Turkey Shoot and Awards Banquet

This past Saturday I played in our club's "Turkey Shoot." It's something they do every year at the local scrappy nine-hole course just for fun. Then we all went over to the Treehouse (we are the Treehouse Golf Club, after all) for the awards banquet where we had lunch and they gave out all the awards for the year and raffled off prizes. My raffle prize was a box of Maxfli M3 balls, but where I really made out was with the awards.

I knew I'd be getting the club champion trophy, of course. I think they did a really great job with these trophies, too. They even made the extra effort to have the golfer be in a woman's image on mine. Maybe we can get some more women to join this club!

I guess I hadn't realized there would also be a trophy for B-flight champion. I also didn't know I had won something for overall low net. Or that I had placed third in president's cup points (you get points for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishes, as well as tournaments entered, closest to the pin, long drive, etc). So I got trophies for all those things as well. I wore a path from my seat to the presenter!

All in all, it was a fun afternoon!

Here's my new trophy display area.

From left to right: (wall) 2nd runner up, President's Cup; (standing) Low Net;
(wall) B-flight Champion; (standing) SCGA Champion of Club Champions*;
(wall) Club Champion; (standing) Hole-in-One, Apple Mountain.
I never received anything for my other ace at Tierra Rejada or it would be there, too.

*Side note: Some people have suggested that I get my name engraved on that SCGA plate. I don't know, though. It seems like if I alter it, it's not the prize I won. What do you think?

Next post.

I'm a new golfer myself, and quite honestly, I'm inspired by your improvement. I've been reading the blog for awhile now, and I enjoy tracking my progress against yours.

Congrats on the victories.

My $.02? I think you should keep the trophy the same way you received it. I agree with you that something seems a bit strange about engraving it.

First, I love the blog. I'm a new golfer myself, and I'm enjoying reading about your progress as I try to learn the game too.

Second, my $.02 about the SCGA Plate? I say keep it the way it is. Engraving it seems... I guess you said it right: it seems like altering it. If it were me, I'd keep it just the way I got it.

Anyway, keep it up...

Yes your name should be put on there. They didn't have an engraver there to do it so you should.

Thanks to all for the congrats and the input on the plate engraving. I'm still not sure if I'm going to do it, but probably not.
