Whitehawk Ranch Men’s Golf
On Sunday, June 18 (Father’s Day), the 3rd Annual “Battle of the Sexes” was contested at Whitehawk Ranch. This was the rubber match and the men were able to defend our crown. The competition was match play with each foursome comprised of two men and two ladies. Two individual matches and a better ball meant that six points were up for grabs in each foursome. The final tally was 27 to 21 with most contests going down to the wire. Thanks to our pro staff of head pro Tad McCormick and his assistants Randy Estep and Michael Reid for a well run event. A fine meal was served by MVP Marcie and staff. The Men’s Match Play Championship is underway with early rounds in progress.
