The PebbleCreek Men’s Golf Association annually conducts a two-man scramble event which serves a dual purpose. It is a regular men’s day tourney, but five teams also qualify to enter the Arizona Golf Association’s Club Team Championship. The tourney was played on Thursday, September 6 at Eagle’s Nest.
The senior qualifying teams (age 70+) advancing to the Regionals will play at Moon Valley Country Club on November 26. The other qualifying teams have a choice for the Regionals to play at either Wigwam (November 13) or at Moon Valley (November 26). The finals will be played at the Country Club at DC Ranch on December 10.
In this event two flights played from the blue tees and two senior flights played from the white tees. This was a form-your-own team event which required the two players to have no more than a 10-stroke handicap difference. A total of 40 teams participated.
