Earlier this month Legend Oaks won its second straight Charleston Area Men’s Interclub Golf Association match.
The sixth match of the 2014 season was played May 5 at the Coosaw Creek Country Club. Legend Oaks came in with 18 points to win the event and the host team was just behind with 15 points.
RiverTowne came in with 14 points to claim third place.
“The weather was superb, the course was set up very well and 127 competitors vied for prizes and team points for their respective club,” association president Mike Phillips said. “Our appreciation goes to host interclub director, Steve Windich, for having volunteers on the course to ranger and keep the pace of play moving, and spotters to help out on select holes.
“As usual, the excellent staff at Coosaw Creek provided a very nice course setup and quick score posting.”
Trailing were Berkeley (8 points), Shadowmoss (7), Crowfield (5), Stono Ferry (-1), Wescott Plantation (-3), Charleston National (-4), Pine Forest (-5), Dunes West (-7), Charleston Municipal (-8) and Summerville (-26).
Individual honors went to Greg Martin from RiverTowne who finished with a plus 10 score. Jack Heidenreich from Dunes West (+8), and Dick Ramsdell from Legend Oaks (+7) rounded out the Top 3.
