Sabal Chase resident sets course record

Pete Smith, of the Village of Sabal Chase, stands on the black tee Nov. 30 at Glenview Champions Country Club where he recently shot his age, 71, and matched a course record.

Pete Smith wanted a challenge.

That is why he and his playing group decided to move back from their usual spot at the gold tees to the black on Nov. 7 at Glenview Champions Country Club.

Early on, it did not look like Smith was going to shoot his age and match a course record.

“The second hole is a very short carry over a pond area and I hit my tee shot into the drain pipe,” Smith said. “It bounced out and I went down into the hazard, chipped it out and made double-bogey.”
