FOR­EST Hills snatched the WGAP Cir­cuit crown in style, pulling off a rare sweep of all three di­vi­sions at home to rally from fifth to the top of the heap at the close of the eight-stage event at the Nick­laus and Palmer cour­ses in An­tipolo re­cently.

With a clos­ing nine-point haul, For­est Hills got past penul­ti­mate round leader Sta. Elena, Vil­lamor, last year’s cham­pion Ta­gay­tay High­lands and Camp Aguinaldo to emerge this year’s best in the course-hop­ping cir­cuit among the top golf­ing ladies from the coun­try’s lead­ing cour­ses.

For­est Hills edged Sta. Elena by the thinnest of mar­gins, 25- 24.

Elena, re­spec­tively.

Rose San Roque fired 39 points, Jonah Ila­gan shot a 36 and Yun Haeng “Grace” Cho and Ma. Con­suelo Conti backed them up with a pair of 34s as For­est Hills ruled Class A with a 143, seven points ahead of Aguinaldo, which scored a 136 with Sta.
