Pine Mountain Lake Men’s Golf Club News

    A Good Time was had by all at the Halloween Shootout!

We had a field of 32 players for our first-ever Halloween Shootout last Saturday, which was played in an Alternate Shot format.  

Winning 1st Place in the Gold Flight with a great score of net 63 was the team of Greg Sarratt and Gus Climent.  

Winning 1st Place in the Purple/Green Flight with a net score of 64 was the team of Rich Martinez and Joe Vautier.


The Men’s Club is now paying 4 Closest-to-the-Pins in each of our tournaments.  Winning Gold #3 was Jeff Sera at 28 feet, and winning Gold #14 was Mike Butera at 10 feet.  Winning Purple/Green #3 at a WHOPPING 72′ 9″ was Craig Herendeen, and winning Purple/Green # 14 was Rick Higgs at a very respectable 7′ 7″. Congrats to all the Participants!
