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.

Weather in Gilbert was cool and cloudy, can only assume the weather in Casa Grande was similar. The Legend adds to his feats that made him a legend, but it was too close. Danny Clark and Jeff Currie tied at net 68, but Jeff got 1st place on the scorecard playoff. Danny got 2nd. Ben Hughes and Danny Campos tied at 69 net for 3rd place and Ben won it on the scorecard playoff. Unfortunately for Ben we didn’t have enough players to pay out any third place money. Bummer for Ben. Danny Campos was left with the Atta-a-Boy. Neither player I’m sure was amused. Big question of the week, “will the Legend play the Legend @ Arrowhead coming up this Wednesday”. We’ll see, eh? Rest of the field scoring below.
