Graeagle Meadows men
It was a busy week for all kinds of golf happenings on the course at Graeagle Meadows since we last reported. There was a great turnout July 12 with 20 players signed up to play low net plus skins. Everyone shot from the combo tees this time, as opposed to sometimes a group called “The Bandits” going for all 6,000 plus yards from the white tees. There was a tie for first place with a low net 64 shot by Aubrey Neish and Jim Reynolds. Second, with 65, was Leo Reihsen, and finally, with another tie, Chuck Pratt and Tom Taylor, both shooting 67 for third place. Five skins were recorded, two won by Chuck Pratt and one each to Jim Oster, Bob McIlroy, and invited guest, Bill Bales.
The annual Jack and Jill Couples Tournament was held July 14. Scotch Chapman was the format where both players on the team hit drives. Each plays the other’s ball for the second shot; the best of the second shots is selected, and from there the two partners play alternate shots into the hole. Taking first, with a net 64, was the team of Dan Friedman and Priscilla Piper. In second, Jim and Bev Reynolds scored a 68, while John and Sharla Scott came in third with net 71. After golf, everyone enjoyed a Tri-Tip BBQ dinner prepared by the club’s grill team headed by John Grasso.
Following the weekend, the GMGA Travel Team hosted the Diamond Mountain Men’s Golf Travel Team for match play competition at Graeagle Meadows. Travel teams from Graeagle, Plumas Pines, Fernley GC, Washoe GC and Diamond Mountain Susanville, compete for maximum match play score points over the course of the season. It’s usually a tight race right up until the last month of competition. It’s rumored Graeagle outscored Diamond Mountain in Tuesday’s play.
July 17 featured a regular play day for the club. Nineteen members signed up to play Two Man Better Ball. The game name is self-explanatory with the caveat that each team member must use nine scores.
First place with a net score of 67 was the team of Bob Davies and Norm Nichols. In second, Jim Oster and Leo Reihsen had a 61, while Grant Mayfield and Aubrey Neish finished third at 63. Four skins were taken, Norm Nichols with two while Leo Reihsen and Bob Davies each had one.
