The PebbleCreek Men’s Golf Association (PCMGA) annually conducts a two-man scramble event which serves a dual purpose. It is a regular men’s day tourney, but six teams also qualify to enter the Arizona Golf Association’s (AGA) Club Team Championship. The tourney was played on Thursday, Sept. 1, at Eagle’s Nest Golf Course.
In this event 20 teams in the Gross/Net flight played from the blue tees and 24 teams in the Super Senior flight (age 70+) played from the white tees. This was a form-your-own team event. Team handicaps were calculated by adding 35% of the A player’s handicap to 15% of the B player’s handicap.
The teams that qualified to move on to the AGA Club Team Championship Regionals were offered a choice of where to play: The Views Golf Club (Tucson—Gross/Net & Super Seniors) on Nov. 6, Coldwater Golf Club (Avondale—Gross/Net & Super Seniors) on Nov. 15, Oakwood Golf Club (Sun Lakes-Gross/Net only) on Nov. 20, or Western Skies Golf Club (Chandler—Gross/Net only) on Nov. 29. The Finals will be played at Corte Bella (Sun City West) on Dec. 13.
