GreenBack Challenge Is Popular New Competition!

The GreenBack Challenge is a week long golf competition featuring a different format

each week. Each player or team pays the entry fee, plays their round, turns in their

scorecard, at the end of the week the winner is declared, and the winnings are

 dispersed. Week number one was a simple low net tournament. Week two featured a

two-person event with the winner determined by the combined low net scores of the two

players. Anne Douglass and Jean Hutchinson were the women’s winners last week.

Greg Aldrich and Kenny Wiberg shared the men’s prize with Kendall McGuffie and Tony

 Bray. This week’s GreenBack Challenge features an alternate shot format with two

person teams playing their partner’s shot all the way to the hole. Men’s, women’s, and

mixed teams will split the prize money. Just get a partner, come by the Clubhouse, sign

up, and go out and play your best round.

Last Friday’s Scrambles tournament was played by eight foursomes. First low gross

(32) was won by Anne Douglass, Ginny Perry, Charlie Odenweller, and Jack Shaw.

Low putts (10) was a tie between the teams of Carol Shaw, Tony Bray, Harrison Clark,

Josh Clough and Suzanne Banghart, Richard Eaton, Mike Kirk, and Bob Muskat.

Closest to the pin on hole six was Anne Douglass (7’ 3”) and Dick Babcock (13’ 1”).

The “dice game” added interest to Ladies Golf on Tuesday morning. Two teams tied

for low score (36): a four person team of Sharon Helstedt, Suzanne Banghart, Paula

Colwell, and Judy Darby and a three person team of Nancy Eaton, Barbara Whitman,

and Anne Douglass. Low putts (9) was won by the team Amy Real, Ginny Perry, and

Jean Hutchinson. Paula Colwell made a chip in.

Open tennis is underway on Sunday afternoons and Wednesday mornings. All three

courts were in use this past . Open chess will begin on the first Friday in July.

Chess players gather in the Clubhouse from 5 - 7 p.m. Beautiful aerial views of the

Island Country Club, provided by Charlie Odenweller, are available for sale in the Clubhouse; $30.

Proceeds go to the club. The photos make great gifts for the golfer in your family.

Also a reminder that on Sunday September 23, the golf course will be closed all day for the annual Billings Classic Tournament. Open tennis will continue as usual and the tennis courts will continue to be open.

Billings Diesel Classic Sep. 23

Posted on September 11, 2012 at 3:25 PM Comments comments (0)

It’s hard to believe that we are almost midway through September. The hot summer weather we’ve experienced is transitioning to cool September days and even cooler nights.

 

It certainly felt like September when the ladies played golf on Tuesday, September 11th. It was a breezy morning, requiring sweatshirts and sweaters. First low gross went to Barbara Marquis with 41. Low net went to Paula Colwell with 28. The odd holes gross score winner went to Marilyn Schorer with 22. The even holes gross score winner went to Jean Hutchinson with 16. Paula Colwell had a chip in on hole 6.

 

On Friday September 7th, scrambles were still going strong. First low gross with 31 went to Myron Curtis, Ted Crouch, Wayne Endriss, and Mimi Gerstell. Second low gross with 31 went to Don Powell, Bill Whitman, Carol Shaw, and Barbara Keyes. First low putts with 10 went to Barbara Marquis, Kendall McGuffie, Karen Egerton, and Dave Goddard. Second low puts with 11 went to Jack Shaw, Arthur Poitras, Jack Moser, and Thela Leach. Closest to the pin for the women went to Suzanne Banghart with 2’ 2.5”. For the men, closest to the pin went to Jack Shaw with 2’9”.

 

The Billings Diesel Classic golf tournament is coming up on September 23. This tournament is a personal favorite of mine. I may work a long day, but the payoff is fun and yummy food! The format is a two person scramble with men, women, and a mixed couples division. There will be AM and PM flights. Dinner and awards will follow the PM flight at approximately 5pm. Proceeds benefit the Deer Isle-Stonington Booster Club. To enter or any questions, call the Clubhouse.

 

In Twilight Leagues news, I might as well copy/paste the results from last week to this weeks! In the lead for low gross for 10 consecutive weeks is Don Powell and Stroud Watson with 438. In the lead for low net is “King” Richard Eaton and Roger Bergen with 372. Come on guys!

 

Mimi Gerstell reports that “three tables of bridge players enjoyed Mary Newman's cookies on September 10th. Winners were Lola Marston (2730 points), Mimi Gerstell (2600), and Bob Hattemer (2420). The final meeting of Monday night bridge for this season will occur at 7 pm on Sept. 17, members and non-members welcome.”

 

The Deer Isle-Stonington golf team has a few matches coming up. On Tuesday September 18th, they will face off against George Stevens Academy at 4pm. On Thursday September 20th, they will be playing against Washington Academy at 4:00pm. The course is not closed for these matches but we ask that you give priority to the team. Good luck Mariners!

Thank you to all who contributed, whether it be time, an item in the auction, or financially, the auction would not have been such a success without all who helped.

 

Ladies golf hosted their closing luncheon on Tuesday, August 28th. Our fantastic cook, Janet Snowden, prepared a delicious meal of baked haddock, marinated green beans, and coleslaw. For dessert the ladies had ice cream sundaes topped with the Banghart family’s famous chocolate sauce. It is spoon licking good! The ladies didn’t play golf due to the nasty rain we experienced that morning.

