Cherry Island GC came storming back to take the title.
Cherry Island GC shot a final round 15-under 127 Friday at par-71 Quail Lodge Resort to come from four behind and win the annual NCGA East Sacramento Zone Championship.
The Cherry Island GC team, made up of teammates David Orcutt, Larry Orcutt, Michael Marsh and Sean David, posted five eagles and six birdies to go against two bogeys in a format that takes the two best net scores per hole of a four-man team. They’d finish with a two-day total of 26-under 256.
Taking second place at 257 was North Ridge CC. The North Ridge CC squad, comprised of teammates Curt Moniz, James Phillips, Richard Drawbert and Ralph Hilber made a move with a second round 10-under 132.
Both Cherry Island GC and North Ridge CC earned automatic spots into this year’s NCGA Zone Championship, slated for August 29-30 at Poppy Hills and Spyglass Hill.
Third place went to Woodcreek GC at 258.

North Ridge Country Club jumped out to the lead at the annual NCGA East Sacramento Zone Championship, but there’s still another round to go.
North Ridge CC posted a 15-under 125 at par-70 Carmel Valley Ranch on Thursday to grab a two shot lead over both La Contenta GC and Granite Bay GC.
The North Ridge CC team, made up of teammates Curt Moniz, James Phillips, Richard Drawbert and Ralph Hilber, posted five eagles and six birdies to go against just one bogey in a format that takes the two best net scores per hole of a four-man team.
La Contenta, comprised of teammates Mitchell Mariani, William Bray, Larry Walters and Robert Schriver, had four eagles, seven birdies and a double-bogey. Team Granite Bay–Jason Craig, Jeff Erickson, David Puterbaugh and Ed Tatosian–penciled in five eagles and six birdies but also two bogeys and a double-bogey.
Both Winchester CC and Cherry Island GC are tied for fourth at 129.
Only the low two teams will advance to this year’s NCGA Zone Championship, slated for August 29-30 at Poppy Hills and Spyglass Hill. Friday’s final round will see play shift over to par-71 Quail Lodge Resort.
