Even the ARMY makes time for golf

In October Larry Jackson and James Gilbert from FORT JACKSON, SC took 2nd place at the Annual Carolinas PGA Golf League Championship at the Tobacco Road Golf Club in Sanford, NC.

Both Soldiers from the 2nd Battalion, 39th Infantry Regiment agreed that the par-71, 6,500-yard course was one of the most challenging golf courses that they have ever played.

They went on to say that they could not have played well without the support of their Cadre and their comrades in the Battalion.

Golf Digest named the Tobacco Road Golf Club as one of the top ten toughest golf courses in the United States in 2007.

This was the first time that members of the Fort Jackson intramural golf teams had the opportunity to participate in the tournament.

Gilbert and Jackson were accompanied by three other teams the "Heavy Hitters", the "Sandbaggers", and the "165th Infantry Brigade". The Heavy Hitters placed fifth, the Sandbaggers placed 13th, and the 165th placed 15th.

"The intramural league decided to join the Carolinas Golf League as an incentive to draw more Soldiers and civilians to join the intramural league on post," said Cindi Keene, the intramural sports coordinator at Fort Jackson.

This just goes to show you that even the ARMY makes time for golf! No more excuses! Get out of the office and on to the golf course. Life will be more enjoyable and a lot less stressful, unless you have a high handicap of course...
