Thought this was an interesting bit of Bellevue men's golf club history. The money list from the 2000. Y2K, the internet was supposed to crash, chaos was to ensue, all we worried about was cashing in the next tournament.
The late Walt Wilson ran a Geocities website back then and was very found of using a variety of colors in his spreadsheets.
It is great to see the old names on this list, they bring back a lot of memories.

Bob Miller running our optional Best Ball for every tournament.

Ted Caputo would congratulate himself every time he made a putt "nice shot Ted" he would say.

Bruce McNally would adjust his posted scores based on how many putts he thought he should NOT have made, shoot a 75, post a 79.
The phrase "Summer are Rules and some aren't" was coined after playing one round with Kevin Burnett.
Scott Wall used to show to our tournaments wearing one grey and one black Footjoy saddle shoes.

The second generation Muni Rats coming into their own, Matt and Mike Anderson, Jim Sisko.
Heck, even a young Darrin Fossum won $26.00 in two tournaments.
Good Times!!!

Jerry McDonnell extricates his golf ball from a little moisture during the 6-6-6 tournament Saturday.


3/28/2014

The sea’s where angry my friend and so where the fairways and greens.


In weather fit more for Fowl than man, with droplets impacting at their terminal velocity and coalescence occurring, forty four hardy souls braved the elements to play in Saturdays Tournament.
We actually had a glimpse of a few rays from the golden orb which gave our fearless golf-a-holics a glimmer of hope that maybe the day would not be a total disaster. 

Though there was a wee bit of moisture, the 6-6-6 Tournament Saturday was played to it’s completion with the help of Premier Golf’s very own Troy Rodvold. Troy brought out the squeegee to remove standing water from the greens making the course a little more playable.

Everyone in the field had umbrella’s at full deployment and dawning their best Sou’westers and Waterproofs, these resilient golfing die-hards still managed to shoot some fairly low scores and remarkably, got around the course in a little over 4hrs.

Results are posted under the Tournaments tab.

Pictures from Saturday tournament may be viewed under the Photo's tab, click 2014 Photo's.

Reminder: General membership meeting 7:00pm Thursday, April 3rd at the Muni

Next tournament is the Spring Field Day Saturday, April 19th. Gross and Net by division's. Entry deadline is Wednesday April 16th.

Did anyone hear Immediate Past President Brian P. Catlin aced the par 3 15th hole during the Wednesday tournament at the Muni? Playing a very,very long 115 yards, in gale force winds, Catlin finessed a pitching wedge that landed just past the hole and spun back in for the 5th ace of his career, all of them coming on #15 at Bellevue!

Golfingly Yours,
Capt'n Muni Rat
