A Great Kimball Golf Weekend


What a great golf weekend at the Four Winds Golf Course this past Saturday-Sunday. Amazing the number of people that turn out for this annual golfing attraction, not only in the number of 3-man teams, which ended up at 35 when one team did not show, but also in the number of people who come out to follow their favorite teams, both days! 

This year the weather was near-perfect both days, and the course was groomed to Perfection. I heard so many positive comments on the Kimball course. It is so gratifying to see the number of all-family teams entered.

Team Mates Tournament

More tournament golf this weekend at the Four Winds with the annual local chapter Team Mates tournament set for Saturday, June 27. This is a 4-person scramble format at a cost of $60 per person giving you golfers an opportunity to help out a great program. All golfers will be fed at the trap shoot building prior to the 1 p.m. shotgun start. Registration and lunch will begin around 11:30. All golfers will also receive a registration gift and a chance at winning prizes and several whole flag prizes. Call The Four Winds Pro Shop today and get signed in. That number is 308-235-4241.

Vince’s Corner Tournament

Yet another huge tournament at the Four Winds is upcoming in early July and we are referring to the Vince’s Corner tournament, which also brings home many former Kimball residents, and this is two day event is very popular. It usually is filled up quite early but you can call Henry Heeg at Vince’s Corner, or the Four Winds Pro Shop and get your name on the list.

Better With Age

Another golf happening to report. Charley Carlson recorded a hole-in-one on June 17 at the Four Winds. He aced whole number 6 with a 7 iron. I know Gary Hall was in his group. This is nothing new for 85 year old Charley as this was his fourth hole in one!

High School Sports

Happy to report that more things are opening up in regards to our High School sports. The NSAA has now given permission for almost all high school sports to have workouts, play in leagues etc. including basketball, football, wrestling.

Kimball High volleyball coach Jeri Ferguson said, “We have had some open gyms and so far the turnout has been very good. The effort and atmosphere has been energizing and I think everyone is excited to just be able to get into the gym again. It has been exciting for me to see the turnout in the weight room as well” she said.

The summer schedule for volleyball and basketball shows the weight room is open Monday through Thursday at 6 p.m. except on Tuesdays it is 7 p.m.. basketball open gyms are Tuesday nights 6 to 7 and volleyball on Thursday nights 5 to 6. The Kimball High volleyball team is hoping to go to a team camp in Seward on July 15 and is having a home Camp July 31. Jaclyn Burks, Kimball’s new girl’s head coach, is taking her team to camp in Broken Bow on July 9 and is having a home camp on July 25.

Kimball High will have two new head coaches this upcoming year for basketball with Burks with the girls program and Chad Miller has been hired to take over the Kimball High boys program.

Youth Baseball, Softball Leagues

A reminder that the youth baseball/softball leagues are underway and you can catch games every night Monday through Thursday and then watch adult softball on Friday nights. Fun at the Kimball ball parks.
