SOUTHERN HILLS GOLF AND COUNTRY CLUB. We all love to play golf.  Let's face it, it's the year round, lifetime sport. We play golf, we watch golf and we read about golf 365 days a year.  But golf in the fall is extra special. Temperatures are starting to fall, the grass is as green and as spongy as it's going to get and frankly it's nice to play 11 or 12 holes before our shirts are soaked through with sweat instead of two. That's also why we love Southern Hills. It's the most popular of our annual tournaments and it just seems like a fall kind of golf club. So this year we weren't disappointed. Eight-nine men came to Hawkinsville to play the first round of the fall. Yea I know technically it's not fall but, lets face it, the day after labor day has always represented the change of the season, at least for me. Now did we have stellar play - not really.  The positive numbers you see on the scoreboard below pretty much represent the sum total of the scorecards that had plus signs on them.  But we had fun. We enjoyed the fellowship of the game and at the end of the round, as always when we play Southern Hills, we enjoyed Steak House fried chicken. What could be more "fall" than that.

CGSGA SKINS GAME WINNERS.   It's great to see skins game participation going up. This month we hit 80%.  I think that's mostly because many players who chose not to enter the skins game in the past, see that they would have won a skin if only they had put a crowbar in their wallet and pulled out a dollar. This month we had 72 men pay to play.  Southern Hills allowed us to have three winners this month, each winning $24.  They were:
  • Bill Simmons (Birdie #5)
  • Bart Tharpe (Birdie #8)
  • Alf Dykes (Birdie #11)

And finally, we once again welcomed our perpetual guest Ronnie Davis - we'd love have you join Ronnie.
