Saratoga CC came back to take the title.
Saratoga CC shot 22-under 120 Friday at par-71 Poppy Hills Golf Course to finish at 252 and claim the annual NCGA South Bay Zone Championship title by four strokes over runner-up Eagle Ridge GC.
The Saratoga CC team–made up of teammates Rob Faxon, Augustus Kamburis, David Gragnola and Mark Zamudio—posted eight eagles and six birdies to go against just one bogey playing in a format that takes the two best net scores per hole of a four-man team. They had entered the day eight strokes off the lead.
Eagle Ridge GC—comprised of teammates Richard Nanchy, Dan Suseri, Matt Watson and Jordan Miller—had a 125 to come in at 256. They’d card five eagles and seven birdies to go against three bogeys.
Gilroy GC placed third at 257.
Both Saratoga CC and Eagle Ridge GC earned automatic berths into this year’s NCGA Zone Championship, slated for August 28-29 at Spyglass Hill and Poppy Hills.
