Oakdale wins 9-Hole Golf Challenge
LIVERMORE- A team from Oakdale Country Club recently participated in the Annual 9-Hole Golf Course Challenge that took place in September at Maple Lane Golf Course.
The teams were made up of 12 men and four women from each course. In some cases, one member played on Saturday while another member from that course played the final day. The teams competed in a net match play format.
Two players from each club teed off on Saturday playing Alternate Shot on the first nine and Scramble on the second. Of the 24 points available after the first round, Oakdale Country Club had earned 8.5 points, Maple Lane Golf Course had earned 8 points and Wilson Lake Country Club had earned 7.5. Sunday's format had two players from each team teeing off playing best ball of two on the first nine and individual on the second. With four groups and four points still out on the course, the difference between Oakdale and Wilson Lake was just 3.5 points.
