The Pahrump Valley golf team will get to play in its own backyard this week when the 3A Southern Nevada regional golf tournament comes to town for a two-day event.
Mountain Falls Golf Club will be hosting both rounds of this year’s regional tournament. The regional tournament will take place on Wednesday and Thursday, May 10-11.
Pahrump Valley finished as runners-up in the Nevada 3A state golf tournament at Mountain Falls last season.
The Trojans will be defending their 2022 regional title, which they won by 73 strokes over the Boulder City Eagles last season.
All six of Pahrump’s golfers finished in the top 10 spots of the ‘22 Southern regional with former Trojan Kasen Moore leading the way with a two-day score of 180.
This season, head coach Bob Hopkins will have four new golfers who didn’t compete in either of last year’s regional or state competitions.
The only Trojan returning from last year’s team is Joey Mule. Scott Oscarson, Matt Lopez, Ryder Cordova and Dylan Avena are all new to Hopkins’ team.
The top three teams and the top six individuals from non-qualifying teams will qualify for next week’s Nevada 3A state tournament.
Both days are scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. with the champion ceremony taking place following the completion of Thursday’s second round.
