Jim Crandall, Palms to Pines Golf Association handicap chair, provided this report about the Friday, Dec. 9, monthly golf tournament held at Palm Desert Resort Country Club.

It was a perfect fall day in the desert with mild temps, and the course was in good shape.

Lee Lanfried, (course handicap 24) took first place with a net 72; Pete Holzman (15) took second with a net 73; John Newman (22) took third with a net 75; and Gary Brown (14) and Crandall (12) tied for fourth with net 77s to round out the top five finishers.

The closest to the pin winners on the four par 3 holes were Brown on holes no. 4 and 6, Crandall on hole no. 12, and Lanfried on hole no. 16.
