San Clemente Muni Wins South County Cup Golf Tournament
Golfers representing the San Clemente Municipal Golf Course won the 2016 South County Cup Golf Tournament on April 17. The tournament featured members of the Muni teeing it up against players from San Juan Hills Golf Club, Shorecliffs Golf Club and Bella Collina Towne & Golf Club over a two-day stretch.
The event was similar to the Ryder Cup, with team-play matches taking place on April 16 and individual match play on April 17.
The event was held at San Clemente Municipal for the first time and its players proved home course knowledge comes in handy.
Golfers faced 40 mph gusts of wind on the first day of competition but despite the tough conditions, San Clemente Municipal held a two-point advantage over San Juan Hills after day one. On April 17, San Clemente Municipal dominated in singles, winning 12 of a possible 16 points for a winning score of 23. San Juan Hills placed second with 17.5 points. Bella Collina (12.5) and Shorecliffs (11) took third and fourth, respectively.
San Clemente Municipal’s triumph is the second consecutive year in which the event was won by the host team. Last season’s inaugural South County Cup was held at and won by Shorecliffs Golf Club. Next year’s event is scheduled to take place at San Juan Hills Golf Club.
