The high school golf season is underway. Playoffs are going at all local golf courses. And all that must mean golf season is winding down.
However, that’s the furthest thing from the truth as there is still plenty of heat and great golf conditions to play in as August is only half over.
The tournament season keeps going this weekend with the annual Havre Wrestling Club four-person scramble at Prairie Farms Golf Course on Saturday. There is a also a two-person, 27-hole tournament at BCGC on Saturday. Teams will play nine holes of best ball, a nine-hole scramble and nine-hole alternate shot from the ladies' tees. The cost is $50 per person and prizes include a hole-in-one prize of a 2-12 F150 Ford pickup.
And last week was a busy one at Prairie Farms as well. The Havre High golf teams hosted the Blue Pony Invite and there were some excellent scores turned in from our local high school golfers.
Men’s league playoffs also got underway at Prairie on Tuesday with Havre Ford defeating Bing-N-Bob’s in a playoff, Schubert Insurance beating Taco Johns, Wagner Plumbing defeating D.A. Davidson, Northern Edge taking care of Waddell & Reed, Valley Furniture ousting Hole 19, Master Sports beating Hi-Line Drilling, Michelob Light taking down Bosh Kuhr Dugdale and Bear Paw Credit Union defeating Patrick Construction.
The quarterfinals took place on Wednesday, where Wagner Plumbing defeated Northern Edge Hunts, Valley Furniture beat Master Sports, Havre Ford beat Schubert Agency and Michelob Light took out BPCU.
The semifinals of the men’s league playoffs will take place tonight at Prairie Farms, with Havre Ford battling Wagner Plumbing and Michelob Light facing Valley Furniture. The finals are set for Wednesday night.
Women’s league playoffs also began last Thursday night at Prairie Farms. Stockman Bank, D.A. Davidson, Havre Heating & AC and Patrick Construction all advanced to the semifinals, which will be held Thursday night. Carrie Kato was low gross with a 45 and Kim Evans was low net with a 31.5.
