Individual honors went to: longest drive: Brenda Knott, member and Chellie Peterson, guest; closest to the pin: Brenda Knott, member and Debbie Cavin, guest; and most accurate drive: Brenda Knott, member and Rita Byorick, guest.
Only three players hit “Within the Circle” with a tough pin placement on the par three No. 16: Sharon Russell, member; Elsa Silbert, guest and Donna Sabatasso, guest.
Congratulations to the winners and to all 60 players who had a great time — the most important prize of all!
Tournament Chair Patty McNamara deserves special thanks for putting on such a fabulous event. Thanks also go to Manager Sharon Adams and her staff at The Lodge at Whitehawk for a delicious luncheon following the tournament. Head Pro Tad McCormick and Assistant Pro Jason Butler deserve kudos, as well, for the tournament running smoothly and for their enthusiasm in making sure all the ladies had fun!!
What a beautiful morning for the Mt. Huff Wednesday Morning Scramble! Aug. 29 dawned a bit smoky, but a brisk northeast wind quickly blew the smoke away and made it a great day for the golfers.
First place team in this competition brought the honors to Don Sheffield, Dick Grace, Loren Lindner and Jerry Hobbs.
In second place: the team of Ron Christensen, Ted Trafton, Gary Metzdorf and Leo Sorosinski.
Darel Joseph triumphed with the closest to the pin shot, and in a tie, Jerry Hobbs and Don Sheffield shared the victory of the chip-in contest.
Have a safe and fun Labor Day weekend. Hope you can make it out to the links for one, if not all, of the days!
The Golden Tomahawk Golf Tournament
The annual golf tournament between Plumas Pines Men’s Club and Graeagle Meadows Men’s Club ended for the first time ever in a perfect draw.
The men played the first 18 holes at Graeagle Meadows Golf Course, where the Graeagle Men’s Club took an impressive lead. This was going to be an easy win for Graeagle, but the wiser men said “Bring your ‘A’ game to tomorrow’s match at Plumas Pines.”
Well, somebody on the Plumas Pines Men’s Club must have said “Bring your “AA” game to tomorrow’s match at our home course.” And that is exactly what they did.
The Plumas Pines Men’s Club played very well that day. They won exactly the number of points to bring the 36-hole match to a draw.
It’s a good thing we are all friends and neighbors and can sit down together for a cold drink and great food — because that’s just what we did.
Take a close look at the accompanying photo to spot your favorite golfer. The trophy will be displayed at Plumas Pines for the next year, so go by and take a look at it. Next year’s match is sure to be equally exciting.
