Wednesday, September 26, 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.

Ocotillo Scoring

Today the front 9 Blue course looking like they were mowing hay and the bailers hadn’t shown up. Not the usual Octotillo fair that’s for sure. But its that time of year. Rich Golz my cart partner showed me the way but I could not imitate it. I mean banging 40 foot or more putts from off the green, please Rich. He ended up tied at 67 net with George Kowalchik who came in second on the scorecard playoff. Rusty Silverman took third at 69 net and Tim Haight took the Atta Boy at 70 net.
