After a one day rain delay, the Edna High School Golf Tournament got underway. The ladies began on Tuesday, 03/24/15.
The previous weekend's deluge (Thank God for the rain!) left some swampy areas,
but the higher fairways were starting to dry out.
Though the Goodyear Blimp was not available, a local crop duster flew in low,
while the pit-masters kept their secret concoctions hidden from view.
Wednesday, 03/25/15, it was the boys turn on the links. The course was somewhat drier than the day before,
and the carts had better access.
Cell phone reception was good; useful for checking local wind speed and direction or checking the latest livestock market report.
Despite the swampy conditions, the boys spotted only one 'gator.
Despite a little mud and non-attributable water hazards, the tournament was a success.
The Edna Country Club golf course has plenty of mesquite cover and some huge oaks.
Besides being well maintained, the course is eco-friendly. Old wheels are used as course markers.
The course was well thought out. There are pole mounted green spittoons conveniently located around the links.
The spittoons are awkward to use, but course management provides little green and white towels so you can wipe your chin. It seems a little odd, but all the spittoons are filled with bristle brushes; maybe some type of anti-splash device or something?
