Saturday, December 31, 2016 / Falcon Dunes and Happy New Year.

Falcon Golf Club opened for play in 1997 and quickly became a valley favorite for first class public golf at affordable golf rates. Brian Curley of Landmark Golf Company designed Falcon Golf Club. Majestically nestled around the Estrella & White Tank Mountains, the front nine is target style with desert like conditions and the back nine is more traditional with bunkers, water, and trees separating the fairways and greens. The golf course plays at 6733 yards from the back tees with par of 71. Falcon Golf Club has been known for having greens and fairways in great condition. Falcon is a great venue for tournaments because the golf course is playable for the beginning golfer yet challenging for the advanced golfer.

It appeared it might be another raining and blowing day out there today, but apparently not. Tony said it rained a little around tee off time then quit and didn’t rain again during the event. Bet against rain in AZ and you’re a winner most of the time. By all reports the Falcon Dunes track is a great one so be sure to play it when you get a chance. Who is this guy Al Dan? He won another one. Today he got 1st place money with a 67 net, and well done Al. 2nd place went to Kevin Gilmore at 69 net and 3rd place went to the Golden Lad from PV, Rusty Silverman at 70 net.

The Legacy Golf Club, rich in heritage and history, is an 18-hole par 71 championship golf course designed by renowned golf course architect Gary Panks. Located on what was once Dwight B. Heard’s 7,500-acre ranch, the golf club is rich in Arizona heritage and history. Taking great pride in preserving and integrating many of the historical structures and monuments, our 18-hole championship golf course offers a unique look and an added opportunity to experience some Arizona history and of the Heard legacy, from which the golf club takes its name. The original two-grain silos, built in 1902, still remain along the 18th fairway and were once the tallest structures in Maricopa County. The Sierra Vista House, which marks the 1st tee, was visited on occasion in the early 1900’s by Theodore Roosevelt and Pancho Villa. Come make your own history at the Legacy Golf Club!
