Boca Lago Country Club wins 2016 South County Golf League Championship
It has been almost 25 years since Boca Lago has tasted victory in the South County League Championship. Victory has never tasted so good.
Members of Boca Lago Country Club closed out an impressive victory over Gleneagles Country Club at the South County League Championship, hosted by Hunters Run, on Wednesday September 21st by a score of 5 to 3.
The men held their own all season in league play finishing atop the division heading into the playoffs. The first playoff match was against a very solid Stonebridge squad that had Boca Lago’s number in both matches earlier in the year. This playoff was one for the books! Boca Lago was down in the matches 4 to 3 with one match left for the tie to force a playoff or go home. Al Berger and Charlie Maer, from Boca Lago, knew something was up as all the players were watching their match on the 9th green. Al and Charlie won the final hole to tie the overall match 4 to 4 and force a three-hole playoff.
Andy Balser and Kevin Minihane were the selected players to represent Boca Lago and won 1up sending the men on to the next round in a thrilling victory.
The next week saw the Men playing at Boca Pointe where the matches were close against a strong Boca Pointe/ Royal Palm team. However in the end it was Boca Lago on top and heading to the Championship match to face the defending champions, Gleneagles.
The championship matches were close all day as they went back and forth 1 up to 1 down for much of the day and the majority of the matches came down to the final hole as Boca Lago held on to secure the victory 5 to 3.
Boca Lago would like to thank Hunters Run for hosting the Finals, Gleneagles for a great playoff match, our Team Governor’s Perry Sperber, Al Berger and Captain Sandy Cohn. It was a wonderful year for golf and camaraderie and we look forward to defending the title next year. The South County Golf League is comprised of a terrific group of Clubs and Members.
