PCMGA conducts 2018 Summer Sizzler Tourney

Howie Tiger

The PebbleCreek Men’s Golf Association conducted its Summer Sizzler golf tournament on Wednesday, July 25 and Thursday, July 26. Early morning shotgun starts helped the players cope with searing temperatures. They played the Eagle’s Nest course on Wednesday and Tuscany Falls East (aka Falls/Palms) on Thursday. A total of 64 players participated in the event.

The format for both days was individual gross and net. Prizes were based on the total two-day score and awarded for two places for gross and six places for net in each of three flights. Two flights played from the blue tees and one flight played from the white tees. Most players also participated in the gross and net skins game paid separately for each day and flight.

Following play on Thursday, players were served hot dogs, beer and soda in the Chianti Room of the Tuscany Falls Clubhouse.

The scores were amazingly close with many ties or a one-shot difference!
