Recap of our Finale!

2019 Men’s League Finale

The finale event last night was a great success! With 80 of you coming out to participate in our 9-hole shotgun scramble tournament, we celebrated season-long achievements by each team, and of course, recognized our League Champions – congratulations once again to Par then Bar!


2019 Fundraising for Junior Golf

The weekly 50/50 Draws throughout the season raised just shy of $750.00.

The raffle prizes last night raised $1,455.00

The 50/50 last night raised $304.00 (thanks to Dave Koebel who donated back his $151.95 winnings!)

The combined total for the season-long fundraising for junior golf by YOU was $2,500. A very big thank you to each and every one of you who come out every week and support the league, support our junior golfers, and support Merry-Hill Golf Club! The league would not be as fun and successful without each of you! So once again, THANK YOU!


Our winners for Closest to the Pin were Tom Gutpell on the blue course, and Jim Knott on the white, and our winners for the Longest Drive were Jade Farwell on the blue course and Jeff Van de Vorst on the white. Congratulations to you guys, and enjoy your BBQ scrappers from Stryker Woodworking!

August 26

Round 1 of Playoffs

Well, gents, it’s hard to believe it is so late into the season, but here we are. Week 1 of playoffs is now complete.

A quick reminder of how the playoffs are different from the regular season we are no longer in a team-vs-team format, but rather each team is up against each other, fighting for points, for the next three weeks. The points you win in playoffs are added to your team’s season-long points. At the end of our 3 weeks of playoffs, we will have our league champions!


Let’s take a look and see how the teams did this week:

Playoff Team Scores

1 The Whack Attack 239 23
2 Par then Bar 242 20
3 Grip it and Rip it 249 17
4 Merry Hillbillies 260 14
5 Under Par 263 11
6 Par Excellence 264 8
7 The Master Drivers 266 5
8 Warriors of Grass Destruction 269 2


Playoff Standings

1 Par Excellence 269 8 14 14 291
2 The Whack Attack 227 23 16 16 266
3 Par then Bar 228 20 15 15 263
4 Under Par 203 11 11 11 225
5 Merry Hillbillies 196 14 12 12 222
6 Grip it and Rip it 180 17 13 13 210
7 The Master Drivers 181 5 13 13 199
8 Warriors of Grass Destruction 151 2 12 12 165


Based on the standings, it looked like the Warriors of Grass Destruction, the Master Drivers and Grip it and Rip it need to improve on their participation – remember guys, the more scores handed in, the better the opportunity to win a match, and the more points you get for your team in participation points! 

Par Excellence is leading the pack with a total of 291 points, however, you’ll notice they only won 22 points in the first week of playoffs, while the Whack Attack won 39 in the first round of playoffs… this goes to show that your total points are a combination of participation and low scores!


The winner of our 50/50 this week was Jeff Welton, bringing in $41.50 and donating another $41.50 to our junior golf programs. Thank you to all of you who participate each week!

Keep up the swings over the long weekend, and we will see you out here for round two on September 9th.
