A field of 92 golfers – 46 two-player teams – competed in the season-opening 2018 RDGA Two-Person Scrambleat the Golf Club at Blue Heron Hills on Saturday, May 5.

The competition featured three flights in the Men’s Championship Division (Gold Tees, 6,606 yards), two flights in the Men’s Blue Tee Division (6,257 yards) and a Women’s Division (which featured net and gross score winners).

The overall winning team in the Men’s Championship Division was Jim Scorse and Ken Seibold – who also won the RDGA Two Person Scramble title two years ago at The Links at Greystone.

Scorse and Seibold teamed up to post a score of 7-under-par 64, winning the overall title by two shots over the team of Luke Gurrero and Mark Kretschmann. Scorse and Seibold also earned spots in the RDGA District Championship at Monroe Golf Club on July 24-28.

Winning the overall title in the Men’s Blue Tee Division was the team of Timothy Brei and Morgan Bare, who finished with a score of 1-under-par 70. Brei and Bare won a three-way tiebreaker by matching back nine scores with two other teams who posted 70 – John Welch and Bill Cornish and Allan Hanaburgh and Craig Freeman.

In the Women’s Division, Joan Leroy and Susanne Yarnall won the Low Gross Score flight with an 85, whileBecky Duino and Diane Shoger won the Low Net Score flight with a 79.

We’ve come up with a yearly program for members and vendors to help us with the enhancement of BHH.  The good news: This program will keep member fee increases to a minimum, along with increasing revenues to continue making major improvements to BHH.

Each year, we’ll outline projects to better our golf course and venue.   Then we’ll ask for a pledge or donation from our members as individuals, or from their businesses if they so choose.

Here are the (4) donation levels: 

  • Bronze: $100
  • Silver: $250
  • Gold: $500
  • Platinum: $1000

In recognition of your generosity, we’ll post your name on a memorial sign at the location of each enhancement project to which you donate.

This year’s projects are exciting!

We’ll beautify our Wedding Ceremony area with a 5 ft wide cement walkway, tinted a tan color, ending at a 20 ft. cement pad, tinted with the same tan color with a cedar trellis embedded in cement. A man-made hill with BHH boulders on top with dark brown mulch along the side of walkway towards the water.  We’ll also pore a pad between trees by #9 green for a bench.  This spot will be used for wedding pictures, and as a member’s casual conversation area.

All these improvements will be done by Mark and our grounds crew.  Not only is Mark a terrific Superintendent, he is an experienced mason. Utilizing him on this project will keep the cost down by approximately 2 and 1/2 times.  Of course, that’s a huge savings to us.

We’ll also add a new fountain to the pond by #9 green.  The fountain will help to push water toward the lake and keep stagnant pond water moving.  Of course just as important, the new fountain will be an impressive sight to golfers and patrons as they enter BHH.

Lastly, we’ll barter with landscape vendors to work with us:  Their services in return for advertising (their signage will be placed on our flower beds around the clubhouse).

Any excess money raised will be kept in a separate “enhancement project account”. We’ll use those funds on future enhancement projects from year to year.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
