Graeagle Meadows Men
Oct. 25 was a blustery day but the men of GMGA persevered for their Friday play. The game was Low Net and the victor was Steve Harding, who shot a 64. Second place was a tie between Ron Eaton and Norm Nichols, who both shot 66s.
There were a total of seven skins won with Steve Harding taking one on hole 3, Grant Mayfield taking one on hole 5, Norm Nichols taking one on hole 6, Dave Dierking taking one on hole 18 and Ron Eaton took 3 by besting on holes 9, 14 and 17.
The game was two-man better ball Oct. 29 and there was a chill in the air. For this competition, first-place went to the team of Franck & Eaton, who shot a score of 60, while second place was taken by the team of Woods & McIlroy, who shot a 63.
Three skins were taken with Nichols taking hole 5, Franck taking hole 6 and Eaton taking hole 12.

Plumas Pines men
The last event for the Plumas Pines Men’s Club for the year was its annual Monster Golf Tournament, played Oct. 24. The course has been redesigned so that a totally different course has emerged with new obstacles and new challenges. The course has developed over the years with contributions from Kim Roberts, Roger Nielsen and Paul Jeglum and now is comprised of a full 18 holes, par 73.
For example, the first hole tee is on the old helipad, where weddings are now held next to the 18th green. The tee shot is off a 30-foot cliff, over the ninth fairway onto the driving range. The next shot traverses the driving range over the regular third hole tee box, down a hill towards the river to the regular second green. Probably the hardest hole starts on the regular eighth hole tee and finishes on the regular ninth green. This requires a blind second shot over 130 yards of thick willow bushes that gobble up the balls of those who are not bold.
This year the event drew over 40 players, including groups from outside the Mens Club and one group of women. Other than a significant investment in lost golf balls, a good time was enjoyed by all participants. Everyone finished with at least one story about how they had the perfect shot but for the tree that got in the way or the lake they could not see. Winners of the event were Arvo Volp, James Greenwald, Marvin Pierce and Richard Eck.
