2020 Member/Guest Results

We had 38 teams to participate in our Member/Guest. After the day 1 results were calculated, the tournament committee broke down the scores and came up with five flights.  Day one was a best ball format and day two was a scramble format for all flights. The results are as follows.

Championship Flight 1st place went to the team of Jeff and John Bullen with a two day total of 125. Moses Ngirailab and Destry Everhart finished second with a total of 127. The same two teams also finished in 1st and 2nd in the Calcutta with a Sunday score of 59 and 61 respectively.

The 1st flight was won by the team of John and Chess Harris with a score of 133. The team of Max Whitfield and Jordan Whitfield finished in 2nd with a 134. 1st place in the Calcutta went to the Whitfields with a score of 62. 2nd place went to The Harris team with a score of 63.

The 2nd flight was won by the team of Randy Martin and Jamey Davis. They shot a two day total of 146. There was a tie for 2nd place. The teams of Rickards/ Rickett and Haney/Haney both shot a 147. Martin and Davis took 1st place in the Calcutta with a 72. There was a four way tie for 2nd with all teams posting a 73. The teams were Rickards/ Rickett, Haney/Haney, Cole Fincher/Jernigan and Hopton Jones /Ferguson.

Winners of the 3rd flight were the team of Berry/Langner and 2nd place went to Griffin/Griffin. The 1st place score was a 147 and 2nd place posted a 149. Berry and Langner fired a 67 in the Calcutta to take 1st place and Griffin/Griffin posted a 71 to take 2nd place

First place winners in the 4th flight was the team of S Cooper /McNeese with a 155. 2nd place went to the team of Powell/Ford with a 156. Cooper/McNeese won the Calcutta with a 72 while Powell/Ford posted a 74 to take 2nd place.

The top two teams in each flight advanced to the MGA sponsored shootout. Two teams were eliminated in the first three rounds and then a single team was eliminated until there was only one team standing. The team of Ngirailab/Everhart made a birdie in the final round to take the shootout championship. Runner up in the shootout was the team of Martin/Davis.

Thanks to all the teams for participating. A special thanks to all the staff for the hard work that they do to make these events successful. Thanks also to the local companies that sponsor this event as well as our other tournaments.

Our next tournament will be the 2020 Clear Creek Classic. This is a three player, two day,  scramble tournament. It will be held on the dates of Saturday and Sunday (July 25 & 26) The cost to enter is $175 per player. There will be a dinner and Calcutta on Saturday night July 25.

As the summer golfing season heats up, the demand for tee times has increased significantly. We are recommending that if you want to play golf on Fridays or Saturdays before 9am; it would benefit you to schedule  a tee time. There will be no fivesomes allowed to play together in the early morning groups.
Alpine Bay Golf will be having their 2020 Member/Guest tournament on the dates of June 27 & 28. This will be a shotgun start at 8:30am each morning. The course will be closed to the public until 1pm each day.
You can call the clubhouse at 256-268-2920 to schedule a tee time.

As of this post, Alpine Bay Golf remains open for business. Our grille is open to carry out orders only.
If you feel well, we invite you to come and enjoy the outdoors and some golfing. We do ask that you practice the guidelines that are suggested by the CDC as far as social distancing. If you are not feeling well, we would prefer you to stay at home and recover and not be a threat to the well being of other golfers.
We hope that as a nation, we will recover from this situation that we are presently in and that we can resume a somewhat normal routine in the near future.

As of this post, all tournaments that have been tentatively scheduled for this spring season at Alpine bay have been postponed until further notice.

 

We have received an abundant amount of Rain thus far in 2020 (17.81 inches as of the 16th of Feb). I sure would like to save some of it for the summer months, but we will take it whenever we can. The course has been Cart Path Only for several days thus far. We hope the rain will hold off long enough for us to pre emerge our fairways and greens.

#15 Tee Box

After a rainy, cold and damp morning; the Joe Haney benefit tournament began at 12 noon on Saturday. We had 22 three man teams to participate and a fun time was had by all. With the wet conditions of the course we were forced to play under the Cart Path Only rule and most of the golfers were very cooperative.

The 22 team field was divided into two flights after all the scores were posted. The team of Hughston, McNealy and Smith took 1st place with a score of 58. 2nd place went to the team of Cleckler, Cleckler and Bullen with a score of 60. There was a tie for 1st place in the 2nd flight with two teams posting a score of 68. The two teams split the 1st and 2nd place money. The teams were Naramore, Johnson and Humphries and the other team was Gaither, Hughes and Sanderson.

The senior’s longest drive on hole #3 went to Randy (Hippie) Cleckler. Closest to the pin on #4 went to Nathan Fernandez. Closest to the pin on #8 and #14 went to Cody Smith. The longest drive on #16 (White tees) went to Chris Conn. Closest to the pin on #17 went to Moses Ngirailab. The longest putt on #18 went to Todd Haney.

There was lots of draw prizes awarded and the lunch that was provided by The Shack Bar BQ was excellent. Thanks to all the teams that participated and a special thanks to all the sponsors and our staff for the hard work that they put in to make this a successful event.

As the prime weather for golfing is just around the corner, maybe there is a part of your game that you want to improve. At Alpine Bay we have a very good instructor that can help you with whatever needs attention. Kim Wilcox has been giving instructions and coaching golf for several years. She has the experience and the knowledge to assist any golfer of any age to make the golfing experience much more fun and rewarding.

Call the clubhouse if you are interested in getting help from Kim and we will see that we get the two of you together. The number at the clubhouse is (256) 268-2920.

As we come to close another year at Alpine Bay, we want to thank all of our members and other golfers that selected Alpine Bay as the course to play some of their golf. We are looking forward to what the 2020 golfing season will bring to Alpine. With your help and continued support, our course will continue to improve and and with some help from Mother Nature we should see significant improvements to our fairways, greens and bunkers.

We strive to provide you with a quality experience while visiting Alpine Bay Golf or Bogey’s Grille. We hope that when you leave our clubhouse at the end of your day, you feel that you received a quality value for the amount of dollars that you spent with us.

We wish you a prosperous and successful year 2020 and hope to see you soon!!

SHAWN REIDER BENEFIT TOURNAMENT

As most of you already know, Shawn has been battling brain cancer for well over a year now. Although they do have good insurance, the financial burden of Angie not being able to work on a regular basis, travel to and from doctors and hospitals, co-pays, hotels and meals have taken a toll on their financial situation.

Alpine Bay Golf will be hosting another benefit tournament for them on Friday November 1 at 12:00 noon. The tournament will be a three golfer scramble and the entry fee will include lunch. The cost to enter will be $70.00 each or $210.00 per team. Mulligans will be available (2 for $5) with all the mulligan money going to the cause. Each golfer can purchase 2 muligans.

If you have a business and would like to sponsor a hole ($100.00), please let us know asap so that we can have a sponsorship sign created for your business. Any other gifts, contributions or help in any way would be greatly appreciated. If you desire to assist in any way, call us at 256-268-2920.

Shawn has been a vital person in the operation and overall existence of this golf course from the mid 80s up until the time he was diagnosed with cancer. He had a true passion for this place and we want to help the Reider family as much as possible in this time of trying conditions. So keep Shawn and Angie and the entire Reider family in your thoughts and prayers.

Spread the word about this tournament as we need to have a full field of 36 teams if possible.

 

Payouts are based on 36 teams: i.e., if we have four flights with an equal amount of teams in each flight. 1st place would be #$330.00 and 2nd place would be $210.00 per team.

Place the best you can. The tournament will be flighted after the scores have been posted.

Thanks

Tony Parton
