After months of intense interclub competition,  the team representing Tanglewood Park in Clemmons, N.C. claims the title of the 5th CGA Senior Interclub Champions.

Tanglewood got off to a great start by winning the first match of the day by seven points.  In the second match, Tanglewood took an early lead but ultimately held on to finish with a tie.
