The Palatka Golf Club team won the Jacksonville Area Golf Association’s Club Team Championship played last month at Timuquana Country Club. The team consisted of pro Paul Trettner and amateurs Ron Jerin, Ron Millis and David Perkins.

The winning score was 29-under-par 115 and there were three teams a stroke behind: Deercreek, Atlantic Beach and Fleming Island.

The reason for the low scores: the new rules which allow professionals to carry a handicap. This is a recent trend to equalize the professionals in a pro-am competition, and strokes are now awarded starting with players on the forward most tees.

For instance, Charles Raulerson of Fleming Island is one of the state’s best players and he was given five strokes. 

The complete results:
115: Palatka Golf Club (Paul Trettner, Ron Jerin, Ron Mullis, David Perkins.)
