June 3-4 | Mountain View C.C.
The stage was set for a great championship at Mountain View CC. The field consisted of over 50 contestants. Mike Holyk, PGA Head Professional and his staff were outstanding hosts! The Arnold Palmer design course was a great challenge and David Doss, the superintendent, had the course in spectacular condition.
Players representing clubs from all over the Desert Chapter competed. But, we could only crown one champion. Congratulate Gordon Leith, PGA of Heritage Palms CC for playing two great days of golf. Gordon shot 10-under par for two days to beat out the ever present at the top of the leaderboard, Brian Hughes of PGA West – Greg Norman Course. Brian shot 9-under par for two days and he shot 6-under par 66 on the last day with Leith. Leith shot a 68 in his final round to hold Hughes off.
