Team SGL wins inaugural match play competition…..
The golf Gods were with us for the first Cup Challenge between the Valley Golf Association and the Saturday Golf League at the Gainey Ranch Golf Club in Scottsdale. The 16 Ryder Cup type matches were closely contested; with the SGL taking home the Cup. Captains Tom Hecocks and Dave Dean were both pleased with how this first of hopefully many future events turned out and with a few tweaks should be bigger and better next time. Outstanding performances were put together by Danny Campos of the VGA and Dan Gallegos of the SGL who easily won their matches. The SGL gets the right to hold “The Cup” until the next competition and also to pick next year’s venue. Photo Album
