REED CITY — Friday Night at Spring Valley Golf Course is a special time featuring the Couples League with the fun and friendship that comes with it.

Chuck Muir, one of the active members laughs that he plays “too much.”

He plays in the Monday Masters League, the Tuesday and Wednesday Men’s leagues and the Friday league.

Muir lives at Strawberry Lake near Evart.

“I play this one most of the time,” Muir said. “We go down occasionally to Katke in (Big Rapids).”

Muir’s wife played golf at one time but not presently. Muir pairs up with Kathy Gondick for couples league competition. Muir shoots around 40 for nine holes.

His favorite league is the Sunday Scramble.

“They draw names and they play with different people every week,” he said. “Everyone is nice. We have a lot of fun. There’s competitiveness in all the leagues. But the nice thing about the Sunday league, and the Monday and Tuesday league is anybody can win at anytime and it’s not the same people that win all the time because of the handicap.”

It’s his 12th year of play at Spring Valley.
