This is year 4 of the Greatest Golfer of the Valley program. Every year, we’ve added to the offerings to make the program as complete a service to the golf community as time and budget allow.
This year’s addition is the Greatest Scramble, and it is simply been outstanding in the few weeks it’s been on the schedule.
Among the chatter:
At the South Range booster scramble, apparently one team has solidly won that event in recent years. With that scramble now a qualifier for the Greatest Scramble, that team has split up to find new players and stack the deck.
And at Tamer Win, the Rolfe scramble had already happened before our Greatest Scramble was launched. So excited were the winners of that event, they asked if their event could become a qualifier — post-event. Just so they could play Greatest.
Pretty cool ....
