Granite Pointe’s Dave Belling wins tournament in Costa Rica

Belling nearly returned home with two trophies

Dave Belling is home from Costa Rica after finishing first in the World Cup Senior Golf Teachers Cup this month.

The Granite Pointe general manager was also competing in the United States Golf Teachers Cup, which he has previously won three times.

At this year’s tournament, Belling held the lead heading into the final round’s back nine before a double-bogey setback on the 10th hole prevented him from winning two trophies.

Belling also competed for Team Canada in round-robin play against Team Asia and Team USA. Canada lost, but Belling provided a highlight by firing an ace on the No. 14 par-three hole.

Belling was named one of the world’s top 100 golf instructors last year by the World Golf Teachers Federation.
