Out of more than 200 golf clubs, the Canyon Lake Saturday golf team made it to the final four of the Southern California Golf Association (SCGA) Team Play. The team secured its spot in the final four with its victory against the formidable Red Hill team on April 6.  

Against all odds, the road team displayed resilience, securing 12 out of 24 points. “Winning on the road at Red Hill is an extraordinary feat and a testament to the dedication and skill of our players,” team captain Jesse Beecher said. “Those 12 points were more than just numbers; they symbolized an incredible effort and determination that led to an essential tie.”

Building on the momentum of their road success, the team rose to the occasion, clinching a resounding victory by winning 20 out of 24 points. “This remarkable performance speaks volumes about the talent and teamwork within our club,” Beecher said.

Special recognition goes to the teams of Phil Garcia/Collin McCaffery and Brian Boothby/KK Beecher for their exceptional performances, each winning six points and leading the team to triumph.

“I want to extend my heartfelt congratulations to all our players for their outstanding contributions to this victory,” Beecher said. “Thank you to everyone who came out to support our team. It means a lot when our community rallies behind our players. When we play, we are playing for our club, our community, and our teammates.”  

The next round for the Canyon Lake Saturday team will take place on Saturday, April 20, at Bella Collina San Clemente. The winner will advance to the finals on Sunday, April 28, at Rams Hill in Borrego Springs.

SCGA Team Play began in 1900 and has grown to include more than 230 clubs and 8,000 participants each year. Participating clubs may enter one 16-person team in a weekday league, a weekend league, or both, for each qualifying course they maintain. Clubs are arranged in groups of four, and their respective 16-person teams play a series of six home and away matches within their assigned group. All competition includes both single and four-ball match play. Group winners then meet in single-elimination playoffs, culminating in an 18-hole championship.
