson, and Strickland group was already well oiled, cruising smoothly to a front nine victory. The Mulrooneys, along with Ross, Koluk, and Hillier, claimed the back nine honors.
The Roosteraunt closest to the pin prizes went to Goldie Dixit and Bob Mulrooney for their tee shots on holes 3 and 14. Goldie didn’t even remember hitting the shot; must have inhaled a little too much nitrous oxide.
Rico Dopson proved he’s more than just a long hitter. Along with Dan Cyr, he took home the Burns’ Jewelers gift certificates for the best second shots on holes 2 and 10. And speaking of long, perennial driving champion, Ray Blair, was at it again on hole number 5. Along with Ben Mulrooney who flexed his muscles on hole number 11, Ray was awarded yet another Town and Country Chrysler longest drive prize.
Norm Devine was the lucky 50/50 prize winner, Wayne Palmer won the bottle draw, and the pro shop prizes went to Brandon Hart, Justin Jennings, and Claire Sanderson.
Finally, Dennis Durant won a nice new golf bag and Al Pilon wanted to take a bow after finding out he was this week’s winner of Rocky’s Road Rash.
If you haven’t played with us in a while, or if you’re new to the area and looking for a fun night of golf with the guys, a special Twilight discount is being offered just for you. Come on out and enjoy the best men’s night in Eastern Ontario!
