Jim Crandall, Palms to Pines Golf Association handicap chair, provided this report about the association’s regular monthly tourney in October and the club championship match of its year-end playoffs.

Idyllwild’s Palms to Pines Golf Association held its regular monthly tourney on Friday, Oct. 27, at the Lakes course at Menifee Lakes Golf Course.

Pete Capparelli is the 2017 Club Champion of the Palms to Pines Golf Association. He beat Jim Crandall in the final round of playoffs a week prior to the regular monthly tourney. Capparelli will represent the club in the Southern California Tournament of Club Champions in December, competing against club champs from throughout the SoCal region.

Crandall and Capparelli delayed their match because it had been scheduled for the same Friday as the memorial service in Riverside for long-time P2P member John LoGiudice, who unexpectedly fell victim to pancreatic cancer, a fast-moving illness with little hope for cure.

In the regular club tourney, there was a three-way tie for first place. Ken Garelick (course handicap 24), Pete Holzman (14) and Scott Schroeder (20) all netted 69s for the top score that day.

Coincidently, there was also a three-way tie for fourth place: Mike Brown (18), John King (24) and Bob Wadlow (15) all finished with a net 71.

The winners of the closest-to-the-pin contests on the four par 3s were Schroeder on hole no. 3, Jeff White on hole no. 8,  Barry Wallace on hole no. 13 and Garelick on no. 17.

After three tournaments for the 2017-18 season, here are the current point standings for the club championship playoffs for the new season, which runs from August  2017 through July 2018:
