Scoring for Today

Fred Baldwin came up with a steady performance today to win not only the regular VGA event at Aguila but also finished off Rusty Silverman the once Golden Boy for the Champion of Champions final also played today. Albeit one stroke. Well done Fred and Rusty too. Mark Matthews actually tied Fred at 64 net but suffered the fate of the scorecard playoff and got 2nd place. Well played though Mark. Rusty came in tied at 65 net for 3rd place and beat out Margaret Storms and Doug Rankin on the scorecard playoff. Margaret and Doug did not go unrewarded however as they shared the much coveted Atta Girl or Boy in Doug’s case. Please remember the John Pierce Green Valley Open being placed this coming Thursday thru Sunday, no local VGA event is scheduled for this coming Saturday. Check with Rusty Silverman to see if he has any room left if you want to play it. Wednesday is Stonecreek be there.

Etched into the desert on pristine terrain in the heart of Phoenix, Stonecreek Golf Club’s magnificent par-71, 6,871-yard championship course was originally designed by Gary Grandstaff and Roy Dye, brother of the iconic Pete Dye and part of the Dye Designs dynasty. The course was subsequently re-designed by noted golf course architect Arthur Hills & Associates to modernize course infrastructure and bring it up to today’s standards while incorporating numerous environmentally-friendly maintenance and agronomy practices. The result is an adventurous, breathtaking links-style layout that has been rated four stars by Golf Digest. Mature trees frame emerald green Bermuda fairways and hilly, elevated greens, with creek beds meandering throughout the course and coming into play on five holes – adding to the course’s beauty as well as its strategic diversity. While challenging for scratch golfers, five sets of tees on each hole enable golfers of all ages and abilities to enjoy this picturesque desert golf gem, which features panoramic vistas of the Squaw Peak Mountains from every hole.
