4 The Glenvflle Democrat/ Pathfinder September 30, 1976 Golf course gets face-lifting Largest of the two waterholes being constructed at Gienvllle Golf Club course is located in front of the 7th tee. A tighter, more attractive and possibly more diffcult Glenville golf course with two waterholes and new and enlarged tees neared completion last week. The popular nine-hole course has undergone a major restoration supervised by Dick White of Glenville. The most noticeable change is the addition of two ponds designed and planned by the Soil Conservation Service, headed locally by Junior Kennedy. Victor Kirkpatrick and lira Shacldeford did the actual excavation work. The first and smaller of the two ponds is located in front of the third tee and will, says White. tend to keep golfers driving for the third hole in the fairway. The second pond. about l/4-acre in size, is in front of the number seven tee and will be an obstacle mainly for golfers driving from the number eight tee and for the second shot for the sixth hole. "We hope to be able to stock this pond with fish." White notes. Both ponds will be fed by wet weather springs. These and run-off is the area will be ample enough to fill them both, White said. Spillways and backfill for the ponds have been seeded. The waterholes, plus pine trees that were transplanted to line all the fairways, and six sand traps, make the course considerably tighter, White pointed out. "We started transplanting the trees last May and so far have lost only one," he said. The trees were transplanted from a hillside in the rough on the course. Duffy Collins, Jack Luzader and Doug Skinner have been busy enlarging and seeding all the tees on the course and building new tees for women golfers. Topsoil for the tees came from the pond excavation sites. "We&apos;re trying a new variety of grass," White said last week. Called "fylking" bluegrass, it is disease resistant, spreads easily and will withstand close cutting better than other varieties," White explained. "We used a mixture of 50 percent bluegrass and 50 percent hybird perennial rye grass." If the new bluegrass takes hold it eventually will replace the rye. All greens on the course have been restored, too, White pointed out. The golf course face-lifting, plus a new work cart that will be used in green and tee maintenance work. was funded with $5.000 budgeted by the Gilmer County Court for Parks and Recreation and with money from the Golf Club's general fund. The new work cart has been ordered and George Adrian deliverery is expected any time. To make the golf course Exclusive Representative at TROY, W.

Both area football teams traveled out of the county last week, and both suffered defeat-Glenville State College at the hands of Salem College and Gilmer County High at Doddridge Count. A powerful Salem squad rolled up an impressive 520 yards total offense to maul the GSC Pioneers 35 to 3 under lights last Saturday night. Salem aerials accounted for only 62 yards while their runners rolled up a whopping 458 yards on the ground. Glenville picked up only 229 yards with 173 of those coming through the air. Lee Hedges, the previous week's WVIAC Player-or-the-Week was held " ' r  : " to only 58 yards rushing in 17 carries "Let's flip by Salem's league-loading rushing for defense. . Salem s Larry Riley garnered the lion s share of his team's offensive efforts by scoring two touchdowns on runs of 78 and 11 yards, and by rushing for a total of 186. Running mate Rich Anderson totaled 168 yards in II carries. Glenville's only score came in the first period of play on a 44-yard field goal by Kirk Kresowaty. The night before at Doddridge County, also under lights, the Gilmer County High School Titans were shut out 27-09 by a strong Bulldog team now ranked first in the state's Class A ratings. Gilmer could muster only 61 yards on the ground and 44 via the aerial route while Deddridge rolled up 183 yards running and 102 passing. A determined Titan defense throttled the Bulldog offense in the first quarter, but then gave up two TD's before the half. Doddridge scored again once in the third stanza and once in the final period play.
