For the Record
Monday Night Vineyards Utility League
The league played a two-person scramble on a chilly Monday Night, but they survived. The closest to the pin on Hole 5 was Team Al Etzel and Bill Anderson. They also had a skin with a birdie on Hole 3. The only other skin was a par on Hole 1 by Team John Lakas and Jeff Nelson. Scores were from 37-41. Next Monday is Memorial Day, so league play will begin on June 3, beginning at 4:30 p.m. There is still room for a few more golfers and also subs.
