Cody Mattfeldt won the Beaver Creek Men's Club Championship in a four-man playoff last Sunday.

The last few local golf reports will be short and sweet.

That's because, time is winding down on not only the recreational golf season, but, the room I'll have to run this column.

Anyway, first, congratulations are in order to a pair of club champions.

Sarah Spangler claimed the Women's Club Championship on Sunday at Prairie Farms Golf Course, shooting an 81. I'd also like to shout out my boss and good friend Stacy Mantle for winning her flight in the tournament. Lorrie Keller also won her flight, and tied with Teresa Brown for low net.

Also last Sunday, Cody Mattfeldt won the Men's Club Championship at Beaver Creek Golf Course. Cody was in a four-man playoff after 18 holes were complete, and he chipped in for birdie to win the title. Congrats Cody.

The last club chipper to be held in our area will be this Sunday at Prairie Farms, when the course holds its Men's Club Championship. The round will tee off at 9:30 a.m., and, it's not to late to sign up.

Also, I'd like to take this opportunity to wish by good buddy Jim Kirkpatrick, his Montana State University-Northern golf teams best of luck on their fall season. The Lights and Skylights teed off yesterday in the 54-hole University of Providence Tournament in Great Falls. Hopefully, I'll have results of that tourney, and the Men's Club Championship at Prairie Farms in next week's From Tee to Green.

Finally, I have to let all of you local golf enthusiasts in on something pretty cool. I know many of you like to travel and play different golf courses, around the state, and I know my guy Jerry Veis already has played almost all of them.

With that said, if you are traveling anywhere near Harlowtown, and you love golf, and golf course, I highly recommend you play Jawbone Country Club. My good friend Dennis Murphy has been telling me about it for years, and last Thursday, I saw it with my own eyes.

So, I can now confirm what Murph has been talking my ear off about for so long - it's a great course. It's scenic, it's got all kinds of cool features I won't give away, and most of all, it's a challenging, elevated layout that's got a linksy feel to it, and it's kept in really nice condition.

In other words, I was simply amazed at how cool of a course Jawbone is, and while I spent last Thursday coaching the Blue Pony golf teams, I'm definitely going to go play it on my own someday soon, and I think you should too.
