Pac Am players cherish the moment at Sunriver Resort
The golfers at the Sunriver Resort Woodlands course were just a bit more focused than usual on a gorgeously mild Monday afternoon. Each, it seemed, stared over their putting lines a touch longer than normal, careful not to make an unforced error.
Over at Meadows, it was much the same. All playing in foursomes, the golfers were truly enjoying the emerald green tournament conditions while basking under the blue late-summer sky. All seemed friendly with one another, but there was an intensity not often seen during an ordinary round.
This was the first round of the Lithia Pacific Amateur Golf Classic, the annual Central Oregon amateur golf extravaganza, which is celebrating its 20th year at Sunriver Resort. Each stroke counts in the net stroke play tournament, so such intensity should be expected.
