The PebbleCreek Men’s Golf Association conducted its final major tournament for the 2017 season. The format for this three-day event was a four-man scramble where the members chose their own teammates. The tourney was held on December 7, 13 and 14.
The field, which consisted of 58 teams, was separated into six flights. Three flights played from the blue tees and three flights played from the white tees. The course rotation for the Blue Tee Flights was Eagles Nest, then Falls/Palms, then back to Eagles Nest. The rotation for the White Tee Flights was Falls/Palms, then Eagles Nest, then back to Falls/Palms. Strong winds challenged the players on the first day. The 8:30 a.m. shotgun start brought cool temps all three days.
After play on the final day, players gathered in the Tuscany Falls ballroom for lunch, beer and soda. A member meeting was held to vote on proposed bylaw changes. Prizes were awarded in each flight for Low Gross and Low Net (three places).
