With three events remaining in the Atigun Cup - a season-long points race which encompasses eight golf tournaments - Greg Harrington and Jesse Wade have taken commanding leads. In the Gross Division, Harrington has 70 points.
On a cool, rainy day on the Kenai Golf Course, Gilbert Arellano shot one of the lowest scores in recent Kenai Golf Course history. On July 12, with the rain coming and going all day at the KGA Shootout, Gilbert shot an even par 72. Great job, Gilbert.
The Memorial Golf Tournament is an important event at the Kenai Golf Course. This is a time when we pause to honor and remember those who have been an important part of our golf course. It was fun to retell old stories this past week.
I would like to thank Rich Edwards for putting together an outstanding Red, White, and Blue Tournament for the Fourth of July! Doug Jung, thanks for providing morning snacks. I need to set the stage. Going in to the last hole which was No.
The Kenai Golf Course is up and running with the earliest start date ever. We opened the front nine on April 19. Currently the entire course is open with carts. The only temporary green is No. 14. That green is still about a week away from being ready.
Lara Griffin and Greg Harrington won the Dick and Shirley Morgan Kickoff Tournament at the Kenai Golf Course on Saturday. Greg won low gross in a playoff with Todd Eskelin. Greg won on the third playoff hole. Both golfers shot a 78. Great job guys.
Rain followed by sunshine! What a great combination of weather! The Kenai Golf Course is in great shape for this time of year. We are on all 18 greens. This is the earliest we have ever been on the 14th green and it is in very good condition.
The rain we have had after a month of 70 degree weather has, indeed, been welcome. The course is looking great and the greens and tee boxes are in wonderful shape. The fairways are still running out faster than normal which helps many of us old guys.
What a week we have had at the Kenai Golf Course Ladies' Clinics, Junior Clinics, the Elks Tournament and the KGA Tournament. Play has been outstanding and everyone is enjoying the condition of the Kenai Golf Course. Thank you so much for the many compliments. As the year continues we will continue to improve the course as much as possible.
