As the record Arizona summer temperatures continued throughout the area, Palo Verde Men’s Golf Association play continued through September with five weeks of competitive play and the ending of our 2022-23 calendar of play. October saw the overseeding of the Palo Verde course and a nice break from the hot temperatures and competitive play. Hopefully, cooler temperatures will be with us in November.
