Tacos, burritos, beer and soda were provided in the Tuscany Falls Ballroom after play. The PCMGA Most Improved Player for 2018 was announced. Scoring was done using Golf Genius. Each foursome was required to input their score hole-by-hole either while playing or by end of play. The Leaderboard was available for display once all teams input was complete. Using Golf Genius provided final results almost immediately instead of taking 45 minutes to an hour to complete.
Thanks to the greens-keeping staff for providing great playing conditions.
Prizes were awarded to the top six blue flight teams and top seven white flight teams. Congrats to all the winners!
