Congratulations to John Pottorff for making his first career Hole In One today at Carthage Golf Course!

 

John was playing with his normal group consisting of Rob Ward, Karl Moorhead, Randy Haas, and Bob Hamm when they all witnessed John’s ball go in the hole.

On hole #3, playing 108 yards, John hit his 56 degree the perfect distance and direction to make a memory that will last forever.

Hole in One’s are rare so if you see John around the course be sure to congratulate him on this awesome achievement!

We are excited to have everyone out at Carthage Golf Course tomorrow to wrap up this weekend’s tournament!

For those of you who don’t know, a creative artist by the name of Joe has been carving a tree by #1’s green in the previous weeks.

He recently finished and it looks fantastic! Joe did a great job on this bear, as well as the eagle that was carved out on the back nine about 12 years ago.

Joe has a passion for carving wood, and being creative in his own mind making things. At 78 years old and 25 years in the business, he continues his passion and we are blessed to see him come out here for a second time and create something so great!

Thank you Joe for another great eye catcher here at Carthage Golf Course. We appreciate your great work!

That’s a wrap for this years High School Girls Golf Season!

Carthage Girls Hailey Bryant, Rylee Scott, and Caitlin Derryberry finished their season in the past two days playing in the State Championship at Twin Hills.

It was tough conditions being very cold and wet, but they stayed strong throughout the two days and all did well. Hailey said that her ultimate goal was to make all-state this year, and she did just that! Hailey Bryant shot 87 in round 1 and 82 in round 2 to finish 8th place, achieving her goal to make top 10.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rylee Scott tied for 34th shooting a 92 in round 1 and a 99 in round 2. The last Carthage golfer was Caitlin Derryberry who shot 115 in round 1 and 101 in round 2, placing 59th.

Hailey, Rylee, and Caitlin all worked very hard this season to make it to State, and that is an achievement itself. The coaches are very proud of all three golfers and anyone who see’s them out on the course should tell them congratulations on a successful year!

We wanted to share with you a very interesting round of golf shot by on of our members here, Jeff Hess.

On Friday the 16th, Jeff Hess played a round here at Carthage. The first thing we want to do is congratulate Jeff on his third Hole in One of his golfing career! As cool as a hole in one is, the scorecard is much more interesting in that. Take a look!

Jeff had a lot of ups and downs in his round. While he is not necessarily happy with his how is round went, it was a one in a million. If you look at his scorecard, you can see that on 18 holes, Jeff recorded the scores of a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9! With lots of ups and downs, within 18 holes he recorded a score from 1-9 on his scorecard.

There are some interesting scorecards in golf, but this is something that needed to be shared! Don’t forget to give Jeff a high five and a congratulations on getting a hole in one on Hole #12 at Carthage next time you see him.
