Cortie Dove of Ramona and his golf partners took first place at the National Kidney Foundation Cadillac Golf Classic National Finals this month.

The team shot rounds of 60-58-59 for a 39-under-par total in the 54-hole, four-person scramble tournament played Jan. 17 to 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.

The foursome bested a field of 50 amateur golf teams from across the country.

Participating with Dove were Mark Upchurch of Rancho Penasquitos, Dan Mezich of Del Mar, and Steve Jones of Tempe, Ariz.

Last year the foursome qualified for the Pebble Beach finals by finishing third place at the Cadillac Golf Classic at Whirlwind Golf Club.

Funds raised through the tournament help support National Kidney Foundation’s awareness, prevention and treatment programs.

The NKF Cadillac Golf Classic is supported by its title sponsor, Cadillac; national corporate partners PING, Golf Digest/Golf World, and One Car One Difference; and national promotional partners Bridgestone Golf, The Greg Norman Collection and Tiffany & Co. The Pebble Beach finals were also supported by HM Insurance Group and Anheuser-Busch.
