Club Information & Description:
Players: As of Fall 2013, the club consists of about 100 active members and is growing quickly. Handicaps range from 3 to over 40, with a median around 20. Each weekly event typically draws 20 to 60 players – the draw is strongly dependent on the season.
Regular Tournaments: Both Thursday and Saturday events typically include an element to award both gross (un-handicapped) scores and net (handicapped) scores. Events are often flighted before play, based on handicap index. The aim is to allow event winnings to be spread evenly across the membership over time.
Example weekly events include: Individual Low Gross/Low Net, Individual Stableford, Gross/Net Field Match Play, etc. Partnered events are also very popular, examples: Two-man Net Best ball, Two-man Blind Draw, and Two-man Stableford. Less conventional events are occasionally included in the schedule, examples: Pro-Am Challenge (area golf professionals join us for an event), 4-Club Challenge, 2- or 4-Man Scrambles, Two-Man 3x6 Events, etc.
The optional skins and proximity side games are also very popular. Both a gross version and a net version of skins is played. Detailed side game results are often displayed on a monitor in the PMGR lounge as players finish their rounds.
Special and Trophy Tournaments: Special and Trophy Tournaments: A variety of member/guest special events are scheduled throughout the year, most typically as holiday celebrations, examples: Mad Hatter Pairs (Easter time), the July 4th Scramble, Turkey Shoot (Thanksgiving), Nutcracker Open (Christmas time).
PMMGC currently hosts five Trophy Tournaments during the year. These are typically multi-round “T-score” events that determine Club Champion, President’s Cup (net) Champion, Match Play Champion, 2-Man Champions, etc. Some of these champions are sent to AGA events where they represent PMMGC in regional play.
The club has held several multi-day team events against area mens' clubs in Ryder Cup-like fashion. These are very popular events. If you are a men's club coordinator and would like to set up a club-vs-club event with us, please contact any of our officers. PMMGC club officers
Course: Most frequently, events are held at the Painted Mountain Golf Resort. The course offers our players year round beautiful AZ golf conditions and weather, interesting greens, and a consistent golfing challenge while still being forgiving to errant shots.
Away events are also regularly included on club’s schedule. Past venues include nearby courses at Red Mountain Ranch Country Club, Mountain Brook, Toka Sticks, Rancho Manana, ASU Karsten, Apache Wells Golf Resort, and Orange Tree, to name but a few. Ryder Cup-like matches with area men’s clubs are on the club’s schedule looking forward.
