Yucca Ridge Tournament Ends With Playoff
Saturday the Yucca Ridge Golf Club hosted its seventh annual "SnoBall" two-person scramble golf tournament to wind up its 2013 tournament season. And once again, no snow this year as temperatures reached the low 70s with a good southwest wind challenging the competition.
After 18 holes two teams were tied for the lead. And, despite the windy conditions for the day, were able to shoot even par 70 for their rounds. Then back out to decide things with a 3-hole playoff, there was still a tie. On the fourth playoff hole to finish in sudden death the team of Gary Allan and Rod Stout edged out the father/son team of Paul and Josh Castillo to win the 2013 "SnoBall" tournament and close out the tournament season at Yucca Ridge.
Third place went to the team of Brian Obholz and Tommy Cleveland shooting a 6 over par 76. Fourth place went to Levi Eaton and Derek Fuller shooting 77 for the day. Claiming fifth place for the tournament was the team of Ed Rangel and Jesse Escobedo.
Yucca Ridge will be open throughout the winter weather permitting. It is a links style public access golf course located 4 ½ miles north of Liberal off of US Hwy 83. For more information on events at Yucca Ridge, or to make a tee time, call 62-4GOLF or 482-0243.
