Spring is getting underway at Comanche Trace, which means the golf course is busy with people practicing for our upcoming member tournaments!
The Big Cup
On March 16th Comanche Trace will host a member/member event called The Big Cup. This is a unique tournament in that the cup is bigger than normal, which is something we have all wished for at one time or another! Saundra Gensler and Carla Barlow won the Ladies Division last year and Don Turkelson and Bill Cavin won 1st flight for the Men’s Division. Don Capps and Steve Phillips won the 2nd flight. The 3rd flight winners for the Men’s Division were Hugh Rees and David Barker. This event is always fun and it will be interesting to see if last year’s winners can maintain their titles!
The Valero Texas Open Qualifier
The Valero Texas Open Qualifi er will be April 1st. It is exciting to watch the professional golfers play Comanche Trace. The low score last year was a 66 shot by William Osbourne on the Hills and Creeks courses. I can’t wait to see what the fi eld has in store for us this year!
The Staff Skins Game
The Staff Skins Game is April 7th at 3 p.m. with a Silent Auction to be held April 6th at 6 p.m. This event is special to Comanche Trace because the members get to watch Tony Johnson, Colby Cobb, Mac Wylie, Scott Parker, and Chuck Tondre battle it out for 9 holes on the Hills. Last year, Colby Cobb won five skins on the 5th hole with a four foot par putt. Everyone went into a playoff on #9 of the Hills, which Tony Johnson won with a tap in birdie after hitting the green in two. Please mark your calendars for this April 6th event! There are always great items donated to the Silent Auction that members can bid on.
The Brute is another member/member tournament and it is held April 27th & 28th. Last year’s winners of the championship fl ight were Tim Dylina and David Conley. Sam Poorman and Alex Dingman won the 1st fl ight. The 2nd flight resulted in a tie between the teams Jeff Giles and Glenn Andrew, and Mike Sigerman and Mike Mathy. Make a point to play this tournament! The competition is always good and the bragging rights, if you win, are even better!
