PVMGA – April results

Bob Armstrong, Publicity

So on Tuesday, May 3, members and guests were treated to the Cottonwood/Palo Verde Spring Assistant Pro Skins Game, this time held at the CWCC course! We watched in awe as balls literally disappeared on their way down the fairways and approach shots mostly found their targets. Maybe a lesson or two would help us. (For help call 480-895-0300 and ask our friendly professionals).

Thanks for the entertainment gentlemen!

On April 16, a Member-Member Select-a-Drive contest was held, followed by a luncheon. Flight 1 winners were Jim Wedeward/Don Grosshart and Bill Greer/Jerry Cisneros, while Flight 2 was won by Ron Crabtree/Dave Holaday.

April 23 and 24 saw the 2016 CMGA/PVMGA Ryder Cup battle played out at the CWCC and PVCC courses respectively. Cottonwood narrowly succeeded in besting Palo Verde – winning nine matches to eight by PV; five matches ended with ties!

Congratulations to all participants for their stellar play!

An April 30 Shootout was won by Bud Murray, followed by Dick Howell, Ron Cox and Jack Hill.

April 30 also saw the beginning of Match Play, which will continue past the deadline for this issue of the Splash!

A Saturday afternoon Scramble on May 7 was won with a score of 39-3/4 by the foursome of Vic Lesch, Dan Eisenzimmer, Tom Tagatz and Jim Berreth.
