Terravita member to play at The Triangular Matches

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona – Terravita Golf and Country Club member Claude Therberge will represent Canada at The Triangular Matches at The Honors Course in Chattanooga, Tennessee on August 8-11.

Therberge, who holds the Terravita course amateur record with a score of 66, is a member of the 22-man Canadian Senior Golf Association (CSGA) international team. He and his teammates will compete against the U.S. and Great Britain senior teams in the four-day Ryder Cup format tournament, sponsored by the U.S. Senior Golf Association.

Therberge was named to the international Canadian team based on his performance at a qualifying tournament in Canada last summer, according to Brian Jeffery, captain of the CSGA team.

A medal play practice round will be held on Monday, Aug. 8. The tournament begins with foursomes in alternative shot play on Tues., Aug. 9. On Wed., Aug. 10 and Thurs., Aug. 11, competition features threesomes in single match play.

“We’re not surprised that Claude has been selected for this tournament, based on his golf accomplishments at Terravita,” said Steve Mallory, Terravita Golf and Country Club’s director of golf.

Therberge set Terravita’s course record on February 5, 2011, despite a double bogey and a one-stroke penalty. A 3-handicap, he is one of the North Scottsdale club’s top players.

Therberge, who is from Ottawa, Canada, is also a member of Rivermead Golf Club. He has been a member of Terravita Golf and Country Club for the past 11 years and was club champion in 2010.

Of Terravita’s 318 current golf members, 25 Canadians account for nearly eight percent of the total golf membership.
