Wednesday, November 15th, 2017 / Verrado-Victory

The Victory Course is unlike any you’ve played. First off, the setting is stunning: wide swaths of green fairways set beneath towering rock faces. Giant granite boulders dot the high desert landscape. And the dramatic backdrop of the White Tank Mountains reminds us why we live here. Also set within the tranquil canyons and coves of the White Tanks, is Verrado Golf Club’s the Founders Course. This breathtaking course has earned a top 5 spot on GolfWeek’s “2016 Best Courses You Can Play,” making 2016 the fourth year in a row Verrado has been honored to make the list, going from number 16 in 2013 all the way to 4 in 2016!

Winner like Chicken Dinner, Jim Niblack dusts the field with a 64 net score. Keep that up Jim your going to take home a Big Dog reward next year, Well done. Three players tied at 67 net 2nd place went to Tom Willis on a scorecard playoff with 3rd place going to Fred “Steady Freddy” Baldwin following with the Atta-A-Boy award to Jake Nicol all at 67 net those back nines count. Well done too guys. Did any one keep track of any amazing rock bounces today. Best one I saw Saturday was a 40 yard reverse bounce from a rock oddly enough in the middle of the fairway by the Legend himself Dan Clark. Simply Legendary. I had a couple of those myself.  Next up the Palmbrook event on Saturday featuring the 2nd and Final round of the 2017 VGA Club Championship.
