Dove Valley Ranch VGA Big Dog points winners for today’s event.
Dave Dean 1st place. Ed Chapman second place. Lyn Warder 3rd place. Unlike many of Arizona’s “target” golf courses, Dove Valley Ranch Golf Club is player-friendly, with manicured transition areas that allow its guests to recover without penalty. RTJ Jr. also put a premium on strategy and variety, which translates into a challenging yet refreshing round of golf. Factor in service that is second to none, and no wonder this lush layout on the outskirts of Phoenix is so popular with locals and visitors alike. Dave Dean at 67 net a winner by 6 strokes over the nearest competitor. Well done Dave. Ed Chapman out and taking the money again came in second place with a 73 net. Nice to see you back out Ed. Lyn Warder keeping the ladies in it for third place at 74 net. Good job Lyn. Steady Freddy Baldwin in for the Atta Boy at 75 net. Next Saturday it’s the TPC Champions course, don’t want to skip that one. Full Stats from VGA Golf Genius

TPC Scottsdale was the sixth club in the TPC Network, born from the dream of the PGA TOUR Commissioner Deane Beman. His vision was to create a network of clubs that would embody the TOUR’s rigorous quality standards, provide unparalleled venues for TOUR events, and further advance the PGA TOUR’s charitable contributions. In early 1986, the Phoenix Thunderbirds (host organization for the Phoenix Open) started looking for a new tournament site. Their intention was to grow the event, which was limited in size and number of spectators by its previous location, the Phoenix Country Club. Many locations in Phoenix were considered, but due to environmental issues, the Thunderbirds were running out of options. TOUR Commissioner Beman began assisting the Thunderbirds in identifying a new location when then Scottsdale Mayor, Herb Drinkwater, called with the perfect solution – he could secure land within the city of Scottsdale that would offer the ideal setting for a stadium-style course. So in cooperation with the Bureau of Reclamation, the City of Scottsdale, and the Phoenix Thunderbirds, the PGA TOUR moved the event to its new location ¬and named it Tournament Players Club of Scottsdale. TPC Scottsdale and The Stadium Course began construction in January 1986. The design team of renowned architects Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish was directed by Commissioner Beman to create a similar Stadium design like that at TPC Sawgrass – allowing all spectators a perfect view of the tournament.
