Aurora Golf Outing 9/29/16
Poco Creek Golf Course in Aurora, NE was the setting for the second annual golf outing for NCA members. Twelve club members participated in what is described as a perfect Corvette weather day with no wind and temperature in the mid-60’s. It was hosted by long time NCA members, Bud and Luana. Luana got up early to bake fresh rolls for the group to start the day at 9AM. At 9:30 we had a shotgun start comprised of randomly drawn two-man teams. The format consisted of three holes of best ball, three holes scramble and three holes alternate shot. After those nine holes were completed we broke for complimentary pizza provided by Bud and Luana. The last nine holes were individual stroke play. The day ended with the awarding of prizes by Bud which were provided by club member, George and club sponsor T.O. Haas. A good time was had by all with a unified firm commitment to return next year and improve on this year’s score.
