The Utah Golf Association private team play league consists of three divisions: at-large, senior, and super senior. Of those three, Alpine Country Club clinched two 2016 championship victories. Alpine’s seniors defeated Hidden Valley 22 points to 14 points at Tuhaye, and the at-large team claimed the club’s second victory over Oakridge Country Club Wednesday, September 21st at Glenwild Golf Club & Spa.

Oakridge started the day in the lead after Joe Summerhays and Curtis Cook rounded up 8.5 of 9 available points over Alpine’s Brock Padilla and Brent Bryson. However, Alpine brought things back to even when Clark Jones and Stewart Rutter answered by capturing 8.5 of 9 points as well. The teams were all square at 9 points following the first two matches.

In the third match, John Rhodes and Taylor Berbert of Oakridge secured 6 points over Alpine’s Randy Hadfield and Dan Hatch, who earned a total of 3 points.

It was Randy Danjanovich and Paul Shumway who turned things around for Alpine by earning 9 out of 9 available match play and four-ball points in the fourth and final match versus Oakridge’s Boo Bendinger and Scott Lieber. Alpine defeated Oakridge 21-15 to earn the title of UGA Private 8-Man At-Large Division champions.
