Veterans Score Board
2013 has been a slow start for golf. But the Veterans have gotten right to it. As of this week the Navy leads the Marines 7 to 3.4 with the Army following with 1.4. We still have two more Mondays left in May including Memorial day. We are allowing Veterans to play free on Memorial Day again this year. So, lets get in gear you guys, pride is on the line!
The start of October was well attended, The Navy leads at 2.8 followed by the Marines with 2.1 and Army and the Air Force each with 1.1 This will be the final medal for the year and it will end when the weather gets bad so score early and score often! There are many holes that are tied so it can swing fast!
The final week of September gave little surprises, the Navy rallied to win 4.6 to the Army 3.6 and Air Force 2.2 followed by the Marines at .9 This is always a heated battle and the Navy seems to rally at the end if necessary to win this year. They have played well even though the Army always has the most players.
The middle of September is heating up even though the temps are lowering. This may be the month for the Marines to get the win. They are within striking distance of the two leaders that are neck and neck. Navy leads with 3.4 followed by the Army with 3.2 and then the Marines have 2.7 followed by Air Force with 1.7 This will be a close race, only 1 week to go!
Great day for the Veterans! Several played and scored for their team. A lot of holes changed to different winners including an eagle on # 14 by a Navy player. The score for this week's match is Navy 3.5, Army 2.6 followed by the Marines at 2.1 and the Air Force at 1.1 If you are a Veteran, come on out and enjoy the fun and fellowship with your fellow Veterans. We have had a few come out after the 2:00 cutoff time, up till now we have let them play but with the earlier darkness and twilight starting at 4:00pm we will have to stop the free Veteran play at 2:00 as we have always done.
With the foul weather experienced on Monday Sept 3rd, only a few showed up, with the second batch of cards it is now in the Navy's favor. Navy 5.2 and Army 3.3 Still a long way to go till the end of the month with only a few scores.
August Ended with The Army rally. The Army gets the medal with 4.7 followed closely by the the Navy at 4.4 The Air Force had 1.9 followed by the Marines with 1.4
One week left in August, Navy has lost it's grip, the Army has fought hard and is now leading the skirmish! One more match left in August and Army leads 5.0 to the Navy 3.4 followed by Air Force with 2.3 and then the Marines with 1.4 Everyone has chipped away at the Navy lead, it is all about teamwork! Thanks for playing and may the best scores win the Medal for the month of August!
August competition started with the Navy once again charging off with the lead, 6. with the Army's 3.1 The Marines and the Air Force follow with less than 1 point each. Lets get it in gear and make this month a real competition like last month. July could have gone either way up until the last day and the Navy came on strong knowing they were in danger of ending their streak!
July ended with the Navy once again winning the competition. Navy had 5.1, Air Force 3.65 and Army followed with 3.
The Army is the winner in June! They have 7.0 to the Navy's 3.05 points. The Air Force is came on strong with 2.35 points narrowing in on the Navy. the Marines only scored .3, but they did get on the board. Just not enough time for anyone to overcome the fine show the Army put on early in the month! Good Contest this month, thanks to all who played!
Memorial Day was a great day for the Navy. The Navy won the may medal with a score of 4.65 to the trailing Army Score of 3.5 and the Air Force couldn't keep up the momentum; they ended with a 3.35 Thanks to all the Veterans for keeping it fun! Remember June is a new month and all is square. See you Monday!
The summer is heating up with a very close race to be decided on Monday! Yes, the Veterans will still get free greens fees on Monday. The score is ever so close and could go any of 3 ways depending upon who scores best and has the most players! The May leader going into the last match of the month is the Navy with 3.7 following closely is the Air Force with 3.1 and then the ground assault from the Army with 2.5, the Marines are coming from behind with 2.2 so they are making points! You guys bring so much joy to all of us here at Walnut Creek, thanks for protecting our freedom!
The spring has been a busy one, with all the great weather and superb conditions we have seen a lot of veterans. The first Medal shall be awarded, It was a surprise, the Marines kicked with a late start and just a few players but fell short, the Army continued to be strong leading the way until the last few players finished but then the Navy overcame all adversities with a strong finish! The first Medal of 2012 goes to the Navy with 5.8 points followed by the Army with 4.75 and the Marines got on the board with 1.85. Again, thanks for all the fun it brings us; and thank you for what you did for me and my family when you served.
