A 2-man event was held at Graeagle Meadows Oct. 7 for the men’s golf club. The teams played net best ball on the front and scored both balls on the back. In first place we had Gary Kinkley and Ken Hattich who came in with a score of 100. In second, the team of Norm Nichols and Dennis Flynn shot a 104, while in third place was the team of Jim Reynolds and John Capdeville shooting a score of 106. There were 5 skins taken on that Wednesday; Ken Hattich took holes 1 and 2, both with a net 2, Wally Walker grabbed holes 3 and 5, with a score of 1 and 3 respectively, and Jim Reynolds took hole 11 with a 3.


The game Oct. 11th was a 2-man affair, being best ball, however each teammate needed to use their score 9 times. In first place the team of Chuck Hein and Jeff Monaghan shot a net score of 59. Second place was a tie between the teams of Grant Mayfield/Dennis Flynn and the team of Steve Harding/Norm Nichols, both shooting a score of 61. There were only two skins taken on Friday. Dan Anderson took one on hole 16 and Robert Davies with one on hole 8.

Quincy High Inaugural

Plumas Pines Golf Course in Blairsden will be the site for the first annual QHS Booster Club Golf Fundraiser on Saturday, Oct. 17. That’s right! A high school sports event, well, sort of. QHS staff, coaches, alumni, students, and friends of Quincy Athletics will gather on the golf course for a day of “fun and camaraderie.” The price for golf is $100 per person and includes tournament entry, driving range balls, contest holes, and lunch at the turn. There are numerous tournament sponsorships available to help offset the costs of the golf tournament. To participate, donate or ask questions, contact QHS Athletic Director Jason Hawkins (805) 280-2658 or email [email protected].
