Weekly TeeBird Report Weibring End of Season Scramble & Luncheon: 22 September 2022
Twenty-four TeeBird golfers were treated to a taste of Fall weather. It was a sunny morning but felt a bit nippy with temps in the mid 50’s. Wayne Lockwood was ready to get us STARTED with the 9 am Shotgun start. Thanks, Wayne. In addition to the foursome Scramble, Hank C had set up 9 challenges for the 9 holes. The helpful STAFF at Weibring set out the markers for the challenges. Tom and Max, you are appreciated for your help all season! Thank You!
