The final event that FCG held this past weekend is the FCG Step Up Tour Santee at Carlton Oaks Country Club. As mentioned in a previous recap, this course is more than enough of a challenge for even some of the best golfers in the world. The undulating fairways, fast and hard greens, coupled with the weekend’s winds to force players to think long and hard about their shot and club selection. Without anymore delay we move on to the champion spotlight portion of our event.
The Girls College prep division featured Jayden Hays from Alpine, CA. Hays became the champions after she shot 114(+42) from the yellow tees on the tough course.
