PCMGA members compete at Robson Cup Challenge

Howie Tiger

On Wednesday, November 14 fifteen members of the PebbleCreek Men’s Golf Association represented our community in the Robson Cup Challenge. This is an annual event that brings together golfers from four Robson communities including SaddleBrooke Ranch, Robson Ranch, Quail Creek and our very own PebbleCreek.

Each community sends 15 players and one golf professional to compete in this stroke play event. One of the main goals of this event is to offer the players a chance to meet fellow Robson community golfers, so each foursome is made up of one player from each of the four communities. The golf professionals also play together. The Robson Cup goes to the team with the lowest team score which is calculated by taking the lowest 12 scores of the 15-member team.

SaddleBrooke Ranch in Tucson hosted this year’s event. The course played around 6,000 yards from the combo tees and the temperatures hovered around 50 degrees. Individual prizes were awarded for low gross and low net scores. But the real prize is bragging rights for the winning community that gets to take home the Robson Cup!

PebbleCreek was represented by the following PCMGA members:

Bill Anderson, Bill Armstrong, Mike DerManuel, Mike English, Wayne Fleming, Kirk Harrison, Dave Hokaj, Skip Holmes, Charlie Kice, John McCrickard, Ray Measles, Jerry Monk, Dave Morse, Monte Page and PCMGA President Ed Stadjuhar.

Our GM, Bill Barnard, represented us as the golf professional.

The SaddleBrooke Ranch team took advantage of their host status and won the Robson Cup. PebbleCreek came in third with a team score of 958.

We fared better in the individual competition. Ray Measles took low net with a score of 62. Bill Barnard won the professional competition with a gross score of 75. Wayne Fleming took 4th low net with a score of 68. Kirk Harrison and John McCrickard tied for 7th low net with scores of 71.

Regarding the experience, Ed Stadjuhar said, “We were unmentionable as a team, but we sure looked great in our matching outfits!”

The PCMGA thanks its participating members for traveling to Tucson to honorably represent our organization and our community.

Many thanks also to Jason Slade of Legacy Financial for providing the matching shirts.

We’ll get ‘em next year!
