Wednesday, September 6th, 2017 / Legacy and Wednesday Don Peterson’s 2 man Best Ball competition scores.

The Legacy Golf Club, rich in heritage and history, is an 18-hole par 71 championship golf course designed by renowned golf course architect Gary Panks. Located on what was once Dwight B. Heard’s 7,500-acre ranch, the golf club is rich in Arizona heritage and history. Taking great pride in preserving and integrating many of the historical structures and monuments, our 18-hole championship golf course offers a unique look and an added opportunity to experience some Arizona history and of the Heard legacy, from which the golf club takes its name. The original two-grain silos, built in 1902, still remain along the 18th fairway and were once the tallest structures in Maricopa County. The Sierra Vista House, which marks the 1st tee, was visited on occasion in the early 1900’s by Theodore Roosevelt and Pancho Villa. Come make your own history at the Legacy Golf Club!

Those two golfers play their own golf balls throughout and the lower score between them on each hole counts as the team score. Two-Person Best Ball can be used in tournaments or by any group of four golfers (who want to play 2-vs.-2). 

In the regular event, Larry Burton took first today at Legacy with a 66 net. Larry don’t you have business in the east somewhere. New comer Jake Nicol takes 2nd at 67 net. Good start Jake. Neal Fisel getting back on track from vacation came in third at 68 net. Lucky me I get the Atta-A-Boy at 69 but must share it with Doug Rankin also at 69 on a rotating basis. Next up The Legend @ Arrowhead. Know Danny Clark will be there. Rest of the Field below.
