CASTLEWOODS COUNTRY CLUB
MESSAGES from MAX
Congratulations are in order for Derrel Palmer and David Hardin on their sudden death victory in the 2006 Castlewoods Member/Guest Golf Tournament held over the weekend of April 29th and 30th. Their two day total of 72-67=139 was tied with Tom Judkins and Beef Entsrom at 70-69=139; how- ever Derrel birdied number 1 to claim the Championship! For other results of the 2006 Member/Guest, please see page 4.
Speaking of winning, Brian Brister and Blake Richardson laid claim to the first prize in the gross and net division respectively, of the CMGA’s ‘Who’s Your Crawdaddy?’ Another CMGA event and another great time! One rumor at the party after the event was that one player ‘RUSHED’ his way through 30 pounds of crawfish! A special thanks to John Oxley, Duke Simmons, Ronnie Schmitz, Ken Peacock, Michael and Terri Slack for making this event the most fun event of the year. For other results from the tour- nament see page 4. Sign up today in the golf shop for the next CMGA event which is the ‘Thong-A-Long’ scheduled for Saturday June 24th. More details about this event can be found on page 3.
onship. This championship will bring the State’s best female play- ers to Castlewoods including 9 time winner Lou Hart, 10 time winner Cissye Gallagher, and long knocking defending Cham- pion Amanda Mathis. I look for our own Elsa Foley to make a run deep into this match play event. Congratulations to Elsa & Kathy Kelly for winning the CLGA Member-Member Member –Guest with a 67. For other results please see page 3.
Speaking of Champions, very rarely do clubs get to experience golf “phenoms”. Northwood Country Club in Meridian had Mike Taylor and the Country Club of Jackson had Rett Crowder. We may just have one here too. Fourteen year old Kevin Brady shot 63 from the white tees on Tuesday May 19th. He has posted 62 rounds this year and has a 1.7 handicap index. Great playing Kevin!
Adam Hand defends his Club Championship over the weekend of July 1st and 2nd. Everyone is encouraged to play in the Club Championship and you can by calling the pro shop today at 992- 1942and signing up.
Our club has probably the best group of players and families of any club in Mississippi and maybe any- where. They will be put to a test during the month of June as we host two State of Mississippi Champion- ships. The first will be the MS Golf Association’s State Father/Son Championship sponsored by Missis- sippi Sports Medicine and will be held over Father’s Day weekend June 16th- 18th. We have several Cas- tlewoods’ member families that chal- lenge for the title of this event each year. The following week on June 20th-23rd we will host the Mississippi Women’s State Amateur Champi-
The Castlewoods Memorial Day Four-Ball was won by Chris Berry and his partner……..me. While I may not be one of the best golfers in the field of 92, I was one of the smartest since I asked Chris to play with me. Chris’s ball striking ability left our playing partners awestruck the entire weekend. Much like Willie Shoemaker, I rode this thoroughbred to the Championship!
