Saturday, June 10,2017 / Palm Valley

Palm Valley Golf Club has two distinct 18-hole layouts, superb conditions, and complete practice and dining facilities make it a true gem of the West Valley and a must play destination for those visiting the Phoenix area. It’s a supreme challenge for the low handicap golfer yet forgiving for someone who wants an enjoyable experience regardless of the score. The Arthur Hills-designed Palms Course, a par-72 layout that covers 7,015 yards from the back tees, features one of the finest closing holes in the region — the par 5 18th with a lake on the left side of the fairway that wraps around a three-tiered green. The par-62 Lakes Course, designed by Hale Irwin, offers a shorter, quicker round of golf although no less of a challenge. The Lakes Course winds through the desert with many of its greens guarded by water. Palm Valley features a well-appointed golf shop, practice facility and the Fairway Grille, a full service bar and restaurant with several big-screen TVs plus a spacious patio offering spectacular views of the golf course and surrounding mountains. Palm Valley also is home of the Waterfront Pavilion, a popular venue for weddings, banquets and special events. Less than 20 miles west of downtown Phoenix, Palm Valley Golf Club is located in the heart of the West Valley’s top sports and entertainment venues at 2211 N Litchfield Rd, Goodyear, AZ 85395 — just minutes from University of Phoenix Stadium, Arena, Camelback Ranch (spring training home of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago White Sox), Goodyear Ballpark (spring training home of the Cincinnati Reds and Cleveland Indians) and Phoenix International Raceway.

Where is it found, and if you find it, can you use it? Where is that certain something that appears in a golfer’s game, then disappears, then returns again. Bursting forth like the Man of Steel. Unlikely, but Ron Amstutz smashed the field by 7 strokes at Palm Valley today with a pretty stunning 60 net. Oh, how the side pot gamblers must have moaned. Well done Ron, a most commendable round. To the others, very good golfers like Fred Baldwin and Jim Bays settled for a 67 net tie for second place. Fred got second on a  scorecard playoff and Jim Bays got third.  Another tie for the Atta-a-Boy at 68 net. The “Golden Boy” Rusty Silverman and Lloyd Snively shared that prize. Good work gents and atta a boy.  Next Wednesday we play Westin Kierland which I say,  “You do not want to miss”. Great facility, great course, and you will have a great time playing there I’m sure. See you there Wednesday. Rest of the fields scores are below.
