Down to our final tournament to determine TPC champion.

Men’s 18 Hole Club

By Glenn Martin

We are almost at the end of our 2017 Men’s 18-Hole Club season. We just finished our July tournament and have our 2 round August tournament next to close out our season. This will definitely come down to our final tournament to determine our first winner and 2017 TPC champion.
The turn-out for our tournaments has been great this year, thanks to our over worked and underpaid Tournament director Jeff Davis and the Dan Bartlett for the creation of our TPC Cup. I also want to thank all of our members for their support of this format, and all the fun and competitive golf that has been played this year. I am glad I took up this game when I retired, I’ve meet a lot of good people now I just have to find the fairway. Good luck on the rest of your season.
Scholarship Fund: Six candidates from Nevada Union High School applied for our scholarship this year. It was a tough decision and after all was considered, the scholarship was awarded to Nicholas Whittlesey. Nicholas will be attending Gonzaga University in the fall. Congratulations and good luck on your future efforts.

We had three new members attend this month’s Meet & Greet, put on by Dave Doench. These are very informative meetings for our newest members and help to bring them up to speed on our Men’s Club rules and tee time bookings.
Enjoy the rest of this summer and our 2017 golf season.
