Trails of Frisco in GREAT SHAPE for Thursday as Crabtree and McKay win last week's events! Super Major #7 at Texas Star August 4-5!!

Congratulations to Curtis Crabtree and Justin McKay, our latest winners on the FairWay Tour! Last Thursday at Mesquite GC, Curtis Crabtree fired an even par 71 for a net score 69.4 as the 1.6 handicap was able to negotiate greens pushing the limit on speed. Approaching 14 on the stimp, these greens were easily the fastest we have seen in a few years on the tour! Frank Darnell, the greenskeeper, does a fantastic job with this course. There were a couple of suspect pin placements that drew the ire of a few players, but overall what an awesome experience for the guys! Next time we play Mesquite, we will be sure all the pins are in negotiable locations. Frank actually played the event and was surprised that the pins on #7 and #13 were so volatile! But don't tell Curtis! He birdied 13 and cashed a check for $2320 in one afternoon of golf. As Tour Director, it is quite funny to hear complaints about something to do with the golf course on an almost weekly basis. Greens too SLOW...greens too FAST...course too EASY...course too TOUGH! BREAKING NEWS...we all play the same golf course!! But I can say there were no complaints about the Tournament Course at Woodlands CC Saturday! The greens were running a perfect 11 two days before aerification and the fairways were like carpet. Personally, I feel this golf course could have been the best we have played on the Tour! Justin McKay likely thought so too, as the +0.6 handicap fired a 3 under par 69 for a net score of 69.6 and a check for $3645! That's right, he played one round of golf on the beautiful Woodlands CC Tournament Course using his handicap and got PAID!! What were you doing last Saturday afternoon?? The FairWay Tour wants more people finding out about the great golf and tax relief opportunities awaiting our members. That being said, we are trying to expand our Social Media presence. As some of you may know, we are doing 3 FREE $100 drawings this year on the FairWay Tour. To have your name entered into the drawing all you have to do is LIKE and SHARE/RETWEET the Goals 2018 tweet at the top of our feed on Facebook or Twitter. Our first drawing will be next weekend at Texas Star golf course during Super Major #7! The winner will walk away with $100 in FairWay Tour credit. This can be used towards any event in 2018. Don't miss out! We hope you are able to join the competition real soon because one thing is certain..."If you don't tee it up you can't WIN!"
