The eighth BOB tournament was
held at The Course at
Brentwood in Brentwood on June 22, 2013. This
annual event has the Dragons, Marin County, Oakland and San
Francisco 12 person teams fighting it out to determine which two
clubs will advance to play the Northern California Cup (NCC) in
September. In past years, the NCC has been the finale of
the winners of the Valley Cup (Monte Vista vs. Santa Clara/Foon
Hay) and the Challenge Cup (Sacramento vs. Weekend Drivers).
For the BOB, Marin County was this year’s host which is
alternated between the three other clubs. With a short
notice for determining the format to use, the host club was
prepared for either match or medal and ended up with a modified
match play. The result was great, with an incredible
showing of computer expertise! Great job by Noel Wong and
his excellent committee!
Whether individual scores were good or bad, the dining
experience after the round was one of the most excellent buffets
that all participants were raving about. Another great
The new BOB emerging champions were The Dragons, who displaced
the three time winning Oakland team. The Dragons scored
23.5 points followed very closely by San Francisco with 21.0
points and Marin County with 15.0 points edging out Oakland at
12.5 points. Points were determined using individual hole
scores matching each member of the foursome against each
other. With six matches in each foursome, a player could
win three to zero points depending on the result of holes
won. The top three winning teams were awarded gold, silver
and bronze medals respectively.
The host club thanked all participants for attending this outing
which was blessed with excellent weather and they acknowledge
the Oakland Club who will be hosts for 2014.
