Jim Crandall, Palms to Pines Golf Association handicap chair, provided this report about the Friday, Jan. 15, monthly golf tournament, which was played at Oak Valley Golf Club in Beaumont.
It was a cold, cloudy, windy winter day, but the course was in good shape. This month, the tournament format was a four-man scramble.
In a scramble, each foursome plays as a team. Each person hits a drive, then the group selects the best drive, and everyone else picks up their balls and hits their second shot from that spot. The play continues like that until the ball is holed.
The one caveat is that a team has to use four drives from each team member, with two discretionary drives left over. This can make it difficult strategically, since the foursomes are made up of both low and high handicappers.
Each team is given a course handicap based on the team’s combined individual handicaps.
The team of Bob Baker (course handicap 34), Jim Crandall (14), David Hiemenz (42) and Dave Robb (15) took first place with a gross 72, net 68.
Second-place team was composed of Dale Calderon (42), Pete Capparelli (24), Ken Garelick (27) and Pete Holzman (11) with a gross 74, net 70.
Third place was captured by the team of Don DePalma (42), Tom Flanagan (34), Bill Ragland (20) and Barry Wallace (12) with a gross 77, net 72.
The closest-to-the-pin winners on the four par 3s were Robb on hole no. 6, Robert Priefer on hole no. 8, and Flanagan on both holes nos. 11 and 14.
Points for this scramble were awarded as follows: first place 3 points each; second place 2 points each; and third place 1 point each. And everyone who plays gets 0.5 points.
The 2015-2016 season runs from August 2015 through July 2016.
