The “Spring Pro Showdown,” a new format for the Palo Verde and Cottonwood Professionals’ competition/exhibition spring match, was held at the CWCC golf course at high noon on Tuesday, May 8, with a large flotilla of golf carts following the action!
The temperature was as hot as the action! (29 degrees warmer than last year’s event – I looked it up!)
The CW pros took the 3 vs. 3 match in a close finish, with PV’s Joey Forsythe winning the skins contest! Congratulations and thank you, gentlemen, for the entertainment!
On Thursday, April 12, and Saturday, April 14, a Home & Home series with SunBird CC was won by Don Hicks (PV) and Jim Davis (PV) and Gary Hall and Dan Carroll with a score of 205. The victory was aided by a hole-in-one by our very own 2018 president, Jim Davis!
An afternoon April 14, 2 Best Ball’s match was won by Jack Hill, Mike Rufert and Terry Cronin with a score of 109.
