Eighteen players signed up to play two man best ball on July 5. Winning scores were low, with the team of Tom Taylor and Norm Nichols taking first place with a net 60. Following close behind with a net 62 in second place was the team of Grant Mayfield and Bert Bellows. Finishing third at 63 were Dennis Chegwin and Bob Davies. Skins were also a part of the game, four of them awarded with one each to Grant Mayfield, Norm Nichols, Dave Lisi and Bert Bellows. It was a good turnout considering it was the holiday weekend.
Moving on to Wednesday, July 10, 22 members made their way to the course. The game was a little more complicated, but much more interesting from the members perspective. Sometimes called Lone Wolf, the rules stipulated each four-man team would compete with “in the box” along with one best score to be added to the net score of whomever was “in the box.”
Taking first place with a net score of 129 was the team of Norm Miller, Darrel Woods, Dan Anderson, and Chuck Franck. Second place was recognized at 130 points by the team of Jim Reynolds, Norm Nichols, Chuck Weidner, and Leo Reihsen. As always, skins were included in the competition, this time nine were acknowledged, one each to Leo Reihsen, Bob Davies, Chuck Weidner, Ron Eaton, Dan Anderson, Gene Carr, John Sciborski, and Norm Nichols winning two skins.
Next week’s report is scheduled to include results from the July 14 Jack and Jill Couple’s tournament.
Meanwhile, group representatives state plans are coming together nicely for the 48th annual Member/Guest Invitational tournament to be played Aug. 9 and 10. The two-day event is the highlight of the year as the Graeagle Men’s Golf Club closes in on the 50th anniversary of the founding of the club.
Parties interested to join in the fun can contact the group or chairman Jeff Monaghan at [email protected]. The format is best ball with four-man teams. The group prefers to have at least one member of the team be a GMGA member. Accommodations can be made for singles, two or threesomes.

The Safari began on Wednesday afternoon with a challenging putting contest (lions and tigers and bears, oh my), pluscheck-in and libations. “GMWGC thanks the many participants who brought canned food donations for the Eastern Plumas Community Action Network (EPCAN Food Bank),” said Miller.

“On Monday evening, July 8, the Whitehawk Ranch ladies golf group had their annual Member-Member “pairings party” at Captain Marcia Zeigler’s beautiful home; situated on the second tee overlooking the pond,” said Laura McKenzie. “It was a gab-fest along with a feast of appetizers, salads and desserts; plus Earl Zeigler’s famous Margaritas.” Along with Earl, Ken Hyatt and Terry McKenzie bartended and waited tables for the ladies.
The eight teams for Tuesday’s competition were randomly selected by the eight lowest handicap players picking their partner from a bowl with names of the eight higher handicap players. Teams chosen were: Michele Violett/Chris Hyatt (defending Gross Champs), JoAnn West/Denise Stein, Patty McNamara/Pam Cummings, Barbara Competello/MaryAnn Crowe, Cynthia Thomas/Ann Verutti, Susan Erne/Leslie Curry, Dottie Hattich/Katy Magliano, and Laurie McKenzie/Cheryl Turkstra.
Tuesday’s Member-Member Tournament (Better Ball of Partners on the front nine and modified Chapman on holes 10-18) was really fun with great weather, lots of camaraderie, laughs, and good (with some not so good) golf shots. Captain Marcia Zeigler followed the teams around the course with her camera, taking candid shots of the players and the gorgeous scenery.
The First Net Winners were Laurie McKenzie/Cheryl Turkstra (59); with Cheryl having her best nine ever (49). Second Net went to Dottie Hattich/Katy Magliano (64). “Katy is just back to playing golf after at least three hand surgeries — welcome back Katy!” said McKenzie.
The First Gross Winners were Michele Violett/Chris Hyatt (78); followed by Second Gross Winners JoAnn West/Denise Stein (84).
Marcie, with helpers Kellie and Rachel, orchestrated an Asian-themed lunch with wonderful decorations. “We all look forward to this fun event every year! Happy golfing,” said McKenzie.
