Wednesday, December 13th, 2017 / Kokopelli

Conveniently located within the El Dorado Lakes community near Arizona State University and just 20 minutes from Phoenix’s Sky Harbor Airport, Kokopelli Golf Club in Gilbert offers the service and amenities of an upscale private club, at daily fee prices. Open to the public seven days a week for golf, tournaments, dining and special events, the club also offers attractively-priced membership options – offering avid golfers unlimited access and an array of exclusive benefits and privileges.

Can you believe it Harley Ewing won it today at Kokopelli his personal nemesis course with a nifty 65 net.  A course on which I almost had a heat stroke one Summer past. Even scoring 2 Birds on # 1 and #7. I played very well until taking a 7,6,6,8 on the last 4 holes. Oh well enough about me, Three other players came in tied at 71 nets. Gordon Lukert the Dean of VGA came in 2nd on the scorecard playoff beating out Dave Dean who got 3rd place and Doug Rankin who scored the Atta-A-Boy award. Kokopelli can be a tough track and I think it played that way today. Sad to hear Richard Brooks suffered a severe (11 stitches) cut on his leg from the bottom of a Golf club bag. He was ok to drive himself to the hospital after some remarkable first aid given by Jeff Stone and others at the course. We all wish you well Richard and hope to see you out playing with us soon.

The Outdoorsman: During his physical, the doctor asked the patient about his daily activity level. He described a typical day this way: “Well, yesterday afternoon, I waded along the edge of a lake, drank eight beers, escaped from wild dogs in the heavy brush, jumped away from an aggressive rattlesnake, marched up and down several rocky hills, stood in a patch of poison ivy, crawled out of quicksand and took four leaks behind big trees.” Inspired by the story, the doctor said,“You must be one hell of an outdoorsman!” ”NAH,” he replied, “I’m just an awful golfer.”
