GOLF with Branch 89

Branch 89 plays golf every Thursday at one of the local golf courses. The courses include Salinas Fairways, Laguna Seca Golf Ranch, Monterey Pines, Crazy Horse Ranch, Carmel Valley Ranch, Pacific Grove, Spring Hills, and Seascape golf courses.

Neil Ledford & Bob Pendergrass
Golf Coordinators

First tee time is usually around mid-morning every Thursday. Our members share lots of comradery; we’re out to enjoy the day and have a good time together. The schedule includes several different formats that make interesting competitions during the year, such as: A) Drop your 3 highest scores, B) Play with 3 clubs and a putter, C) Forward tee week, D) Two man best ball, and E) Two man alternate shot.

On the Thursday following our monthly meeting/luncheon we have a points competition. It is similar to the FedEx points race on the PGA tour in that all participants receive points. The points are awarded as follows: 1st place = 500 points; 2nd place = 450 points; 3rd place = 400 points; 4th place = 350 points; 5th place = 300 points; 6th place = 250 points; 7th place = 200 points; 8th place = 175 points; 9th place = 150 points; 10th place = 125 points; 11th place = 100 points; and 12th place and higher = 75 points.

The member with the highest cumulative score at the end of November will be awarded the Club Golf Championship trophy at the Christmas luncheon in December.

Come join us and have some fun.
