A balmy 54 degrees with blustery breezes challenged 15 golfers from the Graeagle Men’s Golf Association and Plumas Pines Men’s Club on their second of several winter outings planned for upcoming weeks in Reno. Once again, low net and skins was the game at Sierra Sage Golf Course. Conditions were just as they liked it, thawed fairways and receptive greens.
Everyone this week played from the same gold tees making it one overall tournament. First place shooting a 79 with a net 67 was Jim Reynolds. There was a tie for second at net 68 with John Icanberry shooting a 91 and Gary Kinkley a 94. A special congratulations to Jim Reynolds, this being his second week winning first place.
There were four skins awarded, one each to Ron Eaton, Winston Giles, John Icanberry and Gary Kinkley.
While the weather forecast for next time doesn’t appear to be quite as accommodating, everyone remains optimistic for another fun-filled outing.

Mt. Huff Golf
Yes, we are still playing golf at Mt. Huff. Even though the day dawned with showers on Wednesday, Jan. 10, a brave contingent of 15 golfers showed up for the Scramble. As the play commenced the showers stopped and the sun came out. Mother Nature continues to smile on Mt. Huff.
In first place at 5-under-par was the team of Don McConnell, Margie Joseph and Mike Ingle.
The second place team came in at 3-under-par for Don Hubbell, Ralph Cote and Leo Sorosinski.
Jeff Stevens hit it closest to the pin, and both Don Hubbell and Margie Joseph nailed the chip-in.
We will continue to host the Wednesday Morning Scramble as long as the weather holds out. There is a benefit to living in the “banana belt” of Indian Valley.
As an added bonus, the Mt. Huff Grill is open once again and serving lunch, so if you’re hungry after a round, come on in.
