On April 21, the threat of rain and steady 15 mph wind with gusts up to 25 mph, caused several Beachview Men’s Golf Association members to cancel. But 15 souls decided to brave the elements. Five three-man teams were drawn from a hat and blew out to a shotgun start.

They played a shamble, where all three tee off and the best drive is taken. Each player then plays his own ball into the cup. The best net ball is the score for the team.

President Jerry Mader, David Smith and Al Krause had an amazing score of 42 to win the event. Two teams tied for second with scores of 51. A scorecard playoff determined the team of Bjorn Olsson, Jim Mulka and Dan Keys were second over Rene Lohser, Dick Chocol and Jack Tukey, third.

On April 17, the club played a very modified stableford event. The team of Roger Triftshauser, Bob Ritchlin, and Rene Lohser chipped and putted their way to victory with a total score of 122.

In second place with a score of 120 were Dan Lautermilch, Jim Mulka, Guy Tober and John Kilkenny. Fred Zimmer, Dave Lewis, and Ralph Barton came in third with a score of 119.
