Wednesday, January 3rd, 2018 / Ocotillo

Rising out of the Arizona desert like an oasis, Ocotillo Golf Club is a golfer’s paradise. The course encompasses rolling hills lined by mature trees, colorful flower beds and all shapes and sizes of water hazards. An alternative to the desert-style golf so commonplace in the valley, this sanctuary-like course is also one of the best-maintained facilities in the Phoenix-Scottsdale area. Boasting a list of amenities normally found only at the finest private clubs and resorts, Ocotillo is recognized as one of the finest daily-fee facilities in the country. Serving as a qualifier course for PGA Tour events, Ocotillo routinely receives a four-star rating in Golf Digest’s annual guide. Ocotillo was also voted as one of the “Three Must-Play” courses in the valley – along with Troon North and the Boulders – in a recent Golf Digest Readers Poll.

Richard Brooks finished 1st today with 68 net. Back from his leg injury suffered at Kokopelli, he scored a nice win by one stroke over the two players that tied at 69 nets. Fred Baldwin scored 2nd place money on a scorecard playoff while Jeff Stone who tied him got a 3rd place via the scorecard playoff each had 69 nets for scores.  Larry Burton, Tom Willis, and Harley Ewing scored 74 net to tie for the Atta-A-Boy. No playoff needed. To view any the whole fields results, Click here anytime
