BOCA RATON, Fla., Nov. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The golf team representing the Stonebridge Country Club has won the 2015 Boca Cup Golf Championship. The Boca Cup is an annual event among ten of the area's most distinguished country clubs for a one-day golf tournament.
The victory by the Stonebridge golf team marks the fourth time in the last seven years, and the third consecutive year, that Stonebridge has won the event. The tournament was established in 2009 at the suggestion of Boca Raton's then mayor, Susan Whelchel.
"We are excited that our Stonebridge golf team can once again hoist the Boca Cup trophy proudly," said Tom Cleaver, the Stonebridge Country Club's Director of Golf. "With a three-peat record, our team has joined the ranks of the greats from the sports world, like the New York Yankees and the Chicago Bulls," Tom Cleaver added while trying to keep a straight face.
Capturing the Boca Cup title this year was even sweeter than in prior years for the Stonebridge team as the Club's golf course has been closed and under complete renovation since February of this year. As a result, Stonebridge with no golf course or practice area had to resort to reciprocal play at other area clubs in order to practice for this year's tournament.
The format for the Boca Cup tournament consists of five two-person teams from each participating club including a club professional. The five teams representing Stonebridge Country Club, with Herb Kanter as its honorary captain, were led by Head PGA Golf Professional Jeff Hall playing with team captain and current Club Champion, Dan Brumbeck. The other paired players were former Club Champions Brian Gilbertson and Ron Bosco playing together, Dr. Jack Malvin paired with Don Gould, Michael Greenberg paired with Tony Codner, and Alan Goldner paired with Rich Catania.
Each pair posted its 18-hole best ball score (with handicap), and from the five posted scores the three best scores were used in arriving at each Club's total score. Stonebridge Country Club's winning score was 184 which was three shots better than the host club, Addison Reserve. The team of Goldner and Catania posted a tournament best low net score of 58 (par 72), which was two shots better than any other team in the field. The net scores of the balance of the Stonebridge team were all well below par and consisted of a net 62, two 64s and a 67.
The competing area clubs this year were Addison Reserve, Boca Grove, Boca West, Boca Woods, Broken Sound, The Polo Club, Royal Palm, St. Andrews, Stonebridge and Woodfield.
Stonebridge will look to extend its winning streak at the 2016 Boca Cup Golf Championship to be held at the newly renovated golf course at the Stonebridge Country Club.
