Desert Duffer Club Championship


David Larson

The Quail Creek Men’s Nine Hole Golf Club (Desert Duffers) just completed their annual club championship tournament. This was played over three weeks on each of the three courses with one round on March 6, the second round on March 13, and the final round on March 20, followed by an awards luncheon on March 22.

The club champion for 2018 is Mike Senatra.

Flight Winners are A flight, Tom Nease; B flight, Dale Wilson; C flight, Overall champion Mike Senatra and D flight, Don Bacon.

The winner of the overall low gross score is Steve Perry.

The awards luncheon was held at the Madera Clubhouse with a big thank you to John McPherson for arranging this event. President Ed Pope acknowledged and thanked tournament director Marty Coplea and his committee including Dan Cerny who arranged the pairings so each golfer played on each of the three courses and did the winnings for the tournament winners. Also, a big thank you to Quail Creek head golf professional Joel Jaress for working with Pres. Ed to present the awards. All of which resulted in the annual tournament being run in the spirit of the Desert Duffer motto: “Golf is a game…Have fun.”

Upcoming Desert Duffer events include the overnight outing to Casa Grande, Arizona on May 9 and 10, 2018. This is the 11th annual outing at Casa Grande and, this year, the Duffers will be playing two different courses. These are the Duke golf club in Maricopa, and the Francisco Grande golf course in Casa Grande, where they will be staying. Details are on the sign-up sheet posted on the Duffer bulletin board in the pro shop.

The Desert Duffers golf on Tuesday mornings. For more information contact our membership chairman Bill Albert at 393-1315.
