Last Thursday’s Finnish Golf Fun

A fine group of 35 golfers met at Peninsula Golf Course in Long Beach, on Thursday the 22nd of July, for the Finnish-American Folk Festival’s biennial golf outing.
The golf course was in excellent condition and each member of the staff in the clubhouse was very helpful. Special kudos for Sondra’s wonderful, Finnish dessert!
Nine teams competed for first-place honors and the special Handmade (by Rowena Ehrlund) trophy. Winners of the Scramble format were Dave & Trevin Leeland and Mike Swanson with a score of 53.
