Jake’s take on sports

Langdon Country Club opens course; clubhouse to open Tuesday

Posted on 4/26/14

We have the happy news to report this week, as the Langdon Country Club has opened the course for the season.  It actually opened Easter Sunday, with many golfers enjoying that beautiful day out on the links.  The clubhouse is set to open April 29 for the first Tuesday Night Mens Stag of the season.  JoEllen Hanson will once again be managing the bar, while Theresa Valentine be running the kitchen.  And club president Jeff Fisk says the kitchen will be open this Tuesday with a limited menu. Curt Sando is grounds keeper for the course again this season, and while there have been some challenges to get the course ready (whoever thought it was a good idea to drive a snowmobile over three of the greens right after they were blown off with snow, Curt and all 400 club members would like to know), it is in decent early season shape.  A reminder that the club spring meeting is set for May 6 at 6:30 p.m., and sign up is continuing for both shifts of the Tuesday Night Men’s League Golf, make sure you call league secretary Randy Hill at 370-1118 to get your two man team registered. All in all it looks to be another fantastic year at the Langdon Country Club.

High school golf ready to begin a very short season

Langdon girls and boys golf is finally ready to get going for the season.  The season is going to be very short once again this year, as both teams will try a pack in seven meets between April 28 and May 12. The boys have six region meets in that time frame beginning April 29 in Cavalier, while the girls will try to get in seven region meets in starting April 28 in Larimore.  The boys also have a non-conference meet set for May 19 in Devils Lake.  Jenny Romfo is the head coach for both teams once again this season, with Lisa Karas and Connie Kjos on board this year as assistant coaches.  They are obviously are praying for a couple of weeks of great weather, and we hope they get that as well.  We be reporting on the teams results in the weeks ahead.

Track trying to get going as well

With the weather hopefully turning for the better for good in the days ahead, the Langdon track teams will very busy.  The Cards hosted (weather permitting) a meet for varsity and junior high, and they are also scheduled to host another varsity meet on Thursday, May 8.  They are scheduled for meets in Larimore, and Cavalier this week.  And of course the weather will determine those as well. Schedules change by the day for spring sports, so we encourage you to listen to Rich Rogers Langdon School Report Monday afternoons at 1:40 p.m. on KNDK 1080 for the latest changes.

Baseball/Softball Sign up Night April 30
