36th Trans-Miss Four-Ball Update

img_7695 img_3209 img_4177

Division Leaders Post Sub-Par  Opening Rounds at 36th Trans-Miss Four-Ball

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – Despite cool temperatures and periodic rains, several teams managed to better par in the first round of play at the 36th Trans-Mississippi Four-Ball Championship at Forest Highlands Golf Club in Flagstaff, Ariz.  Among the 62 teams in the starting field, 25 found red numbers on the challenging Canyon Course layout.

With the day led by play from the 8th tee and the Senior Division, Steve Van Herpe from Temecula, Calif., and Dan Pouliot of Burbank, Calif., set the pace by carding a 7-under 64 to take the first round lead in their division.

When asked about the keys to their game following their first round, Van Herpe and Pouliot both noted their combined effort as a key to their first round success.  “We were able to keep both balls in play throughout our round and each contributed four birdies a piece,” said Van Herpe.  Van Herpe continued, noting their consistent play early on as a key to their success, “we hit consistent golf shots through the first five holes when the day started with cooler weather and rain.”

Only one shot behind the steady and efficient play of Van Herpe and Pouliot are Bill Jackson from Oklahoma City, Okla., and Mac McGee who hails from Midland, Texas.  The team of Jackson and McGee managed four birdies on both the front and back nine, faltering only on two of the most challenging of par fours offered by the Canyon Course; namely, the seventh and 17th holes, which played 425 and 366 yards, respectively.  With their opening round 6-under 65, Jackson and McGee have six other teams under-par and looking to make up ground in tomorrow’s second round.

In the Super Senior Division, which is contested by players aged 65 and over, Dave Sheff of Dana Point, Calif., and teammate Rich Tolly of Laguna Hills, Calif., led with an opening round 67 at 4-under for the day.  Starting on the first hole, Sheff and Tolly stumbled out of the gate with a bogey on the par four 357 yard opener, but responded with two consecutive birdies en route to their division-leading 67.

Much like the Senior Division, multiple groups found red numbers during the first round of play, with three additional teams at one-under or better on the day in the Super Senior contest.  Heading into tomorrow’s afternoon start, the Super Senior Division remains highly competitive with 13 teams within 5-shots of the lead.

Better weather prevailed in the afternoon for the start of the Championship Division, which features players from the Mid-Amateur age group of 25 and over.  The largest of the three divisions in the field this week, the Championship Division was led by Ben Blundell and Jordan Cook from Oklahoma City, Okla., who posted an 8-under score of 63 in their opening round.  Blundell and Cook are not strangers to the top of the Trans-Miss Four-Ball leaderboard as they took home runner-up honors in the 2015 edition of the championship.  Blundell and Cook were bested in extra holes by eventual champions and fellow Oklahoma residents, Lawrence Field and Draegen Majors at The Honors Couse in Ooltewah, Tenn.

Blundell and Cook rang off six birdies and an eagle to get to 8 under and grab the first round lead.  Not far behind and finding birdies of their own are twelve other groups in the Championship Division, who each posted scores under par.  With darkness falling around the rugged mountain landscape this evening, play was suspended at 6:26 pm.  Competitors will resume play at 8:00 am (MDT) to complete their first round, ahead of second round play.

At the conclusion of 36 holes on Wednesday evening, the field will be cut to the low 48 teams (and ties), with a pro-rated representation from each division. A revision to the format this year, the pro-rated allocation of teams making the cut from each division is as follows: Championship (17 teams and ties); Senior (17 teams and ties); and, Super Senior (14 teams and ties).

Forest Highlands Golf Club is no stranger to hosting national amateur events. Previously it hosted the 1996 U.S. Junior and 2006 U.S. Mid-Amateur Championships on the Canyon Course.  Designed by the architectural duo of Weiskopf and Morrish in 1986, the Canyon Course was carved out of breathtaking forest and rugged mountain terrain. A unique characteristic of the layout is the run of six par 3s between the fourth and 14th holes.  The unique and challenging northern Arizona layout will continue to test competitors in an always exciting team Four-Ball format.

Second round play commences on Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 8:00 a.m. (MDT). For more information pertaining to the championship, please click here. For first round scoring and second round pairings/starting times, please click here.

Forest Highlands Golf Club Renovations Complete

Forest Highlands Golf Club completes $6.75 million renovation to clubhouses elevating the mountain community to new heights

Forest Highlands Golf Club, Flagstaff’s premier mountain, golf community for almost three decades, recently completed a $6.75 million renovation to both its clubhouses.  The clubhouses are located adjacent to the award-winning Tom Weiskopf-designed courses: The Canyon Course and the Meadow Course.

“Our members trusted us with a nearly $7 million investment in the future of our community,” says Forest Highlands General Manager, Bill Griffon.  “These renovations and the expansion of our facilities provide for Forest Highlands remaining one of the top private golf communities, not only in Arizona but in the United States.”

Designed by Scottsdale-based Swaback Partners, the renovations significantly enhanced the outdoor spaces of the clubhouses to take advantage of the dramatic views.  According to John Sather, Senior Partner at Swaback Partners, “The renovation and expansion of Forest Highlands’ Clubhouses offered a great opportunity not only to update the facilities, but to continue to evolve the community’s lifestyle to be enjoyed not only for Golf, but for Life aprés Golf. The completed collection evolved the Meadow and Canyon Clubhouses into true community gathering places for every member of the Forest Highlands community.”

Swaback Partners brings years of club and recreation experience to the project. The design team focused on how to create more outdoor experiences with expanded dining and lounge locations on the wraparound decks.  The dining rooms were also enhanced and modernized with a new luxury look and feel.  A new children’s center was added to the clubhouse, and the family recreation areas were expanded with upgraded amenities added for adults and children to enjoy.

More traditional club offerings were also upgraded including new fitness equipment, massage rooms, steam rooms, exercise room, an updated locker area and a new flex space exercise room.

The members are also pleased with the renovations.  Mary Robinson, Forest Highlands member said, “We are so pleased with our latest renovations.  Our membership came together to identify what it takes to keep Forest Highlands current in appealing to golfers, non-golfers, retirees, families and kids.  This promotes a strong and balanced community interested in its quality of life and protection of property values.”

Forest Highlands Golf Club has continued to see strong sales in the community.  In fact, sales in 2016 have hit an all-time high with nearly $23 million sold as of mid-August.  “We’ve had a great 2016 thus far,” says Griffon. “Buyers come here and see how homeowners and members enjoy world-class golf, tennis, kid’s programming, pools, cycling and so much more at Forest Highlands. It’s more than just a home, it’s a way of life.”

“The location, nestled at 7,000 feet in the ponderosa pine forest of Flagstaff, offers unparalleled views and a mountain experience that’s second to none. We celebrate all four seasons from the glorious 72 degree summers to the winter wonderland when downhill skiing is 30 minutes away and cross country skiing can be found throughout the community,” said Griffon explaining the unique attraction of Forest Highlands.  For 28 years, this private club has remained one of the most popular destinations for families. Golf Digest consistently ranks the two courses in their Top 10 in Arizona.

The 2014 Home Tour

 

 

A Bright Outlook

Our annual Home Tour on June 28th was the most successful tour to date with more than 170 families interested in discovering the secret of what’s inside the gates of Forest Highlands.  DMB Realty Network Forest Highlands showcased 42 homes and the Club opened its doors to share the incredible amenities and activities found in our community. Guests then enjoyed food and beverages at our sales office – a perfect end to the tour and an opportunity to learn more about having a home inside Forest Highlands.

 

We are pleased to share our sales activity since the Home Tour
