Saturday, December 9th, 2017 / Francisco Grande

Francisco Grande, the legendary Arizona golf resort, is located halfway between Phoenix and Tucson and is just 45 minutes from the Phoenix airport and an hour drive from Scottsdale. The Francisco Grande Hotel & Golf Resort offers its guests luxury accommodations in the Tower, superb food, outstanding golf, and excellent value. This traditional 7400 yard Arizona golf course is one of the most historic in the Southwest and is overseeded every winter and has over 1500 mature trees and three lakes in a parkland setting. The Arizona Hotel & Golf Resort has recently undergone an $ 8 million renovation of its hotel rooms and suites, including the golf course and all its dining and meeting facilities. Out of the 101 guest rooms, 64 are in our tower, including spacious suites overlooking our golf course and pool area. Every guest room in the tower is oversized and has a large, inviting balcony with expansive views of the golf course and the mountains in the distance. The resort’s restaurants and watering holes provide a variety of casual and upscale dining and entertainment options.
Rusty Silverman “The Golden Boy”

The Golden Boy from PVAZ steps up again and takes the Francisco Grande event today with a scorecard playoff win over the Legend Daniel Clark. Both tied at 67 nets. Rusty also moved up to 1st place in the Saturday Big Dog competition as he moved past John Adair. In the third spot, Gordon Lukert took it with a one stroke off the pace 68 net. Hope you won at Snake as it appears the money ran out before it got to you. Well done, however. Tim Haight at 69 net scored the Atta-A-Boy.
