More action coming to golf course


   Tournament season is in full swing at Desert Peaks Golf Club, the nine-hole city-owned course near the Jefferson County airport.
   A two-man, best-ball tournament held Saturday and Sunday, June 21 and 22, despite the Town Party's postponement, was just the start of events planned at the course.
   There is a tournament being put on by the Elks on Saturday, June 28. More competition is coming Sunday, June 29, at Desert Peaks. That is when the first in a series of three "Dog Eat Dog" scramble tournaments will be played.
   Four-player teams can invest $30 toward a team jackpot for the scramble while individuals will have to pay green fees, unless they are already Desert Peaks members.
   Of the fees collected $25 of the total will be distributed on the day of the tournament with another $5 set aside to the winning team in the final standings in the three-date series. The other dates are July 27 and Aug. 31.
   Varied groups are also competing at Desert Peaks.
   Couples are now holding nine-hole Chapman events on Monday afternoons after work, starting about 6 p.m.
   Another nine-hole competition takes place Wednesdays. The men's league has teammates to play head-to-head against members of other teams for points, which are awarded to the player with the lowest net score of the day.
   There are also Wednesday Ladies' Day events plus Thursday Men's Day events being held at the Desert Peaks course.
