PGA Tour Taps Palm Coast as National Qualifying Site The Palm Coaster, Winter 1988, page 16.

PGA  Tour Taps Palm Coast As National Qualifying Site
PALM COAST, Florida - It has been called the most pressure -packed week in golf.
December 2nd through 7th, at Matanzas Woods Golf Club and Pine Lakes Country Club, some 200 pros and would -be pros from across the U.S.A. battled it out for 50 1988 PGA Tour playing cards. They were current TOUR pros needing to requalify, and the talented survivors of regional and sectional tournaments.  They came to Palm Coast with no less than their dreams on the line. 
The tension was so thick you could cut it with a niblick.
The top 50 scorers and ties - over 108 holes in six days - moved on to the next pressure level:  The PGA TOUR.
It was a prestigious selection to host the national finals. The tournament was held last year at PGA West in LaQuinta, California, and in 1985 at the Tournament Players Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. Palm Coast Director of Golf Bob Kendra likes the company his courses keep.
" We've worked hard to develop a PGA TOUR-calibre golf environment here, and our selection by Tour officials was very rewarding," said Kendra.  "it was an exciting tournament played by some of the country's best young golfers."
The courses that challenged them - and test Palm Coast golfers every day - bear the trademark stamps of designers Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay: ;rolling fairways, dangerous lakes and different looks on each hole, requiring strategy, not just power.
From the pro tees, through, a little power didn't hurt.  Matanzas Woods is a par-72, 6,985 - yard layout among the pines and cypress of north Palm Coast.  Pine Lakes is the longest of Palm Coast's three courses, a 7,044 yard, par 72 track with water in play on half of its holes.
December 2nd through 7th, 1987, the lakes grew larger, the trees taller, the greens smaller, the traps more imposing. Survival of the Fittest is what this was, and who knows, some Sunday afternoon on your television soon, you may see the fittest shooting it our with the best.
Palm Coast got them there.
( PRO APPROACH Matanzas Woods Assistant Pro Ed Crowell zeros in on the green at No. Three.

Matanzas Golf Course Dedication - Arnold Palmer

The Designer Dedicates Matanzas
Arnold Palmer came to town Wednesday, November 12, and as usual, attracted an army. He cracked the traditional club against the side of Matanzas Woods Golf Club's new clubhouse- just as he had done to dedicate Pine Lakes Country Club five years earlier. Then he teed off with 120 fellow golfers- among them local leaders, state legislators, business people and co-designer Ed Seay- in an invitational tourney. The day ended with a reception for members and golfers on the driving range, and then Arnie was off by helicopter, flying low over the crowd. "Florida's next great golf course," in the words of Golfweek magazine, is now officially christened by the golf legend who designed it.
Pine Lakes New Members Lounge
Golfers are second only to fishermen in the telling of tall tales, and therin lies the logic behind "Fibber's," resident Jay Bell's winning entry in SunSport Recreation's "Name the Pine Lakes Members Lounge" contest.
With the closing of The Harbour Restaurant for Sheraton hotel construction, Pine Lakes Country Club restaurant-newly - remodeled and renamed "Champions" - opened its doors to the public last summer. Earlier this year Palm Coast Construction started work on a new member-only lounge and restaurant, due for completion this summer. More then 400 contest entries poured in, ranging from the lofty and spiritual - "Treetops" and "Members' Monastery" - to the jazzy and political "Boogie Bar' and "Bourgeois Lounge"  But "Fibber's" came out on top, and earned Pine Lakes charter member Jay Bell a $200.00 gift certificate.
Palm Coast three golf courses, by the way, are looking good and playing even better. Matanzas' Woods and Pine Lakes were the host courses for the $ 80,000.00 Palm Coast Classic, A Tournament Players Association tour event, on February 23 - March 1.
