Ralph Myhre reconfigures finishing holes

MIDDLEBURY — Golfers should be aware that holes have been switched at Ralph Myhre Golf Course: The former Hole No. 9 is now Hole No. 18, and vice versa.
Course operators advise golfers that after completing No. 8 they should follow the signs over to play the new No. 9 (the old No. 18). After playing No. 17 they should follow the signs to play the new No. 18 (the old No. 9). New signs and scorecards with updated yardages and slope are in place, according to an email from the course.
Course officials said there were several reasons for the change, “but the main reason is to improve the overall customer experience.”
Primarily, the front nine now finishes at the clubhouse, they said, meaning it is easier for golfers to “walk nine holes and then grab a cart for the back nine if they choose,” and also for them halfway through a round “to use the facilities, stock up on tees and balls, or even to grab a quick bite at the turn to enjoy on the back nine.”
Also, course employees will be able to “keep better track of who is coming off from number nine, and give us the opportunity to be more aware of when the way is clear for people to start on hole number 10,” according to the email.
On July 18 and 19 Ralph Myhre hosted the Vermont Senior Women’s Golf Association annual Vermont Open. Reggie Parker of the Ekwanok Country Club fired a 160 to win the event.
In regular weekly action, in the July 18 Wednesday Men’s Scramble the foursome of Bert Phinney, Ric Wheeler, Josh Newton and Dale White prevailed, with the team of Jesse Wing, Nate Paquette, Raj Palekar and Carl Eickenberg taking second.
In Bill Davidson Thursday Men’s Golf the next day the quartet of Don Dayton, Russ Reilly, Randy McFall and John Betz came out on top, with the group of Jim Johnston, Dick Hodgston, Frank Punderson and Jim Rubright the runner-up. 
In last week’s Friday Evening Mixer the trio of Father Skip Baltz, Nicole Laberge and Bill Laberge emerged victorious, edging out the foursome of Beth Illick, John Illick, Jim Bryant and Joan Guertin.
