Bulldog Open Father’s Day

Plan a fun day at the Whitefish Lake Golf Course with your friends or family members by playing in the Bulldog Open on June 16. The Bulldog is the fundraiser that supports all out Junior Golf Programs as well as a good portion of the Whitefish High School Golf Team expenses. Don K Chevrolet, Dodge and Subaru along with HUB International Insurance are sponsoring a chance to win a new car with a hole in one on number 4 North. A putting contest sponsored by Jesco Sports of Kalispell offers a sports vehicle for a lucky winner sinking a series of putts.

Lunch and dinner are provided to all players and included in the entry fee. Prizes for closest to the pin on all the par 3’s and hole-in-one prizes on the other three par threes will also be available.

This four-person scramble is always a fun event for all the participants but a worthwhile fundraiser as well. Call the Golf Shop to register or get answers to any questions you may have. 862-5960.

Short game practice area now open

All of us can benefit from sharpening our short games and the new short game practice area behind the number one hole on the South is now ready for use. You can practice your short pitch and chip shots as well as greenside bunker shots. This is always a great place to schedule a lesson with one of great Professionals to speed up the process of improving your short game. “A good short game will beat a good long game nearly every time.”.

Bunker etiquette

Did you know that the new rules of golf allow you to remove loose impediments regardless of their origin? Did you know that all of us, aside from the geese, turkeys and deer, are to rake the bunkers when we enter them? Our crew cannot possibly rake every bunker everyday, and even if they did without players doing their share we would still find foot prints in the sand that will inevitably attract our golf ball. So if you enter take a rake and do your duty to smooth out the sand.

Reading a putt

Do you look at the green when you approach it to see which way water would run off during a downpour? This is a good way to get the general feel or roll of your putts. I have found it best to read the putt backwards, from the hole to the ball, which gives me a better idea of where the ball should enter the hole. Try to determine where in the hole a breaking putt will enter, it may be 5 o’clock or in extreme cases as much as 9 o’clock. If you always pick 6 o’clock you will miss most often on the low side.
