Bandon Crossings was recently named one of the top 100 courses in the nation that can be played for under $150. The course, which opened in 2007, has received numerous honors over the last 14 years.

Val Nemcek became a two-time champion of the Crossings Cup at Bandon Crossings Golf Course last week, when he beat Ryder DeSteunder 2 and 1 in the championship match.

Nemcek, who is a 10-handicap, won despite DeSteunder shooting 4-under on the back nine on the way to a 1-over 73. DeSteunder played as a zero handicap for the match.

Nemcek parred six of the first eight holes on the back nine, and three of those became net birdies, helping him stay in front in the match. His gross score for the match was 84.

Nemcek won the eight-golfer final bracket The Crossings Cup, determined by points earned during the weekly Casual Fridays events.

He beat another past champion, Mark Nortness, in the semifinals while DeSteunder beat Greg Harless.

Their championship match came during last week’s Casual Fridays play.

Andrew Kimbell had the best gross score of the day with a 70, while Bryan Church and Sam McCullough both shot 72 and DeSteunder and Jim Wakeman had scores of 73.

Robert Webber had the best net score with a 69, while Kimbell and Gene Flores each had net scores of 70.

Results for the week are below.

Though the Crossings Cup is over for this year, the weekly Casual Fridays events continue.
