In the fall of 2004, a small group of friends began getting together each week for 9 holes of golf - nothing serious, just to have fun. Word soon spread that this group was having a good time and enjoying the comrade-ship. People began to ask if they could join the group. It soon became apparent that there was a need for a men's 9 hole golf group. The Men's 9 Hole Golf Association (aka Desert Duffers) was formed with the following stated mission:
GOLF IS A GAME! HAVE FUN!
This mission obviously appeals to many golfers, beginners and low handicappers, because the membership has grown to over 275 and is expected to attract even more in the future. All skill levels are represented. Currently, we tee it up on Tuesdays.
