The annual PebbleCreek Men’s Golf Association (PCMGA) Member-Member tourney was played on March 16, 18, and 23 using all three of our courses. A total of 122 two-man teams competed in 10 flights. Each team member was able to play from their selected choice of tees (Blue, Blue/White, White, or White/Red).

Scramble was the format for round one. One best-ball net was the format for round two. The format for the third and final round was a two net-aggregate. Flights 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 played the Eagle’s Nest/Tuscany Falls West/Tuscany Falls East rotation. Flights 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10 played the Tuscany Falls East/Eagle’s Nest/Tuscany Falls West rotation.

Each playing member received a PCMGA logo Greg Norman shirt as a tee gift. Lunch and drinks were provided in the Tuscany Falls Ballroom following play after the final round.

The annual PCMGA member meeting was held and several announcements were made. Officers for the 2023-24 season were elected. Congratulations to Jack Stipp (president), Kurt Eleam (vice president), Joe Grande (secretary), and Roger Douglas (treasurer). They take office on June 1.

Special thanks to our outgoing president, John Abercrombie, who has served for seven consecutive years on the PCMGA Board either as an officer or social events chairman!
