St. George’s, Northwest Christian golf teams engage in putt-putt to shake winter blues

What to prep golf teams do with area courses still covered by snow?

Take to the closest indoor putt-putt course, of course.

The St. George’s and Northwest Christian boys and girls teams decided to shake the winter blues on the first day of spring on Wednesday and met at Wonderland Family Fun Center in north Spokane in an epic putt-putt match.

The teams went with a head-to-head match play competition with 14 matches played.

Northwest Christian prevailed 7 1/2 to 6 1/2, but the scores were the least of anyone’s concerns really.

“It was a lot of fun and way better than hitting balls into a net, putting around the hallways of the high school or hitting wedges into the snow around campus,” St. George’s coach Brad Kirsch said.

The St. George’s girls led the way for the Dragons as Alli Dixon, Maddy Christiansen and Liv Senske won all three of their matches. Northwest Christian won most of the boys matches, led by Levi Veenstra and Jack Muncey.

With daytime temperatures expected to remain in the mid 50s for the next week, teams are hopeful to begin play after spring break the first week of April.
