FOILED in its title-retention drive in the WGAP Circuit, Forest Hills stamped its class to recapture the WGAP Cup crown in wire-to-wire fashion, beating Sta. Elena and Tagaytay Highlands by two in the grueling course-hopping finale of the Women’s Golf Association of the Philippines season recently.
The Antipolo-based squad topped the first of the three-part WGAP Cup, which featured the top five teams after the WGAP Circuit, at Valley Golf’s South Course under the High-Low format among Classes A and B players then sustained its charge in the next stage at the Ayala Greenfield where play shifted to Best Ball among Classes B and C players.
Forest Hills, led by team captain Tess Staub, pooled 5.5 points after two legs of the event sponsored by Champion and Hana, just one point ahead of Villamor and Fernando Air Base (4.5 points each) with this year’s WGAP Circuit titlist Sta. Elena at fourth with three points and defending WGAP Cup champion Tagaytay Highlands trailing the elite cast with 2.5 points.
