Jock Talk


June 14, 2018

One of the bigger event weekends of the golf season has arrived with the annual Father’s Day Classic 3-person scramble to be held this weekend at the Four Winds Golf Course. This is your last chance to sign up your team for play this Saturday and Sunday.

The format calls for a shotgun start of 12 noon on Saturday, followed by an evening meal at the Windbreak Restaurant of “Chef’s Choice”. Play on Sunday begins at 9 a.m. Your $100 entry fee gets you two days of golf, entry into the skins game and the Saturday evening meal. There will be a chance to buy-in for additional Day Monday.

A Hole-In-One prize is again being donated by Mike Winstrom and his staff at Panhandle Auto. This tournament was started some 50 plus years ago by members of the former Kimball Country Club, and is now organized by the Thursday night men’s league. No handicap is needed as flights are determined from the first day’s scores. There will be 9 flag prizes each day. Call the Four Winds Pro Shop today at 235-4241 and get your team registered.
