Jim Crandall, Palms to Pines Golf Association handicap chair, provided this report on the Friday, March 16, golf tournament:
The club held its regular monthly tournament at The Oak Valley Golf Club. It was so foggy in the morning that if you hit a good drive off the first tee, you couldn’t see where your ball landed. The fog lifted mid-morning, revealing a sunny, chilly day with light winds.
John McAndrews (course handicap 39) came in first with a net 69. Bill Ragland (15) took second with a net 72. between Robert Priefer (24) and Bill Sanborn (29) with net 74s tied for third, and John Brower (10) rounded out the top five with a net 76.
Of the four par 3 holes, the closest to the pin contest winners were Pete Capparelli on hole 3, Brower on hole 6, Bob Stearns on hole 11, and Crandall on hole 14.
Here are the year-to-date point standings for the 2011-2012 season:
|16 tied||Mona Gutierrez-Portales||1|
|18 tied||Dale Calderon||.5|
Points are awarded at each tournament.
The club is a member of the Southern California Golf Association and is sanctioned to establish SCGA handicaps for members.
