A Ramona golfer and his teammates bested competition from around the country at an amateur tournament at the famous Pebble Beach Resort last weekend.
Cortie Dove of Ramona, with his teammates Mark Upchurch of Rancho Penasquitos, Dan Mezich of Del Mar, and Steve Jones of Tempe, AZ, finished in first at the National Kidney Foundation Cadillac Golf Classic Finals.
The team shot rounds of 60-58-59 for a 39-under-par total in the 54-hole, four-person scramble tournament played January 17-19 at The Links at Spanish Bay, Spyglass Hill Golf Course and the Pebble Beach Golf Links at the Pebble Beach Resorts in Pebble Beach, California.
They bested a field of 50 amateur golf teams from across the country.
The foursome qualified for the Pebble Beach finals by finishing third place at the Cadillac Golf Classic held last year at Whirlwind Golf Club.
Teams played the fabled fairways and signature holes of the Monterey Peninsula: Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Course and The Links at Spanish Bay in the four-person, scramble format event.
Funds raised through the tournament help support National Kidney Foundation’s awareness, prevention and treatment programs. For more information about kidney disease or the NKF Cadillac Golf Classic Tournament series, visit www.nkfgolfclassic.org.
