Graeagle Men’s Golf Club
Graeagle vs. Plumas Pines
The annual duel between the Graeagle Men’s Golf Club (GMGC) and the Plumas Pines Men’s Golf Club (PPMGC), known as the Golden Tomahawk Tournament, was held on Wednesday, Aug. 29, at Graeagle Meadows Golf Course, and on Thursday, Aug. 30, at Plumas Pines Golf Course. The winning team takes home a plaque which is adorned with a Golden Tomahawk. The trophy then resides in the pro shop of the winning team’s golf course for one year.
The format for the event is individual and team matches. In each foursome, there is a match between one member from GMGC and one member from PPMGC. There are three points available in each match: one for the first nine holes, one for the second nine holes, and one point for the eighteen holes. In addition, the better ball of the two members from each club are contesting a match against the better ball of the two members of the other club, with the same allocation of points, one each for front, back and eighteen. There were eighteen individual, and nine team matches. All play is from the white tees.
In 2011, PPMGC won the trophy, and in 2012, there was a tie, 121 to 121 points. Therefore, the PPMGC has had the trophy for the past two years. All that changed this year. The first day, PPMGC led 54-1/2 to GMGC’s 53-1/2. On the second day, GMGC scored 57 points to 51 for PPMGC. The GMGC won the tournament with a score of 110.5 to 105.5, a very close match that came down to the very last match on the course. The GMGC team in the last match won six points to three points for PPMGC, to seal the victory.
Although the matches are competitive, but they are friendly, since many of the members of each club also belong to, the other club, and play together regularly. A player may play for one Club one year and the other Club the next year. Congratulations to the Graeagle Men’s Golf Club!
