    The 2015 men’s golf club champions are an awesome group. For some, this is their first club championship; others have won many such events, both here and in other states. Some are relatively new to the game of golf; others are seasoned competitors.

    Mike Verhoosky of Lockwood Folly has won his championship seven times in nine years. Peter Allen of St. James is a four-time champion and so is Tom Oxenfeld of Ocean Ridge. Mike Depauw has won the Sea Trail championship four times — and this year he also won at Carolina Shores.