 

Linda Allen reports “in tennis news, the final tournament of the season, the postponed Mixed Doubles, was held on Saturday, Aug 25th, with six teams participating. After a full morning of spirited play, winners of the event were Carol Shaw and Dave Jaquette with scores of 8-1, 8-4, and 9-7. Runners-up Flax Hermes and Tom Colwell played brilliantly but were just edged out by Carol and Dave. They joined the winners in receiving trophy mugs made by Tanya Taylor of Wildflower Gallery Coordinators for the event were Tom Stevenson and Linda Allen, who provided refreshments including homemade scones! Thanks to everyone who came out to play.

There will be one more Friday afternoon of Open Tennis to finish out the month of August. Wednesday morning and Sunday afternoon Open Tennis continues for as long as the Club is open so be sure to join us when you can. Cooler weather makes outdoor tennis even better!”

Friday evening chess had its last meeting on Friday August 24th. Monsieur Dick Powell made sure to update me on what some of his wonderful players have been up to this summer. Andy Turner went to Windsor Locks, CT the end of July to compete in the 17th Annual Bradley Open. Turner was 12th overall in the under 1500 rating section out of 27. Turner was one of only two listed on the official Bradley Open Results sites from Maine. Cameron Wendell was in a five way tie for third at the 42nd Continental Open in August in Sturbridge, MA. Wendell was in the under 1400 division. Cole Stewart won a trophy for third individual in K-8 division the end of March this year in the National Competition in San Diego, California. Stewart finally received his trophy, due to error on the trophy companies part, at Evening Chess on Friday.

We have a winner! Tony Bray and Ryan Hayward played a close President’s Cup match and it came down to the last putt. Tony Bray was victorious in earning himself the title of the 2012 Men’s President’s Cup Champion! Both men played very well. Congratulations Tony!

 

On Tuesday August 21st we will be hosting a wine and beer tasting at the Club. The cost of the tasting includes, hors d’oeuvres, wine or beer, and a complimentary ICC wine glass.

Linda Allen reports for tennis that “In tennis news, the ICC hosted a tournament against the Blue Hill Country Club on Friday, Aug. 3rd, with ten ICC members participating against twelve Blue Hill CC members in women's doubles, men's doubles and mixed doubles matches. On the winning side in women's doubles, Joan Sorensen and Carol Shaw won their match against Lisa Thors and Nancy Hatfield with a score of 8-1, and in mixed doubles, Mike Allen and Carol Shaw beat Andy Beardsley and Barbara McCrom with a score of 8-5 and Dana Douglass and Linda Allen won the final match of the day over Jim Crawford and Nancy Hatfield with a score of 9-7. Although Blue Hill won the match taking 6 of the 9 sets, players appeared to enjoy the event and there was a very high level of good, competitive sportsmanship, according to the tournament coordinators, Barrett Flanders and Jim Starkey. Plans for a rematch next year are already being set up for the first Friday in August at Blue Hill.

Open Tennis is now being played on Friday afternoons from 2:00 - 5:00 for the month of August in addition to the regular schedule on Wed. mornings from 9:00 - 12:00 and Sunday afternoons from 2:00 - 5:00. Play is open to both members and non-members so visitors are always welcome. If you need a raquet, there are a few available for use; just ask in the clubhouse.

The next tennis tournament is the Mixed Doubles on Sat., Aug. 11th at 9:00 a.m. It is being coordinated by Woody Osborne. The final match of the season will be the Men's Doubles on Sat., Aug. 18th, coordinated by John Martin. Sign-up sheets are posted in the clubhouse.”

 

Mimi Gerstell reports that, “four tables of bridge on August 6th included such unusual results as 7H bid and made, and at the opposite extreme, something-or-other down 4 doubled and vulnerable. Winners were Lola Marston (3940 points), Ginny Perry (3880), Josh Knight (3240), and Marika Knight (3030). Members and non-members are welcome on Mondays at 7 pm through August, and possibly one or two Mondays after Labor Day.”

 

The ladies had a small group playing on Tuesday. This is because most of the ladies are participating in the ladies club championship. Those who didn’t participate did their usual round of play. First low gross went to Ellen Nagle with 50. Low net went to Cathy Snowden with 37. Low putts went to Barbara Keyes with 16. Stay tuned for the results of the ladies club championship!

 

I think I have telepathic powers. For those who noticed, I apologize for announcing (in the headline of all places!) that Judy Darby won the ladies club championship. While she may win the championship in the future, we have to wait for that tournament to finish! Judy did in fact win the Women’s President’s Cup. I also stated later in the article that Tony Bray and Ryan Hayward were the last two playing in the “men’s club championship.” Again, they were finishing the president’s cup math. Sorry for the error, I tend to get the two confused and hopefully this will cause me to be more aware in the future!

 

Friday morning scrambles had a big group. First low gross went to Don Powell, Anne Douglass, Prep Keyes, and Dick O’Hare with 32. Second low gross went to Britt Parrack, Barbara Keyes, Jerry Gray, and Dave Goddard with 32. First low putts went to Bill Darby, Lola Marston, Thela Leach, and Jon Hellstedt with 10. Second low putts went to Bill Whitman, Meredyth Jenkins, Howard Morgan, and Dick Roth with 11. Closest to the pin on hole 6 went to Gretchen Parrack with 14’ 7”. Closest to the pin on hole 4 went to Don Powell with 5’ 9”.

 

This Sunday, August 12th, we will be hosting the Bar Harbor Bank & Trust tournament. The format is an individual tournament with men, women, and senior flights. Tee times will start at 7:30am and every 10 minutes after. Non-members must submit a recent USGA handicap card and index. Proceeds from the tournament will benefit Deer Isle-Stonington’s Ready by 21. To sign up, please call the club at 348-2379 or stop by for an entry form.
