Long over due, but work has begun to refurbish the Barbecue Grill Pavilion. With donated funds and labor the work is moving at a steady pace. If you haven't noticed, the nasty old willow is finally gone. A new 22' x 34' concrete pad has been poured, Steel roof, ceiling and soffet, have been installed over existing frame next step is to remove old cracked concrete pad, move the grill and rebuild its base for easier use, finish concrete floor work. Then install a frame and roof over the new pad. Thanks to all who have contributed to this project. If you would like to help with your time, talent or financial contribution, feel free to contact Oceana Golf Club 231-861-4211 or email email@example.com.

With the weather forecast all week long leading up to the weekend of June 12 and 13 calling for rain and thunderstorms everyone was prepared to get wet. But, NOT ONE DROP fell during the 37th Annual 36 Hole Event, sunny and mid 70's prevailed along with excellent scoring conditions. The young guns (pictured) of Evan Aamodt and Scott Schuitema won with a score 63-64=127. Two time defending champions Ken Taylor and Brad VanDam had their struggles on Sunday after being in second after day one only two shots back, finishing 65-72=137 in 5th place. The individual round of the weekend went to Ryan Mouw shooting 65 on his own ball Sunday to help his partner Lane White win the first flight 72-62=134.
There was some incredible golf shots both days, but on Saturday hole #3 saw two Eagle 2's on the 314 yard par 4 hole. First Cris Gotaas knocks in a 101 yard 9 iron from the left rough. Playing in the same foursome Brad VanDam on the very next swing of the group knocks in a lob wedge from 75 yards out of the right rough. The odds of two shots back to back going in from that distance is unknown to this PGA Golf Professional, but it is high.
