Faith Lutheran of Marshfield recently held a golf
outing for fellowship and fund raising for Stand With
Africa. Prizes were donated and funds were raised with
various "optional" purchases by the golfers such as The
"Lutheran Rosary" (file
attached)and "Born Agains" (compare to "Mulligans").
As part of the education/fund raising dimenstion, there was
a "quiz question" at each hole, with questions pertaining to
our benevolence for the world's hungry or about biblical
texts dealing with food. Prize for the winners of the
quiz was a home-made apple pie! Thanks to Cheryl
Ashbeck, Katie Muschinske and Nancy Young for submitting the
ideas. They can be contacted via Faith Lutheran Church

A ROSARY FOR
THE LUTHERAN GOLFER [ TOP
Putt by faith
Most lost balls by a player
The 4 foot "Rosary for the Lutheran Golfer" (RLG) that is
enclosed can aid your team to improve the lie of your ball
or possibly even improve your score. Here are a couple of
You may use your RLG all at once or in several small
increments, that's up to your team. Be careful & use
your best judgement! Once the entire length of your RLG has
been used, its ability to redeem you is depleted.
- If your ball is lodged under a tree & is not
playable, you can use the RLG to move the ball into a
playable position and not be charged a penalty stroke.
You move your ball 18 inches and now you have an
unrestricted swing. You must then cut from your RLG the
length of the distance you moved your ball.
- If you leave a putt short (6 inches) or blast it long
(2 feet), you may cut from your RLG the distance to the
hole & then the putt counts with out adding an
- If you are in the rough & would like to have a
better lie, use your RLG to move the ball into the
fairway (or on to the green) without counting an
additional stroke. Remember to cut the length equal to
the distance from your RLG.
Pray before you begin, have a great time!

A scramble means that all four team members tee off on
each hole and then decide which tee shot they like the best
and mark the spot with a tee or ball marker.
1. The other team members pick up their balls
and place them within one club length (no closer to the
hole) of the marked spot. Each team member hits their
next shot from the chosen spot of the prior shot.
2. This procedure is followed on every shot for the
remainder of the hole, including putts. The ball should
be marked on the putting green also.
3. Putts need to be made within 3 inches of the marked
spot (no closer to the hole). The first ball to go in the
hole is counted for the team score.
4. If the ball you choose to play is in a hazard
(sand, water, etc.), the rough, or out of bounds, you can
not drop the ball outside of the hazard or rough even if
relief is within one club length away.
5. Each team must use at least one of each team
members tee shots on each nine (minimum two tee shots per
6. Men tee off from the white tees and women and youth
from the red tees.
1. Please smooth all marks made in Sand Bunkers.
2. Leave the putting green as soon as you have holed
3. Do not play until the players in front of you are
out of range.
4. Balls may be cleaned on the green, and ball marks
repaired prior to putting. You may not repair spike marks
prior to putting.
5. Please observe all local course rules.
6. Enjoy the day and your fellowship with other
