​Sandbaggers News            

September 2017 -

Coming off the Monterey trip, the Sandbaggers were back in the Bay Area for Rooster Run in August, Dale McCrossen posted the low net score in his flight while Terry Hartburg & Frank Offen claimed victory in their flights.

The course was in very good condition and attendance was solid.

Up next, the menacing Bridges in San Ramon. This course has many reputations and rumors swirling about it… It is a Johnny Miller design that requires target golfing. Dale McCrossen slayed the beast with a raw 80 (net 66!!!)…! Those of us who have played the track know that he well and truly played excellent golf to do that! Joseph LeChevallier & Ralph Yarnal claimed honors in their flights as well. Hats off to all of you! Oh yes, Prez Jim Landers finished a solid 2nd in the A Flight…

With a 3rd place finish at the Bridges with a net 73, Wayne Bonnington claimed Sandbagger of The Year!!! His net 72 strokes per round exhibited solid golf for the season. Chuck Andrade finished just over ½ a stroke higher for 2nd place. Chuck Martin at just over 73 strokes per round claimed the 3rd place position. Chuck benefitted from Sunday events this season.

Up in September is the Reno trip and if you check quickly, there may be a spot or two left... That does not guarantee lodging but hey, if you waited this long you rolled the dice a bit late.

Also in September is the Sandbaggers Banquet. Make plans to join the fun on September 30th at Jack’s in Pleasant Hill.
