No time to talk. Let’s tee it up right now

We were going to spend some time waxing philosophically about the addition of “In the Clubhouse” — the new Davis Enterprise golf column.

Sports Editor Chris Saur is joining me and former Davis High and UC Davis standout Tyler Raber in presenting this new feature, which will be published on alternate Tuesdays.

This long-overdue item will provide the latest in news from local courses (emphasis on Davis Golf Course, El Macero Country Club and Wildhorse Golf Course), expert tips from local club pros (and our new friend Raber) and colorful stories on anything links-related.

We’ve asked Raber to talk a little about his journey from prep phenom to climbing the various strata in professional golf (but we can’t wait to get into some of those tournament stories and tips from the accomplished ex-Aggie).

Saur and I were going to explore even further what’s ahead for “In the Clubhouse,” but that can wait. Just last week’s announcement of the column brought a blizzard of information from around local layouts.

Let’s tee it up …

Younglove gets No. 12: Topping Brandon Kavrell 7-and-6 in the Championship Flight, Dennis Younglove made it an even dozen titles at El Macero Country Club on Sunday.

New club pro Bruce Summerhays Jr. made the announcement.

Brian Stamper defeated Tim Mar 6-and-4 for the Pinnacle Flight crown while the Monument Flight trophy went to Gary Houston (1 up over Gordon Pirie).

Stamper, Houston and Championship Flight consolation winner Rich White fought it out for the Net Club Champ honors, with Stamper prevailing in the 9-point match.

The accomplished Younglove, by the way, played in the 2012 USGA Senior Amateur Championship.

Thanks from the Villanuevas: The family-friendly Teo Villanueva Memorial Golf Tournament had its 2014 edition recently. Proceeds from this annual gathering provide a scholarship for a deserving Latino student at Davis High School.

Villanueva was killed more than a decade ago in a logging accident. His uncle Ralph and mother Luanna sent along their heartfelt thanks to all who contributed or played last month.

Making the DHS grant meaningful was the support of the following businesses: The Illusion, Ground Zero Board Shop, Thai Canteen, Newsbeat, Sassafras Beauty Salon, Peet’s Coffee & Tea (downtown), Haute Again, Skin Renewal Center, The Habit Burger, The Davis Beer Shoppe, The Avid Reader, Rivers to Reef, Teach Your Children, EZ Smog, Jack’s Urban Eats, Tres Hermanas and Urban Body Tattoo and Piercing.

Dig these scores: While the temperatures soared, the handicap scores plummeted in the Davis Golf Course Men’s Club weekend tourney.

First flight winner was Ed Johnson (62), followed by Brian Bello (63); Don Feryance, Bill Muller and Joe Vigil with 64s; and Ted Villanueva, Larry Peterson and Bill Towne (all in with adjusted 65s).

Second flight was tied with Tim Reid and Earl Booth (63s), followed by the 64-carding duo Jim Fagan and Larry Dunham. Then came Dave Taormino (65), Kevin McSpadden (65) and Gary Traynham with a 66.

Third flight was won by Andy Butler with a 60 — that’s right, a 60. Joe Oka had a 61, 63s were shot by Ken Muller and Martin Rivera, and Rigo Mayorga and Peter Fuqua came in at 65. Sixty-sixes were on Dennis White’s and Don Iocca’s scorecards.

Lowe Remembered: The late Nellie Lowe, longtime Davis Women’s Golf Club member, will be honored by the memorial tournament that bears her name. The event benefits Davis Golf Course junior programs.

Due Sunday, Sept. 21, at the Davis Golf Course, the 8 a.m. shotgun-start tournament costs $50 for adults and $25 for under-18 players. The cart fee is an additional $11.

Breakfast at 7 a.m. and lunch after play are included.

Also at Davis Golf Course, come Oct. 4, is the 2014 Yolo County Championship. The entry fee is $80 for the two-day competition.

All flights are played at scratch.

For more information on both, call 530-756-4010, or to register, visit www.davisgolfcourse.com.
