Photo by Shannon Morrow Local golf teams compete ,,,ith Reno The Sierra Nevada Travel Cup, a golf competition that pairs 10 players from each of six participating clubs in match play, has been a part of local golf competition for a number of years. The six clubs currently competing are Graeagle Meadows, Plumes Pines, Dia- mond Mountain, Rosewood Lakes, Wildcreek and Barley Creek. The Sierra Nevada Travel Cup has been a good interface between golfers from the Reno area visiting Plumes County courses, and vice versa. Play is home and home be- tween two clubs each month, with a final wrap-up in Octo- ber at one of the clubs. This year's final will be at Graea- gle Meadows. The scoring in individual matches is one point for first nine holes, one point for sec- ond nine and one point for the total 18. There is also a "team match" in each foursome-- with a best ball scoring -- the same points for the first nine, second nine and the 18. The result is each twosome from each club that competes against each other has a po- tential nine points, three each for the individual match and three for the team match. The total points available in each competition is 45. The cumulative team scor- ing is maintained each year with a single team champion. Cumulative individual scores are not maintained. The June results for the Sierra Nevada Travel Cup had Graeagle Meadows over Plumes Pines 48.5 points to 41.5 points. Diamond Moun- tain beat Rosewood Lakes 57.5 to 32, and Wildcreek de- feated Bailey Creek 47-43. In the year-to-date stand- ings, Graeagle Meadows is currently in first place, fol- lowed by Plumes Pines in second, Diamond Mountain in third, Rosewood Lakes in fourth, Wildcreek in fifth and Bailey Creek in sixth.
