Las Positas Golf Course

Las Positas Golf Club, a Robert Muir Graves design, opened in 1966. A 27 hole facility located in the Livermore Wine Country. The Signature 18 hole Course is a par 72 stretching a very walkable 6,723 yards. Since its opening, Las Positas Golf Course has gone through 2 major renovations, with the most recent in 2011/2012. The beautiful white sand bunkers are only the beginning of the recent $6 million dollar renovation. The Signature 18 has 5 new holes, 12 redesigned tee boxes, potable water on all greens, new drainage, new cart paths, new landscaping, and a $250,000 new ‘Beeb’s at the Turn’ located at the 10th tee box are only a few of the beautiful updates waiting for you. With that said the course was playing extremely difficult as our club only had a handful of players with single-digit gross scores.

The First Flight, of four, was taken down by Ben Gardner with a net score of 71 (-1) and his first win of the 2021 season!

. Second place has a three-way tie between David Bridgman, Nick Williams, and Tyler Biggs with a net score of 73 (+1). Benjamin Weaver finished the day with the best round and winner of low gross after shooting 73 (+1) gross.

In our Second Flight and earning 50 TOC points, first place was captured by Michael Waller after posting a net 72 (E). Second place was also tied amongst Ryan Hallum, Timothy Vella, and Kevin Yamada with a net score of 75 (+3). Douglas Marinkovich shot an 81 (+9) to win low gross.

Tim Schleiger kicked off the Third Flight with a round of net 76 (+4) to secure his first win of the 2021 season. A two-way tie between Ross Erickson and Michael Fales to split second place with a net 78 (+6). Michael Kern snuck in there to take the final 15 TOC points in 4th place with a net 79 (+7). Patrick Beaulieu earned a low gross with a round of 88 (+16).

In our fourth and final flight of the day, Creighton Pockalny had an exceptional round of net 60 (-3) to take his first 2021 win. Second place goes to Jack Woods for his great efforts at net 72 (E). Third place with two net-eagles and a final round of 73 (+1) goes to Chuck Pickett. Fourth place and the final 15 TOC points of the weekend is awarded to James Kaku after shooting a net 76 (+4). Karl Berta posted a 90 (+18) to earn his $45 and low gross of the Fourth Flight.

As it was mentioned Las Positas was not the easiest of courses but it's great for us all to get out there and try these hidden gems around the Bay. To put things into perspective, our club averages 77.1/84.5 from Blue and White tees at Baylands where this past weekend we shot 88.4/97.0. Thank you to everyone who came out to play and we look forward to seeing you out on the links soon!
