Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 27, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta J4 THE UTHBRIDGE HSRALO Friday, April 27, 1773 I- Englehart club pro., Cairns president SULLY SAYS L Pat sultan Year of changes at Country Club course PHILADELPHIA F J y e r s had a plain and simple motto they followed during the 1972-73 National Hockey League season: "Let us take the .shortest route to the puck-carrier and arrive in ill humor." During the NHL season and the playoffs, the Flyers obey- ed Fred Shero's command- ments to a tec. but ignored most of the 10 Moses distri- buted. Coach Shero's gang of Fly- ers' ill-humored arrivals pro- voked minutes in penal- ties, a league record for law- lessness. If their assaults had taken place in the streets instead of in Clarence Campbell's rinks, A great deal of credit must go to coach Shero. It is sneer genius that the man did so well with so lictle talent. You can agree with me or not, but Bobby Clarke is the only player on the Flyers who could make the Montreal Ca- nadiens. Bill Barber will ma- ture and be a star in his own right in a year or two, but that's as far as it goes. Only in the first game, which I missed, did the Fly- ers put together better than '60 minutes of hockey. It's no they were ousted 4-1 in the best-of-seven semi fi- nal. Some of the psychology the Flyers used "in an attempt to upset the Canadians amazed "me. Their scare tactics lasted into the second period of the second game. When Serge Savard, despite the fact he lost, stood up and exchanged .blows with Schultz, the Fly- ers' days were numbered. The coup de grace came when Pi- erre Bouchard decisioned The Flyers, as they are now, are a long ways from. being in the same class as the -Canadiens, regardless of what -some people think. I have to believe the Buf- 'falo Sabres are a better all round hockey club. But, regardless of what .team is better, the Flyers -have done something no oth- Cer Philadelphia aggregation -has been able to do. they Thave gotten the people in the "City of Brotherly love" to .like them. I When the Flyers skated "onto the ice in the fourth ;game they were accorded a the faces of Dave Schultz, Bob Kelly, Andre Dupont and Don Sateski would grace wanted posters in the local postoffice. Each of the four members of the "Mad Squad" account- ed f o r 200 minutes. Schultz was the most notorious with 259 minutes, 33 minutes short of an all-time NHL record. The Flyers were described as dragons breathing fire in orange and black uniforms. But the fire has now been put out for good. Oh, I'm sure they will be back next year to claim their rightful place among the teams in the west division. But for now, they are on the outside looking in.

The embarrassment of their fisiic frustration came in the final game when Dupont ju m p e d Peter Mahovlich from behind. An accumulation of lost battles led to their downfall in the war. Flyers were guilty of allow- ing themselves the false pre- tence of being able to skate with the Canadiens. They only- fooled themselves. When their big guns, Clarke, Barber and Rick M a c L i e s h, were stymied there was no one to take up the slack. How could you expect Schultz (9 Saleski (12 Kelly (14 goals) and Dupont (4 goals) to turn the tide? Well, it didn't happen, and it didn't surprise me. standing ovation. The ovation wasn't even that long when the declaration of indepen- dence was signed. These were the same peo- ple who had booed Wilt Chamberlain. Dick Allen and Norm Snead out of Philadel- phia. It will be a test for Philadel- phia fans as to just how long their loyalty will last. The Flyers won't win the Stanley Cup next year and maybe not for a number of years to come. Some people seem to think Philadelphia fars have learn- ed a lesson. It wiE be inter- esting to see. By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor About the only thing fam- iliar about the Lethbridge Country Club Golf Course, is the course itself. This 1973 golf season, which is slowly moving into high gear, can only be described as "the year of the change'" at the Country Club. The same familiar faces grace the course and the clubhouse, but that's where familiarity ends. For the 1973 golf season, tre Coulee Club has a new president, club professional and manager. All three, in full agreement, feel 1973 will be a big year for the Country Club and its 280 members. Optimism is boiling over at the Country Club to say the least. Sharing the responsibility in the success of the club for 1973 are president Dr. Ed Cairns, club manager Don Lymburner and professional Ed Englehart. Englehart, whu will receive a great deal of help from John Coultice. has bsen a golf professional for eight years and looks to his new position as one of challenge. Not many changes are needed in an operation that has over the years been a successful one. However, the board of dir- ectors of the Country Club are even more enthusiastic this year. It just may be that the current nine-hole lay- out will become an 18-hole course giving Lethb-idge two excellent 18-hole tests of golf. "We have 18 holes says Englehart. What the professional meant, was that using alternate tee boxes you can actually play 13 holes. But it is not the same as 18 holes, all different. A committee made up oC Country Club members is currently working on a deal with the city for land to ex- tend the course. The Country Club has the necessary land at present but the city owns land more suitable for expansion. One problem, at present not of serious proportons, is the erosion of the land that runs parallel with the ninth hole. "Right now, it's states Englehart "but if it was to get any worse it could ruin the hole completely." At present, it confronts the golfer with a challenge. If you have a slice, it is built for you but don't hook a shot or your Titleist becomes fish food. There is a chance that the river could be diverted to avoid any more erosion but that is yet another situation that will take time to rem- edy. While a great deal of at- tention is focused on adult golfers Englehart made it clear he is all for an exten- sive junior program. After all, he agrees, this is where the golfers come from for the future. Englehart has been kicking an idea around in his head that could bring about an ex- cellent junior golf program for the city. "I haven't talked to Earl Francis (Henderson Lake professional) about it says Englehart. "But I would like to see cossiblv an inter- club competition for juniors." It is a well-known fact that officials at the Lake are plan- Golf league Englehart and friends LAKESIDE MEN'S Low net Frank Sowka, Ace Building 33; Ron Bruchet, CHEC 33.

Englehart, who looks to the 1973 golf season with a great deal of enthusiasm, to encourage more junior golfers to use the Coulee Layout. ning an extensive junior golf program this year and the idea of the league would fit right in. Englehart is planning a number of clinics for junior golfers free of charge. He will get help from the wom- en's section of the club. The Country Club also wel- comes juniors whose parents do not belong to the club. Any boy, 19 or under, is invited to golf for a year on a restricted tee-time basis. While the Country Club is basically a private club, green-fee players are wel- come should they be out of town visitors. Lymburner, who spent last year at Fairmont Hot Springs, also has a full slate of activities planned for the members for the coming year. What with 110 new spruce trees planted on the course and all new traps, 1973 should, indeed, be a big year at the Country Club. DR.
